On Monday, a couple who waved Confederate flags, yelled racial slurs and pointed a gun at a group of children gathered for an 8-year-old’s birthday party were sentenced to prison by a Georgia judge, CNN reported.
On July 25, 2015, Jose “Joe” Torres and Kayla Norton were part of a group of people who went on a “drunken rampage,” riding around in pickup trucks adorned with Confederate battle flags, the Journal-Constitution reported.
And when they came upon a black child’s birthday party, they yelled racial slurs as they drove by, according to CNN’s witnesses.
They parked and got out of their trucks — with weapons. They approached the kids’ party, where people were grilling, and children were playing in a bouncy castle and eating snow cones, according to the DA
