HORROR: 4 thugs kidnap, torture white man, shout ‘f**k white people’–but police aren’t sure it’s a hate crime

**Warning for extremely disturbing content.** 

Is it a hate crime if four black people kidnap and torture a mentally challenged white man while shouting phrases like “f**k white people” and “f**k Donald Trump?”

The Chicago Police Department is still looking into that, but what we do know is that Brittany Herring and three other people, two of them males, kidnapped the victim from a Chicago suburb, stole a van, and brought him to an apartment on Chicago’s West Side.

They then proceeded to cut the duct-tape bound victim’s clothes, pepper him with hot cigarette ashes, cut his hair with a knife until his scalp bled, choked him and forced him to drink toilet water, among other things. The torture lasted between 24 and 48 hours, 30 minutes of which was recorded on video.

During the attack, people can be seen laughing, eating, smoking what appears to marijuana, drinking alcohol and shouting expletives, including the ones mentioned above.

The video was posted to Youtube, but has been taken down by the company for violation of policy. It has since been posted on Twitter, including the segment where the victim was forced to drink toilet water.

At a news conference Wednesday, Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson told reporters, “It’s sickening. It makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that. I’ve been a cop for 28 years, and I’ve seen things that you shouldn’t see in a lifetime, but it still amazes me how you still see things that you just shouldn’t. I’m not going to say it shocked me, but it was sickening.”

Of course, were the races of victim and perpetrators reversed, this would be the lead story on every media outlet in the nation for days, but nevertheless, thanks to the alternative media, this will be a difficult one for the mainstream media to cover up. Fox News has already covered the incident, briefly on Tucker Carlson’s show as the story was breaking, and more in depth on The Kelly File.

Earlier Wednesday, investigative journalist Mike Cernovich helped make the video viral on his Periscope account before it was taken down from Facebook. Cernovich also provided this link to Herring’s Facebook page archive. On it, many commenters of all races strongly condemn the group’s actions.

So, was this a hate crime?

During the press conference, a Chicago police official answered that question by saying, “We’re still investigating it and if the facts guide us to that, then we’ll certainly charge them appropriately.”

Naturally, someone asked the official whether or not uttering phrases like “f*ck Donald Trump” and “f*ck white people” might be a clue inside someone’s hateful motivations.

“That will certainly be part of whether or not we determine this a hate crime or whether or not this is stupid ranting and raving,” the police official responded.

I mean, most reasonable people might come to the conclusion that saying “f*ck white people” while actually torturing a white person might constitute a hate crime, but, you know, it could just be “stupid ranting and raving.”

The four have been arrested and are now in custody awaiting charges. One was an acquaintance of the victim.

Police have confirmed that their victim was a special-needs individual who had been reported missing. After the incident, he was found wandering the neighborhood in “an obvious state of trauma.” He was treated and released from the hospital, according to CBS News.

Many on social media were rightly outraged and are demanding the horrific attack immediately be labeled a hate crime:
