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."

What else can you expect from the free roaming chilruns of African Free Shit Army crack whores, gangbangers and pimps?

The reason why it took so long to come up with this charge was that the politicians in Chicago were trying to find a way to not seem so bad. They were looking to lessen the crime. If this was white on anyone else, HATE crrime would be set in 2 minutes.....


Yea, so why no kidnapping charges. Anyone else would be 25 to life. We need to decide on open season regs for dindus. As dylan said, the times they are a changin.

I saw the full video on LiveLeak.

Actually, it didn't surprise me at all. It just looked like a relaxing "at home" version of the knock out game.

With a big, solid stamp of approval from people like Obama, Michael, Sharpton, Don Lemon, the chubby billionaire talk show hostess whose name I can't remember, libtards, celebtards, educators and BLM.

Soros is starting to get some nice return on investment. Smart little Hungarian.

Hillarys Server's picture

Yeah, she's that billionaire race baiter, thanks.

And she was nodding when Michael said "no hope" too.

WOW!  put the shoe on the other foot and have 4 white teens kidnapping a black special needs person and then shout Fuck Hillary Clinton and Fuck Black People and stream it over the net.  Do you think they would consider that a hate crime and be a bit more visible and vocal about it on the mainstream media?  All I can say is that I have no white guilt and this whiny black lives mattrer movement and the crying about racism only creates agitation and disdain for black people.  They need to realize that 95 percent of the black murders in this country occur at the hands of other black people.  I think i'm done with listening to the hype.  It's far more sensationalism than it is reality.  it's just another excuse for them to get more handouts.  Suck it up.

Don't worry, that video is already in the works.

Facebook leadership in charge of the live streaming functionality division should face some jailtime for allowing this to go on for so long. There is no reason this could not have been detected and reported. 100% for sure if this was a black boy and a bunch of whites the table would have been turned and wouldn't have been allowed to go on for so long.

oldguyonBMXbike's picture

Wasn't that the plan for this fake video the entire time?  More censorship?  Nazi much?

Hillarys Server's picture

Blacks can't be racist because racism equals prejudice plus power. And when did a crackhead standing over you with a knife ever have power?

floosy's picture

Just up until the point the crack head gets a swift kick the nuts.  After that, not so much.

Joebloinvestor's picture

Yeah Don blame it on inadequate toilet training.

But the grandmother who raised her, said she was raised well.

Grandmother: 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.


Wrong: video is the perfect reflection of that young lady.  In fact, there is no better reflection than video with accompanying speaking audio

Just to be clear, Drunk Don Lemon's saying it's not evil to beat on someone for being retarded. This implies that it would be evil if four retards beat up on a black person - funny and disorganized, but evil. Don also is quoted as saying that he was "too drunk to taste this chicken". Why is he still on TV? Why did I ever know he was on TV?

Keep out of Houston Don Lemon!

My autistic son and I wouldn't want any un-evil things to happen to you....

If they do not charge them with a hate crime, they will lose all credibility for charging whites with hate crimes.

DirtySanchez's picture

Why does don lemon have a voice in this?

A drunken half breed who takes it up the ass, sucks and swallows more jiz than anderson cooper,hates white people, and pretends he's knowledgeable does not in any way make his opinion count.

Those savages are guilty.

Ask Joe Biden.

Negros who are able to speak in complete sentences get all the good jobs no matter if what they say is utter bullshit.

Niggers claiming niggers being racist isnt racist.  Got it.

That fat ignorant bitch talked the entire time is the only thing I saw.

"These were probably just nice kids who did something a little wrong" 

was the sentiment that I came away with .

dexter_morgan's picture

Yeah, I mean all nice kids do this shit, right? Perfectly acceptable.......

activepatriot's picture

Because we heard them chant "Fuck special needs people!"???

Man they take us for idiots.

Meat Hammer's picture

If they keep this shit up some good ol' boys are gonna start them some coon huntin'. They should hang a sign around each dead nigger's neck that says, "For every 1 white person 10 niggers die."

They'll get the message.

That idiot Don Lemon should be sent back in time to be a slave. Fuck him and idiots like him. I am all for blacks being treated equally as everyone but if you are going to be so blatantly racially biased like this for something this bad then you deserve to be a fucking slave. 

Mabe we will get a white on black incident like this with 18 year olds or younger and hear how it is evil by that racist fuck.

Anyone who says he doesn't see evil in this video is a psychopath.

Just send him to Zimbabwe. Accomplish the same thing but without all that time travel nonsense

American need to take their country back.

The current dictator is doing everything he can to make sure democracy won't happen in America and the propaganda machine is in full support of it.

dexter_morgan's picture

Seems to me picking on a special needs kid is even worse than doing it as a Trump hating thing. 

Special needs? WTF - kinda like the old saying - pick on someone your own size and see how that one goes you cowardly racist motherfuckers. 

dexter_morgan's picture

Plus, what about the kidnapping aspect? That carries heavy punishment - charging them with that also?

ironmace's picture

I thought kidnapping was a federal crime, where is the FBI on this?

Too busy burning the evidence of Hillary's emails - there's a lot to get through before the 20th you know ;)

Comey is still speed reading emails.... or something like that.

CRM114's picture

The Chicago authorities and the MSM are going to try and get you to forget that.

_SILENCER's picture

I guess you can't say Retarded anymore than you can say Nigger.

Well, I think a bunch of degenrate niggers picked on a weakling retard.

I'd like to see these yard apes try this shit with real men.

They won't, of course, because feral negroes are cowards that prey on the timid.

Just like muslim pig-dogs.

The black lives blather crowd will insist the the Chicago 4 be unconditionally relseaed, or the city will burn

Good, burn that shithole, you fucks. Then freeze all winter.

Looks like Obama and his crew are getting the hate they wanted.

navy62802's picture

If they keep it up, they'll get the hate they didn't want, too.
