Tanishia Covington, 24, Brittany Covington, 18, Jordan Hill, 18, and Tesfaye Cooper, 18, are accused of holding a schizophrenic white man captive in a West Side apartment last month, forcing him to drink toilet water and cutting his scalp with a knife while making him proclaim, “I love black people.”
Generally when criminals want to get away with a crime, they do everything to hide the evidence. In this case, these 4 brilliant thugs not only video taped their crimes, they live streamed it on Facebook. Of course they plead not guilty. After 8 years of Obama fomenting hatred and division among races, these black thugs think that torturing a white man is acceptable.
