WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Authorities say a vehicle in President Donald Trump’s motorcade was struck by a “2×4” and five middle school students are now facing charges.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said in a statement Saturday that the incident happened Friday around 1:45 p.m.

Officers assisting the U.S. Secret Service reported that a vehicle in the motorcade had been struck by what was believed to be a small, hard object.

Several members of the motorcade returned to the scene after completing the motorcade to look for witnesses and objects along the roadway.

A child from a local middle school confessed to throwing the wood at the motorcade and also implicated four additional students.

Charges will be filed with the Palm Beach County States Attorney’s Office.

No additional information was given.

      Liberal teachers are teaching young people to hate President Trump. And probably their parents as well. I say these kids need to learn that their actions have consequences. So prosecute and have the Secret Service pay them each a visit and put fear into them.

        Ah yes. If you want someone to respect you, the best method is to scare them into it by leveraging your institutionalized power.

        That’ll learn ’em that Trump is a man to be respected! That’ll learn us all!

      Agreed. That hate had to start somewhere. Home, school, protesters? Should be an attempt on POTUS life charge. Teach them that you do not mess with authority from police officers or the President of the United States. Make an example out of them and their families that,what is it the protesters are always saying, love not hate?

    Charge the kids. They learned to hate President Trum fast enough (from the parents I’m sure). Now they can learn there is a consequence. Evidently the parents are not teaching them right from wrong so this is the start. They need to learn respect sometime so they should learn it now.

      Everybody wants to hang the parents, but there actions could have come from friends, peer pressure and surely social and the far left media. Don’t take me wrong they should be charged and face reality

    Hope they are charged, and if it comes to light that a parent set them on this path charge them with instigating violence. If people actually start facing consequences for their hate filled acts they might think twice about committing them.

    Liberalism is a serious mental illness which is inflicting children in our nations’ schools.

    Poor innocent kids being arrested and charged….. this will be something else to riot over… Hashtag #gotnobrakes

    Yes, charge them. Make them pay damages, and court costs. Them sentence them to 400 hours of community service. Four hours every Saturday and Sunday for a year, say from 1pm to 5pm, so they won’t miss church or supper. Since they are minors, require one of the parents of each child to be on site during each days work.

    Hateful liberals doing what they are taught in school by hate filled vile teachers and ignorant parents that allow their brats to think it is ok to assault people and destroy public property,

  • Carl Simmons

    Don’t these people know this is a federal offense. Any attack on the presidents motorcade can be considered a terrorist act no matter who the president is

    Kiddies have to learn Right from Wrong, maybe this will help them in future decisions, not to act stupid! If any teachers were in charge of the students on the playground, they should also be charged for not keeping an eye out, or maybe, for encouraging such hateful behavior! Until the Education System cleanses the radical dumb Leftists from their midst, then I will continue to vote “NO” on every teachers salary raise! Too many Leftist Idiots running rampant and brainwashing students instead of educating them!

    They were probably just trying to help and do there part with building Mexicos border wall by donating materials? I would be soooo proud…good job boys (to bad Dumps window wasnt down so he couldve caught it with his little baby hands?)

    This will make the International news. Parents there will tell their own children how proud they are that they do not act like children from America . Let’s step up and change the dinner table conversation . President Trump is the President . Respect the office!

  • BillyB

    Bunch of dumb kids deserve to be charged and charge the parents/teachers too, especially if they’re neglecting the kids or “teaching” negative behavior. Trump will be throwing something back, in the form of a book, and it will hurt more than a piece of wood.
