From the article:
A middle school teacher in Berkeley, California, accused of punching a neo-Nazi during a 2016 protest is arguing that standing up to fascism is not a crime.
Yvette Felarca, 47, was arrested last month for her involvement in a June 2016 anti-fascist demonstration held in Sacramento.
Felarca, who is a member of an activist group called By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), has been charged with felony assault, as well as two misdemeanor counts of inciting and participating in a riot, according to KPIX TV.
Footage of the demonstration appears to show Felarca repeatedly punching a member of the Traditionalist Worker Party, a white nationalist group described as ”a front for neo-Nazi sympathizers” by ABC 10. The taller man is holding up his hands while trying to get police officers to help. Other protesters drag the man to the ground before the police intervene.
She should be in jail, in this country, we do not take the law into our own hands, period! https://t.co/To0yBWTvQz

Yeah, being a violent psychopath and attacking people is still a crime. https://t.co/4hJoGUHY42

Punching out of anti-bigot love for their neighbors, you guys. It's not assault if you're punching a white supremacist. https://t.co/pA1AFVSAtB

As for the group “By Any Means Necessary,” where’s the MSM coverage?

The Left: We aren't violent. We just want peace and justice!

BAMN is also the group that shut down Milo Yiannopoulos in Berkeley last year:
They seem nice.
