Another MAGA hat incident. This one wouldn’t have amounted to much except the hat-stealing student refused a police request to return the hat. The incident started when a student named Tyler walked over to talk to some left-wing protesters who were there because a group of pro-free speech bikers called the Texas Nomads were coming to campus. The bikers never showed up so the left-wing protesters had nothing to occupy them. From Campus Reform:
The biker group had planned a protest at Texas State University over the student government’s failed attempt in April to ban the conservative group Turning Point USA from campus, the Austin Statesman reported. According to a Wednesday statement from the university, Texas Nomads SAR never showed.
As the conversation between Tyler M. and the leftist protesters continued, a crowd gathered around them, Tyler M. told Campus Reform…
Tyler M. said that as bystanders tried to quell the tension, “that’s when I felt someone kind of come up behind me and kind of grab my hat, lift it up, and try to run away.”…
The Texas State student said police later approached the student who was holding his hat and asked her to give it back. Tyler M. said she “hesitated at first but then she did drop it and as soon as the hat fell on the floor [sic] she kicks it.”
And that’s when Tyler started filming. It looks like the young woman in the grey top is the one refusing to release the hat. The video follows the hat across the ground and when the camera turns back around, police are arresting a second person dressed in a black hoodie. I honestly can’t tell if that person is a man or a woman. Someone off camera asks what happened and another voice (maybe Tyler) says she “hit the police.” Meanwhile, someone else is shouting and crying about the arrest of her friend.
The police march everyone to the police station on campus and the hysterical woman is now shouting at Tyler “Why are you here?!” He’s there as a witness of course.
Finally, police get everyone inside and then a third protester starts screaming at a policeman in plain clothes, “Don’t f***ing touch me!” Of course, policemen are allowed to touch you if you lose control in a police station. She gets arrested too.
