Masked left-wing thugs threw smoke grenades and assaulted people at a pro-Trump event in Vancouver, Washington. It took place at the Esther Short Park.
Many of the perpetrators identified themselves as Antifa. A small group called themselves SHARP. While Antifa groups do not generally have formal members, SHARP is a patched gang within the Antifa movement. The name stands for “Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice.” They base their membership structure off of Motorcycle Clubs, but they usually do not have any motorcycles of their own.
Riot police moved in and arrested eight of the attackers:
Meaghan M. Summerbell, 22- Attempted Assault IV and Reckless Endangerment
Patrick C. Commons, 24 – Obstruction
Taylor J. Evans, 24- Disorderly Conduct

Brittany E. Johnson, 24- Malicious Mischief III
Michah DC. Fletcher, 21 – Fireworks in a Park
