She has done it again! Done what? “The right thing”.  Delaware is fortunate to have my friend, Kathy Jennings, as AG.  I have known her a long time, and I am sure she is no fan of Trumpsters, but she is a person of integrity, and therefore brought these charges.

Excerpts from the Article:

The two women seen in a viral video confronting and taking a red “Make America Great Again” hat from supporters of President Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention in Wilmington last month have been indicted on hate crime charges.

Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy, both 21 and from Wilmington, were indicted by a New Castle County grand jury on Tuesday 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.

In a video posted on social media, Winslow and Amy were seen damaging signs and taking a red MAGA hat from a group of Trump supporters protesting the nomination of former Vice President Joe Biden as the Democratic nominee for president. A young boy in the video can be heard saying, “That’s somebody else’s hat,” after Winslow appears to pick it up off the ground and throws it.

“Call 911,” the boy says to his mother as the two women walk away with the hat.

The video, posted by the Students for Trump Twitter account, appears to show two women taking a MAGA hat from a boy before getting into an altercation. Later in the video, a man attempting to get the hat back appears to be punched by the second suspect, who later throws the hat over a fence.

Video of the confrontation, posted by Students for Trump on Twitter, has been viewed millions of times and was shared by Trump’s son Donald Jr.

Winslow and Amy were arrested shortly after the incident. Wilmington police said they identified the two after reviewing the video footage.

Three of the seven charges the two women face are felonies and collectively are punishable by 15 years in prison.

The hate crimes charge could lead to the most prison time of all the charges. Delaware law states that a person is guilty of such when they commit a “crime for the purpose of interfering with the victim’s free exercise or enjoyment of any right, privilege or immunity protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, or commits said crime because the victim has exercised or enjoyed said rights.”

Delaware Attorney General Kathy Jennings, whose office pursued the indictment against the women, said in a written statement Tuesday that “harming another person — let alone a child — because of the expression of their views betrays the principles on which our country was founded.”

The two women are out on bail, a spokesman for Jennings said Tuesday. It is unclear when they are to be arraigned on the charges.

Letter to the Editor – She did the Right Thing – 9/9/20

The Delaware Department of Justice recently indicted a couple of people who stole a MAGA hat from a Trump supporter and started a fight, which prompts me to write this letter.

She has done it again! Done what? “The right thing”.  Delaware is fortunate to have my friend, Kathy Jennings, as AG.  I have known her a long time, and I am sure she is no fan of Trumpsters, but she is a person of integrity, and therefore brought these charges.

All of us are Blessed to have some people of integrity in our government.

Ken Abraham, former prosecutor, founder of Citizens of Criminal JUSTICE, Dover, DE 302-423-4067

INSTRUCTIONS FOR LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

I get lots of letters published, and ghost write for others. THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO REACH THOUSANDS OF READERS! SEARCH “The top ten newspapers” in (your state!).

The keys to getting your Letter published are:
1. Keep it to 250 words or fewer.
2. Do not make it about “poor little old me”. Describe the problem as one which not only affects the individual, but is a senseless or ineffective measure, policy, or law which also harms communities and society. For example, with reentry, the obstacles make it unnecessarily difficult for the individual, but also harm society by making it hard to become productive, spending money and paying taxes in the community, and they cause increased recidivism = increased crime.
3. Speak from your heart.
4. Google any facts you are not sure about.
5. Do not name-call.
Do what works: Write that Letter!
