Chicago Police have detained four suspects in connection to a kidnapping and assault that was captured on a Live Facebook stream. Authorities believe the victim is a high-risk missing person with special needs from northwestern suburban Crystal Lake. CPD first learned of the video on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2016. The police believe the man in the video is the same man they found around 5:26 p.m. after responding to a Battery call. Upon arrival, Officers found a man walking around outside, disoriented. He was then transported to an area hospital.
“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,” the CPD statement said. “Officers later became aware of a social media video depicting a battery of an adult male which is believed to be the same individual.”
During the video that Brittany Herring streamed, at least two black males and a black female can be seen taunting the victim and cutting his hair and scalp. The men can also be seen slapping him as they yell, "Fuck Donald Trump, nigga, Fuck white people." Herring can be seen turning the camera back to herself as she laughs at the assault.
Comments that can be heard on the video include: "You shouldn'ta did that bro,' " When the police find it they gonna test that blood bro," "Cut this shit," "I'm finna' make yo' ass walk all the way home buck ass naked," "Bitch ass nigga," "Fuck Donald Trump nigga, Fuck white people." One black male can be heard telling the white male victim to, "Stand your bitch ass up!" as the other two laugh on camera, smoking a cigar, telling him to, "Sit yo' bitch ass down!"
Brittany Herring can be seen watching the comments on her Live feed as her little sister wrote in and said that the incident wasn't funny. The black male on scene replied with, "Tell Donald Trump that's not funny." The white male victim continues to sit in the corner with his mouth taped shut and his hands and feet bound. "This the police right here. Fuck 12." Another black female then appears in the video. The men can be heard repeatedly smacking the victim as the women laugh in the background.
The video goes on for thirty minutes and ends as Herring takes another drink of liquor. According to Chicago Police, the white male victim is recovering at a local hospital from his injuries. No charges have yet been filed.
We hope these savages are brought to justice. This anti-white, Black Lives Matter hate and violence must stop. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim.
