A couple weeks ago, on April 13th, I wrote a post about how the University of Washington (UW) Police Department was seeking to file charges against a husband and wife pairing who went to a Milo Yiannopoulos event at the UW campus, only to be ambushed by violent “anti-facsist” (aka antifa) agitators. In the course of this event, the wife shot the bald-headed monster-sized thug who was trying to assault her husband. In my opinion, this was a justified action. But UW police went and dug through their old Facebook Messenger history and are taking comments they made, most likely in jest, and turning them into a tool to send them up the river.
Assault charges filed Monday against a Ravenna couple in connection with the shooting of a protester outside a speech by former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos on Jan. 20 (EDITOR’S NOTE: Originally, it was thought the man had done the shooting.) allege they went to the University of Washington campus that night looking for trouble…
According to the charges, the day before Yiannopoulos was scheduled to talk at Kane Hall, Marc Hokoana had messaged a friend on Facebook, stating, “I can’t wait for tomorrow. I’m going to the milo event and if the snowflakes get out off hand I’m going to wade through their ranks and start cracking skulls.”
His friend asked him if he was “going to carry.”
Hokoana responded, “Nah, I’m going full melee,” but then wrote “Lily … is,” referring to his wife, Elizabeth…
Elizabeth Hokoana, 29, is charged with first-degree assault, with a firearm enhancement, and her husband, Marc, also 29, a one-time UW student, is charged with third-degree assault over his alleged use of pepper spray.
Prosecutors will seek bail for each of them at $50,000 when they are arraigned on May 8. The couple remain free.

Here’s footage of the incident itself…
I don’t understand how this is being prosecuted at all, but such is the state of play in King County, Washington, which includes Seattle. Oh, and the most ironic part? It’s not a Democrat prosecutor carrying this miscarriage of justice to trial. No, the guy is a Republican. Perhaps Mr. Satterberg has some hidden motives in this case.
Whatever the deal is, I hope Mr. and Mrs. Hokoana have the robust representation the will need in order to beat back these charges. Judging from the statements coming from their attorneys at this time, they appear to. Still, I would encourage them to explore every fundraising avenue possible, because the local prosecutors, led by Dan Satterberg, are out to take them down.
