First, for background, see my post here from October 1st. Then watch the video below for visual and aural reference.
Now that we’re all up to speed, here is an article from Breitbart.com:
Report: UC Riverside Student Faces Up to One Year in Jail over Alleged MAGA Hat Theft
by Tom Ciccotta
UC Riverside student Edith Macias has reportedly been charged with one misdemeanor count of grand theft for a September incident in which she allegedly stole a MAGA hat from one of her peers.
At this point I’m certain she’s hyperventilating at the thought. But wait, there’s more.
According to a document provided to The College Fix by the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office, Macias has been charged with one misdemeanor count of grand theft. Her next scheduled court date will take place in March 2018. According to a spokesman for the district attorney’s office, Macias could face up to one year in county jail.
Of course she won’t do a year. Likely she’ll be placed on probation. And the only reason she’ll acquire that is because the entire incident was properly documented by Matthew Vitale.
Note to Conservatives On Campus: the video and photo aspects of your phone can be your best friend in challenging times. Do what every other Leftist does. Record everything. Believe nothing.
“I’m very pleased that the DA decided to charge her, especially because I am skeptical that UCR student conduct did anything. I will be following up with the student conduct office to determine if anything was done,” he said.
Today, this is the best one can achieve considering the circumstances.
Vitale went on to explain that the charges against Macias should serve as a message to college students around the country as to what conduct is acceptable with regards to political discourse.
In my college years, had something like that occurred on campus and Edith stole an item belonging to another student and refused to give it back, her next memory would be that of awakening on the floor with a swollen jaw.
No one would have bartered or negotiated patiently for a return of their property. There would have been immediate consequences for stupid and/or illegal behavior.
Precisely what’s missing today: common sense and obvious consequences in a timely fashion.
That’s called problem-solving at the lowest possible level.
