Four people are in custody after a “disturbing” and “brutal” video showing a man with “mental health challenges” being tied up, beaten and tortured was streamed live on Facebook “for the entire world to see,” Chicago Police say.

Police told WFLD-TV they became aware of the video Wednesday afternoon and the incident occurred Tuesday. The group appearing to hold the man hostage are black, while the victim is white, but police say they have not yet determined if the case will be investigated as a hate crime.

In the video, one of the attackers can be heard yelling, “f*c* Donald Trump n*gger, f*c* white people, boy.”

Police told WBBM-TV the victim has special needs and was a high-risk missing person from northwest suburban Crystal Lake.

The investigation is still ongoing.

You can watch the video below:

The second video, which you can watch below, shows the group taunting the victim and forcing him to drink from a toilet:



They force him to say “f*c* Donald Trump.”

The man, who is seen in the first video being kicked and punched and cut on his scalp, was hospitalized to be treated for his injuries, police said. He was recovering on Wednesday. The names of those in custody have not been released.

Police told WBBM the victim traveled to Carol Stream to meet a friend, and they ended up in a stolen car, which was driven to the West Side of Chicago, where the attack took place in a home in the 3400 block of Lexington Avenue.

The 30-minute video was originally posted on Facebook Live by Brittany Herring, but has been deleted. It has since been re-uploaded on Youtube and elsewhere.

Police said the four people in custody have not yet been formally charged. One of the suspects is the person who posted the video on Facebook.

The department issued a statement on Twitter calling the video “disturbing” and saying the suspects are being questioned:

Regarding the disturbing video that surfaced on social media of a battery: Incident is under investigation/suspects are being questioned

While on patrol Officers observed a disoriented male walking 3400 W. Lexington on January 3, 2017 who was then transported to an area hospital for treatment. At 5:26 p.m. officers then responded to a battery at a residence on the 3300 block of W. Lexington where they discovered signs of a struggle and damage to the property and (were) able to link this evidence to the disoriented male. Officers later became aware of a social media video depicting a batter of an adult male which is believed to be the same individual. At this point CPD believes the video is credible and detectives are questioning persons of interest in the case. The victim, whom CPD believes is from a neighboring suburb, was transported to an area hospital in stable condition. The investigation is ongoing.

Police held a press conference Wednesday night to address the incident. You can watch that below:

“I’ve said time and time again that if you commit an act of violence in the city of Chicago, you will feel the full weight of the Chicago Police Department,” Superintendent Eddie Johnson said at the press conference. “And tonight, four individuals have experienced the consequences of their actions.”

Captain Steven Sesso, the commanding officer of the 11th District, said “alert 11th District officers encountered” the victim and it “didn’t feel right, the situation. They saw clearly this individual was in distress, that he was in crisis. And they cared enough to do something about it.”

Commander Kevin Duffin, who leads the detectives investigating the incident, said three of the suspects are Chicago residents and the fourth is from Carpentersville, Illinois. The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office was interviewing the victim and charges were expected to be filed by Thursday.

Duffin said the victim is “an acquaintance” of one of the people in custody, and they “met in the suburbs, the subjects then stole a van out in the suburbs and drove him into Chicago.” He knew one of the subjects from high school, police said.

He said they are still talking to the victim and there is “quite a possibility it is a kidnapping.”

Duffin said the victim is “traumatized by the incident” and it is hard for detectives to communicate with him.

Police said the victim was with the group for at least 24 hours and as many as 48 hours. Duffin said it appears he was eventually just cut free and let go, which is when he was found by patrol officers.

As to whether it was a hate crime, Johnson said they are still investigating and if the facts lead them in that direction, they will file hate crime charges.

“Kids make stupid mistakes, I shouldn’t call them kids, they are legally adults, but they are young adults and the make stupid decisions,” Duffin said of the vulgar remarks about Trump and white people. “That certainly will be part of whether or not we seek a hate crime, determine whether or not this is sincere or stupid ranting and raving.”

The suspects are 18, Duffin said.

“It’s sickening,” Johnson said of the video. “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 you shouldn’t see in a lifetime, but it still amazes me how you still things you just shouldn’t. I’m not going to say it shocked me, but it was sickening.”

Johnson said the incident doesn’t appear to be politically motivated.

“I think part of it is just stupidity,” Johnson said. “People ranting about something they think might make a headline. At this point we don’t have anything concrete to point (toward a hate crime) but we’ll keep investigating and let the facts guide us on how this concludes.”

Johnson said he can’t connect what happened in the video to Trump talking and tweeting about violence in Chicago.

“If you looked at the video, it was just stupidity,” Johnson said.

The video begins with the group of apparent captors yelling at the tied up man. They cut the sleeves of his sweatshirt as one says they’re going to make him “butt ass naked.”

