"People are raising money for the Chicago man tortured in Facebook Live video"

Late last night, Chicago police detained four individuals relating to the torture of a mentally disabled man, an act of violence that was broadcast across the internet.

Today, the internet is responding with kindness.

A GoFundMe campaign started by redditor razorsheldon on the r/UpliftingNews community aims to raise $5,000 for the victim, an 18-year-old from a suburb of Chicago.

"For those of you who have seen the recent horrific [Facebook] live video of the young special needs victim tied up,"razorsheldon wrote, "your immediate reaction is complete disgust and your second reaction is to want to help this young man."

Help the community has. Six hours into the GoFundMe, over 130 people have donated nearly $2,200.

"It feels good to know there are that many people out there willing to make the effort and financial sacrifice to support this young man in his time of need," razorsheldon told the Daily DotT.

Don Lemon doesn't think this level of racist/de-humanizing torture is evil. Just badly trained young adults.

Don Lemon is an asshole.

No he is not. He is the perfect representation of his people. That is how they think. That is how they act when confronted with evidence of crime. That is what they believe.

Don Lemon and other leftist democrats in the MSM will never denounce, because they know they helped create it.

The media lied about Trayvon, they lied about Michael Brown and Ferguson -they lied lied lied and lied some more. This is the end result.

I predict the perpetrators will hardly see a severest just punishment.

Remember the Central Park jogger?

Evil would be four young white guys torturing a disabled black man while yelling Fuck Obama.

The GoFundme is over $40K now. Gofundme is a great idea. Easy, fast, voluntary charity directly to the target.
