What a shameful act of violence against a young man who didn’t even vote, just wearing a Donald Trump hat.
No excuse for violence and the attackers need to be punished. However the protests have for the most part been peaceful. Trying to stop them is not going to work. You can require protests on the weekend, permission slips, permits, but people will still want their voices heard.
Nobody should be doing this regardless of their political preference.
A march of students in Rockville, Maryland, protesting the election of Donald Trump to the presidency turned violent on Wednesday morning as a teenager wearing a Trump hat was beaten.
Students from Richard Montgomery High School were marching near the Rockville courthouse on Maryland Avenue, when a 15-year-old boy wearing one of the Trump campaign’s “Make American Great Again” hats was “beaten down, to be honest,” by two or three students, WTOP’s Nick Iannelli reports.
The student was taken away in an ambulance. Iannelli reports that he wasn’t seriously hurt. No one has been arrested yet, but three police officers are talking with witnesses.
WTOP wil have more on this developing story as it becomes available.
Let someone, anyone place hands on my child, especially for something as dumb as different political views, this is out of hand. Authorities better do something. It’s not ok to harm or put others in danger because you don’t agree with something. Just like these idiots walking in front of traffic, someone is either going to get killed in a car collision or run over. That is NOT a peaceful protest!
