OK. What the fucking fuck?? A clothes hanger shoved up somebody’s butt warrents no jail time for anybody? WHY did somebody put a hanger up this student’s butt? And kicking somebody is fucking ASSAULT, and even if he didn’t “aim” for the hanger when you KICK SOMEBODY WITH A HANGER IN BETWEEN HIS BUTTCHEEKS the hanger is going to go up his butt! Even the “official” reasoning doesn’t make any fucking sense!
The fact that this poor kid is mentally disabled is just the icing on the cake.
This reminds me of a nearly identical crime that happened in 2017.
Remember this? The 2017 Chicago torture incident? When 4 black defendants kidnapped and tortured a mentally handicapped white kid, on a freaking live stream, for days? Dude was partially scalped... Dude was beaten, dude was forced to drink from a toilet. One of the defendants was 18 years old at the time of the crime.
Brittany Covington plead guilty to the charges of committing a hate crime, intimidation and aggravated battery. Additional charges, such as kidnapping, were dropped as part of her plea deal. Covington was sentenced to four years of probation and 200 hours of community service. Cook County Circuit Judge William Hooks said that he could have sentenced her to prison, but did not because "I'm not sure if I did that you'd be coming out any better."
Compare to Howard, the 19 year old referenced in the OP... sentenced "to community service and probation".
Near-identical situations... Near identical outcomes.
But that doesn't matter to a racist, like the OP. A racist sees race as the answer to every question. A racist doesn't need to compare, doesn't need to understand, and doesn't need to investigate... because in the mind of a racist, the answer is always race.
I assert that the OP is a racist.
People get away without punishment for their crimes sometimes(e.g. O.J. Simpson). The majority of people are white (in the US). majority of people getting away with things are white based on statistics. Theres no evidence that it's based on color. It's a "money/who you know get out jail pass" not a "white get out of jail free card".
Not sure if it counts for anything in this case, but "accused" and "guilty" are two different things.
I'd love to believe the article, but every time I look into these types of stories I always find out it's been either exaggerated or outright fabricated. I'm afraid these days you can't really trust any single news outlet.
