The wave of crime and anti-police sentiment that was spawned in the summer of 2020 has given rise to organized movements participating in violence against law enforcement officers in America. Now, 23 people have been arrested and charged with domestic terrorism for attacking the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center. Videos of the clash show a mob attacking the facility.

Fox 5 Atlanta reports that 23 of the attackers have been arrested and charged with domestic terrorism.
Police have charged 23 people with domestic terrorism after a violent clash between police and protesters at the site of Atlanta’s future Public Safety Training Facility, nicknamed “Cop City” by critics.
Sunday night, police say the DeKalb County construction site was on lockdown as crews worked to put out flames around the area.
In total, the Atlanta Police Department said 35 “agitators” have been detained.
Officials say around 5:30 p.m. Sunday, dozens of protesters left the nearby South River Music Festival, changed into black clothing, and entered the site of the controversial proposed police training center.
“This was a very violent attack that occurred, this evening very violent attack,” Atlanta Police Chief Darin Schierbaum said near the scene.
A video released by Atlanta Police shows what appears to be fireworks aimed at officers. In the same video, you can see items including rocks and Molotov cocktails being thrown by protestors in the direction of police, a tipped-over vehicle that later became engulfed in flames, and protestors attempting to set other pieces of construction equipment on fire.
Schierbaum called the incident a “coordinated, criminal attack against officers.”
