Since I searched and didn't find any threads dealing with this i am posting it here.


CHICAGO – A 19-year old woman who live-streamed video of the beating of a mentally disabled teen was sentenced to four years of probation.

Brittany Covington has been in custody since her arrest last January. Her live stream video showed a mentally disabled teenager getting beaten and yelled at.

She pleaded guilty to the crime, which the judge called “horrific.”

She will also have to do 200 hours of community service.

The judge warned if she violates probation, she will face prison time.

If it had been 4 white people who kidnapped, tortured, video taped and posted their actions on youtube, every single one of those white violent thugs would have received time in prison, and I would have agreed with it.

I really don't care what race people are, when people commit this sort of "horrific" acts they deserve a long time in prison. But the liberal judge from Chicago thought that Brittany Covington should only receive 4 years probation...

Is this the type of justice that the political correct society in these days want?...

Is this the kidnap and torture crime that was anti Trump and total anti white racist with the BLM stuff?

I don't care what kind of judge this was. This sentence is disgraceful. She and all her cohorts need to go to jail for at least 10 - 15 years for a series of crimes this heinous.


Brittany Covington, 18, of Chicago, is charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and residential burglary.

The judge's reasoning:

Despite the guilty plea, Cook County Circuit Judge William Hooks released Covington without jail time. Telling Covington, “Do not mess this up,” Judge Hooks imposed 200 hours of community service and banned Covington from using social media and having contact with her co-defendants for four years.

The judge did not assign jail time because, he said, “I’m not sure if I did that you’d be coming out any better.”

Hooks insisted that his sentence would give Covington the chance to put her life on a productive path.

People get away with a lot of things and it can be said of all ethnicity. Now think about this. Is it really better for this young person, to go prison and learn how to be an adult there? Will that really help her be the person that she should be? I agree that man deserves justice. I am just trying to look at this from every angle I can think of. I really am glad, I am not the Judge, because I am not sure what the real justice would be. Maybe the victim should have say in the matter, but that may not be justice, that would seem more like revenge, which perverts justice.

And people will still wonder how he got re-elected in 2020.

Shame.

If that was your son or brother kidnapped, you would be singing a very different tune.

That very well may be. But it isn't. That allows one to have non biased perspective on the situation. Revenge only perverts Justice.

I see you’re playing devil’s advocate here, but real justice would be an eye for an eye.

You simply cannot rationalize away the consequences of this persons actions because of an ineffective prison industrial complex, which is an entirely different issue that should not and did not have any affect on this person’s decision to torture another human being for the sake of racial/political retaliation.

Get real.

Yes.

She definitely deserved prison time... Bigly.
But with the plea deal she was given, that was always going to be a 50/50 outcome.


I don’t know why prosecutors would even need to offer a plea deal to someone in such an open and shut case...
More disturbing, I don’t know why they would want to offer a plea deal.


This definitely isn’t justice.

We can always hope the other 3 are dealt with properly.

An eye for an eye? You may be right.
From your perspective the same thing should happen to perpetrator as they did to the victim. That may be Karmic Justice.

I am not trying to rationalize away consequences. I am simply stating that I believe prison is not the best place for the perpetrator to become a better person. I may be wrong, but a prisons success rate at rehabilitation is not very good. With that said, she very well could be a person who just can't function in a civilized society at all, and from that perspective prison may be the only option.




Get real.


Okay. People often tend to give up on people very readily when faced with dilemma. That is not always the best way.

That is the question that needs to be answered. Why would they?

I agree.

It's possible that this young lady was in the wrong place at the wrong time. She may have some redeeming qualities that the judge is taking into consideration that we're not aware of.


The teen in the upper left corner is Brittany Covington. She certainly has a more demure countenance that her co-conspirators. On the other hand, the young man in the upper right corner looks like someone who should be summarily executed on general principle.

I absolutely understand where you are coming from in your posts above...

I actually have some pretty radical beliefs about the justice system, and subsequently the prison system...
There are not many crimes I believe deserve a prison sentence...
& even then I go on a case by case basis, believing fully in leniency even in some homicide cases...
Idealistically, prison is ideal for criminals and gradual rehabilitation...
But the reality is that it not only puts people in severe danger, but acts more like a crime school, with criminals more likely to become even more antithetical to the society they’re eventually released back into.


However, I definitely feel that this woman is irredeemable and of no use to society...
She is one of the types I have no problem leaving in a cell for life, or even with a bullet in the head.

She looks like she is very high on something, or she has been crying her eyes out. I am not sure which.

It does seem so with what she did. I am trying to find out what the plea deal was.

Yeah this topic was posted already last week, and I’ve been trying to find out what was to be gained with the plea deal myself, but it doesn’t seem to have been divulged.

At least not in any of the sources I’ve checked.

You’d expect it to be something substantial considering the very serious charges against her, which were a guaranteed conviction given the undeniable proof available.

It’s really had me baffled.

Brutal abuse and torture of the handicapped is ok in Obamaland Chicago as long as it's Black on White, can't let that white boy get away with his White Privilege.

I will speculate that it doesn't bode well for the other 3. If I am wrong, then this will prove that Chicago is really lost.
