Youtube will probably take down the above “toilet water” video soon, but it looks like people who know how to save and repost videos are bypassing youtube’s censorship. It was taken down. The above full video is functional as of 6 a.m. Central Time.

Four people are in custody for allegedly being involved in the attack of a mentally disabled man broadcast on Facebook Live that included obscenities about Donald Trump, authorities said.
The 18-year-old man was found wandering the Homan Square neighborhood in shorts late Tuesday afternoon in the 3400 block of West Lexington Street, Chicago police said.
Police believe the man, who is mentally disabled, was missing from Crystal Lake, and may have been attacked at a home about a block east from where officers found him, police said.
Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said in a news conference Wednesday evening at Chicago police headquarters that authorities were still determining what charges to bring against the four people who were arrested in the case, and that charging them with a hate crime is a possibility.
“It’s sickening. It makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that,” Johnson said of the video. “I’ve been a cop for 28 years and I’ve seen things that you shouldn’t see. It still amazes me how you still see things that you just shouldn’t.”
“I’m not going to say it shocked me but it was sickening.”

UPDATED. SFC TON FOUND THE FULL VIDEO ON YOUTUBE VIA ZEROHEDGE: REMOVED BY YOUTUBE. TAKE A LOOK AT THE VIDEO AT THE TOP OF THE POST.
The video shows a woman and other people cutting the shirt off a white man with his mouth taped shut, cutting the man’s hair off with a knife and pushing the man’s head with a foot, and while using profanity against Trump and “white people.”
The woman can be seen smoking something, while arguing with someone else on the video about who might see it.
By Wednesday evening, the original posting of the video had been taken down, but had been reposted by numerous people on YouTube, Facebook and other sites.
The man found Tuesday is believed to have disappeared from where he lives, met up with someone he considered a friend, and then got involved with a group of people who stole a van from Streamwood, Illinois, according to police.
Not long after police found the man Tuesday, officers were called to the home in the 3300 block of West Lexington about 5:25 p.m., and found signs of a struggle and property damage that they linked to the man, according to police. The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment and later released.
The officers later found out about the Facebook Live video, which shows “a battery of an adult male (who) is believed to be the same” man, and which detectives consider “credible,” according to a police release.
“After his treatment at the hospital, he was released and his parents came into (the) Area North Detective Division,” said Area North Cmdr. Kevin Duffin, in the news conference.
The victim was “traumatized” after being detained for at least 24 hours, he said.
The four people being questioned—two men and two women– have given videotaped statements, Duffin said. The Cook County state’s attorney’s office was interviewing the victim and his family and charges were expected within 24 hours.
Police will “determine whether or not this is sincere or just stupid ranting and raving” to help decide whether to pursue hate crime charges, Duffin said.
