Cook County Associate Judge, Maria Kuriakos Ciesil, has denied bond for the four suspects accused of torturing a mentally disabled man on a Facebook live broadcast.
The suspects, Brittany Covington, 18; her sister Tanisha Covington, 24; Tesfaye Cooper, 18; and Jordan Hill, 18, were asked by the judge during their hearing, “Where was your sense of decency?”
“I’m looking at each of you and wondering where was the sense of decency that each of you should have had?” said Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil. “I don’t see it,” she added.
The group was charged with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery and a hate crime.
The four black suspects tortured and beat the white male victim and forced him to drink out of a toilet. The suspects taunted him with profanities against white people and President-elect Donald Trump.
As a security precaution, a dozen extra sheriff deputies were present at the hearing.
