Student Attacks Classmate And Teacher Over MAGA Hat

Senior Jo-Ann Butler could face charges after she assaulted a classmate and a teacher over a MAGA hat.

El Dorado, CA A California high school student was arrested on Monday after she assaulted another student and her teacher over her classmates Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat.

Jo-Ann Butler, a 17-year-old Union Mine High School senior, allegedly ripped a classmates MAGA hat off of their head and threw it on the floor, KOVR-TV reported.

The El Dorado Union High School District does permit students to wear political symbols as part of their clothing.

When her teacher tried to intervene and asked Butler to leave the classroom, she slapped him.

A classmate captured a grainy video of the classroom altercation.

The video showed the teacher in the back of the classroom trying to separate Butler from the other student to guide her out of the classroom.

Instead of leaving as requested, the video showed Butler unleashed a profanity-filled rant and then struck the teacher as he escorted her out of the classroom, according to KOVR.

Butler told KOVR that she was making a political statement when she grabbed the MAGA hat off her fellow student.

Thats a racist and hateful symbol, Butler said.

She said that her actions were intended to maybe just wake people up in some type of way, because its not cool the environment our classroom is in.

Her father, Chris Butler, said he didnt like the way his daughter behaved, but said the issue of wearing a MAGA hat in class is perhaps something that needs to be discussed, despite current rules that permit political expression.

I dont agree with grabbing someones hat and verbally talking to them in that way, he told KOVR. But as far as the issue being brought up, maybe this is something that needs to be brought up.

The school district released a statement that said student and staff safety was its highest priority, and that the district was cooperating with the El Dorado County Sheriffs Office.

Butler was suspended for one week from school for her attack on her classmate and teacher.

KOVR said they were waiting to find out if Butler would be charged with two counts of battery, according to KOVR.

I hope that she goes to a juvenile detention facility, and is assaulted once there.

And her action was also a racist and hateful symbol.

Ugly fat ass brainwashed immature cunt! This is exactly what Obammy and his crew hoped to achieve, target the weakest minds and unleash their volatile emotions. Time to start kicking the crap out of these losers and deem it a political statement!

You can tell exactly where she gets her behavior by her stupid ass fathers comments. I hope the school doesnt capitulate about the hat... it is a Make America Great Again hat so why does that offend these morons? Grrr

Charge the kid. And now perhaps its time to start holding the parents accountable with charges?

Charge her and get the word out this behavior is not acceptable.

She's an asshole with anger management issues. She'll be charged as a juvenile and put on probation, and probably be required to deal with her anger problems. Her life will not be ruined.

So she said she did her deed as a political statement. But I guess the other kid wearing a MAGA cap as a political statement wasn't allowed in her insane world...

These people are out of control. Bad parenting, and brainwashed by liberal nut jobs.

Her father is just as f**ked up as she is! He's rationalizing what she did!

I suspect that this is the type of b*tch who would go ahead and accuse a male of sexual assault, merely for glancing at her

Listening to Dad, its easy to figure out where this is coming from. Maybe he should be charged too...

I live in the community where this happened and to be honest I'm pi**ed over the way this has been handled. Last night, Friday the football game for Union Mine HS had to be cancelled because of threats of violence.

Jo-Ann Butler should have been expelled and she should be charged! But sadly this is liberal leftist California and her behavior is acceptable and will be excused. A one week suspension for her actions is barely a slap on the wrist, Based on her fathers comments I will bet you money that the school will now be rethinking their policy of allowing the students to act like young adults and freely express their political opinions like adults.

Political views are not justification for violence. She should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law to make an example.

Im telling you that once these people start getting their heads ripped off and people crapping down their necks they will finally understand you don't do this. Until then, they don't care. They figure nothing will happen to them. Hell you can harass cops now without problems.

Absolutely not to change the school policy on not wearing political agenda clothes. These kids in school have to learn to control themselves no matter if they agree or not! She sounds like a bully and very spoiled as Daddy is trying to protect her from anything she doesnt agree with. Very sad how these kids r being taught it is ok to lash out. She should be charged to the full extent of law and school policy!

But I bet if it was pro Obama back when he was President, daddy dear wouldn't be saying anything about it and what has to be discussed about it....Trump is bringing jobs back, cutting spending, and has done more for blacks than any other president, including Obummer...Maybe you throw that in your daughter's face and tell her to shutup and slap the crap out of her for using profanity at her teacher!

I, for one, am cheering on Trump's antics. Nothing has been more effective at decimating flyover states than the man they put into office.

I won't vote for him in 2020 just like I didn't in 2016, but if he wins again, I'll just pop more popcorn and get cozy.

go get 'em, Trump.

Sounds like the apple does not fall far from the tree! Filthy mouth bulling others over what they believe and no respect for teachers. Now these libtards claim this is what they are against when this is what they support!

Maybe, How to raise your violent child should be discussed. In a courtroom.

Looks like she took Maxine Water's advice to harass conservatives to heart and added assault besides. And daddy-o condones it. If she thinks Make America Great Again is racist and hateful, she must want the country to fail. How do you get to be a senior in high school without common sense or learning critical thinking? Wonder what would happen if a black student were wearing a MAGA hat? That would be interesting.

I really enjoy watching the left's complete meltdown, since the election in 2016. However, there is a massive need of psychological intervention across State and Party lines.

It isn't what a student is wearing! It's about a student that doesn't know how to control herself and needs to be punished for what she did! You have no right to put your hands on someone because they think differently than you! What ever happened to the respect that used to be shown to teachers? I wouldn't be a teacher today for anything in the world!

More government control is only the solution for those who cannot control themselves.

The student should do well in the halls of academia where "snowflakes" are coddled and revered! I would be surprised to hear that she is being accepted to the big bastions of liberalism and "free thinking".

As long as stupid parents stand up for their criminal daughters, the daughters will continue to be like that. Maybe the school should expell her and cost her a college education. She should surly go to court.

Assault is assault. There are more adult and proper ways to state your dislike of something BUT you need to always remember that just as you have the right to not like it, they have the right to like it. You don't have the right to damage their property because you don't like it, nor do you have the right to hit them.

She looks like she is not all there mentally, or maybe too easily influenced by looney liberals and fake news. A day in court with the possibility of July might give her some perspective .

Obviously a result of indoctrinating from her parents. These kids are being taught by parents and teachers that if you don't agree with someone that it's okay to assault them and call them racist. Gee where else in history has this sort of thing taken place? Oh yea it was the brown shirts in Nazi Germany.
