FOX 32 NEWS – 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!”
Community activist Andrew Holmes was made aware of the disturbing video, which he is calling a “hate crime.”
FOX 32 was told the young man is now at a hospital being treated for his injuries.
What can I say about this that won’t get me in trouble?
Ok, how about a word of advice? If you’re a white person, get yourself a pistol in a decent caliber and a couple of spare magazines loaded with hollow point ammo and carry it everywhere you go. Even if you live in some anti-gun hell hole like NYC and especially in Chicago or Detroit.
If the “authorities” don’t like it, fugg’em, carry a gun anyway. As they say, better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6.
UPDATE: More on this from CBS News…
Police say the 18-year-old victimized in the video is a northwest suburban resident with special needs who had been reported missing.
In the video, believed to be from Tuesday, the victim’s clothes were cut, he was peppered with cigarette ashes, and then his hair cut with a knife until his scalp bled. Several people can be seen laughing and eating during the attack, in addition to making disparaging remarks about President-elect Donald Trump and using racially charged language.
Four people — two adult males and two adult females — are now in custody, and criminal charges are expected. It’s too soon to say whether the suspects would be charged with kidnapping or a hate crime, authorities said.
“He is an acquaintance of one of these subjects,” Chicago Police Cmdr. Kevin Duffin said of a connection between the victim and the suspects. “Apparently, they met out in the suburbs. These subjects then stole a van out in the suburbs and then brought him into Chicago.”
The victim was treated and released from the hospital, police said. He is with his parents.
No white riots, arson, beating of random blacks or looting is expected to occur, because that’s the difference between civilized people and animals.
