Do These 3 Trials Expose What’s Wrong With Our Justice System?

A disabled 18-year-old kidnapped, beaten, stabbed and forced to drink water from a toilet in a brutal attack that was streamed on Facebook Live.

A former police officer acquitted of murder and manslaughter after shooting and killing a drunk man on the floor, pleading for his life.

A young woman dying next to her father after a shot fired by a convicted felon, who was acquitted of murder and manslaughter.

On today’s show, Glenn was forced to question our justice system after watching these three devastating cases unfold. Where is the justice for the hate crime victim who was abused by four tormentors, for Daniel Shaver and his widow and for Kate Steinle and her family?

GLENN: He was kidnapped. He was bound with deduct taped. Gagged with an old sock. Beaten. He was stabbed. And he was forced to drink toilet water.

They gave him death threats, made racist remarks, and it was all caught on camera. Intentionally, of course.

Do you remember this attack? It happened in Chicago. Four black teens kidnapped a mentally disabled young man and then streamed it live on Facebook for the whole world to see.

One of the kidnappers, Brittany Herring Covington, she was 19, she was the person that actually recorded the torture on her phone. She's the one who is caught laughing the entire time, telling them to go further.

A Chicago judge recently let her walk away with 200 hours of community service, after she pleaded guilty to a hate crime, aggravated battery, and intimidation charges.

Well, why the leniency? Because the judge said, I think if I sent her to jail, I don't think she's going to come out any better.

Oh. Can I ask you? What -- what does -- what does the statue of Lady Justice look like? I know she's blindfolded, but I don't think that's a blindfold anymore. She's holding the scales of justice to weigh both sides. But then she's holding a sword. And that sword is for swift justice. Here the judge was thinking about the attackers' best interests.

Well, I understand we just don't want to throw people in jail. We want something to work. But we also need some punishment. Somehow or another, this just doesn't seem just.

The three other kidnappers, by the way, are still awaiting trial, and they deserve far more than community service, in my humble opinion.

I don't understand what's happening to us. Thursday, last week, former police officer was acquitted of murder or manslaughter for an on-duty shooting.

Remember, this is -- this happened the same week that a jury in San Francisco found a man innocent of murder or manslaughter after he killed a woman by shooting her on a pier. Have you seen the -- the body cam footage of the police officer that shows an intoxicated, unarmed man? His name was Daniel shaver. He's crawling towards the police crying, "Please, please, don't shoot me."

The officer shot him five times. Killed him. Maybe -- maybe this is consistent with police training. That's what his attorney successfully argued.

But if you watch that footage, I'm sorry. I can't see how that man posed a threat to the man with the AR.

This was an unnecessary death. Here's what I just want to ask: Are these three trials signs that we're way over the cliff? These three trials, kidnapping and brutalizing a handicapped person, and you get community service? Killing a woman on the pier in San Francisco. Not holding her up. Just firing a gun. I don't need murder. But manslaughter?

And the one that I really hate to judge because I'm not in their position, this police shooting a man. Now, I wasn't standing in the hallway. But what the hell has happened to our juries? What is happening to our judges? What has happened to our -- our grasp on reality? Have we all forgotten common decency and common sense?

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. And the best takeaway from her time at NBC? "Jane Fonda was an ass."

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
