On Tuesday two women from Delaware, who were accused of stealing a MAGA hat outside the Democrat National Convention, were indicted on some rather serious charges.
Wilmington Police said they identified Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy after reviewing the footage on video.
Winslow and Amy, who are both 21 years old, were indicted by a grand jury on charges of second-degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy, endangering the welfare of a child, third-degree assault, attempted third-degree assault, offensive touching and felony hate crimes.
Because three of the charges are felonies, the two women could spend a total of 15 years in prison.
It has been reported, in a statement, by a spokesperson for Delaware Attorney General Kathy Jennings that Winslow and Amy are now out on bail.
Jennings also said, “[H]arming another person – let alone a child – because of the expression of their views betrays the principles on which our country was founded.”
A viral video got the two women arrested. It allegedly shows the suspects ripping up Trump signs and stealing a MAGA hat near the site of Democrat Joe Biden’s acceptance speech in August.
The confrontation between the suspects and adults coming to the defense of a 7-year-old supporter of President Trump stated in what followed.
In the video, the young boy said, “That’s somebody else’s hat.”
The women ripped up several Trump signs in the parking lot of the Chase Center in Wilmington. Parts of the Democratic Convention were held there. It was then that one of the suspects grabbed a Trump hat that was lying on the ground.
An adult is heard saying, “Get your hat back, baby.” as they followed the suspects, demanding the return of the hat.
A man joined the mother and son to try and get the hat back and then one of the suspects allegedly punched the man in the face.
Now two young women face prison over hate for a red hat.
Hopefully, this will be a sign to some that it is against the law to steal and that includes stealing or the destruction of political signs and MAGA hats.
