A father was walking with his daughter in a bowling alley when the pair started recording on their phone. What they said and did could only be described as despicable, bad parenting, and another reason why people are walking away from the Democratic Party to support President Trump.
The dad made an offer to his daughter that she apparently couldn’t refuse since the offer on the table was $100. All his daughter had to do to cash in was knock a MAGA hat off of another person* who was just sitting there with his friends and minding his own business.
She gladly stepped up to the challenge and took the offer. It was all caught on tape. The footage can be seen below.
Two people conspired to commit assault and battery on a Trump supporter and now their evidence has gone viral, being shared by thousands of people on social media. The bad news, which came as a brutal lesson too late, was that they looked absolutely embarrassing, irresponsible, and provided another reason why people have lost respect for the Democrats.
Had a white person done this to an Obama supporter, then they would have probably been charged with a hate crime.
Many believe that this father and daughter pair should be held to the same standards, especially the legal standards where they need to pay the price for being uncool in public. It’s one thing to knock the hat off of your own friend, but to go after a complete stranger is inappropriate. It’s what Maxine Waters asked for, right?
They could be in big trouble for premeditated assault and battery. By definition, the following are defined as:
Premeditated: “think out or plan (an action, especially a crime) beforehand.” They certainly did this as they discussed the details of the deal, which was $100 to knock the hat off the unsuspecting victim.
Assault: “make a physical attack on.” The girl did this when she touched the victim’s hat, possibly touching his head as well.
Battery: “the crime or tort of unconsented physical contact with another person, even where the contact is not violent but merely menacing or offensive.” This was obviously committed, but it will be debatable on if the assault was violent or not. A judge might say it’s still battery, but it’s the non-violent type and was meant to be offensive.
