Four black thugs in Chicago are in custody for torturing and beating a white man with “mental health challenges” in a video they streamed on Facebook Live. The Chicago Police Department said the “disturbing” and “brutal” video clearly showed the man being tied up, beaten and tortured “for the entire world to see” by a group alleging he was a Trump supporter.
“The video is reprehensible,” said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. It is unclear whether the victim even did in fact vote for or support President-elect Donald J. Trump.
In the video, one of the suspects can be heard yelling, “f*ck Donald Trump n*gger, f*ck white people, boy!” Yet, FOX 32 News reported the Chicago Police Department has yet to determine if the case would be investigated as a hate crime and currently do not believe it was politically motivated.
“I think some of it is just stupidity, people just ranting about something that they think might make a headline. I don’t think that at this point we have anything concrete to really point us in that direction, but we’ll keep investigating and we’ll let the facts guide us on how this concludes,” Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said.
However, community activist Andrew Holmes called the video evidence of a “hate crime.” Charges are expected to be filed in the next 24 hours.
“It’s quite a possibility that this is a kidnapping and that’s certainly one of the charges we’ll be seeking if it turns out to be that. But, he’s traumatized by the incident and it’s tough to communicate with him at this point,” said Chicago Police Commander Kevin Duffin.
The victim, whose identity we are withholding, was a classmate of one of the suspects and held hostage for at least 24 hours and potential as long as 48 hours. They said, because he is special needs, police considered him a high-risk missing person. Mr. Guglielmi said police believe he was taken in northwest suburban Streamwood and driven to Chicago in a stolen vehicle.
The group also verbally and physically assaulted the victim while forcing him to drink straight from the toilet. As he scoops up the filthy toilet water to drink, they slap him in the back of the head and yell abusive profanities.

At another point in the video, the victim is clearly held at knife point and told to say “f*ck Donald Trump.”
“It’s sickening. You know it makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that,” Supt. Johnson added.
