Matt Walsh: This was not merely a hate crime — it was much worse

Matt Walsh: This was not merely a hate crime — it was much worse – TheBlaze
"This kind of thing isn’t even unique. 
The white man kidnapped and savagely tortured by a group of racist thugs wasn’t the first to fall victim to a hate crime of this sort in Chicago recently. 
It was only a few weeks ago that a white Trump supporter was dragged from his truck by a group of black teens and ruthlessly beaten in the middle of the street while a crowd of onlookers egged them on. 
A pattern is emerging. And it’s getting worse.
Edited version from Fox32 in Chicago below. Some may consider this graphic.

The latest incident stands out because of its brazen cruelty. 
The victim — a white, mentally disabled teenager —  was bound, gagged, and brutalized, all for the amusement of his captors. 
They hurled abuse at him, screaming “f*ck white people” and “f*ck Donald Trump.” 
They forced him to drink water out of a toilet. 
They dragged him around by his neck. 
They cut off pieces of his scalp. 
And this is just what we saw in the 30 minute video, which one of the assailants broadcast live on Facebook. 
Police think the victim, who was found wandering the streets dazed and in shock on Tuesday evening, was held captive for at least 24 hours. 
One can only imagine what other indignities he suffered at the hands of these psychopaths.
A lot can and will be said about this incident (by conservatives, mainly), but I’d like to offer a couple of thoughts on the “hate crime” angle of this story. 
The Chicago police chief has already said that hate crime charges are not guaranteed..."
