A 13-year-old Kentucky girl with autism says that she was brutally attacked by older teenagers twice in recent weeks for being white and having a family that supports President Donald Trump.
The teenagers also attacked her mother and younger siblings.
The young girl’s father had post-traumatic stress disorder and took his own life in 2017, which left her mother, Priscilla Mansell, trying her best to take care of their four children on her own. Unfortunately, this meant that they had to move to a bad part of Lexington because it was all that they could afford.
The Mansell’s are a military family and the girl’s grandfather is constantly working to raise awareness of veterans issues. On May 27, he tweeted about what has been happening to his lovely grandchild, Mariah, at the hands of much older teenagers in their apartment complex.
My 13 year old grand-daughter got beat up by a bunch of older punks in Kentucky because her family supports @realDonaldTrump, not once but twice already. Disgusting display of hatred. @cov_Gretchen @Beard_Vet @TJHproject @dbongino @Bfurlich pic.twitter.com/hHLaF4g1Tw

The police were called, but the assailants were not taken into custody because they are juveniles.
“Sorry, a gang of teenagers beating a 13 year old are criminals,” he wrote, along with a photo of the police speaking to the teenagers — who appear to be mostly male.
Police were called and tried to fight some more. Police did nothing, stating they were juvies. Sorry, a gang of teens beating a 13 year old are criminals. Lexington Ky pic.twitter.com/7t4tW9YaZ6
