Chicago Four Who Tortured Man With Special Needs Charged With Hate Crimes, But Was It A Hate Crime? [Video]

The four individuals in Chicago responsible for the kidnapping and torture of a young man with special needs, that Deana wrote about here, have been charged.

Here is a rundown of who was charged with what:

Jordan Hill, 18, of Carpentersville, is charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, robbery, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and residential burglary.
Tesfaye Cooper, 18, of Chicago, is charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and residential burglary.
Brittany Covington, 18, of Chicago, is charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and residential burglary.
Tanishia Covington, 24, of Chicago, is charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restrain and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

The Chicago police went into additional detail during their press conference.

Needless to say, those four are in some serious trouble.

They seem ‘nice’ don’t they? As I noted, their sickening glee at what they were doing, and the various tortures they inflicted upon that defenseless young man are heinous, vicious…and a crime. Period. But does this rise to the definition of hate crime? According to Illinois law it does. Should they be held accountable?

Absolutely. Definitely. 100%.

However, is the discussion regarding the definition of hate crime obscuring the very real issues here? Two points of view from two very disparate people, Matt Walsh and Montel Williams, are worth taking a look at.

Montel made this statement.

Life in prison. No parole. I’m not interested in whether these kids had a tough life, whether their parents loved them enough, I don’t care.
Whether this is a hate crime is a distraction and irrelevant – THIS IS THE COLD BLOODED TORTURE OF AN INNOCENT HUMAN BEING. That’s bigger than a hate crime, it’s bigger than racism (saying F*ck white people is racist by definition), its bigger than politics.
Life in prison. No parole. If you can do this to another human being once, you can’t be trusted to not do it again.
My prayers go out to the young man in this disgusting video.

Matt Walsh believes its much worse than a hate crime.

As is often the case with atrocities committed by teenagers in the inner city, it appeared that the primary motivation was not a hatred for the victim but a total indifference to him. They were not shouting in anger. They didn’t seem to be enraged at all. They were laughing. They were amused. They were having the time of their lives.

They didn’t abduct their victim and torture him because they had something against him. They abducted and tortured him because they thought nothing of him. They found his pain and fear to be utterly hilarious. It was all just a bit of recreation. They weren’t exacting revenge on an enemy — they were toying with an insect. They were pulling the legs off a grasshopper. The grasshopper happened to be a human being, but that distinction was meaningless in their eyes. [Emphasis added]

Who is right in this instance? In my view, they both are. Forget about all those who are and will be making excuses left and right about their ‘motivations’ and how they are just ‘misunderstood good kids.’ Williams is right. If they can do this once to someone – for hours – then they sure as hell will do it again. Walsh is also correct. The conscience and moral compass of those who committed the crime is non existent and for them, hate would be a step up. 

We must never forget that those four cretins did was evil and absolutely inexcusable. Meanwhile, let us pray for the young man as he recovers, and let justice be done.

    tall tree, 4 short ropes, problem solved, at least in this instance..though we can only hope that the poor victim will be able to recover from what they put him through.

    If the roles were reversed, four idiot white teens torturing a disabled minority youth, the media screams would reach Jupiter. Yet the New York Times buries the story on page 18. Why? Because it doesn’t fit their chosen narrative that all evil and violence comes from Trump and conservatives. As a conservative I have no doubt this is a hate crime. I also believe Dylan Roof committed a heinous hate crime. If the left glosses over this story while indulging in others that have been disproven as hoaxes-like the church in Mississippi burned by a parishoner and the girl claiming an attack by “men in Trump hats” when in reality she was avoiding being accused of missing curfew-then they have shown their true colors. Add to this the disabled girls abused by Somalis in Montana and you should have every parent of a disabled child out in the street demanding change. But the media hushes it up-because it’s just a white kid tortured and kidnapped by four BLM supporters in a city with the worst murder record of any city with such strict gun laws.

      Agreed. Unfortunately, they are going to stick to their narrative no matter how much reality intrudes. And that narrative involves weaseling, waffling, and crafting brand new excuses for those four who ..by the smugness of their mug shots, have zero remorse for what they’ve done.

  • GWB says:

    I’ve long argued, “which would you rather have as a potential assailant: the guy down the street who hates all [people who are like you] and you can therefore avoid, or the unknown sociopath who might attack you just because?”

    But, the real problem with “hate crimes” is it requires discerning a motive. And that’s hard enough that in a solid, equality-under-the-law society, it’s never the element of a crime. It might be used to figure out who did it (during the investigation), and to establish mens rea during a trial (they intended to do it, because they had good reason to want to do it), but it’s never an actual element of a crime.

    Yes, the fact they committed this heinous act is more than enough to punish them severely. The fact there was a racial disparity shouldn’t even enter in (not even to sentencing). Nor should the fact this young man was slow. The mere fact they would do this to anyone should earn them the strongest penalty.

    BTW, I think that “strongest penalty” should be something like horse-whipping. Incarcerating them isn’t going to do much except remove them from polite society (and run the risk of a Cuomo or 0bama pardoning them at some later date). We have stupidly removed some very useful tools from our bag of punishments in the last 100 years, due to the squeamishness of social reformers (who did NOT achieve “progress” in my book).

    • Max Redline says:

      I’ve disagreed with “hate crime” ever since they first brought it up. I don’t care why they did it. I care that they did it.

  • Rusty Shackleford says:

    I’m hoping somebody sets up a Go Fund Me page for the poor victim of these feral beasts! I also hope DJT reaches out to him—he needs to know that most Americans are still decent and support him in his hour of need. As for the four vermin, I hope they ESAD.
