Terrorist Attack On Police Facility In Atlanta, SPLC Lawyer Allegedly Involved

On Sunday night, almost two dozen individuals were arrested in Atlanta on domestic terrorism charges after a violent ambush on police officers earlier that night. The attack continues a pattern of violence committed by rioters protesting the construction of an Atlanta Police Department training facility, which had been dubbed “Cop City” by its opponents. 

As explained by The Post Millennial, “Around 5:30 on March 5, about a hundred militants broke off from a protest in the South River Forest area southeast of Atlanta to launch an attack on nearby police. The officers were guarding a construction site of a future first responder training facility that members of the extremist group seek to stop. Their violence has escalated in recent months, leading to a deadly shooting in January and 19 of their members being charged with terror offenses so far.”

“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 Atlanta Police said in a statement about the attack. 

One of the alleged domestic terrorists is a staff attorney for the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has ironically been commonly used by the FBI as a source for domestic terrorism.
