According to an ANTIFA protester, there is a good defense against their violent acts. Yvette Felarca, better known as the person responsible for the University of California, Berkeley riot earlier this year, claims to have the perfect excuse. She says that violence against people on the far-right is “not a crime.”
In reality, it is, as Felarca is facing assault charges after she was caught on video attacking someone during a July 2016 rally. She was formally charged with “assault by means of force likely to inflict great bodily injury, participating in a riot, and inciting a riot.”
However, the Huffington Post reported her defense on Wednesday. She claims that her actions were in self defense. That means, to her, it wasn’t “a crime.”
People with common sense know that self-defense happens when the person is being attacked and stands up for themselves. However, Felarca is adamant about there claims, appearing on several news stations defending her actions. Let’s see how her argument stands in front of a judge.
