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."

"Special Needs" made this person an easy target; the crime was racially motivated.  I feel sorry for the young man.

larz's picture

Even though they say f@@k white people on the video we do not think it was racially motivated.. . With investigative skills that astute you can see why shitcago is the crimefest it is

These four will find inmates with "special needs" when they get sent to prison. Karma

antiseptic's picture

I believe all those people are 'special needs.' Maybe they were just jealous of his superior intellect?

 “I don’t think it’s evil. I think these are young people and I think they have bad home training."

Some outright depavity in that comment right there -- things are much worse than I thought .. and that takes some doing.

Yeah, I think its safe to say they had some bad home training.  Fuck ..

ah, so he had a special need to be beaten by blacks?

i get it now.

The idea of a hate crime is ridiculous in general.  Why are some crimes more crimey than others.  Hurt person or property or represent yourself fraudulentls (unless you are a bankster, of course) then punishment should be dealt - regardless its a white committing a crime against a black, a black against a white, or a gay against an asexual.  Shouldn't matter either way.

In a Country  where we have special rights for some and equal rights for none. We need laws that punish members of one race more harshly than members of another race. Hence the impossibility of Blacks committing acts of hate or hate Crimes.

Agreed, but once there is such a designation, use it appropriately. Don't arbitrarily apply different standards to what constitutes a hate crime based on the color of the skin of the perpetrator!

This same exact scenario, with skin colors reversed, wouldn't even be questioned by the DA, they would have been charged with a hate crime before they had their mug shots taken. Everyone knows that is true regardless of their deflecting. This is an outrage and the fucking cops had better start worrying about doing the right thing here instead of whether they can avoid criminals acting out vis a vie rioting because they charge these thugs with a hate crime. Appeasement doesn't work and certainly isn't the correct action to take with this sort of crime. If the police don't nip this in the bud with the possibility of long prison sentences, they are only encouraging more of this sort of racism by these BLM types!

UPDATE> FOX is reporting that these blacks have been charged with a hate crime.

I copy/pasted this somewhere else:

tptb are dividing us, we should not fall for it. "Hate crime" is one more verbal tool to shape our minds.

These folks can't be "rehabilitated"

20 years, out in 21 months, 5 years probation with fees they won't pay and conditions they will violate hundreds of times so they are in the system for life.

The retards were the ones doing the kidnapping and posting it on Facebook.

Leftists really have limited who can be racist.

You can NOT be racist if you are:
A special snowflake

That leaves racism to about 15% of the population, max. Therefore racism is NOT a problem.

El Vaquero's picture

Where I live, there are more Hispanics than white non-Hispanics.  Therefore, I cannot be racist;)

brain_glitch's picture

It is one of the flaring ironies of this circular logic. If you are a member of the dominant group you are born racist. Your words or actions do not matter. You are born racist, sexist,..


If racism comes from power (systemic racism, priviledge) and the power is in the people, as soon as a minority reaches 51% of the population or becomes dominant the race/power balance gets inverted. The oppressed become the oppressor, oppressor becomes oppressed. Same applies to race and gender ratios in professions, power positions, etc.


There will always be a group that has more power for a specific population or organisation of people. That group is by definition racist. Following this logic and definitions I don't understand how they plan to end racism.

El Vaquero's picture

This shit needs to end.  I get that you simply failed to include the /scarc, but the fuckers that actually think that way are going to be in for a rude awakening.  If you get some special snowflake who is claiming this and is going along with the "they did it because of his mental disabilities," come back at them with "Fine, they're ableists."  Turn their own retard shit against them.

No mention in the video of them being anti Trump or anti white. HOW WEIRD IS THAT the MSM should not mention this BIG PART OF INFORMATION.

Dark star's picture

Don't forget that it was a black cop who said that black people attacking a white man wasn't racist.

A second opinion might be in order.

quadraspleen's picture

"they be black so it can’t racist."

They not waycist. They retardist. Big difference

they targeted him because of his disability. They did it because he was white. End of story.


Turn the lights out for a few weeks and let these savages eat each other.

Don't forget to turn off the EBT.

Canadian Dirtlump's picture

Indeed. If the lights are out you can't run an EBT card through like I used to run visas through in the good old days. LOL.


If even supposedly smart white folks in the new york new jersey area were dumpster diving 1 day into superstorm sandy, then the new plantations that the democrats themselves have made don't stand a chance.

Skateboarder's picture

The outcome is so gnarly, even Hollyweird can't make a movie that can capture how bad shit will go down.

Hanging by a thread, but the eyes see a nice thick rope, for the going is good. What!? Break? This rope!? Hah!

And the dogs say amongst themselves, "it's a man eat man world out there!"

What I have yet to read is that they did indeed target him for his disability---> because he is weak and can't fight back. 

If you want to be a bad ass, go pull this shit on a white guy (or woman, over here asshole) who can fight back. Now that would be an accomplishment to post about to your crime syndicate freinds. That would be something to strike fear into the hearts of white people. Go do this shit to a marine. Now you got something. Now you got us thinking. 

But I am trying to think logically and these are stupid brain oxygen deprived at birth so called kids.

These are real special needs children right here. 

They set that little bitche's bond too low. $1,500? What the fuck?

She is safer in jail, I think.

That's just how they are: Tough as nails when there's just you vs. 3 or more of them...or with senior citizens...the handicapped...kids...

Anyone that looks them in the eye and shows them no fear they steer clear of.

The fact they live streamed a crime on Facebook leads me to believe all 4 are complete fucking retards. 

Can 4 retards commit a hate crime against another retarded person?
