Hate Crime: Four Black Chicago Teens Accused Of Kidnapping & Torturing A Mentally Disabled White Man While Streaming The Attack On Facebook Live (Video)

Video After The Jump

Four African Americans are in police custody for their alleged involvement in the kidnapping and torture of a mentally disabled white man, while streaming it on Facebook Live.

The Chicago Sun Times reports that the 18-year old victim had been reported missing by his parents, who had not seen him since they dropped him off at a McDonald's in Schaumburg, Illinois on December 31.

Streamwood police said the parents started “receiving text messages from persons claiming to be holding him captive.”

All four assailants are 18-years old. One of them knew the victim from school.

They reportedly took the man to an apartment on Chicago's West Side. In the video you can see the victim's scalp had been cut. His tormentors kick, hit and harass him. At one point telling him to “kiss the floor, b!tch,” “nobody can help you anymore.” and force him to say ‘I love black people.’”

In another part of the clip they yell "f*ck white people" and "f*ck Donald Trump."

Brittany Covington, one of the assailants, streamed the attack on Facebook Live.

After being held against his will for 24 hours, the teenager was released. He was discovered by police walking on the street in cold weather wearing shorts.

“They saw clearly that this individual was in distress and he was in crisis. And they cared enough to do something about it," Capt. Steven Sesso said.

He was taken to the hospital and an investigation was launched. The nature of the victim's injuries were not released, but he is "traumatized" by what happened, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

It didn't take long for police to connect the torture video they saw circulating on social media Tuesday, December 3, to the victim.

In this still frame from a YouTube video, a gagged man is harassed by two men, one of whom cuts open the sleeve of the victim’s sweatshirt.

“It makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that,” Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said. “I’ve been a cop for 28 years and I’ve seen things that you shouldn’t see in a lifetime, but it still amazes me how you still see things that you just shouldn’t."

Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson, joined by Area North Detectives Commander Kevin Duffin and Harrison District Capt. Steven Sasso, discusses the abduction and torture of a mentally-disabled man.

Charges against the four kidnappers have not yet been decided, but police did not rule out classifying the attack as a hate crime.

They already made errors in the fame story, releasing a mugshut of another person...calling the girl fliming brittany herring when the name the girl on the video still is brittany covington...they released a mugshot of brittany davis, and she aint even from nowhere near chicago....how do the media and the police department confused those 2?

Then they say rhe girl in the "kidnapping" video is out on bail, then she was out on bail back in october of last year

They did that bullsh!t so fast they didnt get the story right

Ironically that dylan dude said in court "dont get me wrong, i have no remorse for what i did. I havent even shed a tear" speaking of the 9 church members they killed....YALL SOME DUMBASS SHEEPS
