Southern Poverty Law Center Lawyer Charged over Antifa Terrorist Attack in Atlanta

One of the Antifa members charged in Sunday’s domestic terrorism attack on a police facility in Atlanta is a staff lawyer for the leftist Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

SPLC is a leftist civil rights group well known for smearing conservative and Christian nonprofits as “hate groups.”

According to DeKalb County Jail records, SPLC lawyer Tom Jurgens was charged with one count of domestic terrorism.

Jurgens is one of the dozens of individuals that were arrested and charged over the attack.

The attack was launched under the false pretense of peaceful protest.

After the demonstration started, Antifa militants changed into black clothing and started a violent riot.

Agitators threw rocks Molotov cocktails and fireworks at police and construction equipment at the future site of an Atlanta training facility.

According to a LinkedIn profile, Jurgens graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law and took a job with SPLC in 2021.

The group that is linked to Antifa engaged in an anti-police protest that quickly turned into a violent riot.

The rioters claimed the new training center would propagate militarized policing and harm the environment.

They labeled the new facility “Cop City.”

In a statement issued by Atlanta Police, “Officer exercised restraint and used non-lethal enforcement to conduct arrests.”

35 individuals were detained and “multiple pieces of construction equipment” were destroyed by “fire and vandalism.”
