Thursday on The Chad Hasty Show, Chad discussed this brutal story from Chicago that is being reported nationwide, about a special needs eighteen year old who was kidnapped and tortured by a group consisting of two men and two women, all eighteen years old. The group live-streamed on Facebook the thirty minute video of themselves laughing and taunting the the young man with racial remarks while beating, kicking, and cutting his scalp all while he was restrained in a corner with his mouth taped.

According to many sources, police officers found the disoriented and terrified young man wandering on Tuesday afternoon (January 03, 2017), and he was unable to even describe to officers what had happened to him until well into the night. The attackers have all been identified and arrested.

Police Commander Kevin Duffin was quoted by CNN as saying about the vicious attackers, "Although they are adults, they're 18. Kids make stupid decisions -- I shouldn't call them kids; they're legally adults, but they're young adults, and they make stupid decisions...That certainly will be part of whether or not ... we seek a hate crime, to determine whether or not this is sincere or just stupid ranting and raving."

Hasty, while talking about the raw savageness of the incident and the possibility of not charging the attackers with "hate crime", said,

If you kidnap somebody and scalp them, beat them, tie them up, I don't care what race you are, what race they are, you hate them. You're a scumbag ok? You're a savage. You don't deserve to walk the streets. You should go away for a long, long time. I don't care if you're eighteen years old, or forty years old, doesn't matter. You go away for a long time. At eighteen years old, I'd say well before eighteen years old, you know it's not right to kidnap somebody.
