...Police claim that on New Year’s Eve, family members dropped off 18-year-old Austin Hillbourn at a McDonald’s in the Chicago suburbs. Hillbourn is white and has allegedly been diagnosed with schizophrenia and attention-deficit disorder. Sometime that night, 18-year-old Jordan Hill—a popular black student at Hillbourn’s high school whom relatives say Hillbourn “idolized”—picked him up in a stolen van. Over the next two nights, Hill forced Hillbourn to sleep in the van under freezing Chicago temperatures while Hill visited friends. On Tuesday the pair met up in a West Chicago apartment with 18-year-old Tesfaye Cooper (an aspiring rapper who goes by the handle “PBG HotHead”) and the Covington sisters—Brittany (18) and Tanishia (24).Read more here.
“On the video, the term ‘special needs’ isn’t mentioned once. The word ‘white’ is mentioned several times.”
Over the course of what police estimate to be five or six hours, the quartet of blacks forced an obviously terrified Hillbourn to drink water straight from a toilet, bound and gagged him, punched and kicked him, sliced off part of his scalp (and when they noticed blood, one of them joked that “he leakin’!”), put out cigarettes on his head, and repeatedly threatened to murder him—all while laughing their jolly drunken asses off.
During the half-hour or so of the torture that these four numskulls were supremely stupid enough to livestream on Facebook, they make several explicitly racial comments that point to racial hatred as a motive far more than all the recently overhyped Trayvons and Fergusons and Baltimores and Baton Rouges combined—with the stark difference being that white people aren’t rioting and burning cities, at least not yet.
According to Department of Justice statistics analyzed by Heather Mac Donald regarding the years 2012 and 2013, blacks are the attackers in 84.9% of violent crimes between blacks and whites. Given differences in population sizes, a black is 27 times more likely to violently attack a white than the inverse.
So I suspect that the very notion of “hate crimes,” especially as funneled through an egregious double standard that dictates nonwhites are incapable of even committing them, may be a very sneaky and cynical deflection from stark statistical realities about interracial violence.
