WATCH: Antifa Mob Beats Man In Seattle, Then Open Carrying Anarchist Learns How Stupid He Is

Seattle, WA - At the "March Against Sharia" protest in Seattle on Saturday, a mob of Antifa/Anarchists started beating a man. Unfortunately for one anarchist in particular, his decision to open-carry while participating in the beatdown could see him facing felony charges.

Peaceful counter-proteste

Seattle, WA - At the "March Against Sharia" protest in Seattle on Saturday, a mob of Antifa/Anarchists started beating a man. Unfortunately for one anarchist in particular, his decision to open-carry while participating in the beatdown could see him facing felony charges.

Peaceful counter-protesters, along with not-so-peaceful Antifa, showed up in Seattle to protest Saturday's "March Against Sharia." The march is being interpreted to be anti-Muslim, and many in the liberal city want nothing to do with it.

Seattle PD worked to keep the protest groups separated and there were only minor scuffles with Antifa throwing glitter.

One of the anarchists present could be seen open-carrying a pistol. Open carry is legal in the state of Washington, and there was nothing inherently illegal about him having a pistol at the protest.

A short while later, the Antifa group started marching through Seattle. Mike Bivins recorded as a fight broke out, and a swarm of Antifa attacked a man:

Seattle PD responded to the attack with lots of pepper spray and arrests:

Among those arrested was Mr. Antifa Open Carry:

Unfortunately for him, he's not going to get off as easy has his compatriots.

Assuming that the victim was not seriously harmed, the attack will only be a gross misdemeanor for most of the assailants. Unfortunately for Mr. Antifa Open Carry, he may end up with a double-dose of justice.

Washington state law makes it a felony to be armed with a deadly weapon while attacking somebody when three or more people are involved in the attack. There were clearly more than three people involved in the assault, and the open carry suspect was armed with a deadly weapon, so under state law he should be booked for felony criminal mischief.

At the time of this writing, Seattle PD has not verified what charges the suspects will be facing.

Do you think that felony charges are appropriate for this attack? We'd like to hear from you. Please let us know in the comments.
