A disturbing Facebook Live video appearing to show a group of Chicago teenagers kidnapping, tying up and torturing a special-needs man continues to spark discussion.
Thursday on "Fox & Friends," host Brian Kilmeade led a panel discussing how an attack like this could happen and potential charges for the attackers.
Chicago police said they have four people in custody following the attack, which featured the teens forcing the special-needs man to repeat anti-white and anti-Donald Trump statements.
"This is definitely attributable to the celebrities, the mainstream media on the left stoking the flames from the election," said GOP strategist John Burnett.
According to attorney Elliot Felig, the teens could face a number of charges including aggravated kidnapping, which itself faces up to a 30-year prison sentence under Illinois law.
"Video is completely admissible," Felig said. "Even if you don't have the victim at trial, you could prove this case now with the video."
Chicago Police Department Cmdr. Kevin Duffin appeared to minimize the attack, saying "kids make stupid decisions."
"Any kid probably past the very young age of eight or nine years old should never be doing anything like that," said Darby Fox, a child and adolescent family therapist. "There's no excuse. It's not a child thing."
