A white woman in Georgia and a white looking man with a Hispanic last name and "were just collectively sentenced to 35 years for invading an African-American child’s birthday party while waving Confederate flags and weapons.
Kayla Rae Norton, 25, and Jose Ismael Torres, 26, were a part of a “Respect the Flag” convoy of over a dozen Confederate flag-laden pick up trucks who had drunkenly rampaged through two Georgia counties. They screamed racial epithets at black motorists and on at least one occasion approached a black motorist with a gun.
[The prosecuting attorneys reportedly used laws aimed at street gangs to convict them.]
“Many good people in Paulding County saw you for what you are,” Superior Court Judge William McClain said before handing down the sentence. “Everywhere you went, 911 call centers were flooded with calls.”
The group eventually descended on an 8-year-old black girl’s birthday party. Members of the convoy claimed that one of the partygoers had thrown an object at their trucks."
