A couple in Hobart, Indiana has been charged with two felony counts of intimidation and criminal recklessness after endangering two Trump-supporting teens.
The arrests and charges come after Cailyn Smith, 18, and Kyren Jones, 23, were accused of driving the teenage brothers off the road because they were enraged by the boys’ Donald Trump flags, which were attached to their bikes.
“This is an unfortunate incident that involved two brothers expressing their support for President Trump. Our residents in Hobart should be able to express their support for any political affiliation without fear of any adverse recourse,” Capt. James Gonzales of the Hobart Police Department said in a statement.
The incident actually occurred last July, but it wasn’t until now that police were able to obtain evidence from Snapchat that allowed them to make their case. See, the couple in this case was particularly stupid; they actually filmed their own felony. Sure makes things easier for police when viral-video obsessed leftists put their own crimes on the internet, doesn’t it?
A local Fox News affiliate describes the footage:
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.
Keep in mind, the cycling brothers are only 14 years old. Takes a steel spine to intimidate 14-year-olds when you’re in a friggin’ Chevy Malibu. These two are stupid and cowardly in equal measure.
It’s getting hairy out there for supporters of the president, that much is for sure. In just the last month, we’ve seen left-wing nutjobs attack Republicans at a voter registration tent in Florida, punch a Trump-supporting man celebrating his birthday in Nashville, and threaten to kill President Trump himself with a knife outside the White House. Of course, all of this is treated as barely worth mentioning by the mainstream media.
Bad news for leftist psychos: Trump supporters won’t be cowed or intimidated. And one of these days, a froggy liberal is going to jump on the wrong lily pad.
