A young man and young woman in their mid-twenties were sentenced to a combined 35 years in jail after they decided to harass a black child at his birthday party. Not only did they drive around the party with a truck full of confederate flags, but they also yelled racial slurs at the child and issued death threats to the child and birthday party guests.
One might assume that this all occurred after the 2017 election, given how racially charged the aftermath has been, but the incident was just weeks after the Charleston massacre. During sentencing in court, the defendants, Jose Ismael Torres and Kayla Rae Norton, both cried.
What do you think of the verdict and the street gang terrorism law that led to their sentencing?
