Nazi Wearing Swastika Starts Harassing Black Man - Never Expected What Happened Next

Warning to white supremacists: you may want to watch your step. Many people are using social media to band together and spread the word to shut you down if they don’t like your behavior. With cameras, Twitter and Facebook, it’s becoming easier and easier to spread the word so that people can track you down without the help of police. In fact, you might find yourself the one calling for police if you step out of line.

The effectiveness of this new digital-age citizen watch system was perfectly exemplified last weekend. After a bit of a scene on a bus, there was a scuffle on the streets of Seattle, Washington on Sunday afternoon. The incident involved an unnamed man wearing a Nazi swastika armband. The man allegedly was harassing an African-American bus rider. When he got off the bus, he was attacked by people in retaliation. Bus passengers used social media to sound the alarm.

The unidentified white supremacist was sitting on Seattle's D line bus, where he allegedly started harassing a man of color. As the Nazi berated the black man, some bus riders snapped photos of him and posted them to Facebook and Twitter, describing what happened and noting that the man was 'headed to downtown'.

"#AntiFascistAlert," read one tweet. "Nazi Sh-t head seen on D line headed to downtown #Seattle. Submitter said they were harassing a black man on the bus."

The photo was passed on to members of anti-fascist groups, and members tracked the man down within an hour and a half. Someone found the Nazi on a street corner and confronted him, while another filmed the incident.

Several unidentified people approached the Nazi and argued. Much of the argument could not be made out on a video, then the Nazi could be heard yelling, "They deserve welfare!"

A man stepped forward and punched the Nazi, knocking him down with the single punch. Another man yelled, "Night, night."

Police were nearby and arrived immediately after the brawl. They claim they had reports of a man wearing the swastika armband instigating fights around the downtown area.

"Police were on the scene in five minutes and found him on the ground. He declined to provide info about the incident and left after removing his armband," said police in a statement. "No one else at the scene contacted officers to make a report about the incident."

Someone posted the footage of the white supremacist being knocked out, and many people congratulated the attackers.

"Today at Pike/3rd in Seattle: douchebag w Nazi armband walks around spewing racist vitriol, gets socked by a passerby. Bus stop cheered,” read a tweet from one of the witnesses.

"I would say that we successfully identified, tracked and coordinated to neutralize a clear and present danger to Seattle," said one of the social media users who initially helped raise the alarm about the Nazi. "Whether we coordinated the actual punch or not... I, for one, applaud the anonymous hero."
