A student at UC Riverside stole another student’s MAGA hat, and threatened him.
Matthew Vitale was minding his own business when Edith Macias stole his MAGA hat off of his head, and then took off running. Matthew followed her into the campus office and asked her repeatedly to give his hat back. Edith screamed, cursed, and even threatened Matthew. Finally, the staff in the office got his hat back. When Edith attempted to storm out, she was greeted by campus security. But it does not seem as if anything was done about her behavior.
Matthew recorded the incident and posted the video to Facebook saying,
This is the face of the modern left. They are people who think they are better than you, think they know better than you, and think they can make decisions for you. People like this are what universities across America are putting out into this world.

As a warning, there’s a lot of foul language.
Edith also posted another video from the same incident to her Facebook page, but it has since been removed. Along with the video, Edith wrote,
Wearing a Make America Great Again cap at UCR… Youre making the decision to intentionally hurt people. “Make America Great Again” coded “Continue the Genocide of POC”. You feel safe cuz you got the cops and politicians on your side. Youre not safe… just saying. We need to make racists scared. Issa movement y’all. #SnatchAHat#FuckTrump#ChataFlies#Share#FTP

On Edith’s Facebook page, she says that her mother is here in America, illegally.
From the looks of Edith’s Facebook page, it seems she has attended protests against President Trump, the wall being built, and the police. She has also posted about Black Lives Matters event, so I’m assuming she attends those as well.
Edith shared an article about witches casting spells on our President, so there’s a chance she was involved in that as well.
Edith may be part of Antifa. On Jan. 21st, Edith posted a photo of herself to Facebook, wearing a black mask like Antifa members do.
Edith clearly has an issue with white people.
Edith receives financial aid. She posted to Facebook that she was using her financial aid to rent an apartment, but shortly after stealing Matthew’s hat, she started a go fund me, claiming to need funds for an apartment.
From looking at Edith’s Facebook, I’d say she’s always been a hateful person. In a post on FB, she wrote, “I was taught to hate myself before I ever learned that loving myself was an option…” Now she’s taking that hate out on everyone else. Typical liberal.
UPDATE: Edith Macias has been charged by the District Attorney’s Office.
In a Facebook post Matthew wrote:
Edith Macias has been formally charged by the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.
In another post, Matthew wrote:
…Edith Macias has been charged with a misdemeanor by the Riverside County DA’s Office pursuant to PC 487(c), grand theft from a person. A court date has been set…
UPDATE: Edith Macias will not serve any jail time for stealing the MAGA hat.
According to thecollegefix.com:
“The defendant pled guilty to one count of petty theft and was referred to our standard deferred entry of judgment (DEJ) program, which requires the completion of a class in exchange for a dismissal,” John Hall, a spokesman for the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office, told The College Fix via email Monday.
“Prior to agreeing to the DEJ program, the defendant provided proof that she has already completed eight anger-management classes and wrote an apology letter to the victim and UCR. If the defendant does not complete the DEJ program as agreed upon, she would be sentenced to 10 days in county jail and three years of summary probation,” Hall said.
