“F**K Donald Trump! F**K White People!”: Black-On-White Torture Attack In Chicago

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:30 pm

Fox 32 News in Chicago:

Investigators are looking into a Facebook Live video shot on the West Side that shows a group of people holding a young man hostage.

Chicago police told FOX 32 that four people are currently in custody.

Chicago police were made aware of this video Tuesday afternoon. A young African American woman streamed the video live on Facebook showing at least four people holding a young white man hostage.

The victim is repeatedly kicked and hit, his scalp is cut, all while he is tied up with his mouth taped shut. The suspects on the video can be heard yelling, “F*** Donald Trump! F*** white people!”

A graphic video, with cursing and violence, can be seen below. (Another version was removed from YouTube shortly before the publication of this post, and this one may be removed as well.) Within the first three minutes you can hear the quoted racial taunts, as well as the attackers striking the victim as he cries out in pain. The attackers continually refer to Donald Trump throughout the video.

Making this extra repulsive, the victim has special needs, according to Chicago P.D.

By their cruel, violent, and racist actions, these people demonstrate themselves to be animals.

If this were an incident involving white people torturing a black man while yelling “f**k black people” it would be a nationwide story. As it is, we’ll see whether it gains any traction. Folks in Big Media may decide that a white victim of Donald Trump doesn’t deserve any sympathy, and give the story a pass. If they do, they’ll only darken the cloud of suspicion they operate under every day.

  1. Racist evil.

  2. The Associated Depressed published this account:

    CHICAGO — Chicago police say they are investigating a video circulating on social media that shows several people beating a man at a residence.

    Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said at a news conference Wednesday that four suspects are in custody. Formal charges have not been filed.

    Johnson says the victim, who has “mental health challenges,” is recovering.

    Johnson calls the video “sickening,” and Police Cmdr. Kevin Duffin says the suspects made “stupid decisions.”

    Officers were called to a residence on the city’s West Side Tuesday evening where they found signs of a struggle and damaged property.

    Videos of the alleged incident were posted on social media. Police say it is too soon to make a determination if the attack was racially motivated.

  3. Not satire, actual quote:

    Although President-elect Donald Trump was mentioned, Chicago Police do not believe the crime 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,” Supt. Johnson said.

  4. They said if I voted for Trump I would be promoting racism and they were right.

    AZ Bob (f7a491)

  5. Certainly we wouldn’t want to rush to judgment. We can’t rule out the possibility that the white man did something to bring it on himself; perhaps it was his disability they didn’t accept rather than his race.

    Gabriel Hanna (51348d)

  6. Glenn Reynolds said it best:

    “THEY TOLD ME IF WE ELECTED TRUMP, RACIAL HATE CRIMES WOULD ABOUND. AND THEY WERE RIGHT.”

    AZ Bob (f7a491)

  7. Race was certainly a factor but it was not the victim’s race. It was the perps’ race. Am I allowed to say that, or should I check my privilege first?

    nk (dbc370)

  8. And it’s a fair bet that the story will be airbrushed (a la AP) and be buried quickly.

  11. Chicago public schools played a role.

    AZ Bob (f7a491)

  12. Even if that’s the case, supt. Johnson, make an example of them. We are not far from a lynching of a black thug who tripped and fell while trying to get away. Stuff like this will wipe away a lot of the goodwill from the incoming administration blacks in nearby states earned through depressed turnout.

  13. @Az Bob:Chicago public schools played a role.

    They’re depraved on account they’re deprived.

    Gabriel Hanna (51348d)

  14. This is an example of a problem that has been growing for years now: millions of young black wildlings who have received little in the way of parental supervision or discipline and who are left to run the streets, become gangbangers and who have no respect for the law, or authority… all made worse after years of Democrats throwing gasoline on the fires of racial hatred, animosity and class envy. It didn’t have to be this way.

  15. And the vid of the white guy beat up by blacks after he got out of his car (after a fender bender) at a bus stop by blacks.
    I will not let any gro on me.
    Time for local Bernie Goetz Brigades and Reginald Denny Avengers to arise.
    Enough.

  21. What sort of charges are these four youths liable to incur?

    Kidnapping probably. But what else?

    Curious if due the lack of permanent damage would they get a slap on the wrist?

    What would be the charge in Los Angeles if it’s different than Chicago?

    papertiger (c8116c)

  22. Patterico,

    have you ever seen a hate crime enhancement used against a minority that attacked a white individual?

    NJRob (43d957)

  23. The progression is reminiscent of the incidents regarding Sherri Papini, excepting that they recorded the thing.

    The recording itself became a governor on the violence, I think.

  24. Looks like President Obama has four new people to pardon within the next two weeks.

    JVW (6e49ce)

  25. The crazy thing isn’t that they recorded it. It is that it was posted for the world to see. They are of the opinion that this is something of which to be proud. Reminds me of the protesters out front of Trump Plaza after the election and one held a sign saying, “Rape Melania.” Stay classy progressives.

    AZ Bob (f7a491)

  26. This is precisely what you get when you choose as a society to condescend empathically.

    At some point, and I believe it will likely be quite violent, decent people will have had their fill and start independently enforcing basic parameters of behavior.

    I do love the clarity almost each day is bringing.

  27. “a white victim of Donald Trump”

    ?

