A guy strolling around in Seattle wearing a Swastika armband and harassing people left and right has learned the hard way that people like him are not welcomed in the city.
Of course, we at Techly do not condone violence in any shape or form.
Fortunately, our society has a legal system in place designed to judicialize criminal activity so we normal citizens don’t have to go about armed to the teeth like Deadpool to defend our basic rights from the savage next door.
But honestly, I can’t deny the exquisite inner satisfaction at watching a guy who proclaims violence and aggression as an ideology getting his butt mercilessly kicked.
Past Sunday, numerous Twitter users banded together to track down a guy walking around the streets of Seattle, wearing a Nazi armband and supposedly armed. The man was first spotted on a bus allegedly harassing a black man.

The picture was posted on Seattle’s subreddit and several people quickly began to actively attempt to identify him. Meanwhile, other users on Twitter documented the guy’s behaviour as he strolled through the streets.

People began to spot the neo-Nazi sharing his location on Twitter until somebody actually got to him. Next thing we know this video was posted on Youtube becoming viral.
Seattle police officials did confirm on Monday the reports of the man, adding he was “instigating fights” and didn’t want to cooperate when approached by officers.
“Police were on scene in 5 mins; found him on the ground. He declined to provide info about incident; left after removing his armband,” the department tweeted. “No one else at the scene contacted officers to make a report about the incident.”
One of the users involved in the Twitter hunt talked to Buzzfeed and stated,
“I would say that we successfully identified, tracked and coordinated to neutralize a clear and present danger to Seattle. Whether we coordinated the actual punch or not,” he said, describing himself as an anti-fascist fighter.
“I, for one, applaud the anonymous hero.”
