Published

Police in Chicago have arrested four people for allegedly being involved in assault on an 18-year-old mentally disabled man and broadcasting it on Facebook Live, reports the Chicago Tribune.

The victim, who reportedly knew one of his attackers, is white and his assailants are black.

Called the attack “sickening,” Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson held a press conference Wednesday night to announce the arrest, but admitted authorities are still formulating charges against the attackers, including hate crime charges.

“It’s sickening. It makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that,” Johnson said of the video. “I’ve been a cop for 28 years and I’ve seen things that you shouldn’t see. 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.”

In the video the attackers can be seen cutting the shirt off of the gagged man, hacking off his hair with a knife, choking him and standing on his head while shouting “F*ck white people” and “F*ck Trump.”

Police began their search for the assailants after being alerted to the video that was posted on Facebook. The original video has since been removed, although it has been copied to other social media platforms.

The video can be seen below, with the warning that it is appalling and highly upsetting:

Speaking Wednesday night, MSNBC host Chris Hayes bashed the conservative network for downplaying the seriousness of coronavirus, saying that they are "a genuine public health threat."

While Trump has advisers like Dr. Anthony Fauci, he also has the unofficial advisers he sees on Fox News.

They "are coalescing around the idea the whole thing is just overblown and we need to pump everyone full of the malaria drug and get them back to work. This is what you heard if you watch trump tv just last night," Hayes said. He then played clips illustrating exactly that, with hosts ranting and raving about the virus not being as serious as the flu.

On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," fact-checker Daniel Dale dismantled President Donald Trump's claim, repeated at the day's coronavirus press conference, that a lawsuit proved a million people voted illegally in California.

"He had a voter fraud commission that was disbanded without producing any such evidence," Dale told anchor Erin Burnett. "This is complete nonsense ... the specific lie was about a California settlement with a conservative group called Judicial Watch."
