We already knew that showing support for Trump in public carries a certain risk.
Unfortunately, two teenage boys in Indiana had to learn this the hard way when two anti-Trump lunatics ALLLLLEGEDLY ran them off the road while they were bicycling.
The 18-year old and 23-year old also felt it was necessary to yell profanities and insults at the 14-year old boys. Allegedly. Reportedly.
Will Democrats denounce this atrocious behavior or will it go unnoticed?
See for yourself:
A northwestern Indiana couple allegedly used a car to force two teenage boys off a road, angered that the twin brothers were riding bicycles adorned with flags supporting President Donald Trump, before ripping one of the sibling's flag from his bike, police said Friday.
Hobart police said Snapchat videos helped officers secure charges against Kyren Gregory Perry-Jones, 23, and Cailyn Marie Smith, 18, in connection with a July 22 incident.
Police Capt. James Gonzales said the Hobart couple are accused of driving in their car, running the 14-year-old boys off of the road, and making threats toward them.
According to a probable cause affidavit, the boys told officers that a vehicle with a man driving and woman passenger followed them before the male driver pulled up nearby and asked one of the boys “if they were Trump supporters” — to which the boy replied that they were.
The driver then swerved at the boys, forcing them onto roadside grass to avoid being struck, according to the affidavit. The driver followed the boys before exiting the car and tearing off the flag from one of the brother's bikes, the affidavit states.
The driver dropped the flag, which was affixed to the bike with fishing pole, ran back to his car and drove off, “but not before running the flag over,” it states.
Both Perry-Jones and Smith have been charged with two felony counts of intimidation and criminal recklessnes. They were also charged with one count each of theft and criminal mischief, both of which are misdemeanors.
Smith was in custody but Perry-Jones remained at large Friday evening, police said. Online court records do not list attorneys who could speak on behalf of either of them.
The Washington Examiner had this to add to the story:
“Y'all better get home,” the male driver can be heard saying.
“Y'all scared, just like your president,” the female passenger can be heard saying, along with, “America is not great.”
At one point, the driver told the boys that if they called 911, he would tell police the boys called him a racial slur, according to the Northwest Indiana Times.
The attack is indicative of a larger trend of attacks against Trump supporters. Since 2015, at least 300 instances of violence against Trump supporters have been documented.
