Mentally disabled man kidnapping and assaulted on Facebook Live
Four people that the media is calling Anti-Trump supporters have been arrested in Chicago after they abducted a disabled man and abused him on Facebook Live.
The man who has not been identified, is seen in the video tied up, mouth taped, and cowering in a corner while several people cut his head and clothing, and yelled obscenities, racists comments and threats at him; all the while broadcasting their actions on Facebook Live. The terror in the man’s eyes is apparent as they stand over him. It all began when the man met one of the men he knew and went with him and others in a stolen car. They took him to a home where they tied him up, and taped his mouth and began torturing him for around 24-48 hours, reports Fox News.
There are many videos on YouTube showing different parts of the abuse, but they seem to go down as soon as they come up as YouTube is actively pulling the video. Andy Warski posted his own video on YouTube and explained that he found what he believed to be the full video and called it disgusting.
“They chopped off his hair and slit his scalp open and they are calling him white-boy,” said Warski.

She becomes irritated when people begin to tell her she is going to jail and they don’t approve of what the group is doing. At one point one man says to the camera, “One of y’all guys have a problem with this, we tie y’all “b**** a** up, too.”
At one point in the broadcast one of the men said, “That bull s*** is leaking.” and “Brittany” says, “Let me see,” and the broadcast shows the man with a cut on his head with his bone showing through. Fox news reports that the victim is held at knife point and told to curse President-elect Donald Trump and is forced to drink water from a toilet.
Fox news reported that “the four African-American teens who tortured and yelled ‘f— white people!’ and ‘f— Donald Trump!’ at a mentally disabled white man have been charged with a hate crime.”
