Chicago violence

President Barack Obama referred to a videotaped attack on a Chicago mentally disabled man as "despicable" Thursday while talking about the city's crime rate. Four teens have been charged with hate crimes in connection with the violent assault captured in a Facebook Live clip.

Pierre Stokes, 25, was charged with three felony counts of aggravated battery for a shooting on March 8.

A day after Chicago police officials released graphic video of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald being gunned down by a Chicago police officer, President Barack Obama took to Facebook express concern.

Police say the child was targeted because of his father's gang ties and a string of shootings between rival gangs. A basketball the boy often carried to and from school was found near his body.
