As we reported Friday, two young women supporting Joe Biden and Kamala Harris stole a 7-year-old boy’s MAGA hat and tore up his Trump-supporting signs outside the DNC Thursday. Riley, the 7-year-old boy, was there with his mother and a group of grassroots supporters with Students for Trump, and was clearly distraught during the videotaped incident.
Moments ago outside of the DNC convention, Joe Biden supporters attacked a 7 year-old boy.
He was attacked simply because he wore a @realDonaldTrump hat.
His name is Riley.
Watch it happen.
Listen to him cry.
Will Joe condemn this violence against Children?

Friday morning, President Trump called Riley and told him that a replacement hat – with the presidential autograph – would be on its way to him soon.
That’s a great replacement hat, but what kids like Riley really need to see are adults facing consequences for their bad behavior, to see the law applied equally regardless of politics. Thankfully, both women have been arrested and charged with multiple crimes.

According to WDEL:
Police arrested Camryn Amy on August 22, 2020, a day after Olivia M. Winslow was arrested and charged in connection to the same incident, which occurred in the 600 block of Justison Street and went viral after a video of the exchange was posted on social media.
Court records obtained by WDEL report the victim telling police Amy “forcefully” snatched a political sign from her hand while Winslow stole the MAGA hat and handed it to her alleged accomplice. Winslow is also accused of knocking a hat off an adult woman’s head. As the victim’s 7-year-old son went to retrieve the hat off the ground, Amy allegedly attempted to stomp on the hat, but stomped on the boy’s hand, according to statements in court records. The little boy wasn’t hurt, but did begin to cry, police said.
Amy was accused of punching a third victim, a man, in the face, resulting in a small laceration to his lip which caused him “substantial pain” the victim told police in court records. Amy then allegedly threw the MAGA hat over a fence and struck the adult woman in the face with a closed fist, which did not result in injury, court records said.
Amy is facing the same charges as Winslow–first-degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy, and endangering the welfare of a child–along with an additional two counts of offensive touching. She was committed to the Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution in lieu of $45,000 secured bond.
After a summer in which “peaceful protesters” and their Black Lives Matter compatriots seem to feel no consequences for creating paths of destruction, it’s nice to see at least a couple of people on the left feel a few natural consequences for their actions.
