Correction: Since in the shown video, the schoolboy was not wearing MAGA hat, it would not be sufficient to cite the attack on him as politically related or hate crime as claimed by his mother.
A video released on Thursday, Dec. 12, showed a 14-year-old white child being hit repeatedly by a mob of black youths on his ride home from school on a school bus in Hamilton County.
The victim named only as Tyler was hospitalized due to his injuries from the brutal attack.
“I am sitting in the hospital with my 14-year-old kid because he was just jumped by 8 black kids on the school bus, I guess that’s what happens when a kid wears a #Trump hat to school,” the boy’s mother wrote Nov. 21 on Twitter, the day the attack occurred. She added, “earlier in the day they poured milk all over his head.”

His mother said he had been relentlessly bullied after wearing Trump’s hat to school previously.
“He was proud to wear [his Trump hat]. He wore it to school, but due to immediate bullying he put it away & didn’t wear it to school again, sadly the damage was already done & [he] was now a target,” she said.
“From that point on he was steadily getting messed with. He was getting hit, tripped, & verbally abused on the bus, but it all came to a head yesterday on his bus ride home,” she continued.
The children involved have been suspended from school, The Daily Mail reported.
On Dec 13, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office made an announcement denying the attack was politically-motivated upon its own investigation. Yet, the mother on consultation with her attorney still kept the video on her Twitter unchanged.
