Grandmother of two black sisters who helped torture a white special needs teen apologizes to the victim: 'They were not raised like that'


As a grandparent myself, I believe the woman is sincere and feels terrible.
  But, that doesn't take away the horror and pain felt by the kid who was tortured, or his family.  I can't watch the video.  It's sick and makes me very angry because I have a special needs family member too, 

Daily Mail reports the grandmother of two sisters charged in the torture of a special needs teenager has apologized to the victim.
Priscilla Covington, 65, told ‘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.’

She attended court on Friday with other family members to support her granddaughters.
During the six-hour ordeal, the gang terrorized and degraded the 18-year-old, then posted a video to Facebook’s live-stream.
