Tavis Smiley: The Other Tragedy of the Chicago Torture Video

    Tavis Smiley @tavissmiley

Jan. 6, 2017

Smiley is host and managing editor of Tavis Smiley on PBS and author of 50 for Your Future: Lessons From Down the Road
 

All four suspects in the Chicago torture video now face charges of aggravated battery, hate crimes and kidnapping.

See Jordon, Tesfaye, Brittany and Tanishia. See the crime they committed. See how swift justice is dispensed when the perpetrators, rather than the victims, are black.

I’m having such a hard time trying to compartmentalize my feelings about the videotaped torture of this precious young man. Let me tell you why.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Good old Tavis Smiley, the MSM's most obnoxious sesquipedalian.

No surprises in this screed.

Posting and streaming your crive live on facebook had nothing to do with the swiftness of the arrests?

Oh, could it be any more swift than this (wholly justified) justice?
