So many Americans were sweating it when they heard that no statement would be released until they found out if it was actually a hate crime. 4 thugs kidnap, torture, and humiliate a special needs boy for 24 hours, making hims say “F***k White People, F***k Donald Trump” and they didn’t know it was a hate crime?
It was all caught on video…the hate crime is in the footage!
Well…at least , the wait is over.
This is what we know.
Fox News tweeted: “Breaking: 4 African-American teens who tortured & yelled “”F— white people!” at a mentally disabled man have been charged w/ a hate crime.”

he Chicago Sun Times reported:
The Cook County State’s Attorney on Thursday filed hate-crime charges against the four for the beating of the 18-year-old.
They also face charges of aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to the state’s attorney’s office.
As Twitchy noted: “Whether they targeted the young man for his race or his disability either way via Illinois law the crimes should be seen as ‘hate crimes.”

Thank goodness they called this one right, and allowed justice to prevail. These kids will do it again…if aren’t given the opportunity to pay the consequences of their actions. Now we just need to let the legal system do its thang…and hope that justice is fully served.
