Can't Wait to Hear This One

  • The four people charged in the Facebook Live attack that drew outrage across the city and country pleaded not guilty at their arraignment Friday before Cook County Judge William Hooks.

    All the defendants’ assistant public defenders entered the pleas on behalf of their clients. Their next court date will be March 1.

    Tanishia Covington, 24, Brittany Covington, 18, Jordan Hill, 18, and Tesfaye Cooper, 18, are accused of holding a schizophrenic white man captive in a West Side apartment last month, forcing him to drink toilet water and cutting his scalp with a knife while making him proclaim, “I love black people.”

    While the man was being tortured during the several-hour ordeal, one of his tormentors allegedly said on video: “I don’t give a f— if he is schizophrenic.”

    Someone in the apartment also said, “F— Trump” and “F— white people” and Hill, a classmate of the victim, called up the man’s mother and asked for $300 ransom for his safe return, prosecutors said.
Seems pretty open/shut, right Judge Hooks?

Think about it hooks is in hot water. The police don't like him. He gave that dude from park ridge who killed the bicyclest on north ave 10 days in county. In that he has the MADD and anti dunk driving people against him. As well as the ever growing bike crowd against him. It's almost like someone is giving books enough rope to bang himself with by 'randomly' assigning him this case.

They are Justified in what they did to the White Kid! Yep, the Intimidation, Oppression and Racism that is the way we live in America, drove these Black Youths to do what they did to this young White Devil! I guarantee the Defense will in some facet or form be that this is the result of Post Traumatic Stress from living under the Yoke of Chronic American Racism! Maybe Obama can defend them, after all he is an attorney and Community Activist. Or maybe Eric Holder, who calls White People Cowards and Racists may want to litigate on behalf of these Oppressed Black Youths. If these reprehensible animals are prosecuted in the Cook County Court System, they will be fortunate beyond their comprehension. Could you imagine what would happen if they were prosecuted Federally, with Sessions as Attorney General? Baby"G"

Everyone with an ounce of firing neurons realizes they're guilty. But the PD's have to put on a "zealous defense" lest these pieces of shit get off for "ineffective counsel", hence the "Not Guilty" pleas...

*sigh* total waste of time and money. Fortunately, not a single person regardless of race that I've talked with, seen on video, or read comments from in print has supported these morons. And THAT'S the jury pool - so they're fucked. They're gonna lock up for a while, we just have to go through the motions until they do.

Then, given the level of disgust at what they did - they'll be lucky to make it past the first day or two in prison... And GOOD RIDDANCE to them too.

Can't wait to see the sentencing for losers like this. Jail would be a vacation for them.

Bring back the chain gangs. This crime deserves that type of punishment. Have them clean up the streets.

Learn some decency and be a "shining everyday example" to those who have no respect for defenseless people. I would sentence them to 10 years on a chain gang with NO early out. A FULL TEN.

They are going to go with the defense of insanity.

they have 6th grade education levels, so you can't convict them for hate crime against his mental status.

Being a male white in the USA does not count for being a victim of hate crime, just ask CNN.

Jeff Sessions should take this case over. I think that would stop the shit show during this trial. Fardon should be out in the next week or so. I hope Session's new appointee will look at this one.

To the spineless media, here is a truth you should be printing. The reason why violent crime is out of control is because these four savages are the norm in the south and west sides, not the exception. All the government programs in the world won't help because they don't want to change and they certainly don't want to work. Can you imagine one of these animals in the work place. Would you feel safe? There is no incentive for them to be productive members of society, they don't work, they have every aspect of their lives subsidized by the government. They spend their days doing what they want and when they want it. They have clueless Democrats who treat them like victims, when actually they see you as stupid pawns who they pay to vote for them. This cycle will never end because the black population doesn't want it to.

