Four thugs are in custody after kidnapping a man and torturing him live on Facebook.
In the video you can see the gagged and tied man being belittled while the thugs say racist things about Donald Trump and white people.
As InfoWars reports, “The victim is repeatedly kicked and hit while forced to denounce white people and Donald Trump.”
You can hear the black youth say “f*ck Donald Trump” and “f*ck white people” in the background.
In another video, the victim is forced to drink toilet water while being threatened.
A video of the torturous ordeal was streamed through Facebook Live by a user named Brittany Herring.
The man is said to be mentally disabled.
“It's sickening. You know it makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that,” Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said.
Fox Chicago reports “On Tuesday afternoon, police officers spotted the victim walking on a street on the West Side wearing shorts, Guglielmi said. Because it was unusual to see a man in shorts in the cold weather, the officers stopped to talk to the man, who appeared disoriented, and he was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injuries.”
The report also says the victim was held hostage for at least 24 hours and as long as 48 hours. Community activist Andrew Holmes is calling the video a “hate crime”.
Police also don't 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.
