The dude who stole the hat and threw the drink has lost his job and been booked into county jail on a charge of theft with a possible charge of assault either of which which count as a strike under the three strikes law (He already has a drug possession conviction and a car theft conviction) , so this will probably get him 15 or 25 to life minimum sentence if he is convicted which is practically a given with the video evidence available.

He is about to discover the consequences of his actions...

He'll spend 90 days in jail or less, wait and see.

Actually they'll find an excuse to drop the charges. Have to keep the crazies motivated

I thought 3 strikes only applies to felonies. That was a misdemeanor theft and assault.

Wait...wait...Strong armed Robbery? Could qualify as that but I don't think so. He snatched the hat from the kid didn't demand he give it to him. Oddly enough that's a lesser crime.

Felony theft? for a hat? I dunno do they mean strong arm robbery? Again that's possible. But Felony theft has to be a gun or ovver a certain amount of money I thought.

In Cal, there's a case affirmed on appeal that allowed the third strike to be a man who snatched a piece of pizza from a kid. Taxpayers now pay for his housing for life.

How is it a "possible charge of assault"? That's obviously assault.

the prosecutor wants to see which way the media spins the story, and the "public opinion" before he decides weather or not to do his job.
