    Teen charged in beating disabled man, broadcasting it on Facebook Live gets probation

    Teen charged in beating disabled man, broadcasting it on Facebook Live gets probation

    Four charged with hate crime in online torture video



    A Chicago woman involved in the beating of a mentally disabled man that was broadcast on Facebook Live pled guilty Friday to a hate crime and was sentenced to four years probation.

    Brittany Covington, 19, entered her plea in a case that received national attention because it involved an 18-year-old disabled white man and four blacks who taunted him with profanities against white people and President Trump. Covington narrated the video of her and three others torturing the man.


    Brittany Covington, 19, pleaded guilty to a hate crime and has been placed on probation
    for four years. (Cook County Sheriff’s Department )

    The victim disappeared in January and his family said they received text messages from him claiming he was being held hostage. Jordan Hill, one of the four friends charged, picked the victim up at a McDonald’s in Streamwood in a stolen van. Hill and the victim previously knew each other from high school, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. The two reportedly drove around for three days.

    The video captured the four suspects taunting him and cutting his clothes after a “play fight” in Covington’s sisters’ apartment. The video showed a wound on top of the victim’s head and him being pushed by one of the attackers. A neighbor threatened to call police, which resulted in the four suspects raiding her apartment and stealing her property, police said. The victim was able to escape during that time. Officers found the victim in torn clothing a block away from the apartment.

    The videos sparked outrage including condemnation from then President Barack Obama who called the acts “despicable.”
    Covington has been behind bars since January when the video, which she narrated, surfaced. Her three co-defendants remain in custody and their cases are pending.

    In exchange for pleading guilty to committing a hate crime, aggravated battery and intimidation, prosecutors dropped a kidnapping charge and others.
    The judge ordered Covington to not use social media for four years. She also must perform 200 hours of community service.

    This is outrages!

    And a white guy gets 15 years for breaking a Mosque window and leaving bacon?

    What the heck is going on with these Judges???

    Community Service? How about put her in a facility making her help disabled people.

    Okay, I hate to bring racism into this .. well, no I really don't because this was considered a hate crime. Now, let's assume it would have been four white guys on trial for kidnapping and torturing a handicapped black man ... would the results have been the same. Something to think about.

    Oh, and I'm also tired of these freaking plea deals. They had plenty of evidence for a conviction. No plea deal was necessary. Unfortunately too many of these so-called plea deals are only done to make things more convenient for the prosecuting attorney and District Attorney's Office. Such B.S.

    The reason these atrocious acts continue to happen is there are no real consequences and they know they will get away with it. There is no excuse for this animalistic behavior.
