Remember these cretins?

How the hell he only got 8 years is amazing. The other plead to much lesser sentences.

I predict they will all be involved in other crimes before they end up spending their life in jail, or are killed in the act of one of their crimes.


CHICAGO -- A Chicago-area man who was the alleged ringleader in the beating of a mentally disabled teenager that was livestreamed on Facebook has pleaded guilty to a hate crime and sentenced to eight years in prison. The Chicago Tribune reports 20-year-old Jordan Hill of Carpentersville became the third of the four defendants to admit taking part in the attack; he entered the plea in a Cook County courtroom Thursday. He also pleaded guilty to aggravated kidnapping.

The January 2017 incident received national attention because it involved a white victim and four African-Americans who taunted the bound-and-gagged teen with profanities against white people. The video drew widespread condemnation, including from then-President Barack Obama, who called the crime "despicable."

After announcing the sentence Thursday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, Judge William Hooks Hooks directed Hill, 20, to look at paintings and photographs of civil rights leaders hanging on the walls of his courtroom. Hooks reportedly shook his head when Hill was unable to identify Thurgood Marshall, Frederick Douglass and Ida B. Wells.

"A lot of things you think you know, you don't know," Hooks reportedly told Hill. "Every time you take an act like this ... terrible act on this young man who could not defend himself, you spit on the graves of all of the people on these walls."

Funny how you never mentioned the victim was also disable.

Is it that you have so much more concern about the 'white' aspect...that you totally looked past the person?

There are a lot of monsters out there.

He should have gotten more time.
I think he should have gotten more time too ....

Considering all the crimes that were committed in this case.

Hill was driving a stolen van.

The teens also robbed the woman who threatened to call the police on them at the apartment.

This was a crime spree.
