Justice: Racist Couple Gets 35 Years For Terrorizing Black Child's Birthday PartyIt takes some serious hate to do this to a child during their birthday party. A Georgia couple has been sentenced to a combined 35 years in prison after puling up to the birthday party with confederate flags, yelling racial slurs and making terroristic threats.
Jose Ismael Torres and Kayla Rae Norton were convicted earlier this month under a street gang terrorism law for the 2015 harassment in Douglassville, outside Atlanta, and cried in court on Monday.
Video footage from the party, little more than a month after Dylann Roof’s Charleston church massacre, shows a parade of trucks roaring by with Confederate battle flags.

The harsh penalties are due to the fact it was deemed a hate crime. Serves them right!
