Jordan Hill, 18, Tesfaye Cooper, 18, Brittany Covington, 18, and Tanishia Covington, 24, are expected to appear in a Chicago court on Friday.

In the video, the assailants can be heard making derogatory statements against white people and Donald Trump.

The suspects have also all been charged with aggravated unlawful restraint and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Supt Eddie Johnson: “What would make individuals treat somebody like that?”

“I’ve been a cop for 28 years, and I’ve seen things that you shouldn’t see in a lifetime, but it still amazes me how you still see things that you just shouldn’t.”

In the 30-minute video, the attackers can be seen cutting the victim’s clothes, dropping cigarette ash on him, pushing his head back with a foot and drawing blood by cutting off some of his hair with a knife. More Here:
