    Chicago investigators are questioning four African-Americans after a Facebook Live video shows a group of people torturing a white mentally disabled man while someone yelled “F*** Trump!” and “F*** white people!”

    Chicago police were made aware of the video Tuesday afternoon. A young African American woman streamed the video live on Facebook showing at least four people holding the young white man hostage.

    “The video is reprehensible,” said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.

    4 in custody after mentally disabled man tied up, tortured on Facebook Live
    “It’s sickening. You know it makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that,” Police Supt. Eddie Johnson added.

    Throughout the video, the victim is repeatedly kicked and hit, his scalp is cut, all while he is tied up with his mouth taped shut.

    At one point, the victim is held at knife point and told to curse President-elect Donald Trump. The group also forces the victim to drink water from a toilet.

    The suspects can be heard saying they want the video to go viral.

    Detectives think the victim, who lives in the suburbs and appeared to be in his late teens or early 20s, met some acquaintances in northwest suburban Streamwood and they drove him to Chicago in a stolen vehicle, Guglielmi said.

    The victim is then believed to have been held hostage and tortured in an apartment in the 3400 block of West Lexington on the West Side, Guglielmi said.

    KEEP DOING THIS, DEM SLAVES. PLEASE. YOU’RE ONLY HELPING US.

    You’re only PROVING US RIGHT.

    Read the whole thing. This is the modern Democrat slave.

      Allow me to put on my tinfoil hat and go conspiratin.’ This is a benefit, unintended or not, that Dems have because they hold black people back. Something like this happens, the Dems can blame this on whatever problems black people are said to suffer from: racism, bigotry, whatever. Especially because of the way the media will not report this story.

      Democrats get to ignore this as being their fault, and say that this happened because the white man wasn’t sensitive enough to the needs of an oppressed people.

      No one should leave their home unarmed. Obama has emboldened and enabled a violent savage element of society. MSM, Hollywood, politicians have nurturer the barbarism that is coming.

      National reciprocity for CC can’t come soon enough.

      Rules

      1) Never leave home unarmed.

      2) Never stop for thugs blocking your car.

      3) If you are attacked remember it is a fight for your life you will be dead or they will be dead.

      4) Most LE hands are tied until January 20th

      5) Defend yourself and your loved ones at all costs

      6) Certain people think you are expendable because of the color of your skin.

      7) Obama has made killing and torturing white people and LE vogue.

      8) BLM is a racist terrorist organization.

      9) The Police are minutes away if you are being attacked, most, the vast majority will help when they arrive, a few will be afraid to help if your assailant is black or Muslim because a society of savages, their commanders and the POTUS will attack them for helping to save your life.

        My own swing on national reciprocity is that there still is a wide gulf in what kind of training, education is required for a concealed carry permit. I have experienced the entire range,,, in PA, you paid the money and you got a permit. In SC you had to attend a class and demonstrate your skill actually with a shooting test. Both states did some kind of check on your criminal record. I understand that not everyone would be able to cover the cost of the class etc, but I thought it was a really good idea. Smart people could work out something affordable….

          Good morning Amwick πŸ™‚

          I believe in Constitutional Carry. I believe it is the law of the land (BS government aside) .

          Reciprocity comes in because as usual our law makers have spit on the Constitution. I paid about $200.00 (Class and permit, baloney skills shooting test) in WI, in IL it is about 1,400.00 and then the laws are total baloney even after you get your permit. So I don’t really care if states issue permits in a similar fashion because I believe it is wrong that they have to issue them at all, I simply think once a citizen jumps through the hoops of the corrupt nanny government at the point of the gun that the permit should be honored in all 50 states.

          Criminal checks are done before a gun is purchased. Classes are good as classes for anything that a person needs lessons about or training in are good but nothing will take the place of common sense and consistent practice with firearms.

Our instructor was an old guy missing a lot of teeth who was very funny, but I thought he did a good job putting the info out for us. I didn’t send the money in to get my permit because I found out that I was moving soon. So, I waited until I got to FL and went thru the class again. Totally different. And, we only had to shoot a gun once (and, not kill the instructor).

How ’bout them guns the ATF/DOJ blackmailed that dude to illegally convert to fully automatic and then shipped across international borders to Mexican outlaws?
        Let’s go back, to be fair, to the days of the Sandanistas when the US government was having untraceable guns manufactured (like MAC-10s) and ‘transferred’ to ‘rebels’ fighting Communists? Only to have the Communist drug runners replaced by our rebel buddies who became our new drug runners using the guns we supplied.
        Y’all might not remember but there was a company back in the 60s that sold older military guns, was based in Virginia, and it was rumored to have certain contacts (or be owned by) another Virginia-based government agency. This company was rumored to be an outlet for excess guns stockpiled by this agency, guns that were being held for distribution to rebel groups overseas. As better and newer guns were made available the stockpiles of older guns, less desirable than the newer guns the Soviets were supplying, had to be disposed of. As this was pre-68 the guns could still be sold right thru the mail and selling them gave the agency, allegedly, at least some return cash.
        It’s a family tradition.

