Hate Crime, Kidnapping Charges Filed Against Four Blacks In Facebook Live Torture Case

Tyler Durden's picture

Update 3: Jordan Hill, 18, of Carpentersville; Tesfaye Cooper, 18, of Chicago; Brittany Covington, 18, of Chicago; and Tanishia Covington, 24, of Chicago; were each charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and residential burglary, according to the Cook County state's attorney. Hill was also charged with robbery and possession of a stolen motor vehicle.

Update 2: Here is CNN's Don Lemon explaining how this is not evil or racist...  “I don’t think it’s evil,” Lemon replied. “I don’t think it’s evil. I think these are young people and I think they have bad home training."

Update 1: Police have charged the four suspects with battery and hate crimes (though we note no specific allegation of race-related hate)...


The video was initially posted via Facebook Live under the account of someone named Brittany Herring and spread quickly via Twitter and under the hashtag #BLMKidnapping.

BLM is an apparent reference to the social justice group Black Lives Matter, which did not appear to have any connection to the video.


Police Cmdr. Kevin Duffin said that the suspects made "stupid decisions."

As we detailed earlier, it appears Newt Gingrich was right in his outrage at the hypocrisy of the situation surrounding the kidnap and abuse of a mentally-ill white teen by four black assailants. Despite the suspects shouting "f*** Donald Trump" and "f*** white people" Chicago police said today that they do not believe the attack was motivated by race, more likely due to his "special needs."

As KAKE.com reports, Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Thursday morning that they believe the victim was targeted because he has "special needs," not because of his race.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said it’s also possible that the suspects were attempting to extort something from the victim’s family.


However, investigators are still considering whether the vile assault falls under hate crime laws and admitted there were “terrible racist statements” used.

Additionally, the grandmother of the young woman associated with the live video on Facebook of the beating says her granddaughter "had her ups and downs," but is "a good person." The grandmother says the video doesn't reflect the young woman she raised.

Newt Gingrich was furious, warning that the U.S. was "at the edge of a terrible period" after a Facebook Live video surfaced in which a disabled Chicago teen is seen being tortured amid chants of "f--- Donald Trump."

"If this had been done to an African-American by four whites, every liberal in the country would be outraged and there would be no question that it is a hate crime," Gingrich said in an interview on "Fox & Friends."


"We are right at the edge of a terrible period — which I know President-elect Donald Trump wants to avoid — of having a deep bitter division in the communities in a way that makes America very hard to govern."

It's just a big misunderstanding. "Fuck Donald Trump" and "Fuck white people" is jigaboo code for "I find mentally challenged people distasteful"

It's just comforting to be able to assume these are Obama supporters.

..they could be his children.

But isn’t it time for the whites in River North to riot?

Oh, I guess Soros does not fund them.

So, what about the more serious kidnapping charge?   They are still going to do the long term time for kidnapping, right?

The term Hate Crime needs to go away.  All crimes are hate crimes - I hate blacks, I hate whites, I hate being broke, I hate working, I hate not having a job, I hate that rich guy, I hate Obama, etc. etc. etc.  

Just charge for the crime.  It's liberal to try to assign punishment to the motive.

Hey man, you're not sticking to the Gas Light Scripted False Narrative. Those Retards, I mean "Special Needs" kids can be dangerous.

Usually when a crime is committed against someone who is "at risk" like this person - it is charged with special  ircumstances and the offenders get the nastiest part of the book thrown at them --- as the perps should.

What racists forget is there cant be a lynching unless the victim is black....duh.

The defence council contends that is clearly not a crime of HATE, but in fact, a crime of LOVE

As in "They love to beat the crap out of retarded white folk"

I am also very pleased to note that ZH'ers have not made any racist comments about how much the second perp resembles Michele Obama

That's right, they're NOT Muslims.

There are major differences between evil and human trash. Also, the environment can, and usually does, have a more negative impact than family. The environment in some black “Americans” communities can be very trashy. African communities living in America don’t have these issues.

As always you are retarded Escrava.   Genetics is 99% of behavior.  

If you don't believe me I want you to take your dog and train him into chasing mice and meowing.  When he acts like a cat contact me. Until then.....you're full of excrement.

Escrava Isaura's picture

Exactly. These kids saw an easy target and their genes got the best of them. Now, behind bars, they are feeling sorry for such stupidity without even understanding why.

However, these same genes play the same role around religion, politics, ideologies, and so on, meaning, blinds them.

