An 8-year-old’s birthday party was interrupted by an unsolicited parade of hatred, which has resulted in a hefty sentence for one Georgia couple:
- Kayla Rae Norton,
- Jose Ismael Torres.
The couple’s unprovoked act of cruelty, fueled by racism, ended up having some major repercussions for both Norton and Torres.
The two white supremacists broke down during their court testimony and apologized for their hate crime.
In July 2015, an 8-year-old’s birthday party celebration in Douglasville, Georgia became a target for malice as a group of 15 people drove past the house waving Confederate flags and shouting racial slurs.
Several flag-adorned trucks paraded past the boy’s house as well as harassing locals at a nearby Walmart and convenience store. The event took place less than a month after white supremacist Dylann Roof murdered nine African-Americans at a church in Charleston, South Carolina.
The couple, 25-year-old Kayla Rae Norton and 26-year-old Jose Ismael Torres, were members of a group called “Respect the Flag.” Norton and Torres were among four people in the group who were charged with felonies.
Not only did the group of white supremacists taunt the party-goers with Confederate flags and racial slurs, they also reportedly threatened to kill the innocent attendees. According to prosecutors, at one point Torres aimed a shotgun at the child’s birthday celebration.
