A white man was caught on video vandalizing property with swastika stickers in a California neighborhood last week.
Noah Mohan, 21, was walking his dog in Fairfax Tuesday afternoon when he spotted a man posting stickers that featured a large black swastika and the phrase, “We are everywhere.”
“What’s up with those stickers, bro?” Mohan asks the man, which he later posted to Instagram.
“Let me see your stickers. Why you putting up them Nazi stickers, dude? he demanded to know.
The young man — seen wearing a dark leather jacket, jeans, a black face mask and sunglasses with S.S. engraved on them — replies that he believes in that Nazi “ideology.”
Mohan continues recording the Nazi vandal, who police describe as a 19-year-old man from Livermore, and is seen ripping down the hateful stickers as he follows him throughout Fairfax.
“Let me see your face, bro,” Mohan says.
“If you stand by that ideology then stand by that s–t, bro. Don’t be putting up Nazi stickers in Fairfax. Not in my f—–g city, bro!”
When Monhan tells the Nazi that he is half Jewish, the man responds: “That explains it.”
The nearly 10-minute video ends with Mohan and a group of angry residents managing to flag down a local police officer and begins telling him that the man had been posting the swastika stickers around the town.
“Personally, I will not let that s–t slide in my town and I hope you guys feel the same way,” Mohan wrote on Instagram.
“Racism is alive and growing in Marin county and we need to call it out and condemn it at all costs if we want this to be a safe and peaceful place for people of all skin color, religion, etc.”
Mohan says he doesn’t see himself as a hero but as someone who was trying to do the right thing.
“If I had hit him, I would be the one in jail in cuffs,” he told ABC7 Los Angeles. “It’s just right and wrong. I am not a hero. Just doing what is right.”
Fairfax police, who have not released the man’s identity, say they detained the suspect but later released.
The case was being referred to the Marin County District Attorney for possible hate crime and vandalism charges, according to ABC7.
