The following is an excerpt from a story in the New York Post:
Two women have been indicted on hate crime charges after grabbing a 7-year-old boy’s “Make America Great Again” cap in front of his mother outside the Democratic National Convention in Delaware.
Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy, both 21, were indicted by a grand jury Tuesday on felony charges of robbery, conspiracy and hate crimes, as well as a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child.
Amy also was indicted on misdemeanor charges of assaulting a man who tried to recover the cap, attempting to assault the boy’s mom and offensive touching of the child.
The women are accused of committing the crimes “for the purpose of interfering with the victim’s free exercise or enjoyment of any right, privilege or immunity protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, or committed said crime because the victim had exercised or enjoyed said right or rights,” according to the indictment.
“Violence in any form is unacceptable, but harming another person – let alone a child – because of the expression of their views betrays the principles on which our country was founded,” said Delaware Attorney General Kathleen Jennings, a Democrat who has joined multiple lawsuits against the Trump administration.

WOW! Thank God....that poor little boy was so upset. But, he was very brave confronting those despicable beasts. I hope they will spend some time locked up to think about their actions. Abusing children crosses the line. I wish this crap would stop. These people don't even know why they hate so much. It's unreasonable. Insane...
The punishment for hate crimes is much too lenient.
