Human history is tragically filled with stories of mass-murder and other hideous crimes. Hence the fact that crimes of this magnitude go on today is really nothing new. What is new is the willingness of the perpetrators of these crimes to attempt to achieve celebrity status by posting text, photos, and videos of their despicable acts on the internet.
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!”
This goes way beyond sick or perverted. Imagine the rage that must boil within these people that would move them to do something like this. And then to publish a video of the offense for all the world to see…
If there is any good news in this, it’s that the victim was taken to a hospital where he is being treated for his injuries.
But the wickedness of the people who can be seen torturing this man? They may be no cure.
