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."

The problem is that TPTB are dividing us by encouraging Dindu thuggery.

So it's either YTs defend themselves and in doing so formally declare the race war, or roll over for Dindus.

Meanwhile, the non-Dindu blacks are silent and, in so being, are complicit.

brain_glitch's picture

Yes, they are encouraging Dindu thuggery just like they are encouraging the migrant wave in Europe. And what do both things provoke? White right wing rising. I believe that is what they are pushing on us.

Defending yourself from a criminal is just and necessary, but how are you going to defend yourself from the color of someone's skin? 

I've been actively looking for non-dindu blacks and not all of them are silent.

Check on youtube Thomas Sowell, Tommy Sotomayor, Some Black Guy (the channel's name), others I can't remember right now. That Farakhan dude and other religious leaders in black communites critize openly the thug culture.

I've heard many interviews of blacks talking about racism, trump, etc, that were extemely thoughtful and absolutely non-dindu. Famous and regular blacks too. My favorite is this one: Media tries & fails to pressure Wayne into supporting Black Lives Matter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhfB_QWy4DA

I believe the police are being very niggardly with their use of hate crime designations in this case.

Word for today:  Niggardly.  Go look it up.  Doesn't mean what you think it means.  Once you know what it means you'll find a million different uses for it in your life.

LOL! The D.C. comptroller was fired years ago for appropriately using that word in a public meeting. The Obama son morons who fired him didn't understand the meaning of niggardly.

You know, I think I remember that incident.  Difference between using an urban dictionary and a real dictionary.

Marion Barry's DC a complete joke

True. But they certainly weren't niggardly.

So It Goes's picture

Marion Barry:

I lived in DC when Barry was in office.

Here is a true story.  After a once in 5 year snowstorm (1996 I think), there was NO snow removal in spite of this task being funded. The Barry administration's total corruption was on full display.   As I was trudging up Connecticut avenue above the Dupont Circle in 2 feet of snow, I witnessed a large firetruck stuck in the snow spinning its wheels furiously. Realizing that if you needed emergency services none were available as the streets were unpassable,  I said to myself in a soft voice, "Fucking Barry".  A black guy nearby overheard me and in a louder voice shot back "it's not his fault".  I knew to shut up and just move on.

Charles Nelson Reilly's picture

I remember that... I was a sophmore in college.  Nothing got plowed and the snow didn't get moved til it melted... a complete and total shitshow.  However, DC was a lot cooler back then. Nobody gave a shit what you did and you could basically walk into any bar when you were under 21 and get loaded.  Now it's a bunch up stuck up white liberals and a few more dozen wealthy blacks who are ripping off their own people.

"Fucking Barry" -- the more things change...

The kicker to this story is that 'Mayor for Life' Barry was vacationing at the Super Bowl far away from frigid DC during the entire shitshow.

It's a word that predates the word Negro so there isn't any way to stop it's use, yet.

NoDebt's picture

Exactly right.  Comes from a completely different root word.  Still, I wouldn't be slinging this word around too much these days.  I just thought maybe some people would appreciate a little vocabulary expansion this fine afternoon, that's all.  You gotta admit it's a pretty fantastic word.

i wouldn't advise telling guys their wife looks like a pygmalion either. lulz

 It can be traced back at least to the Middle English word nigon, which has the same meaning, and is perhaps related to the Old Norse verb nigla, which means "to fuss about small matters"

Careful - it can also mean illiberal, which may apply to many on this list...

Funny that the opposite of "you niggardly son of a bitch"  is the statement "that's mighty white of you".

Francis Marx's picture

The word "Nigger" is by far one of the most loved and hated words in the dictionary.

Manic by Proxy's picture

Of late I have been quite niggardly with the use of the word "niggardly". Android auto spell happily fills that word in when I begin with "nigga-". To illustrate correct usage: Chicago Police are very niggardly in using racism to characterize black-on-white crimes. But niggas are not niggardly in being niggas". That concludes today's word power lesson.

Everything online is being censored more everyday. I had to go to a rather old dictionary to find Semetic. That to could disappear soon. I hope Trump breaks that whole UN web control thing into spacedust. I looked for conservative judges, and the search engine just put up hollywood, beauty contest, pie eating, wine, and Liberal Judges. It really would suck to have to use the wayback machine for everything you look up! Oh the howls that would ensue if 4 white kids kidnapped and beat up a tardy black guy.