Also, even though Trump was mentioned the Chicago police do not think it was a politically motivated crime.

    THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
    by Rudyard Kipling

    It was not part of their blood,
    It came to them very late,
    With long arrears to make good,
    When the Saxon began to hate.

    They were not easily moved,
    They were icy — willing to wait
    Till every count should be proved,
    Ere the Saxon began to hate.

    Their voices were even and low.
    Their eyes were level and straight.
    There was neither sign nor show
    When the Saxon began to hate.

    It was not preached to the crowd.
    It was not taught by the state.
    No man spoke it aloud
    When the Saxon began to hate.

    It was not suddently bred.
    It will not swiftly abate.
    Through the chilled years ahead,
    When Time shall count from the date
    That the Saxon began to hate.

      I love that poem.

      People who don’t know me or who my friends are call me a racist, and it reminds me of that.

      So what? If I am a racist, I didn’t make me that way.

      If I distrust certain groups of people, I didn’t make me that way.

      Certain groups of people made me distrust them.

        I especially like it when folks post cutesy pics of little kids hugging other little kids of different races with the caption, “love is natural, hatred is learned.” Yes, that’s true. But who did the teaching?

          Go back.

          Before “post”.

          In the 80’s there was no internet. We had magazines.

          Get this. No internet. Magazines. Advertisements in the magazines.

          Glossy pages, ads for whatever you might see in a Woman’s Day or Reader’s Digest or Good Housekeeping. The propaganda of the past.

          There was a Prog code even then. If you have a half-page ad for chewable vitamins, and a picture of a bunch of kids running in a playground:

          Never make the white boy be in the front. Always photograph these events with the races and genders in the proper order.

          It ain’t new.

      That poem is the perfect encapsulation of SD’s theme of Cold Anger.

    How to troll a busy grocery store.

    Get a cart. Fill it with cases of beer and bottles of liquor, and a single box of Pampersβ„’.

    When they ring you up, act like you don’t have quite enough.

    Tell them to put the Pampersβ„’ back.

    Angry faces everywhere. Success.

    I hope the servants put toilet water in Josh Earnst and all of the Obamas glasses whenever they ask for water.

    White House: Too Early to Tell if Chicago Beating was a Hate Crime

    http://ntknetwork.com/white-house-too-early-to-tell-if-chicago-beating-was-a-hate-crime/

    β€œI think it’s too early to tell. I certainly don’t want to predict where the investigation will lead,” Earnest told the reporter. β€œI wouldn’t speculate at this point to what degree federal officials would get involved for considering those kinds of crimes.”

    This could be YUUUUUGGGGGGEEEEEE! Ya’z might wanna read up on the “Holman” Rule. WaPo is gittin’ the vapors so it might be quite serious. For the good guys.

    FTA – “House Republicans this week reinstated an arcane procedural rule that enables lawmakers to reach deep into the budget and slash the pay of an individual federal worker β€” down to $1 β€” a move that threatens to upend the 130-year-old civil service.”

      $1 would still be too much pay for some of the POS supervisors I worked despite. Think what it feels like to already have an MBA and have completed the full Six Sigma only to have one’s supervisor’s supervisor, who has a BS (in all senses of the abbreviation) stand up in front of the assembled division in a meeting and tell us all she’s in an ‘abbreviated’ gummint Six Sigma course and is having a hard time because she’s ‘not good at this math stuff’. When you are a Federal high-level GS supervisor who’s having trouble with a Federal Six Sigma for Dummies short-bus program do ya thinks $1 enuff?

        We had a woman who was a high-ranking GS employee and even my boss at the time, now a DC hi-ranking GS himself, couldn’t figure or find out what her job was. She didn’t seem to have any underlings nor a slot in the org chart. She did fill out and do service to a slinky one-piece dress though, who knows. Bet a paycheck for $1 would flush out a job plan.

    Well, the same CPD sacrificial mouthpiece who earlier today said that hate crimes charges might be filed after it were determined “whether this is sincere or just stupid ranting and raving” was still sort of tap dancing even after charges were announced and the CPD superintendent said that there was ‘never a question’ about authorities investigating whether the police would investigate if this were a hate crime.
    Do these people have no shame? Oh, forgot for a second, they’re Chicago employees. Never mind.

      Even after Chicago files hate crime charges the WH is Earnestly saying it’s too early to tell ifvthis is a hate crime. Geez, think they learned some lessons from Ferguson and Trayvon? Nahhhhhh…..

    Czar!!! Hey was channel surfing, ended up on the History channel, watching the “Selection”. You have got to be pulling my canteen! 30 civilians going through this combo program, Seal, Ranger, training. Not the exact standards, close. All of that Wild and crazy stuff using your equipment made by the lowest bidder on the DOD contract. Hell Yeah, if I was 20 years younger!!!!!! Maybe!!!!!

      This is reality crap designed for padded urbanite consumption. Yeah, they go thru some stuff but I have no doubt it’s heavily sanitized to prevent injuries and assaults by airmobile tort lawyers. About the time I see the players crawling through a long ditch of aged blood and offal I’ll start to think different.
