Kirsters Baish| It seems as though the San Antonio Police are getting ready to prosecute 30-year-old Kino Jimenez, the liberal who assaulted a Trump supporting teenager inside a Texas Whataburger restaurant this week, ripping the teen’s “Make America Great Again” hat off of his head and throwing a full soda on the boy and his friends.
The video of the assault made its way around the internet after the mother of one of the boys posted it on Facebook, asking the public to help identify the attacker. Social media users eventually revealed the man to be Kino Jimenez. Jimenez’s employer, Rumble Bar, which is located in San Antonio, posted to Facebook explaining that they do not condone their employee’s behavior. They went on to publicly fire Jimenez. The post was later deleted from their Facebook page.
PJ Media reports that San Antonio police explained that they will not be confirming the identity of the man until he is arrested. San Antonio Police Media Services told PJ Media that the suspect in the video “was reported by many people.” They also stated, “We cannot confirm that this is the suspect, but we are following all leads.”
The guardian of the assaulted teenager filed a report this week on the assault. Ortiz explained that the officers are working on the case. He explained, “I can guarantee we are actively on it and hopefully by the end of the day we will have the suspect in custody. At a minimum, there will be charges filed for assault.” He explained that the report will not be made public, simply because of the fact that a minor was involved. Texas law states that any report involving a minor cannot be made public, even after the name of the victim has been released.
It seems as though police have already arrested the suspect, or they are planning to very shortly.
The assault came not long after Democratic California Representative Maxine Waters called on supporters to further attack and harass Trump administration officials.
She yelled to a crowd a couple of weeks ago, “No peace, no sleep! If you see anybody from President Trump’s cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them! And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!”
The Whataburger said they don’t condone such actions, none of their employees were involved or witnessed the event. You can see the restaurant appears to be empty except for the kids, the suspect and the man who appears to leave with him.
Surprisingly, the kids involved, Hunter Richard who had his hat stolen and his friend Braxton Gonzales who was at the table, had a pretty classy response to the suspect.
The Daily Wire reports that the assaulted teenager, Hunter Richard, explained, “I’m mixed on it. I do feel like he deserves what he got. He unlawfully came over, stole a hat and chucked a drink in my face. But at the same time, people make mistakes.”
One of the other boys who was sitting at the table during the time of the attack, Braxton Gonzales, felt similarly about the event. He explained that what Jimenez did was “completely ridiculous and uncalled for.” He did explain, however, that he hopes the suspect is given a second chance.
An arrest has been made in connection with a viral video in which a teenager’s Make America Great Again hat was torn off by a stranger at a San Antonio Whataburger.
30-year-old Kino Jimenez was located by robbery task force detectives in Universal City, police said, and taken into custody on a warrant for theft of person.
