Enough with the scary “MAGA Hat” criminals already. San Francisco Police are searching for a MAGA hat-wearing suspect who allegedly cut another man’s hand with a sword after an altercation in front of a roller rink on Friday at around 9:50 p.m.. Oh, and he conveniently left his MAGA hat all nice and tidy right by the pool of blood.
Update: San Francisco police have arrested Leor Bergland for the sword incident. Apparently he had been arrested previously for similar crimes in Oregon, according to Fox News.
Is that weird? Let’s put Jussie Smollett’s little routine away from a minute and assume this was a real incident. Hard to get his stunt out of our minds, but let’s try it.

wow, it’s almost as if it was staged… https://t.co/Drt3ApP37a
Well, we tried. Pretty hard to put that Smollett episode out of our minds, isn’t it?
According to the SF Chronicle:
A sword-wielding assailant wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat slashed a man in the hand during an altercation outside a popular roller-skating rink in San Francisco’s Western Addition on Friday, officials said.
Police are searching for the attacker, who fled the scene outside the Church of 8 Wheels on Fillmore and Fell streets, leaving his victim bleeding profusely on the sidewalk outside the crowded skating spot.
Investigators were searching for security video and speaking to witnesses Saturday as they tried to piece together the details of the bloody confrontation that unfolded during the rink’s Friday night adults-only roller disco.
According to witnesses, the victim tried to grab the man’s MAGA hat. The man, who was supposedly “dressed like a pirate” whipped out a “two foot long sword” and sliced his hand and wrist, according to NBC Bay Area. The suspect also reportedly screamed “homophobic” slurs. Police initially said the victim was wearing the hat, but later changed their report.
One witness stated that he saw the sword tucked into the man’s jacket about 30 minutes before the altercation.
“In my mind I didn’t think it was a real sword until we came out later and police were on the scene and there was blood and the hat on ground.” Scott Sweeney, witness
The victim was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He reportedly tried to chase the suspect before realizing how badly he was cut. The suspect fled the scene.
Most people who wear MAGA hats are not sword-wielding assailants dressed as pirates, as much as liberals want to paint us all that way. And why leave the hat behind?
Guess we’ll see after the investigation. Who did it?
So you mean to tell me, that a MAGA hat just “happened” to fall perfectly on the ground like that for the picture at a crime scene?— Mindy Robinson ?? (@iheartmindy) April 1, 2019

I don’t believe the headline, and the media only has itself to blame. There have been far too many ‘cry maga’ stories that have been shown to be false.— Todd A. Whitworth ??✌️⛵ (@dharmapunk5) March 31, 2019
