Following the disgusting images broadcast live on Facebook of a teen white male being kidnapped, cut, and abused by several African-American youths yelling “F*** Donald Trump,” Chicago Police confirm the four people, who are all 18, were taken into custody but have not been formally charged.
As Reuters reports, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson told reporters the video that surfaced on Tuesday showing the attack was “sickening.”
“It makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that,” Johnson said.
Police said the young man was tied, gagged and beaten.
The superintendent added that the victim has “mental health challenges.”
While police officials did not confirm the races of the suspects or victim, video from Chicago media outlets appeared to show someone off-camera using profanities about “white people” and President-elect Donald Trump.
