They say the four black suspects face hate crime charges because they were shouting racial slurs at the victim and because they referred to his mental capacity.
At a news conference on Thursday afternoon, police also said the victim had been friends with one of the suspects, 18-year-old Jordan Hill of suburban Chicago. They say on New Year's Eve, Hill and the victim met up at a suburban McDonald's to begin what both the victim and his parents believed was going to be a sleepover.
Police say Hill drove the victim around in a stolen van for a couple days. They ended up at a home in Chicago, where police say Hill and the three other suspects taunted the victim and beat him.

I'm defending BLM, not this other thing you're thinking is BLM. You don't know what BLM actually is, clearly.

What in the hell are you talking about? I haven't condoned one thing that these people did to that man so stop acting like I have.
I'll say again, these people should be prosecuted to the FULL extent of the law for everything they did here, no need to blow it out of proportion though. As soon as the national media starts talking about something the sheep follow. People say they don't trust the media yet follow them wherever they lead.
All I read was that they slapped him, cut his hair and clothes and threw ashes in his face, unless I'm missing something (which I may be) them it sounds like nothing was done to him that was life threatening.
What would you suggest happen to the people? Death penalty? Ridiculous (unless I'm missing something).

I still say there is more to this story. Something doesnt smell right.
Why would the parents of a kid who is supposedly retarded or slow, drop their son off at a McDonalds to go spend the night with some random ghetto rat like the suspect? How does the victim even know the suspect?
No suburban parent white or black is going to allow thier kid to go to a sleep over in west side of chicago.
Something is not adding up with this story.
The victim, who is from northwest suburban Crystal Lake, was reported missing from nearby Streamwood by his parents on Monday. Police said they had not heard from him since Sunday, when they dropped him off at the McDonald's near Schaumburg and Barrington roads.
A manager told ABC7 Eyewitness News off-camera the young man often came to the restaurant to eat and would hang out until it was time for closing.
