On Sunday, a group of far-left violent extremists armed with explosives stormed the future site of a law enforcement training facility in Atlanta:
The group is accused of leaving a nearby music festival Sunday evening and heading to the construction site of the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center "to conduct a coordinated attack on construction equipment and police officers."
Authorities noted how the group changed into black clothing and allegedly threw commercial-grade fireworks, Molotov cocktails, large rocks and bricks at police officers.
"What happened last night was not peaceful protest – it was violence. Plain and simple," Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr said in a statement Monday. "We will not tolerate this destruction of property, and we will seek to ensure that those who have engaged in this criminal behavior are held accountable to the fullest extent of the law."
Supporters of the group are trying to paint them as simple "festival-goers":
"Indiscriminate police violence tonight against Stop Cop City festival-goers," the organization tweeted. "Police seem to be lashing out at anyone present at the music festival. Music is not a crime, protest is not a crime. The first amendment doesn't go away when a single person sets a fire."
Video of the incident says otherwise.

Sunday's incident is the latest in recent escalations over the law enforcement facility.
After the 2020 riots, many people thought the extremist groups responsible for them went away, but the really is that many of these violent individuals went underground until the next controversy arose.
While Attorney General Merrick Garland and the Biden Administration are too busy targeting concerned parents and pro-lifers, far-left extremist groups will continue to flourish.
