A parent posted on social media that their 14-year-old was in the hospital getting treatment and CT scan after he was attacked by a group of peers on a school bus because he was wearing a Trump hat.
The parent, whose identity is not known, posted on Twitter under the name "American Diaries."
This post is the start of their thread, the following quotes under it are hand picked to tell the story.
I am sitting in the hospital with my 14 year old kid because he was just jumped by 8 black kids on the school bus, I guess that's what happens when a kid wears a #Trump hat to school. And who's the violent ones again? Earlier today they poured milk all over his head.
He is getting CT scans of his head now. I need a good lawyer, they can't keep getting away with this kind of behavior.
Now that he's a bit more coherent he said it might've only been six kids but that's still a lot and they really hurt him. I'm just thankful he had the sense to cover his face but they did beat his head in his back, fetal position is what he was in.
Plain and simple this was a hate crime and attempted murder according to the state of Florida since it was over three kids that jumped him and these kids are older and larger. Thankfully my son got into the fetal position and held his hands over his head he's got defensive wounds
He's home. He's gonna be okay physically but he is not doing well mentally. All he wants to do is sleep but I'm scared to let him sleep with his head injuries. I will be up with him tonight I'm worried about the big bumps on his head.
I did break down and give him a Christmas present early to keep him awake. Minecraft for his Nintendo 3DS and that put a smile on his face.
Vote now to REMOVE Pelosi from GOVT!
If anybody has any suggestions about a good attorney to help us in this case please direct message me. We live in North Florida
The bus tape was reviewed and there is now a criminal investigation underway. I will continue to keep you all informed. Tyler is in a lot of pain today, very emotional and very upset. He wants to thank all of you for all the well wishes, as do I
I have an update. The five kids involved have been suspended until Monday, December 9 at which time they will be having a discipline hearing. I have obtained part of the incident via cell phone video. Should I post it?
The police is not considering it a hate crime because everyone that jumped on him were related. Yeah, I don't get it either. So if 5 white kids, all related, jumped a black child, no one would be screaming #HateCrime??? Double standards.
At this point, that's all you need to see.
Now is a good time to share our Free Trump hat offer. We paid for the hat, you cover the shipping.
Show these folks that you will support your president and you will not be ashamed of it.
