Antifa Member Charged With Domestic Terrorism Following Atlanta Police Facility Firebombing Found to Be Working For Major Radical Left Organization

Mar 6, 2023 | Political News

On Monday, it was discovered that an individual who was arrested on charges of domestic terrorism following the attack on a police training facility in Atlanta, Georgia was a staff attorney for the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

The individual in question, 28-year-old Tom Jurgens, has worked at the SPLC since September 2021 and worked on their Economic Justice Project, per his LinkedIn page. In addition to his work at the SPLC, the young attorney has worked as an assistant public defender and interned in the Florida U.S. attorney's office.

The SPLC has been known to be utilized by the FBI to target Catholic organizations by classifying them as hate groups, per the DC Enquirer.

As previously reported by the DC Enquirer, members of Antifa descended upon a police training facility on Sunday evening resulting in violent clashes between the police and the Antifa members.

Video of the incident shows multiple construction vehicles and buildings lit aflame as smoke engulfs the area.


Following the incident, the Atlanta Police Department announced that they had detained 35 “agitators” and charged 23 of them with domestic terrorism, as reported by Fox5.

Authorities say that scores of agitators left the South River Music Festival on Sunday evening and headed to the site in black clothing, indicating that the attack on the facility was coordinated.

“This was a very violent attack that occurred, this evening very violent attack,” said Atlanta Police Chief Darin Schierbaum. “Actions such as this will not be tolerated. When you attack law enforcement officers, when you damage equipment – you are breaking the law.”

As police attempted to counteract the terrorists, they were faced with rocks, fireworks, and Molotov cocktails being thrown at them with the police chief describing it as a “coordinated, criminal attack against officers.”

It is no surprise that an employee of the radical left Southern Poverty Law Center has been involved in these attacks on police. Individuals who work for these organizations are radical and this incident further shows their willingness to use violence to further their goals.
