The victim was beaten, slashed, held at knifepoint, and a whole lot more in a Chicago apartment.
The victim was mentally ill and disabled.
NBC’s Don Lemon does not think it was evil.
The Washington Post gives the details, you decide.
The footage, which Chicago’s top police officer called “reprehensible,” quickly went viral online. In the shaky video, a terrified young man in a gray hooded sweatshirt and dark pants is seen crouching in a corner, his wrists and neck bound with orange bands, his mouth taped shut.
Police say this man — an unidentified 18-year-old from Crystal Lake, a city northwest of Chicago — spent as long as five hours physically tied up in a corner.
In video footage posted on Facebook, a young woman films as two young men slash the sleeves of his shirt with knives and take turns punching him, slapping him and stomping on his head. At one point, one man can be seen cutting the victim’s hair and scalp with a knife, and the victim is later shown bleeding from his injuries.
While the 18-year-old man can be seen cowering with his back to the wall, another voice can be heard repeatedly shouting, “F‑‑‑ Donald Trump” and “F‑‑‑ white people.” The four apparent attackers were black, while the victim appeared to be white.
Don Lemon said that the broadcasted torture of the bound and gagged victim in Chicago was not “evil,” adding that the suspects had “bad home training.”
Think about that folks! He is condoning that the Black Lives Matter crowd physically assaulting even mentally challenged disabled people. Ends justifies the means at its finest.
Donald Lemon is vIle. But really, he is being consistent. That is what proves he is wrong.
We live in the greatest nation in the world, Don Lemon. It’s too bad you live in a cry in front of your hurdles mentality. Sad.
Here is the full video. Beware…it’s bad…
