Originally posted on Facebook Live by Brittany Herring it has since been deleted from her social media page but has landed two men and two women in the custody of Chicago police on Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2017. The man was kidnapped and held captive at an apartment on the 3400 block of West Lexington on Chicago’s West Side on Tuesday.

Graphic video: Chicago teens kidnap, torturing special needs man

The video is heartbreaking. The man is seen cowering in the corner with his arms tied and mouth taped shut. He’s kicked. He’s punched. His hair is cut until his scalp bled. You can hear one of the assailants yelling, “f*** Donald Trump. F*** white people.”

We’re not sure how long he was tortured by the teens, believed to all be aged 18,  but the video obtained by police was 30-minutes.

“It’s sickening,” Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said on Wednesday night during a press conference.

“It makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that. I’ve been a cop for 28 years, and I’ve seen things that you shouldn’t see in a lifetime, but it still amazes me how you still see things that you just shouldn’t.

“I’m not going to say it shocked me, but it was sickening.”

The victim was found walking distressed and disoriented on the street by police on Tuesday night.

Chicago Police Cmdr. Kevin Duffin said the victim was an acquaintance of one of the offenders and they had attended school together.

“Apparently, they met out in the suburbs. These subjects then stole a van out in the suburbs and then brought him into Chicago,” he said.

“It is quite possible it is a kidnapping. (The victim) is traumatized by the incident and it is a little tough to communicate with him.”

Police said the victim was treated and released from hospital into the care of his parents.

Formal charges are forthcoming, likely in the next 24 hours.

          You people can’t even finish a sentence without the lie of having a BBC. It’s a myth told by a bunch of unemployed, poorly educated idiots. My mom wouldn’t spit on trash like you.

          • Mike Gee

            i doubt it opie..but believe what u want, we all know the truth. Its part of the reason why you envy us to the point of hate.

          • Billy

            Nobody envies you criminals , if you ain’t talking about your dicks , committing violence and destroying nieghborhoods you’re destroying yourselves. NO ENVY ANYWHERE. You’re all a bunch of bad jokes.

  • Not about that life

    So they basically did this for social media notoriety? The example that will be made of these heartless idiots will be epic!

  • Billy

    Thats the crap these jagoff niggers pull everyday, but BLM matters, not until you can prove other people’s do. Fuckin lowlifes destroy every city they move two, then you get the rich ones who don’t even live within 500 miles of this scum speaking for them. Ever wonder why?

    • 26Sweetheart

      Hate no matter what the race is inexcusable. You hate the hate crime and make racist statements. That’s not helpful.

      • Billy

        Where did I lie? I didn’t so it isn’t racist it’s the truth, the truth hurts but you can’t turn your back to it.

        • 26Sweetheart

          There are plenty of poor white neighborhoods and they do kill each other. Crime is related to proximity. More than likely you kill those around you. Hence white people kill more white people and blacks kills more blacks. Its all proximity.

          • Billy

            You’re high.

          • Chucky Alphaman

            ur denying the truth

          • Billy

            Fuck you.

      • Sharhonda Blue Streets

        Exactly at 26Sweetheart

        • 26Sweetheart

          Some people need to be the hung no matter the race. When something as horrific as this is committed against another human being, pitty and humane treatment is no longer deserved.

      • Billy

        I don’t tolerate being spoken down too no matter what the color.

        • Mason Youngblood

          Well get on the ground and look up to while we tell you the truth.

          • Billy

            The only thing I like on the ground is your mothers knees.

        • 26Sweetheart

          You’re one insecure person to take my statement as me talking down to you. I’m stating facts lol.

          • Billy

            I wasn’t speaking about you, where’d you get I was.

      • Billy

        Bullshit, you throw a fit when you hear the word nigger but it’s ok for your black asses to call white people crackers, saltines, Casper , ghosts and whatever else you chose. Fuck you NIGGERS and your bullshit . One day your gonna push to far with your bullshit and your gonna find out how good you used to have it.

        • Sharhonda Blue Streets

          Seems like you are intentionally
          perpetuating hate and racism, while calling for justice at the same time…

          • Billy

            That’s not true, I just stated the truth, something a lot of people don’t want to hear.

          • Sharhonda Blue Streets

            My apologies.. I missed that part in your posts..

          • Billy

            You missed it cause you didn’t read it, I didn’t start the name calling I just responded to it. Big difference.

      • Sharhonda Blue Streets

        Oh wow so horrible….
        I’ve taught disabled kids of all races and regardless of race they are truely a trusting and vulnerable population. ANYONE committing a crime against them should face strict criminal punishment…
        competent adults shouldn’t go around calling each other racial slurs… Kinda defeats the purpose of arguing against racial injustice and racism.

  • Billy

    How many white neighbor hoods are on the news for this kinda shit? NONE! Fuck Al Sharpton, Fuck Jesse Jackson and fuck you niggers.

    • 26Sweetheart

      You do know white people can be niggers ? Last time I checked nigger isn’t a race or nationality.

      • Billy

        Yes I am aware of that but you still didn’t answer the question did ya ?

    • Chucky Alphaman

          • Billy

  • Billy

  • it wasnt me

    Crazy bitches!! Someone need to torture their asses.

  • Sharhonda Blue Streets

    Sorry to see so much hate in the responses….especially those making derogatory comments and referring to ppl as niggers, crackers, etc..We are all humans and there’s violent and vicious people of all races. It’s no wonder our country is facing such racial discord. I’m praying for this young man and his family. It’s going to be a difficult process for him to overcome such a traumatic event..

  • Alvin Broadway

    Wow. I will pray for each everyone who has posted. The end is near. These are the appointed times these Jesus spoke of.
