West U Trump hat kerfuffle: everyone is ridiculous

I honestly can’t figure out what would possess someone to confront a 14 year old with a MAGA hat while in line for ice cream. It’s pretty much a way to say “Hi, I am a crazy adult!”

I’m also mystified that this wound up with a police report (well after the fact) and that the West U police didn’t laugh at the people filing it, but then, I’m not a cop in a town full of entitled white people, so I guess I can see how these things happen.

Unfortunately I can believe how the wonderful power of social media what should have been a brief incident followed by some apologies into an internet-era thing.

I think we’d be better off if people had to discuss more of these things face to face, instead of on Facebook. (Also, get off my lawn.)
