Two women are charged with hate crimes for stealing a MAGA hat from a terrified seven-year-old boy and throwing it over the wall outside the DNC
Two women are facing hate crime charges after confronting a seven-year-old boy and his Trump-supporting mother outside the Democratic National Convention in Delaware, and seizing a 'Make America Great Again' hat.
The pair were caught on camera on August 20 in Wilmington - a few hundred feet from where Joe Biden gave his DNC acceptance speech that night
On Tuesday a grand jury in Delaware indicted Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy, both 21, on felony charges of robbery, conspiracy and hate crimes and a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child.
Amy also was indicted on misdemeanor charges of assaulting a man who tried to retrieve the hat, attempting to assault his mother, and offensive touching of the boy.
The indictment accuses the women 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.'
Kathleen Jennings, Delaware attorney general, said that Winslow and Amy's actions were un-American.
