An online crowdfunding campaign has raised well over its initial sought out goal of $10,000 for the family of the kidnapped disabled victim who was tortured on Facebook live by 4 criminals.
The disabled 18-year-old teen was tied up, beaten, and tortured over the course of several hours. He was forced to say “Fuck white people,” and, “Fuck Donald Trump.” The attackers also cut the victim several times before forcing him to drink toilet water.
The GoFundMe campaign has since went viral online with over 4700 donors contributing to the cause in the past 3 days accumulating well over $135,000. The creator of the campaign wanted to “prove that there is far more good in this world than evil.”

Jordan Hill, Tesfaye Cooper and Brittany Covington, all 18, and Tanishia Covington, 24, have been charged with battery, kidnapping and hate crimes in connection with the attack on the 18-year-old man. All 4 of them have all been denied bail.
Bartlett Jackson, GoFundMe’s regional communications manager, confirmed to the AP the account is genuine and that it is working directly with the victim’s family. If you would like to extend financial to support to the campaign donate here: GoFundMe.
