Georgia Governor Brian Kemp Vows To Arrest More ‘Cop City’ Rioters

Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has vowed to make more arrests of the rioters protesting an Atlanta Police Department training facility, which has been dubbed “Cop City” by its opponents. 

Kemp’s tweet came after an anonymous rioter set fire to a bank in Oregon in solidarity with the rioters recently charged with domestic terrorism in Atlanta’s Intrenchment Creek Park for allegedly attacking police and EMTs in the area.

“Last month, thanks to the hard work and bravery of the GBI; Atlanta Police; DeKalb D.A., Police, and Sheriff’s Office; Attorney General Carr’s Office; and other partners, several criminals illegally occupying the construction site for the planned Atlanta Police Training facility who also used violence against law enforcement were arrested and charged,” Kemp wrote. “Rest assured they will not be the last we will take down as this project moves forward. The only response we will give to intimidation and violence is swift and exact justice.”

“These individuals are members of a broader network of militant activists who have committed similar acts of domestic terrorism and intimidation across the country with no regard for the people or communities impacted by their crimes,” he added. “Make no mistake, if ANY crimes of this sort are committed in Georgia, we will bring the full force of state and local law enforcement down on those trying to bring about a radical agenda through violent means. Domestic terrorism will NOT be tolerated in our state, and we will not hesitate, we will not rest, we will not waver in ending their activities and prosecuting them to the fullest extent of the law.”
