Maryland teens charged with hate crimes for setting President Trump campaign sign on fire



Two Baltimore teenagers have been slammed with hate crime charges for setting fire to a President Trump campaign sign last week, officials said.

Joy Shuford and D'Asia Perry, both 19, are accused of lighting a "Make America Great Again" sign on fire in Princess Anne, a small town on Maryland's eastern coast, the state fire marshal's office said in a statement.

The sign, which also totes failed GOP Senate candidate Kathy Szeliga's name, was detected torched by authorities on Friday. Pictures show minor fire damage to the sign's bottom left corner.

The blaze apparently spread in the grass below the sign, causing an estimated $800-worth of damages, according to officials.

A Princess Anne officer justified the hate crime charge by ambiguously referencing the perpetrators' race.

"The intentional burning of these political signs, along with the beliefs, religious views and race of this political affiliation, directly coincides with the victim," the officer wrote in charging documents.

Fuck Princess Anne, MD....this does not rise to the level of a hate crime you idiots!