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  28. Racist terrorism displayed on-line: 4 Black teens torture a handicapped White kid for 48 hours ostensibly for being the same race as President-Elect Donald Trump.

    This crime which thoroughly shocks the civilized consciousness is a textbook example of a ‘Hate Crime.’ These 4 vicious animals deserve the full force an outraged society can impose. The only mercy they deserve is a full measure of justice, quickly and firmly applied.

    ropelight (823bf3)

  29. Mr. Trump needs to get ready cause of the inaugurate is really really soon some say as early as later this month

    This is going to be lovely for America. Poor baby needs a fresh start with a good president that doesn’t rape prosperity every time it twitches in the cradle (yeah I’m looking at you Obama – you disgust me).

    Someone told me yesterday if you mix fireball and rumchata (1 to 1) it tastes like french toast.

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  30. Sorry, ropelight. One can only have a hate crime when the perpetrators are endowed with white privilege. That means of course the handicapped white guy is guilty of the most heinous of hate crimes; enticing poor minorities with his white privilege to the point of “justifiable retribution” for all the past crimes he and his ancestors perpetrated upon the victims of color.

    I’m sure the Southern Poverty Law Center will clarify the racist white cripple’s actions on the Sunday circuit on MSNBC. Check your privilege, ropelight.

    Unfavorably.

  34. all those ugly things he said was only cause they were doing black lives matter torture techniques on him

    in real life that’s not how he would talk i bet

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  35. mr happyfeet, unfortunately, that is their real life
    they’re not educated like us to have a sense of irony when they’re mugging for the camera, i think

  36. If this were an incident involving white people torturing a black man while yelling “f**k black people”

    No, the comparable thing is the name Donald Trump, like he’s backing the attack, like the hoaxes did.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/drunk-men-screaming-trump-attack-muslim-straphanger-article-1.2896163

    It was a hoax.

    This one, from the opposite political perspective, was real.

    Sammy Finkelman (6c2cdd)

  37. Actually in that case, a girl had been out late, as well as drinking, and she needed something to explain to her parents. The police actually gave her a number of chances to back down, but she didn’t, and she was arrested and charged.

    Looks like President Obama has four new people to pardon within the next two weeks.

    This will not be prosecuted as a federal crime. Most prisoners can’t be pardoned by the president. They are convicted unser state law. Even Judith Clark, who was just had her sentence reduced by Governor Andrew Cuomo (hey are calling taht a a pardon. At the federal level, nobody would)

    Sammy Finkelman (6c2cdd)

  39. The president will be hosting a farewell speech in Chicago on Tuesday. People have wondered what he might have to say, if anything, that is constructive about the murder rate and violence. This video adds a new dimension to the narrative. It will be interesting to see if/how he incorporates it into his remarks in any way.

    FWIW, my sense is that this reverse hate crime is NOT being typically suppressed in either local or national media. Arrests were quickly made and publicized. I think that means something, but I am not sure yet what. Rahm is constantly under fire by the black community. The previous (white) police chief was fired during the BLM hysteria. Decent people of all stripes are horrified by this attack on a defenseless special needs person. The outrage caused by the dissemination of this video might end up being useful to Rahm and Democrats who know have lost control of their party and are perhaps looking to regain some balance.

  40. UPDATE:

    Today the LA Times refused to cover the story.

  41. I love how it’s “stupid decisions”, like it’s just some wacky fun that got out of hand.

    matt d (d4aa6f)

  42. i think the chicago police sleazer is trying to tell people that if you do this sort of thing you’re not supposed to record it and put it on facebook

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  43. these people are like the bank robbers who drop their wallet as they’re running to the getaway car

    Cruz Supporter (102c9a)

  44. AZ Bob, when I access the LA Times website the hate crime article is there, posted in The Morning Report headline column under “Nation” @8:28 A.M.

    I also see the story headlined on CNN website and on ABC Breaking News website. This torture story is getting out there.

  45. ohnoes Meghan’s cowardly and increasingly erratic daddy is very very agitated

    Committee Chairman Arizona Republican John McCain said there is no national security interest “more vital to the U.S. than the ability to hold free and fair elections without foreign interference,” and that “every American should be alarmed by Russia’s attacks on our nation.”

    the cowardly disgrace-to-the-uniform is asking … SHOULD WE GO TO WAR

    McCain asked Clapper if the Russian cyber intrusion constituted “an act of war.” Clapper responded that constitutes “a very heavy policy call,” which, he said, “I don’t think the intelligence communities should make.”

    oh my goodness

    this is like defcon 1

    tell your children you love them a lot and do affection on them

  47. elissa,
    Yes the LA Times posted at 8:52 am, approximately five minutes after my post. (Sorry if I am as defensive as Trump but I have my credibility to preserve.) Still, there was no story today in the actual newspaper.

    AZ Bob (f7a491)

  48. Mr. Ace are do perspicacious

    The DNC isn’t acting like it thinks it was hacked by Russians. It’s acting only as if it’s in its political interest to claim it was hacked by Russians.

    bingo.

    But too subtle and nuanced for Meghan’s despicably cowardly daddy to grasp I fear.

  56. The DNC isn’t acting like it thinks it was hacked by Russians. It’s acting only as if it’s in its political interest to claim it was hacked by Russians.

    That was their only reason for going public.
