A 15-year old girl at a Trump rally was pepper sprayed in the face, after tossing a jab at someone off-camera, while surrounded by a horde of Wisconsin supporters of the Republican candidate for President.
As you can see in the video below, numerous other people recorded the incident at a political rally in Janesville, Wisconsin.
Now, local authorities are seeking to identify the person wielding the pepper spray.
He wasn’t the guy punched.
The Trump supporter who pepper sprayed the teen girl was wearing a red hat that said “Make America Great Again” as you cans see in the 2nd video added below, which confirms that he was not the target of the teenager’s punch too.
In fact, he had no legitimate self-defense reason to injure the teen girl.
Presumably, the teenage girl wasn’t a threat to the pepper spraying person either, because she could barely move in the crush of people at the rally.
Madison.com identified the Trump supporter as Dan Crandall of Milton”
“I didn’t touch her,” Crandall said in an interview.
“A lot of people around her started chanting, ‘All lives matter’ and she got upset. She started to challenge why I was at the Trump rally since I was a grown man,” Crandall said. “I told her I was at the Trump rally because I was a grown man and I cared about my country.”
Crandall said someone standing behind him then pepper sprayed the girl.
The level of violence between Trump supporters and protesters in America today hasn’t been seen politics in over a generation.
Earlier this month, PINAC News reported on a number of police in North Carolina who got in trouble for arresting a black man for being assaulted and failing to take action to arrest the aggressor in the fight.
Another 19-year old girl was pepper sprayed in the face too, and went to the hospital for medical treatment after the event.
It’s never a good idea when in a crowd to lash out like this teenage girl did, because it can inflame crowds and have its own conseqences.
The crowd of Wisconsin Trump supporters booed loudly as the teenage girls walked away.
One of the heavy set men in the crowd – wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and geeky looking glasses – took it upon himself around the 45 second mark of the video below to throw all of his considerable weight into physically battering and harassing one of the teenage woman as they left the rally with their “Black Lives Matter” sign.
The unidentified girl turned around and delivered the “look of death” before pushing back.
Lucky for her, that Trump supporter decided that beating up girls was enough for one day, or maybe he was just low on pepper spray and the protesters were finally given space to depart without further violence.
Because Trump rallies seem to have no boundaries, and the grown men who attend them seem to have no fear of laying their hands on women who attend them.
Three wrongs don’t make a right.
