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."

WLM will only beat the shit out of BLM with their rifle butts after they run out of ammo.

what is scary is how fast the social media pulled this video from their sites.....pure censorship

Can't Sessions deal with this as a federal civil rights case?

That's what seems to happen in these police shootings.

First a state case, then a federal case.

Holder had to explain that the evidence was insufficient for a federal case in Ferguson.


Chicago cowards.

Not so much Megyn.  Search Megyn Underwear  or Megyn nudie and you'll come up with some true soft porn ...  Megyn in 6 inch heels, eagle spread in bed, but not worth 25M.

The Keystone Cops would do a better job enforcing the law in Shitcago.  Even when presented with VIDEO evidence the politically correct Democratic-Marxist police in Shitcago can't find the crime. That's the inevitable result of years of Democratic-Marxist Party political parasite rule in Shitcago and Shittynois. I won't even drive through Shittynois and certainly will never visit there or spend any money there.

It is no wonder that the productive workers are leaving Shitcago and Shittynois and that they have a declining population. Some day their whole population will consist of political parasites, government paid parasites and their African Free Shit Army with not a productive worker in the whole of Shittynois.

This is a great and really hilarious video on the kidnapping by Tommy Sotomayor. Infowars should have him on. And what he says about Chicago, which he refers to as Shit-Congo, is so true too.


And this is a really powerful Stefan Molyneux video on it.

I was born and raised there, and it is sad to see this once great city crumble into a morass of hate, crime and death. But, ever the optimist, I have high hopes for that half-white knight in shining armor who will come galloping into town, Eric Holder. Can you even IMAGINE how he will falicitate the availability of illegal weapons to his home peeps? Who knows, maybe in ten years, with a little luck, target practice and patience, all of the niggers will be dead...

If Obama had one more daughter, and three sons in addition to Trevon, the would look exactly like these porch monkeys.

Obama IS the third daughter...

Same here. Grew up in a burb just to the northwest of Morgan Park, right around 107th and Western. I was lucky to have been a kid there in that day, because those days are long gone. Endless happy memories. Now, its like a ghetto, crime is out of control, and ppl are just anti-Christian evil scum. Ppl say 'there you go again with your Christianity. Everybody knows the Christians mass murdered ppl during the crusades and they genocided all the Indians'.

Mm hmm, sure.

All I can say is when the Christian population declines (real ones wth a pure heart that endeavor to live a good life, respecting the person and property of others), the community collapses and all the statistics you want to see fall rise and the others you want to see rise fall.

Same here, started out near the airport, then Oak Park, Maywood, Bellwood, Glen Ellyn and finally Wheaton...nothing but fond memories...

This story is all over the world.  It just sunk Merkel in Germany.  It just elected 5-Star in Italy.  It just put Marine lePen in office.  And it just got Trump another 2.8 million votes in 2020. 

Liberal pieces of shit:  Enjoy your nightmare.  And that includes the piece of shit poser calling himself ronaldwilsonreagan, who has been trolling ZH day and night, and obviously doesn't have a real job and may have never worked a day in his miserable shitty life.

ronaldreegan has got that special (((attitude)))

inosent's picture

"the piece of shit poser calling himself ronaldwilsonreagan, who has been trolling ZH day and night" indeed. this is the first poster I actually had to stop and tell him/her I think they are pretty much an azhl, and after posting and reading all the vitriol from internet freaks for the last 20 years, that is making a statement. personally attacking a poster is generally bad form. But this guy is a waste of 1s and 0s.

bardot63's picture

He/she/it has attacked me several times.  I think I finally told him that his opinion of me is none of my business, or that may have been some other piece of shit.   I just wish he'd use a more applicable moniker, like Barry Muh-fuh Porch Monkey.

How does the prosecution prove their hate was due to his special needs status?

They give him math problems to solve?

They ask him to run a four minute mile?

Force him to play chess?


I think hate based on race might be a little easier to prove, cowards.

If white people had done this to a black Shillary supporter the entire Conporate Mainstream FAKE NEWS Media, the 535 Congressional war criminals, every Hollypedophiliawood shitlebrity and the race baiters would be screaming, condemning it as a hate crime and demanding the US Attorney Gerbil intervene.  But, because the crime was committed by members of Obama's Shitcago African Free Shit Army they are all silent.  And they wonder why RED state voters hate them so much.

oldguyonBMXbike's picture

This is just a fake video designed to get you outraged at blacks INSTEAD of those pedophile cannibals you mentioned...

What is the basis for that comment?

nukegm's picture

how disgusting what they did to the victim. there must be jailtime. no lesser charges.

too bad chicago cannot control its " yard apes "

DEMIZEN's picture

jail time?


they are going to get at least 20 years w/o parole for this, kidnappping, battery, hatecrime.  These are federal crimes.

nukegm's picture

my guess is that the charges will be pled down to lesser charges.

and the liberal media is doing their best to sweep this thing under the rug asap.

cheers comrade!


Dont foget theyre "teenagers". So..... slap on the wrist?

I wouldn't get my hopes up.  But a person can dream, can't they?

The Shitcago police department's solution to the African Free Shit Army problem is to let them murder each other indiscrimately.  But, there are far too many wounded and not enough deaths because of poorly aimed shooting.  So, soon the Shitcago police will begin conducting marksmanship training for the African Free Shit Army to improve the daily body count numbers. 

oldguyonBMXbike's picture

Actually, Chicago's solution seems to be undeservedly promoting 277 random officers to detective so they can add 1,000 cops to the roster....  I'm sure that will be effective...  NOT.

Can't wait to start making my own hoax videos...

This study sounds like it needs $500 million in funding for a PR firm in the UK to produce fake beheading videos.

Kidnapping is beaucoup mandatory time.

 This shit is just about to roll over, therefore some 'peaking' will likely occur for the next few weeks or even months.   Make no mistake however, everything 'Black' - from the front pages, online, in movies, public discourse, etc., from the zeigeist of the past 8 years, is coming to a close.
