4 supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement have been arrested in connection with the kidnapping and facebook streaming of the torture of a young disabled white man.
From CBS Chicago:
Four people are in custody after a live-streamed video of a duct-taped man appearing to be tortured.
Police say the man victimized in the broadcast is a special-needs person who had been reported missing from a suburb.
In the video, believed to be from Tuesday, the victim’s clothes were cut, he was peppered with cigarette ashes, and then his hair cut with a knife until his scalp bled. Several people can be seen laughing and eating during the attack, in addition to making disparaging remarks about President-elect Donald Trump.
As of 6 pm Pacific Time Wednesday, #BLMKidnapping was the #2 trending topic on Twitter, but that will likely change when they scrub it from their system.
If this was a group of white people who kidnapped and tortured a young disabled black man, Black Lives Matter would be burning down a city over it. It would also be national news.
Here is a link to the video of the attack. It contains graphic content and viewer discretion is advised.
