The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) is looking for at least two young men who slapped and taunted an elderly man for fun on the blue line this week. The video below is incredibly depressing to watch the sadistic fun of the young men. The person taking the video was identified when he captured his own image in the video. He later told the media that “I don’t know why they did what they did. I just recorded it because it was funny.” You can watch it and determine for yourself how funny it is. If your reaction is like mine, you will be left with a chilling notion of kids who seem to lack any sense of humanity.
The videographer who calls himself A-T-L did not see anything wrong with enjoying the misery of an old man or two thugs abusing an old man. He even suggested that he had it coming to him: “We didn’t do nothing. We got on the train and he was saying some racial slurs. I don’t know why they did what they did. I just recorded it because it was funny.”
The CTA is asking passengers to help identify the men in the video.
