CPD: Attack on mentally disabled man posted on social media

CPD: Attack on mentally disabled man posted on social media | SocialMediaFB | Scoop.it

Chicago Police detectives are questioning four African-Americans suspected of torturing a white mentally disabled man and recording the attack, while someone yelled “F— Trump!” and “F— white people!”

Police officials did not specify which formal charges they were seeking, though they did not rule out classifying the attack as a hate crime.

The case’s executive officer, Steven Sesso of the Harrison District, said officers on patrol Tuesday near Homan and Lexington encountered the man.

“They saw clearly that this individual was in distress and he was in crisis. And they cared enough to do something about it.”

The victim is believed to have been held hostage and tortured in an apartment in the 3400 block of West Lexington on the West Side, Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

One reason officers initially stopped to talk to the man was that he was wearing shorts despite the day’s frigid temperature, Guglielmi said.

Several videos of the incident were posted on Facebook. In one of them, on a woman’s Facebook page, a man threatens the victim with a knife. Someone tells the victim, “kiss the floor, b—-!” and “nobody can help you anymore.” At one point, someone tells the man, “say ‘I love black people.’ ”

About 5:30 p.m., officers were called to a battery in progress about half a block away from where the victim was picked up. At the battery scene, “they discovered signs of a struggle and damage to property and were able to link this evidence to the disoriented male,” according to a statement from police.

After being made aware of the video, police felt certain the disoriented man and the battery were connected.

The victim, a resident of northwest suburban Crystal Lake, knew one of the people arrested in connection with his attack from school, according to Area North Detectives Commander Kevin Duffin.

From Streamwood — where the man was reported to local police as missing — the four took a stolen vehicle to the West Side, officials said.

He was with the four for about 24 hours until, police believe, they decided to release him.

Vietnamese students win $80,000 sponsorship from Facebook

Vietnamese students win $80,000 sponsorship from Facebook | SocialMediaFB | Scoop.it

Four Vietnamese university students will receive US$80,000 from Facebook to perfect their product designed to write status updates automatically on the social networking site, after winning big in a national technology contest.

The group of students, majoring in information technology at the University of Science under the Vietnam National University-Ho Chi Minh City, is eligible for the sponsorship thanks to their outstanding performance at the 2016 Facebook Vietnam Hackathon, which was held on July 30 and 31 at RMIT University Vietnam.

The four winning students include Nguyen Le Bao, La Ngoc Thuy An, Nguyen Phuc Hau, and Huynh Van Tuan.

This was the first time that Facebook had organized the competition in the Southeast Asian country, which attracted over 1,000 applicants, of whom 110 from 29 teams advanced to the final round.

Finalists were required to work nonstop in 24 hours to finish and present their products, which had to meet all criteria in terms of creativity, positive social impacts, user-friendly interfaces, and technical complexity.

According to An, the only girl in the team who was in charge of coming up with concepts and presenting their products, many of their good ideas were denied as they had already been realized by Facebook developers.

“Their knowledge is far beyond ours,” An said, adding that the group members finally thought of their award-winning idea, the ‘automatic status.’

Facebook video could be coming to a television near you

Facebook video could be coming to a television near you | SocialMediaFB | Scoop.it

Your aimless channel surfing could lead you right to Facebook video.

Facebook is working on an app for television set-top boxes like Apple TV, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.

Facebook, which has 1.79 billion monthly active users, declined to comment on the timing of the app or where else it might be available.

The app could bring Facebook video right into living rooms. It's another way the social network is pushing video these days. Since the company introduced live video streaming in April 2016, it's been testing the placement of ads in videos. It's even been testing a feature similar to Snapchat Stories where users can share videos and photos for 24 hours before those items disappear....

Kidnap & Torture Captured on Facebook Live, Suspects Busted (VIDEO)

Kidnap & Torture Captured on Facebook Live, Suspects Busted (VIDEO) | SocialMediaFB | Scoop.it

Four sick bastards got busted in Chicago for allegedly tying up and torturing a white guy ... and they broadcast the whole crime on Facebook Live.

The suspects are all black and shouted "F*** Donald Trump" and "F*** white people" repeatedly during a 30 minute video that showed them harassing and tormenting the victim ... even cutting his scalp, leaving him bleeding at one point.

The victim is an 18-year-old from a Chicago suburb. Police say he is mentally challenged, and had been reported missing. He was found disoriented Tuesday, and cops later connected him to the disturbing social media clip ... which led them to the suspects.
