Some news crew caught up with a grandmother of two of the perps in that horrendous racial, anti-Trump, torture case that happened in the Hell Hole of Chicago. She gamely tried to explain that she tried her best in raising those delinquents. See EXCLUSIVE - 'They were not raised like that': Grandmother of two black sisters who helped torture a white special needs teen apologizes to the victim as judge denies them bail, saying they're a 'danger to society'. Excerpt:
The grandmother of two sisters charged in the torture of a special needs teenager has apologized to the victim.
Priscilla Covington, 65, told DailyMail.com: ‘I am so sorry, I am so sorry. I apologize on behalf of my family to his, that’s all I can say.’
Brittany Covington, 18, and Tanishia Covington, 24, have been charged with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery and hate crime for torturing the victim along with alleged accomplices Jordan Hill, 18, and Tesfaye Cooper, 18.
The grandmother, who brought up Brittany from infancy, added: ‘My girl was not raised liked that.’ ...
Her grandmother told the AP on Friday: ‘I'm so upset, my head is about to bust open.
‘I don't know if someone influenced her. ... She had her ups and down. [She] was a good person. I'm so confused.’
Forget it, Jake. It's not even Chinatown, it's Chicago.
Doing her best wasn't good enough, but it was all she could do. And it proves a theory. Peer pressure and a violent culture can replace any moral code a parent or grand parent tries to instill in the future criminal. By the way, there's a dog that didn't bark -- absolutely no mention of the parents.
This isn't to say I'm unsympathetic to the actual victim. But the unintended recipient of the societal outrage is that poor grandma.
