After a disabled man, who supported Donald Trump, was kidnapped and tortured, and his kidnappers streamed it live on Facebook, four people have been arrested in Chicago.
In a 30 minute video (see below), the disabled man, who was held hostage between 24-48 hours, is seen bound and gagged with his mouth taped shut and placed in a corner. The four people torturing him are Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists.
The video was posted to Facebook on Tuesday by Brittany Herring.
Herring filmed the torture while her friends assaulted the man, shouting “F*ck Donald Trump, f*ck white people.”
He is then seen to be abused with multiple slaps and blows to the head as he appears to be bleeding from his head.
Chicago Police began investigating and made arrests, but claim that though Trump’s name was mentioned, they did not think it was politically motivated.

Fox 32 reports:
Chicago police told FOX 32 that four people are currently in custody.
Chicago police were made aware of this video Tuesday afternoon. A young African American woman streamed the video live on Facebook showing at least four people holding a young white man hostage.
No charges have yet been filed.
The disabled man was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries.
I can’t believe no charges have been filed. There is video evidence and a victim! They have the person who filmed it posting it to her Facebook page! How can there be no charges?
I’m thinking those charges will be shortly coming forth.
