PD: 2 arrested for beating up man holding Trump sign

MERIDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Two people have been arrested for assaulting a man who was waving a Donald Trump sign and American flag in Meriden on Saturday.

At noon on Saturday, a Meriden Lieutenant was parked on Hanover Street where he saw a man standing on the traffic island at Hanover and Colony Streets waving a Donald Trump sign and an American flag.

Police say a silver car stopped at the island, two men got out and began punching and kicking the man, knocking him into the street. The Lieutenant intervened and arrested the two men. The victim told police that the two men gave him the finger, he responded “same to you” and then the assault started.

It was wrong for someone to respond to the guy for exercising his freedom of expression but the guy waving the flag and sign was inviting trouble to happen.
Supporters of The Donald need to chill and use their common sense.

So we have thousands of protesters in the streets burning cars, destroying property, blocking roads, burning flags costing the tax payers $$$ because of the police resources being utilized and this lonely trump supporter was peacefully waving a flag and a sign and he needs to use common sense? That's called blaming the victim.

3:13 pm - Are you on heavy drugs or a typical left wing nut?
What do you mean he is inviting trouble? Supporters need to chill and use common sense? I cannot believe I am reading this! Two men got out of the car and began punching and kicking him and it's his fault! Really? It is people like you where a simple condom should have been used years ago...

You will do very well under Sharia Law. I guess you also think that if a women shows her knees she is inviting trouble too. They were responsible for their actions. They did not have to stop they could have just kept going.

Let's see????? The assault for supporting America and the next incoming President by waving a flag and holding up a Trump sign warrants getting beat by two drug selling Democrat thugs, one black, one mexican. Now Mr.3:13pm commenter wants to place responsibility on the patriot, not the Democrat thugs who stopped their car, got out and it took two Democrat cowards to beat on him. Can you see the common ground of twisted Democratic logic? If you're a Republican, you are apparently already in the wrong, if you're a Democrat, we speak as one. 3:13 is a d.a. and that's not district attorney.

The hard working white middle class finally beat the left mafioso and we can't celebrate ? We celebrated openly and without fear when Germany surrendered during WW2. What has this country become ?

Wish I knew that 4 and 8 years ago when many were celebrating the big O's victories. They were gloating like they just won the lottery.
