The world was stunned last month when a video was posted on Facebook Live showing four black thugs torturing a white teenager in Chicago while screaming things like “f*ck Donald Trump!” and “f*ck white people!” Now, the four punks have appeared in court, and what they did there is downright disgusting.
Daily Mail reported that the four defendants each entered a not-guilty plea on Friday despite the fact that their crime was caught on video and posted online for the world to see. Tanishia Covington, 24, Brittany Covington, 18, Jordan Hill, 18, and Tesfaye Cooper, 18, have each been in custody since the beginning of January and are each facing many charges including committing a hate crime and aggravated kidnapping.
Each of the defendants was arraigned before Judge William Hook today.
During their first hearing last month, a judge denied them all bail and called them a danger to society. Afterwards, defense attorney Amy Campanelli whined about the “sensationalized, pervasive media coverage” of the case that she said tainted the jury pool.
“It is sad and unfortunate that many have commented on these young men and women without knowing all the facts,” she said last month after a hearing. “They have been denounced in the media before anything has been proven.”
It’s disturbing that these four defendants are trying to argue that they aren’t responsible for their filthy crime. SHARE this story if you think they are GUILTY!
