An attorney with the Southern Poverty Law Center is among the 23 protesters who have been charged with domestic terrorism after they allegedly hurled Molotov cocktails and fireworks at a future Atlanta police training facility, cops said Monday.
Thomas Webb Jurgens, 28, was one of the nearly two dozen people detained on Sunday in what police have described as a “coordinated attack” on the still-under-construction Atlanta Public Safety Training Center—dubbed “Cop City.”
Jurgens is a staff attorney with SPLC—the left-leaning, anti-hate group, according to the State Bar of Georgia and his since-deleted LinkedIn page.
Of the 23 people slapped with domestic terrorism charges over the violent protest, Jurgens and only one other man, Jack Beaman, hail from the state of Georgia.
What we saw repeatedly during the George Floyd Memorial Mostly Peaceful Protests of 2020 is that the first night of rioting would be black kids looting local stores. But then on second night, white Antifa riot aficionados would pour in from around the country and do more serious damage, such as arson.
Police said the majority of those arrested are from other parts of the US—as well as France and Canada.
… The SPLC didn’t immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment in the wake of Jurgens’ arrest.
… The ordeal unfolded when the protesters started throwing Molotov cocktails, fireworks, rocks and bricks at officers during the demonstration.
Atlanta Police Chief Darin Schierbaum described the flare-up as “coordinated” and said multiple pieces of construction equipment were set on fire at the 85-acre site outside of the city.
I’ve been calling the SPLC “America’s most lucrative hate group” for decades.
