On Sunday night, a violent riot broke out in Atlanta. Aerial footage shows a large group of people heading toward the firehouse, police academy, and EMS academy.
The Atlanta PD has put out a video showing what looks like the aftermath of a terrorist attack in the United States. In the distance, you can see a large group of people walking. Then, the camera cuts to several very close-up shots.
At 4 minutes and 12 seconds, more aerial footage shows that a smaller group of people are changing clothes in the forest.
Authorities at the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center, also known as “Cop City,” said that a group of black-clad “violent agitators” attacked the building during a protest.
Several construction vehicles and tools were destroyed by the fire. The police department released several videos showing what happened before the fire, including people throwing things, the arrival of police, the officers narrowly missing being hit by what looked like fireworks, and the fire itself.
Eleven Alive, the local NBC station, said that the damage would cost about $150,000 to fix.
No one was hurt, and at least 35 people were arrested, according to reports. At the moment, 23 people are in jail on suspicion of domestic terrorism, which can get you up to 35 years in prison. Only two of the people on the police list are actually from Georgia. The rest come from different places in the US, Canada, and France.
One of the people arrested worked for the SPLC, which is very proud of how far to the left it is.
A statement from the SPLC says that an employee was held “I introduced myself as a member of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG). Workers who know the law know that their arrest doesn’t prove they did anything wrong; it only shows that police used too much force against legal protesters.
According to Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp’s statement, “domestic terrorism will NOT be tolerated in this state,” and the state will not stop until those who use violence and intimidation to achieve an extremist goal are brought to full justice.”
