Or maybe they got the right guy.

None of us were there and donít know what, if anything, precipitated the attack.

This part of DC has substantial camera surveillance. Wonít be too challenging to locate the attackers.

Who knows. Maybe it was a Trump supporter telling blacks to go back to Africa.

Trump can say anything he wants from the safety of White House or while hiding behind his body guards, but if you speak like that on the street, someone might punch you in the face. I do not condone violence, but some people will resort to it if you disrespect them enough.

So now every criminal act is now political and/or racist when 99% of the time its just bad people doing bad things while those with an agenda try to twist it to suit.

Iím hoping the man or some other man didnít do anything inappropriate when it came to one of the young teens. It was late at and people are usually a bit tipsy. All of the teens came after him - boys and girls. But then again, teens today are another breed...

We need politicians in both parties and their media to start calming things down and work
at uniting our country rather than dividing us over race, gender, religion, politics, and economic status.

Maybe Trump should tell them to go back where they came from. Those words are always so uniting.

If there is growing unrest and division in this country, look no further than a guy with orange skin and bad hair.

Y'all seem to know way more facts than they are offer up in the reporting of this story.

Y'all need to get to DC and share with the local authorities if you know so much.
