Yesterday, we reported on the horrific kidnapping and torture committed by a group of four young black adults against a mentally disabled white man in Chicago. At the time, based on police statements, it seemed as if this obvious hate crime would not be charged as such, but now the thugs have been rightly charged with hate crimes.
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.”

The 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 God decency and common sense prevailed. If this country is ever going to get to a place of true equality and heal the divisiveness that the left is hell-bent on fomenting, then God, common sense, and decency are certainly going to be needed in abundance.
Now we’ll need to let the legal system do its job and pray that justice be done in order to make a clear statement to society that this kind of shocking hatred has no place and that we will not tolerate it.
The liberal mainstream media, too busy with hate crime hoaxes perpetrated to smear Trump and his supporters, should be all over this case if they truly cared about healing divisiveness in this country and fostering real equality.
That’s the thing — the left has fomented the division in this country in order to keep us apart, break us down, and rebuild this country with their radical agenda.
This case is truly a hate crime and the left’s reaction to it thus far is a prime example of their racism. If any good is to come from this horrific crime, it is that hopefully people will wake up to the hate spewed by the left, realize that it is their ideology of divisiveness that has torn our country apart, and turn away from the liberal mainstream media and leftists that do nothing but create a climate of hate.
Oh, and where is Obama? According to White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on Thursday, the “disturbing” images “do demonstrate a level of depravity that is an outrage to a lot of Americans. I haven’t spoken to the president about it, but I am confident he would be angered by the images on the video.”
According to the Chicago Sun Times: “Earnest said it was ‘too early to tell’ if the Justice Department would be involved.”
Didn’t talk to him about this horrific crime and it’s “too early to tell” if the Obama Justice Department will be involved. I guess urgency is only reserved for victims who look like Obama’s children or hypothetical children …
