Cruel teenagers caught on video cackling with laughter as they slap and taunt elderly man on subway in sickening attack

  • Two men filmed by a third slapping elderly man and laughing at him
  • Slaps become so hard they are audible, man tries and fails to fight back
  • Video shared on Facebook prompted police investigation
  • One of the gang - which remains at large - told a radio station they were reacting to the white man's racial slurs  

A manhunt has been launched to find two young men who were filmed slapping and taunting an elderly man on a subway train in Chicago.

The men, both African American in their late teens or early 20s, towered over their victim as they laughed and jumped around him, hitting his head, on a CTA Blue Line train.

At one point the slaps become so hard they are audible on the clip, which was filmed by their friend and posted on Facebook.

SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO

Though the man tries to kick back and gingerly lifts an arm to swipe at them, they cackle with laughter and jump out the way. 

Police are now appealing for anyone that recognizes the men in the video to come forward.

Defending the attack, one of the group - which remains at large - called radio station WBBM to say the white victim had but touting racial slurs.

'We didn't do nothing. We got on the train and he was saying some racial slurs,' he says.

The young man calls himself 'A-T-L.' He says he didn't take part in slapping the man.

'I don't know why they did what they did,' he tells WBBM. 'I just recorded it because it was funny.'

A spokesman for the CTA said: 'Though this crime apparently was not reported, because neither CTA nor Chicago Police have a report of the incident, we are pulling additional video to share with police as part of a now-open investigation. 

'We encourage members of the public who witness a crime to report it immediately, especially if they have evidence such as a video. Incidents like this are rare on the CTA.'

If you surf through YOUTUBE you will observe many dumbs things that are done by white teens as well,  I think this says a lot about the callous attitudes and lack of respect demonstrated by many young teens today.  This is not about race, but says a lot about the lack of values in our society today; especially the lack of values of our youths who have too much idle time on their hands.  The parents as well as the larger society are to be blamed for the breakdown in values we observe today.  However, young white teens are not killed over things like this and neither should young black youths

@jamella, don't let the media control your thoughts. Mind control is how to divide and destroy a people from the INSIDE OUT. Teenagers of all colors do some horrid things. Don't use this example as reason to abandon your people.
Willie Lynch though dead for almost two centuries is alive and well in our minds. His methods for breaking down the slaves have become embedded in our conciousness and we do his bidding everytime we say and believe the things you said about us. Bless up Sister.

The black race is a cursed race.

Starting from the head of the house, trickling down to the ratched children.

No respect for self or the ancestors that paved the way for him to act like a jackass.

I was telling my husband this morning  if I had to be born again, I would come back as proud Mexican.

Mexican have come a long way and to me are very respectable hardworking family oriented people.

This is why society will continue to turn a blind eye to what's going on with the killing of the black youths.

I didn't watch the film my self, just pissed the f*** off now, I would love to meet his mother.
