A California Student Can Get Up To A Year In Jail For Stealing Make America Great Again Hat

A California student is up to her neck in legal troubles.  EarHustle411 doesn’t advocate any activity that is not with the law.  This young lady obviously made a choice and that choice could get her up to a year in jail.

When she took the young man’s hat from his head she violated his space, he asked for it back and she chose to make a mockery of his right to wear the hat that many people despise.  Everyone in America has the right to exercise their freedom of speech according to the 1st Amendment regardless to what we physically see exposed to the masses.

What’s interesting is the school dug their head in the sand and did nothing more couldn’t have been done and while what the young lady was attempting to get across to the school, the fact is she did it the wrong way.

A college student in California who stole a “Make America Great Again” hat off of another student’s head faces up to a year in jail, according to a Tuesday report.

University of California, Riverside student Edith Macias is facing a misdemeanor charge of grand theft after stealing fellow student Matthew Vitale’s MAGA hat in September, according to a criminal complaint obtained by The College Fix.

“UCR is letting people wear this shit on campus?” asked Macias in a video of the incident. “Make American Great Again, really? There were lynchings and genocide and mass deportations.…I fucking hate this country.… And I am not leaving.…We need to get rid of all ya’ll.”

When Vitale asked for his hat back, she said “f*** your freedom of speech boy, your freedom of speech is literally killing a lot of people out there, your hats like these that promote laws and legislation that literally kill and murder people of color.”

Vitale noted his satisfaction with the district attorney’s charge, but expressed concern regarding the school’s response to the incident.

“If, as I suspect, UCR decided not to discipline [Macias] in some way this decision by the DA’s office shows two things: First, that UCR does not protect and shows no respect for speech that does not conform to their ideology,” said Vitale. “Second, that in this case UCR chose not to discipline a person who committed a crime on campus against another student.”

“I do want to send a message,” said the student to The College Fix. “I am not vindictive, I am not vengeful, but people especially in my generation need to realize you can’t do things like this because you don’t like what someone is saying or wearing.”

Macias’ court date is set for March 2018.
