Hundreds of students protested Donald Trump’s election win in Rockville, Maryland—but the demonstration quickly turned violent when four students mercilessly attacked a 15-year-old boy in a Trump “Make America Great Again Hat.”
The protesters were students at Richard Montgomery High School. Ironically, they were carrying signs that said, “Love Trumps Hate,” as they walked in front of the Rockville courthouse.
According to witnesses, upon seeing the teenage Trump supporter, the four students surrounded him, punching him repeatedly, before throwing the ground and kicking him.
“They jumped him and beat him up pretty bad,” said one witness.
Police aren’t exactly sure what caused this specific incident, other than the fact that the victim was wearing a Trump hat.
The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and wasn’t seriously injured considering the circumstances.
Police are currently working to find all four attackers, but they’ve already identified one: a 17-year-old, who has already been charged with second-degree assault.
