The Chicago woman, a 19 year old who live streamed on Facebook the kidnapping and horrendous torture of a mentally challenged (he had the mind of a 4 year old) Trump supporter was sentenced to just 200 hours of community service, whatever that means in Chicago, plus 4 years of probation. Brittany Herring Covington basically dodged the bullet, as she was accused of aggravated battery, hate crime and aggravated kidnapping. All these counts would have landed her in prison for 33 years, but a number of charges were dropped by the DA as part of her plea agreement.
If you’re not familiar with the story, 4 black adults uploaded a video on Facebook depicting them torturing a mentally challenged white teenager, who was degraded for 2 days (basically kidnapped) as he was stabbed and beaten, gagged with a sock, while the kidnappers shouted racial slurs at him while issuing death threats. The 19 year old Brittany Covington pleaded guilty to aggravated battery, hate crime and intimidation.
However, she was only sentenced to 200 hours of community service (no jail-time) by Judge William Hooks, Cook County Circuit Judge, who happens to be a black Muslim. The other three torturers, Jordan Hill, Tanishia Covington (24 year old) and Tesfaye Cooper await trial.
Basically, Judge William Hooks let Brittany go with a slap on the wrist, telling her she could’ve landed in jail for a long time, yet:
I’m not sure if I did that you’d be coming out any better. Do not mess this up.
Compare that case to this one and you know our justice system has been infiltrated:
Michael Wolfe, a 37 year old “vandal” was sentenced to fifteen years (15 years, you got that right) for breaking into a mosque in Florida and leaving bacon at the front door. A victimless crime by any definition, which landed this guy in jail for a long period of time.
