Jordan Hill, 20, was sentenced Thursday to eight years imprisonment after pleading guilty to aggravated kidnapping and a hate crime — bringing more closure to a disturbing Chicago ordeal that made national headlines after it was streamed live over Facebook.
The Chicago Tribune described him as the “alleged ringleader” of a group that abducted and tortured a mentally disabled teenager in a “racially charged” crime in early January of 2017.

Hill and three other individuals were charged over the shocking video: Tesfaye Cooper (who is only indicted, not convicted of any crime) and sisters Brittany (20) and Tanishia Covington (25). Their victim is an unnamed white male with schizophrenia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder who was 18 at the time of the abduction and torture.

The video shows the purported perps making statements including “f*ck Donald Trump” and “f*ck white people” while streaming live video on Facebook. The abuse included binding, gagging, beating, and cutting their victim.

Brittany Covington was sentenced to four years of probation and banned from using social media last December. She was later taken back into custody in April after seemingly violating the conditions of her probation by accessing Facebook.

Tanishia Covington was sentenced to three years imprisonment after pleading guilty in April. She was paroled last week.

According to the Tribune, Cooper’s lawyer “indicated in court Thursday his client is considering a plea deal as well.”

Judge William Hooks offered comments on the racial dimension of the crime prior to sentencing Hill. The Tribune writes that the judge, who is black, castigated Hill for dishonoring the work of civil rights icons:

“I surmise you believe you have some pride in being an African-American, is that fair to say?” Hooks asked Hill from the bench.

“I’m proud to be black,” Hill answered quietly.

Hooks, who is African-American, then pointed out the portraits of civil rights heroes including Ida B. Wells and Frederick Douglass, displayed in his courtroom in the Leighton Criminal Court Building. Hill admitted he did not know any of their identities.

“Every time you take an act like this particular terrible act against this young man who couldn’t defend himself, you spit on the graves of all these folks that surround you in this courtroom,” the judge said.

8 years for kidnapping and torturing a disabled kid. Wow. Turn the tables and we are looking at a 20-25 year sentence. Also read the bold and underlined bullshit. The bitch spent 3 whole months in prison!!! The Fucking United States is becoming a shit hole. The sentences are no longer based on the crime, but your skin color. Smileyfud It may be time to bring back street justice!!! If you get my point!!

This is something that kills me. These kids are taught that sports stars and rappers are their heroes.
I get your point but it's a scary one.

Well something has to be done. The justice system is rigged in favor for the color of your skin and not for the crimes committed.

It's been a shit hole, and people wonder why I'm not extremely patriotic. Having some decent people in this country and some beautiful land gives me no reason to worship America. We are disgusting. An embarrassment. It's the truth. Sure there are other places that are just as bad and much worse but I don't live in those other places, I live here and I find almost everything about this country objectionable and ridiculous. Trump can't can't fix everything and he won't be in office forever. We the people can't fix it either, we are so divided, we have so many destructive idiots pushing against everything good we try to do, we're losing the battle.

In my opinion we are so far beyond fucked that there is no coming back from it. Govt is filth, 10's of millions of people are ignorant, idiotic, vile, evil, and many are filthy sexual degenerates, our constitution was shit all over long ago, there is no justice in our justice system, should I go on? This story proves how fucked in the head we are in this country.

Full Throttle
