Halloween attack on child over costume was wrong

Are we becoming a nation of politically correct morons, that we attack children due to their Halloween costumes? In Kentucky, a 5-year-old and his family were attacked during trick-or-trunk because his father was a history buff. The costumes were of an SS officer and Hitler. The problem is that the assault was a crime. Since when do we tolerate costumes of “characters” that slaughter people on screen and movies is OK, but historical figures are not because of “sensitivities”?

Why not just cancel the events so that no one is offended? We can all dress as dogs, cats, and forget the fun.

Come on people, attacking a child is child abuse under the law. The sad thing is that the criminals assaulting this family were adults.
