    Anarchists Savagely Attack Air Force Officer With Mace And Baseball Bat

    Anarchists Savagely Attack Air Force Officer With Mace And Baseball Bat

    8:27 AM 09/09/2015

    Police in Washington state are searching for two anarchists who attacked an Air Force officer with mace and a baseball bat after a protest got out of hand.

    During the protest Sept. 5, the officer was forced to stop his motorcycle by a group of anarchists, Air Force Times reports. Upon seeing that there were two confederate flags on his motorcycle, two men dressed in black and camouflage clothing jumped forward and sprayed the officer in the face with mace. They also used a baseball bat to hit him in the back. A bystander tried to intervene and help the officer, but the bystander was also sprayed with mace.

    The name of the officer, who is a pilot from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, is not being released at this time. He suffered eye irritation and bruises on his shoulder and back from the baseball bat.

    The so-called peaceful protest also resulted in major damage to city hall in Olympia, Wash. Olympia police stated that while people have the right to speech under the First Amendment, the message of hatred spread at the event lead to violence against person and property.

    Police said that the hate group is known locally as the “anarchists” and the two males who assaulted the officer are reportedly both approximately 6 feet 4 inches tall.

    Police: 'Hate group' assaults Air Force officer

    By Jeff Schogol, Staff writer

    Police in Olympia, Washington, are looking for two men who assaulted an Air Force officer during a supposedly peaceful protest Sept. 5.

    The officer, described as a pilot at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, was stopped in traffic due to the protest when he was singled out by a “local hate group,” which calls itself the “anarchists,” according to a police news release.

    “The protesters saw two confederate flags attached to the back of the victim’s motorcycle and surrounded him, rocking the bike in an attempt to knock it over,” the news release said. “They sprayed the victim in the face with mace, and struck him in the back with a baseball bat and a glass bottle filled with red paint.”

    Police did not identify the Air Force officer, who suffered “severe eye irritation,” as well as a bruised shoulder and back in the attack, the news release said. A witness who tried to help the officer also was sprayed in the face with mace.
    A spokesman for the 62nd Airlift Wing at Joint Base Lewis-McChord declined to release the airman’s name, rank or other identifiable information.

    “Due to the fact that there is an on-going investigation into this matter, at this time we are not allowed to release any other information on this Airman other than to confirm he is assigned to the 62nd Airlift Wing, McChord Field, part of Joint Base Lewis-McChord,” Master Sgt. Todd Wivell said in an email Wednesday to Air Force Times.

    The police news release described the two men suspected of attacking the Air Force officer as white males who stand 6 feet 4 inches tall. All of the protesters wore black and camouflage clothing with masks covering their faces.

    While Olympia Police supports people expressing their First Amendment right to protest, the Sept. 5 gathering’s message was “violence and hatred” that resulted in two people being hurt and extensive damage to city hall, the news release said.

    Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Olympia Police Department at 360-753-8300 or Thurston County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
