This past weekend the anti-Trump protesters were out again to cause havoc. While the presidential motorcade was driving in Florida protesters threw a “small, hard” object. The latest stunt could have caused serious harm to President Trump, but thankfully it didn’t. Well, now the thugs who attacked the motorcade are learning a brutal lesson in karma.
It is one thing to civilly protest it is quite another to attempt harm. Especially if the person is the President of the Unites States. When Trump’s motorcade was attacked, the police launched a manhunt to apprehend the criminals quickly. The police returned to the scene of the crime. That is where they found a 2“ x 4” inch wood block. The officers then addressed the situation on its Facebook page to alert the public.
The post, in part, read:
“The investigation determined that a juvenile from a local middle school confessed to throwing the 2 x 4 (see attached) at the motorcade. The juvenile also implicated four additional students that were involved for a total of five.”
It did not take long for the police to locate the 5 middle-school kids who caused this terrifying incident. Now they are learning there are severe consequences to their actions, and are facing charges.

During Trump’s motorcade, there were protesters nearby but no one is sure if these kids were a part of it. However, one thing is certain, these kids deserve the strictest punishment. Though people actually are arguing what type of punishment these kids should face, which I find hard to believe.
Assaulting certain government officials, including the president, is a class A misdemeanor. That carries a 6-month to 1-year sentence & a $100,000 fine. If the block of wood the teens used is determined to be a “deadly weapon,” the assault would be a class C felony which carries a 10-25 year sentence and a $250,000 fine. The latter sentence would suit me fine.
Also, I think that the parents should face some sort of consequence for the actions of their children. These children have not been taught respect for anyone for them to behave in this sort of capacity. However, this is what is expected after 8 long years of the Obama administration. Obama coddled people who caused this sort of violence and never once rebuked their actions. That is why they believe they can get away with this behavior now, but they are sorely mistaken.
I just hope these thugs are punished to the fullest extent of the law because next time someone could get seriously hurt.
What do you think?
