Chicago police have arrested the four people that took part in the gruesome attack after they video themselves torturing a white male victim. The bound and gagged kidnap victim is repeatedly kicked and hit while forced to denounce white people and President-elect Donald Trump.
Investigators are looking into the Facebook Live video showing 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. FOX 32 was told the young man is now at a hospital being treated for his injuries.
While the video was being live streamed on Facebook, a lot of people reported the video but Facebook decided that it did not violate their Community Standards:
One of the participant’s Facebook page is still viewable, you can find it here:
Here’s a BEFORE shot of Brittany Herring
And here is an AFTER shot when Brittney got arrested. It’s questionable they’ll let her smoke cigars in prison. But maybe she can keep her wig.
I am sure she’s just a misunderstood minority, and if we haven’t been in her shoes we shouldn’t judge her… Of course, white folk don’t generally commit violent acts and put them on facebook live, I’m assuming it has something to do with our white privilege being a danger to us.

And the Twitter response of the Chicago Police on the case, because yes, cases can be solved on Twitter, no?
And just as a reminder, here’s the video about another hate crime we need to remember, a much much worse offense that still begs for full justice served:
