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

Published

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.

Reflecting on the impassioned case laid out by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) over the past three days, Tomasky wondered what it would take to get through to Republicans who seem uninterested in fulfilling their constitutional duties.

An audio recording that has been reviewed by ABC News purportedly catches President Donald Trump demanding the firing of former American ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

Additionally, ABC News reports that the recording was made by Igor Fruman, the now-indicted henchman of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who captured the president's voice during a private dinner where he also met with Fruman's co-conspirator, Lev Parnas.