I’ll leave you with this quote as an example:

“Capitalism is the theory that the worst people, acting from their worst motives, will somehow produce the most good”. – John Maynard Keynes

"These kids saw an easy target and their genes got the best of them. Now, behind bars, they are feeling sorry for such stupidity without even understanding why."


Look at those photos. I seriously doubt any of them have ever felt sorry about anything, let alone this.

All 4 of them are 18 too, so will be charged as adults...have fun in the big house, bitchez!

And well you know what 'ol Curly Bill has to say to these fuckers:



Escrava Isaura's picture

First, these photos is to arouse bad emotions/trigger the biases, like you just did.

For you to know about these kids, or anyone for that matter, you’ll have to ask questions to people that know them, such as their teachers and so on.

Escrava.... paid Soros shill?

What is it with this guy?

Just a lost cause... Thumbs up.

Their teachers! WTF? How about speaking with their parents... er, guardians. I forgive your inept use of the English language. Illegal perhaps?

Soros smiling understands why.  Mob behaviour is unthinking and brutish, it seems premeditated, one of them knew him and it was streamed, but no rational individual acting alone would act like this because of the chances of being caught.  In their community hatred of whites and Trump is the norm, along with the Soros directed pent up frustration and anger.   Streaming it to their friends gains kudos.

Worst people? Worst motives? You don't get to claim as fact or truth something pulled out of your ass.
Good people every day compete in the marketplace for above average reward by risking their own capital. Or are you against regular folks bettering their life? Other than that the only person less qualified than JMK to speak on capitalism is the idiot quoting the financial illiterate.
Try this one "Statism: the false theory that everyone can live off of everyone else"

Dogs do not have any semblance of rational thought, it is only conditioning and instinct. Humans have the same, but they also have a lot of cognitive and meta cognitive abilities, includding rational thought, which makes all the difference in the world and your analogy is pure BS. You also do not take in to account tribalism which is conditional and cultural.

Whites, like me, are very capable of the worst kinds of behaviour and they also doit in packs and in mass, go to poor whte suburbs and zones, you will know what i mean, that is where the conditioning of huuman beings come in to play as well.

Now it is true, genetics play a large part in behaviour but not 99%. You can see many people that have the same genetic traits but behave completely different, and I am talking about whites behaving badly in forms of large groups, and blacks behaving very well also in large groups. The copper race, is mostly fucked, because they have the worst of the worst: genetics, conditioning, tribalism, and current conditioning, but you still see form time to time a mestizo with good social qualities and moral integrity.

BS. Twins studies have proven time and again that genetics nearly always trumps environment. See also "The Bell Curve."

Environments are men made, just like the culture, the language. We get our clues growing up within an environment.

Human beings are a product of “recent” evolution, meaning, we don’t have all the answers, and we might never have.

What we’re witnessing in our evolutionary journey is that, we can’t keep our massive “growth” impact going. As that happens, meaning, as we fail, our mystical (religion) and tribalism (nationalism) will take us in a much darker road.

That's man-made EI... man-made. I'm with you Brother (or Sister perhaps?). How can man expect continuous growth in a finite world? Just let me know when you believe you have the answer Grasshopper. Joe Walsh said: Sometimes, I can't help but feeling that I'm living a life of illusion.

This may come as a shocker but half the white population is below average.  Half of that lower half is really stupid.  In as much as whites make up a larger portion of the overall population you are going to find quite a few of what my Grandma used to call po white trash.  Look at your meth heads.  I’ve got some of them in my own family.  They are dumb and they are dangerous.  When the average IQ us 80, think about what half of that lower half is like.

Published any of those theories? Rational thought is what allows you to devise self-satisfying but incorrect reasons for that what you are saying is true, however reason demands the contrary. Be HEALED HopefulCynic... be HEALED! Emancipate yourself from mental slavery. Reach inside. REACH inside for Truth. Shed your self-loathing. Reject the false information that led you to believe that you are a sinner. You were born righteous HopefulCynic, and to righteousness you shall return. You have the power to overcome your genetics. Rise above your self-induced limitations. Love yourself Brother! None but ourselves can free our minds. Loose the bonds that keep you in a state of cognitive dissonance. Only you can prevent forest fires. (Don't know where the hell that came from) Geeezussss.

Stop defending evil behavior.  These four knew what they were doing and they knew it was wrong.

Your standard of evil is too low. These kids don’t meet this standard, in my opinion.

Come over to my place, buddy. I'll sit you bound and gagged, scalp you, kick you, torture you 'till you beg me to release you from your minature dog crate. I'll have little suprises for you that will have you braying like the ass you are. You'll love me for my treatment eventually because I have no evil intent, it's just a passion of mine.
