Sickening torture of white special needs victim livestreamed on Facebook
Brittany Herring streamed a video to Facebook live on Tuesday showing her and three others brutally torturing a bound and gagged special needs man.
CHICAGO — Four people are in custody for streaming a video on Facebook live that showed the gruesome torture of a white man with special needs.
CBS Chicago reports that the victim was taken hostage by four African-Americans on Tuesday, who brought him, bound and gagged, to an apartment in Chicago’s West Side.
The foursome, two men and two women, had been drinking and smoking weed, and can be heard in the video yelling “F*ck Trump, f*ck white people.” The two men used a knife to cut through their hostage’s clothes, and used the same weapon to cut his hair and scalp, causing it to bleed.
The poor man was peppered with cigarette ash and repeatedly hit, kicked, and threatened — while the entire ordeal was gleefully streamed on social media.
Cops found the traumatized man wandering the streets later that day, linked his case to a reported battery at a nearby residence, and eventually to the disturbing video.
No charges have been filed thus far, as police continue to investigate the case.
