Trump Supporters Pepper Spray 15-Year-Old Girl at Rally

The progress from Western colonial global expansion, and the construction of American wealth and industry on the backs of enslaved Blacks and Native peoples, followed by the abrupt "emancipation" of the slaves and their exodus from the South to the Northern cities, has led us to our current divided society. Divided by economic inequities and unequal access to social resources, the nation lives in a media dream of social harmony, or did until YouTube set its bed on fire. Now, it is common knowledge that our current system of brutal racist policing and punitive over-incarceration serves the dual purpose of maintaining racial prejudice and the inequities it justifies. Brief yourself on this late-breaking development in American history here.

Things got heated – again – at a Donald Trump rally in Janesville, Wisconsin this week when two men groped and pepper sprayed a 15-year-old girl. A 19-year-old woman was also pepper sprayed. Both were treated at a nearby hospital.

The 15-year-old was protesting at the rally with sign reading, “Damn, Donald, back at it again with the white supremacy.” During the altercation between the protestors and the Trump supporters a man in the crowd groped the 15-year-old. After accusing him of touching her, the woman punched the man in the face and was then immediately pepper sprayed in the face.

The Trump supporters cheered after the girl was pepper sprayed, with one man screaming profanities at her:

This is not the first time protestors have been assaulted at a Trump rally by his supporters. What makes it worse is the fact that Trump seems to egg them on, even suggesting that some people should be assaulted.

A teen girl was pepper-sprayed Tuesday night outside a Donald Trump rally in Janesville, Wisconsin, the latest altercation at a Trump campaign event.

Alex Drake, 15, was protesting in the middle of a crowd of Trump supporters. As protesters surrounding Drake hoisted Black Lives Matter signs, Drake exchanged words with a Trump supporter. According to videos posted and obtained by ABC News, Drake appears to try and shove the supporter. Eyewitness Michelle Velez said that Drake threw the first punch.

You then see Drake immediately sprayed in the face with pepper spray. As she attempts to leave the crowd, a host of racial slurs and the word b---- are shouted at her.

Drake was escorted out by officers who poured water in her eyes to remove the spray. Janesville Police Srgt. Brian Donohoue told ABC News that Drake notified police that she had been groped by someone in the crowd. Police have now released a photo of a man they think could have sprayed her and are asking for the public's assistance in identifying him.
