Ringleader of Chicago’s Anti-White, Post-2016 Election Torture Incident Released From Prison

Chicago thug who in 2017 tortured a disabled teen while his friend gleefully streamed it live on social media — explicitly saying it was because they hated whites and Donald Trump — was released from prison this week, having served less than seven years of his eight-year hate-crime sentence.

Jordan Hill left the custody of the Illinois Department of Corrections on Tuesday, according to records obtained by The Daily Wire. In January 2017, Hill, Tesfaye Cooper, and Brittany and Tanishia Covington kidnapped a mentally disabled 18-year-old and laughed as they tortured him, including making him drink out of a toilet.

Hill used a stolen van to kidnap the victim and held him in captivity there for three days before driving him to the Covingtons’ apartment, where they tied him up.

They beat him and cut out part of his scalp with a knife, screaming “f*** white people” and forcing their victim to say “F*** Trump” and “I love black people.” Then they demanded a ransom from their victim’s mother. On January 3, police found the victim wandering outside “bloodied” and “battered.”


Even though all four suspects had previous run-ins with the law, Cook County Circuit Judge William Hooks let the younger Covington off without any jail time, dropping charges of kidnapping in exchange for her pleading guilty to a hate crime, intimidation, and battery and accepting four years’ probation.

The elder Covington was sentenced to three years in prison. {snip}

Cooper faced more than 50 felony counts, but pleaded guilty to just two, hate crime and kidnapping, and was sentenced to seven years in prison in July 2018. He was released in November 2022.

Hill was also initially charged with more than 50 crimes and faced up to 30 years in prison, but accepted a plea deal in which he pleaded guilty to only two crimes.

At sentencing, Judge Hooks “directed Hill to look at paintings and photographs of civil rights leaders hanging on the walls of his courtrooms, and shook his head as Hill was unable to identify portraits of Thurgood Marshall, Frederick Douglass and Ida B. Wells, among others” {snip}
