President-Elect Donald Trump’s name was used in a horrific attack on a special needs man recently, but the incident didn’t follow the mainstream media narrative of an alleged explosion of racial violence against minorities across the nation following Trump’s victory.
According to Fox News, Chicago Police were tipped off Tuesday about a Facebook Live video showing four black people beating up a white special needs man while yelling expletive-laced insults about Trump and white people at him.
In the horrific video, police witnessed the victim tied up and gagged as he was kicked repeatedly and slashed with a knife. He was also told to curse Trump.
And in the video, one of the suspects can be heard saying they hope it goes viral.
Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson expressed, “It's sickening. You know it makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that."
Later that afternoon, police found the victim disoriented and wandering around in shorts despite the frigid weather. He was taken to the hospital.
Chicago Police say they don’t believe attack was truly political in nature, although community activist Andrew Holmes is calling it a hate crime.
"I think some of it is just stupidity,” Johnson explained, “people just ranting about something that they think might make a headline. I don't think that at this point we have anything concrete to really point us in that direction, but we'll keep investigating and we'll let the facts guide us on how this concludes."
In an unrelated interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday, conservative Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke says there’s been a massive effort by Democrat leaders to ignore the exploding violence in Chicago — around 4,000 murders in just eight years.
“Only in the American ghetto, Sean, could this kind of carnage go on with no sort of emergency measures put in place,” Clarke said.
“Here’s the bottom line. Here’s what’s wrong with Chicago,” Clarke explained. “It’s not the Chicago Police Department. It’s the fact that Mayor [Rahm] Emanuel has allowed Black Lives Matter and the ACLU — the American Civil Liberties Union — to run the Chicago Police Department. They are setting policy, procedure, and standard operating positions.”