The woman filming the video then appears to realize she’s on Facebook Live, but continues recording as she smokes. The video also includes numerous references to drinking and getting drunk.

The group makes several references to Donald Trump at the beginning of the video, yelling his name and cursing him.

The video was quickly spread around on social media, and #BLMKidnapping was trending on Twitter by Wednesday night.

In mid-November, four people were arrested after a man was attacked and robbed in Chicago while bystanders yelled “don’t vote for Trump,” DNAInfo reported. That attack was also caught on video:

The 50-year-old victim later said he voted for Trump, but did not have a bumper stick on his car or anything else to identify him as a Trump voter, according to DNAInfo.

Johnson said he didn’t know of any other incidents involving assaults targeting Trump supporters in the city.

It is also not the first time a disturbing Facebook Live video has made the news in Chicago. In two separate occasions, men were shot while streaming live video on Facebook. One man was killed and the other was seriously wounded.

Each student has some plans for his life, maybe someone simply cannot study and practice at the same time, or just work on this, I would recommend this site to such students on which any written work is done perfectly, and most importantly that it is very high quality

I just watched this video, what are your thoughts on it?

Comment by rashid rourk on January 25, 2017 at 4:29pm

Peace @Mike K, it makes no sense and raised questions.

Comment by Mike k on January 25, 2017 at 3:51pm

@rashid rourke, yes, the ransom they demanded was $300.00 I believe, A whopping sum of $75.00 each. Does this make any sense?

Comment by rashid rourk on January 25, 2017 at 2:58pm

I watched a version of the video on another site and thought it was hazing at first, I didn't know they asked for a ransom. Is it considered a hate crime because he's a Caucasian, because Trump's name was mentioned? I'm trying not to watch it again, that's why I'm asking questions.

It is easy to be complacent when you see no hope. That's been our reality for too long. I do agree with much of what you are saying in identifying the symptoms. I remain hopeful and confident in our victory. Stay positive.

Mike k this is the problem with black people not only they are in denial they are not concern they are so used to their ways of life, they are comfortable, like i said the hood is a box much more like 4 walls of prison which is why they built the projects like they do and every time you drive by there is a robotic police precinct next to each project, until you get out you will never know whats outside those walls, its like being on the corner with saggy pants all the time with the latest kicks but do not own a suit, at a court date or a job interview we figure we go the way we normally do since thats all we see around us, but when we get there we look at other people we are the only one dress like an outcast and other people start to look at us side ways we start to realize that the world outside is different from the world we are from, now the most embarrassing moment i had as a young men since i came from a christian family, i always have to wear a suit to a funerals, weddings, and church, so as a young man i always had a suit or blazer because i was always told the suit does not make the man but the man sure have to make the suit looks good, once the suit looks good people will take me more serious and will look at me from a different aspect, one of my boy had a court date for a murder charge at the trail i was the witness so i told him i would meet him at the court house, when i got there i saw him the attorney told him there is no way he can go to trial,the way he was dressed, so i ran to conway got him a shirt, the white attorney took off his blazer and told him to wear it and that was the only way he can convince the jury with his story, so many of us accept the way of the life we know and refuse to explore the world outside those same people who are not concern will come down your throat when you talk about the situation they will call it bashing, black people love to live in denial they will not discuss the problems and if one of us do they will be mad at us like it suppose to be okay, i will always expose the problems when i see them it is the only way to try and move to a better future as long we tolerate and ignore we are sending the message to those who are responsible that it is okay, but the world is laughing at us when you and i walk to a place they look at us the same way until they indulge in conversations with us

@stroke, If there is one criticism I have of our people is that we do not participate in substantive debate/conversation. Especially when it has to do with our utmost interest and future. That's what I appreciate about you. We don't always agree and have had some heated exchange over the years but you engage. That's how we grow and learn. If this was about some celebrity or big ass woman, sex exploitation etc. we would be all over it. Its either we are afraid or in denial. No wonder we are so vulnerable to being exploited because we offer no resistance and/or demonstrate collective concern about our progressive prospects. If we don't show that we care and want to control our destiny we will always be slaves to the supremacists who have a vested interest in our self imposed ignorance and passive attitude towards our future.

Mike k lets wait and see the next 4 years in black folks

Comment by Mike k on January 8, 2017 at 12:41pm

@Stroke, This is why I gravitate towards spiritually and the universal vibes that I believe humanity connects at in spirit & truth. I don't do religion. I love & respect everyone of all ilks. I believe that our primary responsibility once you are gifted with the privilege of life is to contribute positively to the sustenance and continuity of the universe. Period.

Anything to the contrary is negative and counter to the nature of god. This, in my opinion includes religion because it is divisive by nature.

To follow your logic, what happens to the supremacists/our oppressors, are their methods, ethics & principles in line with god's ways? Why are our bad deeds the only ones punishable by god? It's totally illogical my friend.
