An Indiana has now been charged with running two teenage boys off the road because they had Trump flags on their bikes, police said Friday.


According to a police affidavit, the Indiana couple, Kyren Gregory Perry-Jones, 23, and Cailyn Marie Smith pulled up in their car next to the boys and asked if they were Trump supporters. The boys, 14 year old twins, replied that they were.

From Fox 32 Chicago:

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.

The incident actually happened on July 22, but the police waited to charge them until Thursday, after they saw Snapchat video of the incident, there had been a delay getting the video from Snapchat.

In a video posted to Snapchat, allegedly by the couple of their encounter with the boy, shows “the driver turns the wheel sharply as if he saw the boys and wanted to hit them with the vehicle while yelling `ya’ll better get home,'” according to the affidavit. A male’s voice is then heard telling the female passenger “pull that flag down” in the video which shows the female trying to reach it through her window and her saying, “get closer.”

“The female is then heard saying `ya’ll scared, just like your president” and `America is not great'” followed by an expletive, according to the affidavit.

In a second Snapchat video, Perry-Jones allegedly says, “Don’t let me see you downtown” to one of the boys and threatens to beat him up.


We see incident after incident of violent leftists attacking people over Trump support and the nature of the attacks seems to be getting more violent with things like this, the man driving the van into the GOP volunteer tent in Florida and the man attacking three Trump supporters in New Hampshire. The boys here could have been seriously hurt. Yet what’s missing in this equation is national Democrats standing up and condemning such incidents, encouraging leftists to stop the crazy. Indeed, not only do national Democrats seem silent, they are constantly demonizing Trump and Trump supporters, even encouraging harassment, like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Ca) did. And it’s only going to ratchet up as we get closer to the election and the Democrats get more desperate.
