Chicago police were questioning four African-Americans Wednesday evening over a Facebook Live video that showed a mentally disabled white man being tied up and tortured while someone yelled “F— white people!” and “F— Donald Trump!”
The video was shot by a young African-American woman who posted it on her Facebook account, Fox 32 Chicago reported. Investigators said they were made aware of the footage Tuesday afternoon.

#BLMKidnapping a huge tragedy. If it were TRUMP SUPPORTERS who were the kidnappers would be 24/7 coverage, calls to change election results.

#BLMkidnapping because Twitter will try to censor this. If it doesn't fit the agenda, it's squashed. Not this year.
