A 14-year-old boy was brutally beaten on a school bus in Hamilton County, Florida because he had previously worn a Trump 2020 hat to school.
Three females and two males beat the boy, named Tyler, and he had to be hospitalized with head injuries. Tyler’s mother said that he had been bullied relentlessly after wearing the hat to school.
The attackers were all black and Tyler was white, his mother pointed out. “Plain and simple this was a hate crime and attempted murder according to the state of Florida since it was over three kids who jumped him and they were older and bigger,” she said.
After Tyler’s mother called the police about the injuries, his assailants were suspended from school.
The school had not been aware of the bullying, but a hospital examination found older bruising along with the fresh injuries.
