Two Delaware women who stole the Make America Great Again Cap from a 7-year-old boy outside the Democratic national convention were charged Tuesday, Sept. 8, with second-degree theft and hate crime offenses, the New York Post reported.
Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy, both 21, were indicted by a grand jury on Tuesday on charges of theft, hate crimes, and conspiracy, and a misdemeanor of endangering a child’s welfare. Amy was also charged with a misdemeanor. She punched a man in the face who tried to retrieve the cap, as seen in the video used as evidence in the case.
The women are charged with 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 case summary.
“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.
Outside the DNC Convention tonight, radical leftists attacked a 7 year old boy.
Because he was simply showing his support for President @realDonaldTrump.

In the video uploaded by “Students for Trump,” one can see both women tearing up paper posters initially and then taking the cap from the boy who was with his mother, who was video recording the incident.
As one of the the women takes the cap and curses the woman and child, the mother encourages him to get his cap back.
By this time, the child is in considerable distress.
While the women take the cap and the mother and child follow them, a man tries to recover the object and gets punched.
At the end of the video, Winslow is seen trying to fight with the boy’s mother when another man stops her.
Violent and nonviolent discrimination against supporters of the slogan “Make America Great Again” is not unusual.
The most notable case was that of Nick Sandmann of Covington Catholic High School.
The reason? Perhaps it is because mainstream media has spent a great deal of time—almost four years—portraying President Trump as a “white supremacist,” “racist,” and “misogynist” among so many other insults, and thus those who sympathize with him are attributed the same characteristics.