Possible Defense arguments for the Four 'Honor Students': .....
--- The White Kid 'axed' them to do it.
--- They dinnit knowz he had a mental illness and *was just goofin' around*.
--- They all regularly ate Lead Paint when infants and as such have mental deficiencies and low IQs.
-->> The following comes closest to the actual reason, though not an actual defense, but would never be uttered by a living soul in court anyway: ......
--- Liberal Democrats, from Obama to Eric Holder and even Hillary Clinton, including every 'Black Leader' walking the planet, has made it crystal clear that's it's okay today for Blacks to beat and even torture White People due to the injustices of Slavery, (deep breath) and which has been pounded into these 'kids' heads' for the past eight years by the News Media and at home, so they 'naturally' acted accordingly when the situation arose.

Listening to news radio (780) on Friday afternoon. One of their representatives made a comment saying "It wasn't their fault. Just the way they were raised."
Missed who made the statement and did not hear it repeated, again.

Why can't we just make this go federal where these pos thugs would get real jail time,separate them all over the country to teach them this will not be tolerated anymore. With AG Jeff Sessions in expect heavy federal enforcement which is needed desperately especially in this out of control city the carnage is everywhere!

This case was another slap in the face to honest law abiding citizens, no bullshit judge but then again your put in that job by the elected masters who basically own you and tell you what your going to do and that is a scary thought!

Hooks hates the police and literally does not believe anything they testify to. He is one of the worst judges on the bench. Hopefully he was given this slam dunk so he can put one in the guilty column to show that he actually finds someone guilty every once and awhile.

Hooks is a hater and a joke, hates police, hope the ASA puts on an aggressive case,

Funny, the Public Defender said " It's sad and unfortunate that many have commented on these young men and women without knowing all the facts" Sensationalized , pervasive media coverage threatens to poison the jury pool for my clients. They're already been denounced in the media before anything has been proven, and now additional attention is being given , trying them in public before they have their day in court.

Hey ms public defender I have 3 words for you- Jason Van Dyke- How in the fuck do you think he feels, sensationalized, pervasive media coverage? Give me a fucking break, no case in chicago history is more scrutinized, sensationalized , pervasive, talked about, played and already tried in the court of public opinion or the media than JVD case. He will not get a fair trial, everyone with sense and that is not part of BLM know that, so fuck you and your 4 ghetto guilty Facebook assholes, if the system works the ghetto 4 should get 10-20, but this is crook county, and with hooks, prolly probation.

There will never be chain gangs in Illinois.

No death penalty in Illinois.

The case has put Chicago in another spotlight, I expect this will be hushed up with hopes to go away with little penalty and silently.
But we're these savages sent out with ankle bracelets because time served would be egregiously excessive?
This case has too much bad publicity and wreaks of forthcoming liberal judicial compassion. With a comment like 'kids just clowning'...
Dindu Nuffin-Duffin will be first to be called to the stand. Then comes the empty household, under privileges and the government failure.

The First Municipal District, Circuit Court of Cook County is were borderline attorney clowns go to be so-called judges.
If Ringling Bros wants to reboot their operation, they can start there.

Yeah, the "defense being presented" -- absent from the Sun-Times link shown here -- is, roughly, "They is victims too. Soxiety committed all sorts of crimes and deprecations against them and it messed with their heads."

Surprised they haven't blamed it on "Trump!" yet.

Any day now...

Isn't it hilarious watching the fully indoctrinated "lawyers" go through the same boilerplate steps one by one as if they are still back in the days prior to ummmm VIDEO OF THE WHOLE DANG THING was produced by the people guilty of the crimes that are so SELF EVIDENT that a ten year old could establish guilt, motive and intent by pointing at the video and asking who CAN'T see all three right here in color flicker show?!?!?!?!?

I must say, this is the first time I heard about the 300 bucks demand.

Question - is Chicago going to burn WHEN these racist pukes are slapped on the wrist and sent home on some probation? I mean really, what are they going to do, give them more jail time than those caught with stolen firearms? Hmmmm?

Chicago is in the biggest pickle ever with this one.

Short answer: they didn't cross state lines.

Long answer: the Lindbergh Act of 1932
(18 USC 1201), also known as the "Little Lindbergh Law." Link is here:
