It looks like fellow blogger Brittius had this right in our comments: “Arrest, is one thing. Conviction, is another.
The failed judges in Chicago will knock it down to Disorderly Conduct and time served.”
What if the races were reversed?
What if four White punks had kidnapped, tortured, and planned to murder a disabled Black man?
I know I would want justice. I would want the punks to be PUNISHED, just like I do now.
A White man in Florida just got a 15 year prison sentence for breaking a few windows and leaving a housewarming gift of succulent bacon at a mosque.
This thugette gets probation?
These four torturing punks are sociopaths. I have no doubt they were working themselves up to murder, you can hear them discuss it. What has happened to justice in our nation?
Kate Steinle’s killer gets off, and now this:
A Chicago woman who live-streamed video of the racially charged beating of a teen with mental disabilities pleaded guilty Friday to a hate crime and was sentenced to four years of probation.
Brittany Covington, 19, has been in custody since her arrest in January.
Calling the incident “horrific,” Cook County Circuit Judge William Hooks banned Covington from social media over the four years, prohibited her from contact with two of her co-defendants and ordered her to do 200 hours of community service.
The 19-year-old also pleaded guilty to aggravated battery and intimidation charges. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dropped additional charges, including kidnapping.
The video, which sparked national outrage, focuses often on Covington’s face. She smokes what appears to be a blunt — a cigar stuffed with marijuana — while narrating some of the action.
Three others were charged in the incident: alleged ringleader Jordan Hill, 19, as well as Tesfaye Cooper, 19, and Covington’s sister, Tanishia, 25. Their cases are still pending.
The video, posted in January, shows the four — who are all African-American — cutting the 18-year-old white victim’s scalp with a knife, punching and kicking him and laughing as he was bound and gagged in an apartment on Chicago’s West Side.
Among the abuse seen on the Facebook video, prosecutors have said, is one of the women laughing as she punches the teen; a male foot on the victim’s head; the teen groaning in pain as a male pulls a cord around his neck; and the victim screaming in fear when a male approaches with a knife, saying, “Should I shank his a–?”
At one point, prosecutors said, Hill and Cooper ordered the victim into a bathroom and forced him to drink water from the toilet.
The teen was bound and gagged, a sock placed in his mouth and his lips taped shut. With the knife, Hill then cut a chunk of the victim’s hair, cutting his head, and stabbed him in the left forearm, prosecutors have said.
The victim, who prosecutors said has schizophrenia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, was able to flee the building when the four co-defendants left the apartment to confront neighbors who had complained about the noise, prosecutors have said.
He was treated at a hospital for cuts to his head, face and body as well as a stab wound to his left arm, authorities said.
