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."

John R.K. Howard, 19, of Keller, Texas, was originally charged with forcible sexual penetration by a foreign object after prosecutors said he kicked a coat hanger into the victim's rectum during the October 23, 2015, incident at Dietrich High School


That sounds like standard football hazing and just pure bad luck. How does one kick a coat hanger into someone else's rectum intentionally. The fact that you chose to leave that fact out of your comment means you're a lying piece of shit.

Karma is a bitch.

Enjoy the toilet water in prison, niggas, while you degenerates are on your knees, getting your azzholes poked daily for about 40 years.
And Don't forget to scream out, "I Love My Big Black Daddy!", while you are lapping it up...don't want daddy mad!

Nobody, not even their crack whore mothers, knows the identities of these four African Free Shit Army chilruns fathers.  That is because Democratic-Marxist welfare rules deliberately excludes fathers from families.  These four chilruns, and their crack whore mothers, have been supported by welfare, stolen from productive working Americans, their entire lives.  Productive Americans will continue supporting these four AFSA chilruns when they are imprisoned.  If they ever get out of prison productive Americans will continue supporting these AFSA chilruns because they are unemployable criminals.  They are at least the fourth African Free Shit Army generation totally supported by welfare stolen from productive Americans. 

The best thing that will happen after the economy collapses is that the African Free Shit Army will lose their entire income and benefits streams.  There won't be any more AFSA welfare payments.  There won't be any more AFSA food stamps.  There won't be any more AFSA free healthcare.  There won't be any more AFSA free housing.  The AFSA for once in their useless lives will be faced with either working or starving out on the mean streets.

According to the Chicage police he was targeted for his special needs, not for his race. I guess that makes it less bad then. WTF.

From the "looks " of the four they look special needs. It was a social grassroots party that got out of hand I guess.. Not familar with knives I guess....

Black neighborhoods in America will become "No Go Zones" like the Muslim no-go zones in France and Sweden. Police and the government won't be able to govern and the neighborhoods will become unbearable, even for black people.

Middle class Blacks see that and see TRASH, not sure why the black cop can't see it.

Not buying it. The girl on the left looks like she is 8, not 18.

This looks like fake news designed to create racial tension... And ZH is playing along, sadly.

Is this creation of racial tension the work of radical zionists? I think so.

Hey Gramps, have you ever lived around black people and interacted with them on a daily basis, in environments where they are more numerous?

You don't sound like someone who has lived that life.

Sounds more like virtue signalling and 'he dindu nuffin' to me.

Here, have  a red.

Couple of comments from a White man who lived in dindustan for almost 20 years and was a minority there among them.

1. All blacks are tribal. From the top to the bottom. Don Lemon is not the first black 'celebrity' to excuse or minimize black violence. His stance on this doesn't suprise me a bit. Blacks will always defend another black (even a stranger) if that black is being attacked by another race (any other race).  I've seen a one on one fight between a black and a _____ (take your pick), where the ____ got the upperhand and blacks just jumped in (strangers) and started kicking the shit out of the _____ that was beating the black combatant in a fair fight. Race comes first for them, over all else. They are the  most overtly racist people I've ever encountered. They just don't give a fuck about non-blacks.

2. Empathy? Intelligence? Social order? Lawful behavior? You won't find much in dindustan.  No matter where in the world that dindustan may be or what language is spoken there. There may  just be a genetic component to this? Maybe?

Google: Negroes in Negroland

or spend any amount of time studying up on the history of Africa.  It's people, laws, customs, etc. You will shocked and horrified at what you didn't learn in school about Africa. I promise you. And this is where the black race comes from. Africa is who they are.  It's their culture.

Of all races and cultures, I don't think any two could possibly be more polar opposites than Africans and Europeans.

We should have picked our own cotton? Goddamn right.  Think of all  the White people who wouldn't have died fighting about blacks and at the hands of blacks. Of all the White women raped by blacks since their importation.

Diversity, at least in these United States, has been an unmitigated disaster. Africa is a disaster. Importing Africa ANYWHERE was never a good idea.

If White men were even a fraction as 'racist' as the (((media))) loves to claim, there wouldn't be any blacks living in CONUS right now.

And thiis crime would never have happened and Colin Flaherty would be a sports reporter.

I leave you all with this final thought, inspired by John Lennon:

Imagine there's no niggers. and that our cities our safe. 

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.

Never marry a black person or even latino. They are way behind in development than the white person. The offspring will always have a smaller IQ than the white parent.
