So, this California student steals a hat from the person of another and the video goes viral.  I'll show you the video.

Pure left-wing ire and angst because someone had the temerity to wear a hat that they didn't agree with.  At the end of the video, we see the police arrive, and it didn't turn out like she expected it to.

Legal Insurrection is reporting that the student has been charged and face a year in jail.

She's lucky that she didn't commit the crime in Louisiana.  From what I've seen of the vieo, that set of circumstances would be charged as Simple Robbery.
§65.  Simple robbery
A.  Simple robbery is the taking of anything of value belonging to another from the person of another or that is in the immediate control of another, by use of force or intimidation, but not armed with a dangerous weapon. 
B.  Whoever commits the crime of simple robbery shall be fined not more than three thousand dollars, imprisoned with or without hard labor for not more than seven years, or both.  
She keeps yammering on in the video about having rights.  Yeah, I'd have told her.  "You have the right to remain silent.  You have the right to an attorney."  etc, etc.

"You have the right to remain silent...."

She has the right but lacks the ability...

She doesn't need to be prosecuted.

What this special little snowflake desperately needs is is the next time she pulls a stunt like this, the person she does it to tells her to give the item back. And when she refuses, said person administers the worst beating she has ever experienced.

What she did was a second degree felony in Texas, at least if the victim was placed in fear of being hurt:

Sec. 29.02. ROBBERY. (a) A person commits an offense if, in the course of committing theft as defined in Chapter 31 and with intent to obtain or maintain control of the property, he:
(1) intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another; or
(2) intentionally or knowingly threatens or places another in fear of imminent bodily injury or death.
(b) An offense under this section is a felony of the second degree.

Sec. 12.33. SECOND DEGREE FELONY PUNISHMENT. (a) An individual adjudged guilty of a felony of the second degree shall be punished by imprisonment in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for any term of not more than 20 years or less than 2 years.
(b) In addition to imprisonment, an individual adjudged guilty of a felony of the second degree may be punished by a fine not to exceed $10,000.

My old uncle used to say there's more crazy people to the square yard in Caliornia than anywhere else in the world. Guess he knew, 2 of his moved out there to stay. Told me when those people cook a chicken they boil it whole, no salt, no pepper, no nothin'. He visited once, never went back.
