A hate crime in the US

News.com.au reports:

FOUR teenagers will face hate crime, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated unlawful restraint and aggravated battery charges after allegedly capturing a man with special needs in Chicago, tying him up and torturing him in a sickening Facebook Live video.

All four suspects, named as Tanishia Covington, Brittany Covington, Tesfaye Cooper and Jordan Hill, are 18 years old.

The video, which aired on Tuesday for about 30 minutes, showed the victim bound and gagged in the corner of a room while the attackers kicked, slapped and taunted him. They also cut his hair with a knife until his scalp bled.

“F*** Donald Trump, f*** white people!” one of the suspects yelled at the victim. “I should knock your ass the f*** out right now. Stand up, boy!”

A girl behind the camera could be seen laughing at the scene in front of her and puffing on a cigar. “My sister says this is not funny, y’all,” she said.

“S**t, it’s funny to me. Tell Donald Trump it’s not funny,” one of the others replied.

One of the suspects told the victim to “Kiss the floor bitch”, adding “Nobody can help you anymore”.

Later, a man told him “I’ll torture the f*** out of you” and said “There’s going to be a murder here”.

What terrible terrible people. May they go to prison for a very long time.
