Five young leftist protestors were charged with domestic terrorism stemming from a violent protest at the planned site of a police training center.
Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) revealed in a press release that the individuals have been arrested and charged after protesters threw rocks at police cars and attacked EMT workers with rocks and bottles at a fire station near the site.
The string of arrests comes after an attempt to stop the construction of the police training site, which has been dubbed “Cop City,” by camping out in the woods and building entrenchments.
“Task force members used various tactics to arrest individuals who were occupying makeshift treehouses,” the release said, adding that police found “explosive devices, gasoline and road flares” after clearing out the protest site.
Francis Carroll, a 22-year-old from Maine, was charged with criminal trespass, domestic terrorism, aggravated assault, felony obstruction, interference with government property and possession of tools for the commission of a crime.
Nicholas Olson, a 25-year-old from Nebraska, was charged with domestic terrorism, aggravated assault, interference with government property and obstruction.
Serena Hertel, a 25-year-old from California, was charged with criminal trespassing, domestic terrorism, aggravated assault, obstruction and inciting a riot.
Leonardo Vioselle, 20, from Macon, Georgia, was charged with criminal trespass, domestic terrorism, and possession for tools of the crime.
Arieon Robinson, a 22-year-old from Wisconsin, was charged with criminal trespass, obstruction and domestic terrorism.
“They were shooting pepper balls, tear gas at people who were peacefully holding the forest space right now,” one of the protesters at the scene told WAGA-TV. “I think it’s truly abhorrent.”
“The City of Atlanta has leased 381 acres of Weelaunee Forest, stolen Muscogee land, to the Atlanta Police Foundation for a police military facility funded by corporations,” the Stop Cop City organization states on its website. “Cop City will never be built. #StopCopCity #DefendWeelaunee.”
Throw their ass’s in jail and throw away the key. These are the type of morons that give young people a bad name!
Use firearms training on them Horay
Absolutely right, lock there asses up and throw the keys away. They’ve been getting away with this crap forever. Time to start putting them away.
Bet you $5 these are college dropouts. They are doing these things because they believe there are no consequences. Please show them that is NOT true.
You’re quite correct, Mr Page. There must be consequences but because they’re Leftists, they may get away with slaps on the wrists, if that.
No mercy. Shoot if you must. They’re not worth shit anyway.
They need to glue themselves to a cop car.
all staged. Police don’t put handcuffs on perps that loose.
Finally they just might have to pay for their terrorist behavior.
I see that only ONE of these Idiots was from Georgia, therefore TAR & FEATHER the non-residents & ship them home on Rail Cars, then ship the Macon Georgia idiot with them, we don’t need him here in our GEORGIA!
To all. Robert Kennedy Jr’s latest book A LETTER TO LIBERALS is a great read.
A leading Democrat challenges his party to return to liberal values and evidence-based science
Democrats were the party of intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and faith in scientific and liberal empiricism. They once took pride in understanding how to read science critically, exercising healthy skepticism toward notoriously corrupt entities like the drug companies that brought us the opioid crisis, and were outraged by the phenomenon of “agency capture” and the pervasive control of private interests over Congress, the media, and the scientific journals.
During the COVID pandemic, these attitudes have taken a back seat to blind faith in government mandates and countermeasures driven by pharmaceutical companies and captive federal agencies, promoted by corporate media, and cynically exploiting the fears of the American people.
A Letter to Liberals is Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s, challenge to “lockdown liberalism’s” embrace of policies that are an affront to once cherished precepts.
Kennedy invites readers to look at the data in order to answer questions such as:
Did COVID vaccines really save millions and end the pandemic?
Why were the lowest COVID death rates in countries and states that relied on therapeutic drugs, and in countries with the lowest vaccination rates?
Did vaccines prevent infection or transmission as officials promised?
Why do COVID vaccines appear to show “negative efficacy”—making the vaccinated more susceptible to COVID.
Why does the most reliable data suggest that COVID vaccines do not lower the risk of death and hospitalization.
Should government technocrats be partnering with media and social media titans to censor and suppress the questioning of government policies?
And why have so many liberals abandoned fundamental Constitutional principles in their headlong rush to embrace pandemic policies pushed by captured bureaucrats, feckless politicians, a compromised news media, and Big Pharma?
In his November 2021 book The Real Anthony Fauci, which sold over 1,000,000 copies, Kennedy made predictions that have matured from “conspiracy theories” to proven facts. Among these:
Masks Are Ineffective and Dangerous
Social Distancing Was Not Science-Based
School Closures Were Not Science-Based
Lockdowns Were Counterproductive
Vaccinating Children Causes More Harm and Death Than It Averts
Officials Wrongly Used PCR Tests to Justify the Countermeasures
COVID-19 May Have Come from Wuhan Lab
Natural Immunity is Superior to Vaccine Immunity
Kennedy throws down the gauntlet for the kind of vigorous scientific debate that liberals have long stood for and strives to ensure that unbiased honesty and well-researched thought is brought to bear on one of the most important and still unfolding chapters in human history.
Send the right message; 25 years behind bars. That might give them enough time to reflect on their stupidity.
Sure, hope they get some jail time. Who would call if they were being assaulted robbed or someone breaking in their place of living? Call the social service. If they get there in time but when they do these people can talk them out of killing or severely harming them
What a despicable bunch of miscreants to have to share this once great country with. They are absolutely useless doing nothing to enhance any part of a society that once was reknown around the world as the best of the best! Why can’t these miserable souls who are so dissatisfied and mad about whatever they are upset about go to one of the countries that suit their ideals, like Russia, Cuba, China, or any other communist or socialist culture !
Another typical lefty terrorism attack. Just like burn, loot, and murder. I hope they all get life sentences in a prison filled with Aryan nation members
I think that they should serve the same sentencing that the Jan 6 patriots are getting and nothing less!
But…But…But… the land was stolen from the Muscogee!!!
If you go far enough back you can find that every square foot of land on this planet was once occupied by someone or something else!!!
These malleable young minds were “stolen” from the loving, fair-minded children they once were and now they are living in a state of guilt-driven, self-hating delusion that they are heroes!!
They simply do not understand the concept that should they find themselves outside that which they profess to hate, most likely their behavior would be met with a violent end. I
If we don’t put a stop to all of this illegal crap now our children and grand children’s lives will not be worth living. Unless we start making it HURT to be a criminal it will not stop! illegal aliens crossing the borders is a crime, shoplifting is a crime, looting is a crime, assault is a crime, car jacking is a crime , anything that harms others is a crime! We need harder sentencing by judges for crimes committed. An eye for an eye! The sentence should match the crime! Yes, I mean the death sentence is appropriate for murder, mandatory jail time for all crimes, comparabale punishment for injuries!
