Torture Suspects In Chicago Are Looking At Decades Behind Bars
A Facebook Live video showing a mentally disabled man being tortured shocked America due to the pure, unadulterated racism and evil.
The victim was kidnapped and held captive for hours. During the roughly 30-minute video, he was beaten and endured racial epithets. One attacker sliced the victim’s scalp with a knife. He was also repeatedly kicked and punched and his screams were ignored.

Another attacker yelled “F*ck Donald Trump!” and “F*ck white people!”
The Chicago Police Department eventually arrested and charged four suspects in the heinous crime and have classified it as a hate crime.
The Independent Journal Review reports that all four suspects have been charged with a hate crime, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated unlawful restraint, and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
- In Illinois, a hate crime is punishable by three years in prison.
- The aggravated kidnapping charge carries a punishment of 30 years in prison.
- The aggravated unlawful restraint charge is a Class 3 Felony, which carries a punishment of five to ten years in prison if the court finds “aggravating factors.”
- The aggravated battery with a deadly weapon charge is also a Class 3 Felony, which carries a punishment of five to ten years in prison.
- If the court finds the suspects guilty of each charge, they could face a maximum of 53 years in prison if the sentences are served consecutively.
- If the charges are served concurrently, the suspects would serve a maximum of 33 years in prison.
