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."

Sadly, the crack smoking niggers that did this are actually lower iq than the special needs victim they were abusing.

This cop has no other choice.

A lot of these savages should be swinging from trees in the African jungles, not in the US prison system.

So niggers can fuck up a white retard and it's cool.  Not hate.  I white person can vote for Trump and he/she is a racist.

This has become one fucked world we live in.

Half a decade ago I lost a friend who decided to beat someone up who looked at his girl the wrong way (and they ended up together after...).  In doing so, he "taught" me that there are very few consequences dealt to people who act violently -- when their emotions were the cause.  (E.g., "domestic dispute.")

Not that I intend to use this new-found knowledge to perpetrate violence and get away with it -- but, I now know, the consequences aren't always there, even if the police get involved.  This helps in the understanding of vigilante justice, which still happens and is sometimes right.

That is still a hate crime.

Northern Lights's picture

Yes, as well as kidnapping, assault, extrortion.  Should go to jail for life.

WTF is "special needs" ???

Is this a typ of newspeak?

My kid's school has signs up that say, "Please don't use the R word."  I had to ask them what the R word was because I honestly didn't know.  Retarded is a banned word in public schools.

TwelveOhOne's picture

Wow!  Those signs are like the punishment, "Sit in the corner and don't think of a white elephant."

"HEY KIDS!!!  THIS THING OVER HERE IS TABOO!!!"  Do any of these administrators use their nostrils?

I join the outrage of honest Americans.  Time to put these pencil pushing desk jockey cops on the streets.  They are chosen for their desk jobs because they suck Rahm.

There was a report somewhere that this is the SECOND incident by these same pukes.  But can't find it now.  Scrubbed???

Liars ENRAGE me. Say you don't want white people going postal, say anything, but DON'T LIE. If you want a race war, this is how you get it. Holy shit what a bunch of cowards. Donut eatin' fat fuck bastard.

All white people deserve it. White people do not have any rights.

White people have been in a race war for the past 50 years. Most are just now waking up to that fact. The only difference between Progressive National Socialists and Nazi's are the Progressives have declared a race war against whites and the Nazi's had a race war against Slavs and Jews.

Dg4884's picture

You're lucky you are not the retard they fucked up.

Vageling's picture

Yeah... And how did that turned out? 

Stick your head up your arse. Trying the same thing over expecting beter results. Communism, socialism now progressive bullshit. What an solution! Welcome to the carousel. Accept you're a bit light. Attention problems? Always the colonial slavery, Hitler and Stalin. All there is. Like I said? Attention problems? 

We are always at war. Not like the old days. Propaganda wars, trade wars and your favorite race wars.

My fondest dream is that I shall live to see the day when no black person suffers the boot heel of white racism, because they're all back home in Africa, living in the beautiful prosperous nations that blacks build when there are no white people around to oppress them.

So what was his "special needs"?

grunk's picture

He needed to be black.

They say he was retarded, but retarded people all voted for Hillary so it doesn't make sense.

I love your moniker, for its ambiguity.  It could refer to the email server; or, to give her restaurant food, or certain court documents; or, prison food.

Sounds like the officers are special needs too, if they can't see the racial motivation to this.

MsCreant's picture

Great minds and all, said the same thing up thread. The police roll in on the short bus. Don't give them guns, they will fuck it up.

TwelveOhOne's picture

Yeah, definition of "hate crime" includes "crime against those with disabilities"!

Burn these demons at the stake!

All Whites are "special needs" cases these days.

If Trump doesn't turn this shit around it's going to be all out civil war with the Whites against everyone else.

And believe me, "everyone else" doesn't stand a fucking chance.

You sounded racist! and Im not even white...

Whole thing is fake.  I'm surprised they didn't behead him at the end.

Obvious divide and conquer distraction to get people outraged at blacks instead of pedophile cannibal politicians, #PizzaGate

_ArC_'s picture

How can a "special need" white kid participate in a fake video? Use your brain!

ebear's picture

Use your head.  If that were true they wouldn't be pulling the videos and tweets.

This story doesn't fit the official narrative, so they're doing everything thay can to minimize it.  Fact is, you'd never have heard about it if the perps didn't document their crimes.

Which leads to the following question:

What was their motive?  Were they expecting some sort of uprising as a result?  If that was their aim (however naive and quite frankly stupid) then it also qualifies as domestic terrorism.

Recall that ISIS posts similar videos exhorting muslims to act independently in aid of their cause, and we've seen several examples of where this has led.  If there's a difference here, I sure don't see it.


TwelveOhOne's picture

My friends' two teenagers like to watch videos of teenagers throwing food at each other while strapped to a chair (well, the one being thrown at, is).

It's cute, questioning their motives.  In my friends' case, I think it's because they're trapped in an educational prison matrix.  And, at least they aren't harming anyone else (other than those in the room, that crap is tiresome).

Just like the ragheads in the "Religion of Peace", the tolerant Left ... who are special needs Snowflakes ... passing out good vibes and tolerance everywhere they go ... Not. Advice to Libtards: just keep doing what you do for the entire nation to validate their vote for Trump. Of course, no comment from the MSM as this doesn't fit the narrative. Liberalism is a disease.

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."

Where is the Ho's Mom? Too busy with her professorship at Crack Whore University?

True Blue's picture

The real take away is that this is how a "good person" acts? As in "She's a good person; she does all her homework before going out with her little friends and kidnapping and beating helpless retards because of their skin color."

Build a 50 foot wall around the city and pump the river into it -turn the whole thing into a lake adjacent reservoir. What that city needs is about 50 of Mrs O'Leary's cows running about the place with California mandated, backpack contained, flamethrowers o' flatulence.

Tjeff1's picture

The whole "hate crime" is bs anyways.  

aardvarkk's picture

Yeah, but like Alinsky taught those shitbags, you have to make your opponent live up to his own rules.  They can't.  It's fun to watch them squirm.

MrBoompi's picture

You know hell froze over when I agree with Newt Gingrich.  But these commentors were either lying or have a bad memory because when Obama was elected the Republicans stormed off to a private meeting and said they would obstruct Obama every step of the way.  And they did.  Or at least they tried.  We seem to forget the republicans are in the pocket of the healthcare industry too so I wouldn't be holding my breath for anything remotely "affordable" coming from them.  However, we can all conclude the democrats are stupid horse's asses.
