Last night, around 5:30 p.m., Georgia police said a group of violent agitators used the cover of a festival and peaceful protest to coordinate an attack on construction equipment and police officers at a proposed Atlanta Public Safety Training Center. “This is not a protest,” APD officials said at a press conference Sunday night. “This wasn’t about a public training center; this was about anarchy.”
Today, Atlanta PD announce 23 people were arrested and charged with domestic terrorism, including Thomas Jurgens of Georgia who is a staff lawyer for the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The SPLC has long been known as an extremist group of radical leftists operating under the auspices of “anti-hate group” lawyering. The arrest of an SPLC activist/lawyer on domestic terrorism charges affirms the radicalization of the group itself. VIDEO REPORT:
(Atlanta PD) – On March 5, 2023, a group of violent agitators used the cover of a peaceful protest of the proposed Atlanta Public Safety Training Center to conduct a coordinated attack on construction equipment and police officers. They changed into black clothing and entered the construction area and began to throw large rocks, bricks, Molotov cocktails, and fireworks at police officers.
The agitators destroyed multiple pieces of construction equipment by fire and vandalism. Multiple law enforcement agencies deployed to the area and detained several people committing illegal activity. 35 agitators have been detained so far.
The illegal actions of the agitators could have resulted in bodily harm. Officers exercised restraint and used non-lethal enforcement to conduct arrests. (link)
