Woman Assaults 12-Year-Old Boy Over Trump Sign

Colorado authorities are looking for a woman they say attacked a 12-year-old boy because he was riding his bike around the neighborhood while displaying a Donald Trump campaign sign.

The incident occurred Monday in Boulder, police say. The woman, who police say is in her late 20s/early 30s, was riding a moped when she passed the boy, who was heading in the opposite direction. “The suspect made a U-turn and approached the victim and began assaulting him because of his political banner,” according to a Boulder Police Department report. “The suspect then attempted to take the banner but was unsuccessful.”

Authorities have not revealed the extent of the boy’s injuries.

Do you get angry when someone’s political views don’t align with yours? In general, have people become more violent?
