The Chicago hate crime torture video wasn't listed as a hate crime at first. The Chicago police department had to do it proper protocol and investigations, and then make the statement. This is normal in most work environments. There's a work flow to follow and you do that in order to remain organized and not make statements without checking your information.
Chicago PD charged all four suspects from the Chicago hate video with hate crimes and other charges, so it's all good.
Courts will handle it from here.
At first it just seems like people are scared to call them out for being hate crime criminals with animal and savage behavior.
Chicago police initially failed to file hate crime charges against the four, with Police Department Commander Kevin Duffin going so far as to question whether the “kids had made stupid decisions,” adding that the CPD “must determine whether the racial statements were sincere or just stupid ranting and raving.”
Eventually, the Chicago police were able to determine that the kidnapping, restraint and hours of torture amounted to more than just the “stupid ranting and raving” of kids, and high-ranking officials were quick to go on the record with revisions of their initial comments.
“Let me be very clear: the actions in that video are reprehensible,” said Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson, adding that there was “never a question” that the attack was a hate crime.
The four suspects, Jordan Hill, Tesfaye Cooper, Brittany Covington and Tanishia Covington – two males and two females all old enough to marry, sign a contract, donate blood and enlist in the military, were charged on aggravated kidnapping, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon – and eventually, of committing a crime motivated by hate, as defined in Illinois state law.
What's the difference if it's ranting and raving or not? It's still being said and done. Ranting about things is what you do when you hate something or it annoys you. Therefore, they clearly hate white disabled people.
Guess they'll spend a long time in prison.
If Obama had four more kids, then would they look like this?... read more
