Correction: The man featured in the second video appears to be the same person filmed at a different point during the 48 hour kidnapping, not a separate individual as originally reported.
Meanwhile, an earlier look through the suspect’s Facebook feed led to another video of the same assailants abusing another Trump supporter in a similar attack. During the attack, the victim is made to kiss the floor and say "F*ck Donald Trump" at knifepoint.
Much of Chicago's population living in poverty is at risk of lead exposure
Chicago is a city with a large inventory of aging homes that still contain lead paint and pipes.
According to the map, many areas found throughout Chicago's West Side have a high risk of lead exposure. The further west you go, the higher the risk.
On November 13, 2012, the jury returned a verdict in Obrycka’s favor. It awarded her $850,000 in damages and found that a pervasive code of silence within the CPD had allowed Abbate to attack her without fear of punishment.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel was in his second year in office. In retrospect, the Obrycka verdict afforded him an opportunity to pivot away from Daley-era abuses and declare a new day for police accountability in Chicago. Instead, his administration, in an unusual move, sought to erase the precedent represented by the jury’s finding that a code of silence exists within the CPD. The city entered into an agreement with Obrycka under which it would not appeal the verdict and would pay the award and attorney’s fees immediately. Obrycka, in turn, joined the city in asking the judge to vacate the code of silence judgment.
In court filings, Zambada has already made the explosive claim that he was working as a secret informant for the DEA. In exchange for information on rival drug lords, he says, U.S. authorities offered him immunity from prosecution and turned a blind eye toward the Sinaloa cartel’s illegal activities. (Prosecutors deny these allegations.)

If you want to cry about the victim's mental disabilities, but don't want to see the almost certain mental disabilities of the perps, then YOU are just as guilty as the perps.
Someone raised these creatures. Someone allowed presumably innocent babies to devolve into the monsters that we saw on the video.
If one wan't to try to find an excuse for their behavior, look at the parents.

I want you to show me a RELIABLE link that says that the victim of these lunatics was a trump supporter, please... pretty please???
I don't believe he was!!
With you all the way except the quoted point above.
There is no excuse for what these people did. Not even a mental disability.
I made the point to a friend yesterday, that I feel like certain aspects of the media and organizations like BLM and the like,
had a serious role in this type of behavior.
These ignorant, misled, brainwashed and corrupted scumbags MOST LIKELY would not have done this, if it wasn't for the lies and cries of racism from the talking heads on TV and in BLM.
This new type of "activism" is hurting people on both sides of every coin. Race, politics, religion, ect.
We all suffer when the loudest, not the smartest voice gets heard

...your argument of mental defect also implies they should be held to a lesser standard of accountability, which I doubt you are saying. We generally as a society don't blame people with mental defects for their actions, rather we see them as worthy of treatment and management.
These ADULT perpetrators deserve all of the blame possible and everything the full force of the law has to offer them, imo.

actually, I am looking at a mental defect!!! these kids are more mentally handicapped than their victim is. and the sooner we accept this lack of empathy as a mental defect the better.
I also believe that there is a growing lack of empathy in this country that isn't confined to chicago, or the poor communities, but transcends into all groups... it should be recognized for what it is.. a mental defect...
