Yesterday, a video showing a teenage boy who being assaulted at a restaurant for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat swept across the Internet as calls for the man’s arrest echoed all over the country.
The man in the video, who has been identified as 30-year-old Kino Jimenez, took the hat and never gave it back, also throwing a soda in the boy’s face, using foul and abusive language to insult the young man.
Well, Jimenez has been arrested for his crime and could face a pretty stiff penalty for his actions.
A suspect in the case, 30-year-old Kino Jimenez, was arrested Thursday night in Universal City, according to KENS-TV in San Antonio. He has been charged with theft, San Antonio police said.
The man stole the hat bearing the slogan of President Donald Trump and ripped out a few of Hunter Richard’s hairs Wednesday before he walked away, the 16-year-old told KENS-TV.
Hunter said he filed a police report. San Antonio police have not responded to a request for comment.
Whataburger released a statement Thursday saying no employees witnessed the incident.
“We were shocked to see this video and certainly don’t condone this type of customer behavior in our restaurants,” the statement said. “To be clear, no Whataburger employees were involved or witnessed the incident, and we ask that questions be directed to San Antonio PD as we continue supporting their efforts.”
Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager, said in a tweet that he would like to offer Hunter an autographed hat.
“I would love to send this teenager a signed @realDonaldTrump hat and stand with him in #SanAntonio,” Parscale tweeted. “There are hundreds of thousands that will stand with you there. Don’t let a few left bullies stop you from showing your #MAGA!”

Hopefully this man will be spending some time in prison for his actions, or at the very least be forced to replace the cost of the hat plus some. His actions were absolutely over the line, proving that he lacks the maturity to function in normal society.
No one is saying the man has to support Trump, but to become so emotionally unglued by someone who agrees with the president and his platform is beyond ridiculous and shows a proclivity to aggressive violence that has now become characteristic of the left.
At their core, folks like Jimenez are nothing more than petulant children who can’t stand the fact they haven’t been able to have their way. They were given everything they wanted for eight years and now that things have changed they are having a hard time dealing with it.
They thought they were going to live a permanently extended adolescence, but that dream came crashing to the ground. It’s now time to grow up. Let’s hope they do so.
