    Chicago: 4 in custody after mentally disabled man tied up, tortured on Facebook Live

    Here is the article: 4 in custody after mentally disabled man tied up, tortured on Facebook Live
    Matthew 5
    16 Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

    Matthew 7
    12 However you want people to treat you, so treat them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

    1 Corinthians 13
    1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

    1 Peter 3
    15 Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.

    I honestly do not know where to begin. What interests me most is the motive, the article states that the people responsible want the video to go viral. Who do they represent? Exactly who is the audience they are targeting? And what is the message? This could be easily identified as homegrown terrorism appealing to others in order to recruit more to a cause. Perhaps the four should be treated as terrorist during the investigation and interrogations?

    God bless,
    William

      This was more than disturbing, and it appears to be a hate crime. However, I will wait until more official information has been released and will continue to pray for the victim in the meantime. At least no one died, but what a sad state of affairs this entire thing appears to be :(

          Authorities in Chicago charged four people with hate crimes Thursday following the emergence of a disturbing video them shouting obscenities about the president-elect and white people while appearing to abuse a man authorities say has mental health issues.

            This is very disturbing to see a story like this on the news to say the very least. This is awful that people would go out of their way to preform such an action for the sole purpose of trying to be viral. They sound in the news report that they targeted this person for being white and the reason why they did was based in political beliefs. This can be shown in the article where it describes the perpetrators taking their anger out on the victim because Donald Trump is elected. More than likely there is a follow up to this article explaining the story more detailed and even more why these suspects did this to the victim.

              Hi Derf, I agree that this story was extremely disturbing, but I also believe that everything about it is also extremely sad, including the fate of the four young adults who perpetrated this horrible crime (whose lives, unless they become Christians while they are in jail, will undoubtedly amount to far less than nothing).

              As far as follow-up articles are concerned, forget it, this kind of hate crime story doesn't fit the mainstream media's agenda (in fact, it speaks out against it).

              Yours in Christ,
              David
