Couple Used Car To Run Kids On Bikes Off The Road Because They Had Trump Flags, Cops Say

Law enforcement officials arrested two people late this week for allegedly running two kids on bikes off the road because they had Trump flags on their bikes.
“Felony charges have been filed against a Hobart couple accused of running twin boys off the road because they had pro-Trump flags attached to their bicycles,” The Times of Northwest Indiana reported. “Snapchat videos helped officers secure charges against Kyren Gregory Perry-Jones, 23, and Cailyn Marie Smith, 18, in connection with a July 22 incident, police said.”
On the Snapchat video, Smith allegedly said, “Y’all scared, just like your president … America is not great, (expletive).”
At another point in the video, Perry-Jones allegedly confronted one of the kids and asked if he was a Trump supporter.
“Perry-Jones and Smith have each been charged with two counts of intimidation and criminal recklessness, all felonies,” The Times added. “They were also charged with one count each of theft and criminal mischief, which are misdemeanors, court records show.”
Authorities said that the couple turned the car “as if he saw the boys and wanted to hit them with the vehicle” while yelling at the boys and telling them to “pull that flag down.”
Perry-Jones, who is black, allegedly threatened to attack the boys for calling 911, and told them that if he was questioned by authorities, he would tell them that the boys called him a racial slur.
The boys said that Smith stole their Trump flag and that they chased after the car to get it back, at which point the couple dropped the flag and intentionally drove over it before driving away.
“This is an unfortunate event that involved two brothers expressing their support for President Trump,” Capt. James Gonzales said. “Our residents in Hobart should be able to express their support for any political affiliation without fear of any adverse recourse. The Hobart Police Department will continue to serve the Hobart residents to ensure they are free to express their support for whomever they choose and we will tirelessly work to preserve their 1st Amendment Rights under the United States Constitution.”
The alleged attack comes after Trump supporters across the country have been attacked by political extremists this month.
One of the most recent attacks happened earlier this month when a man rammed a vehicle into a GOP tent in Florida that was full of Republican volunteers.
Another incident from earlier this month involved a man in Florida who was charged with 10 counts of assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly threatening Trump supporters with a sword.
A little over a week ago, a man in New Hampshire was accused of striking a child in the face because the kid was a Trump supporter.
During the first week of February, law enforcement officials at Arizona State University opened an investigation into a man who was caught on video screaming at a group of Republican kids about wanting to murder Republicans.
Another event, reportedly from a little over a week ago, showed far-left activists allegedly attacking a booth at UC Santa Cruz that was hosted by College Republicans.

Video recorded last week at @ucsc shows far-left radicals destroying the tabling booth run by College Republicans.
