Mugshots Released of FB Live Kidnapping Suspects and Charged with Hate Crimes
These four suspects were the ones that kidnapped and tortured a mentally challenged boy live on Facebook. The idiots were stupid enough to put their faces on camera, made it easy to identify and be found by the police. You can watch the video in the article here.
Tesfaye Cooper, 18
Tanishia Covington, 24
Jordan Hill, 18
Brittany Covington, 18
It didn’t take long for the police to find and arrest them. But the controversy didn’t stop there. In the video the teens said some pretty hateful stuff. They said “fuck white people” as the four black teens forced the white boy to drink toilet water. At first the police were adamant about charging them with a hate crime saying that it didn’t look racially motivated despite all the evidence, but today the police released the final list of charges.
At the press conference the police stated “Jordan Hill, 18, of Carpentersville; Tesfaye Cooper, 18, of Chicago; Brittany Covington, 18, of Chicago; and Tanishia Covington, 24, of Chicago; were each charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and residential burglary, according to the Cook County state’s attorney. Hill was also charged with robbery and possession of a stolen motor vehicle.”
It looks like they are going to have the book thrown at them.
