Anti-fascists used social media to track down a neo-Nazi and beat him up. A man wearing a red Nazi armband was spotted on a bus in Seattle, according to Buzzfeed News. He was reportedly harassing a black passenger. A social media user snapped a photo and submitted it to an anti-fascist Twitter account.
It was soon shared to Reddit's Seattle subreddit where it picked up followers.