Proofreder's picture

No, not tardy black guy -

Mainstream press would have it as:

Severely Disabled Man Set Upon, Kidnapped, Tortured and Left to Die Wandering the Streets - Four White Supremacists Charged With 50 Years each in Prison at Hard Labor for Hate Crime.  60 point bold with graphics.

See, didn't even have to mention the victim was a black, brown, or green guy.  Hey, how about a similar headline but with Four BLM activists. ???

Would it be necessary to state the race of the victim ???  Well, maybe in Chicago ...  or Detroit, or

I've been telling my son that for months.  He finally looked it up and was surprised I was right.

I think it means miserly (or Jooishly) and I use it all the time in a provocative way to make liberals look stupid and call them racists.

JRobby's picture

They have so much publicly seen evidence that they have to charge "hate crime". Kidnapping is a pretty serious federal offense.

If they can get it sealed, they will try to drop the hate. They might get it sealed because of the level of public polarization.

Generally, it is a white person's charge.

Nominaly there are way more white niggers.

Are you quoting the Honorable Senator and Grand Kleegal Robert Byrd, Liary Clinton's mentor? Maybe he was an Exalted Cyclops, but I'm not going to give him the internet ping to find out.

you know, I find this crime as reprehensible as most but do you, my fellow zerohedgers realize there are black people on this site?  I'm as outraged as anyone but does this post not contain as much hate being spit from the mouths of the animals that tortured that poor kid?  

kinda sucks that there seems to be just as much hate here from some posters...

we're living in really interesting times now, and it's not inconceivable that one day, when you least expect it, a "nigger" may be the only person there to get you out of a jam

Al Huxley's picture

It's the PC, white-guilt-ridden "it's not a hate crime, it's not racially motivated, don't read to much into the phrase 'fuck whites'"  BS by CNN, etc. that's causing the outrage, as much as the crime itself.  Crime's crime, everyday worse happens than this, it's the bullshit response and what it says about where society's going, and who's driving that's so enraging.

Dancing Disraeli's picture

I've lived around 'em my entire life.  They've definitely gotten me INTO many jams, but I have never even come close to meeting one, who had the slightest inclination to get me out of one.  Whites, however, as a matter of course have helped me many times-- pulling me out of a ditch with their pick up truck when my car slid off the road, etc.  And they do it automatically.  Just as there are occasionally albino cockroaches, I suppose one could eventually have a similar altruistic experience with a black, but I've never seen it.

Actually it's becoming more likely we'll see big civil clashes, if not war.

I will solve the problem with an innovate solution: Every nigger that volunteer to be spaded or neutered we would refill their EBT card for a one payment of an aditional $5,000 and we will cover the procedure wtih our taxes; with a bit of luck, in 50 year the guetto nigger thug infestaction will take care of itself

A King went on a trip with one of his maidservant. On their way, the maidservant pleaded with the King :"please don't call me maidservant when we get to your host home". The King replied: " I promise not to call you my maidservant but don't behave like a servant when we get to where we are going". On there way, it rained. When they arrived, their host welcome them and the King went to his assigned room and the "King Partner" went to the room assigned to him also. Late at night, the hostess screamed "who is behaving like a servant here" cos she saw clothes spread over the fire place.

The King went to his "Partner" and said "I am not the one that called you servant but your behavior"

I am black and we deserve any name calling today. If only the Venerable Donald J Trump can do us Nigger a favor by returning some of the bastards like these scumbags back to Africa.

I will personally erect a place of adoration for him here in Lagos.

Brilliant comment (sarc). How about fuck irrational criminals? Banksters, globalists, criminals, and thugs come from every race and religion. I say it's better to label people by their criminal acts and their irrational beliefs.

Of course this is wrong, attacking an innocent person... With that said, whites must pull together all their courage to keep achieving in the face of 8 years of racism.

So when blacks give their lives stopping black on white racism we will call it even.

it does explain a lot though. you'd have to be retarded to be white and be in chicago which apparently he is. i have no sympathy for the chicago cops at all. i have no sympathy for any whites left in chicago. they deserve the shit town they have.
