Brittany’s sister, Tanisha Covington, was also involved in the kidnapping.  Brittany’s 30-minute Facebook Live video shows the teens tie the mentally disabled man up and scream insults about white people and Donald Trump.  People around the nation used social media to express their anger.

Some responses to the incident don’t make sense:

The tweet below explains that there would be riots if the four teens were white.  I think black people would stand alongside whites if they decided to riot in response to the incident.  I have seen white people in Black Lives Matter riots.  The incident was horrific, making it difficult not to express anger towards the four teens.

The tweet below mentions President Barack Obama.  I would love to hear the president’s response to the incident.  There’s no doubt that the president is ashamed of the four Chicago teens.

The wrong reaction to the incident is, “Why would she live stream the video on Facebook?” The correct response to the kidnapping is, “How could the four teens be so evil?”
