Adults brutally strip and beat black girl — but Chicago police refuse to call it a hate crime

Published

on

A Chicago mother is pleading with police to investigate an attack against her lesbian daughter as a hate crime after the teen’s classmate led a group in a beating that included homophobic slurs.

Chicago’s NBC5 reported that 15-year-old Amari Graves was walking to the store earlier this week in the city’s West Side when a girl she recognized from school and a group of adults approached her, “stomped and kicked her, sprayed mace in her face and tore off some of her clothes.”

Graves told NBC5 that the group called her a “d*ke and a stud,” both slurs used against lesbians. Her mother, Catina Parks-Dorsey, told the news station that none of the group have been arrested.

“Absolutely nothing was done,” Parks-Dorsey said. “No one was taken into custody, they told me I had to swear out my own warrant to have them arrested.”

One of the adults who attacked Graves claimed the girl swung a bat at them, and the girl said the mother of one of her attackers filmed the incident.

The girl’s mother has called on Chicago police to charge the group with both a hate crime and sexual assault because they stripped her.

“(It’s) devastating to know you weren’t there to protect your child,” she said. “I want them locked up.”

Chicago police told NBC5 the department is investigating the incident and will present their findings to the state attorney general.

Even though polls continue to show that President Donald Trump is historically unpopular, Moore believes that the president's base is fired up to reelect him and will crawl over glass to vote for him again next year.

In particular, Moore was struck by the massive enthusiasm that greeted the president at his big kickoff rally in Orlando, Florida.

Hope Hicks told Congress that Trump was ‘serious’ about accepting foreign help: Jerry Nadler

Published

on

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks told Congress on Wednesday that President Donald Trump really does welcome foreign assistance to help him win elections, according to Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

In a statement released Thursday, Nadler revealed that "Ms. Hicks made clear that she understood the President to be serious when he said that he would accept foreign interference in our elections" and "she also made clear that even she knew that such foreign assistance should be rejected and reported to the FBI."

Nadler then put Hicks's testimony in the broader context of Trump telling ABC News' George Stephanopoulos last week that he would welcome the help of a foreign government who came to him and offered him dirt on a political opponent.
