Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that One of the suspects arrested at the Atlanta attack by #Antifa is Francis Carroll, who was out on bail for domestic terrorism from an arrest last month at the autonomous zone.
He’s been charged w/terrorism again, arson & more. He’s from a multi-millionaire Maine family.
Dickens, a Democrat, pushed back on CBS host Margaret Brennan during an appearance on “Face The Nation” Sunday morning. During a panel slated to discuss crime and violence plaguing American cities, Brennan asked for an update on the protests in response to the death of 26-year-old environmental activist Manuel Esteban Paez Teran.
Teran reportedly went by the name Tortuguita, identified as nonbinary, and used they/it pronouns. Authorities said Teran first shot and wounded a state trooper tasked with clearing protesters from the construction site of a new public safety training center.
Teran was allegedly killed by Georgia State Patrol officers who returned fire, and Brennan noted how the protests in downtown Atlanta Saturday came in response to police saying body-camera footage of the shooting doesn’t exist. Dickens, instead, emphasized how the peaceful protests devolved into violence, noting how individuals “had explosives,” “burned down a police car” and “broke windows at businesses.”
“When you say people from out of town, they’re carrying explosives. Is this an organized movement here?” Brennan responded, noting how Atlanta newspapers cite possible links to “environmental activists, radical anarchist and black revolutionaries.” Brennan also cited claims from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., blaming Democrats for condoning Black Lives Matter and Antifa. While Dickens declined to respond to Greene’s remarks, he agreed the riots constitute “domestic terrorism.”
“The crimes range from violence to domestic terrorism to assault battery and some other things,” the mayor said. “But yes, it is violent when someone turns to burn down a police car or breakout windows or have explosives on them. I don’t get into the names. I don’t know all the organizations. I’ll let y’all decide who did it. I just know they’re arrested. And if they come into Atlanta, again, to wreak havoc, they will be arrested again.”
“But do you believe your city is being targeted by organized groups?” Brennan pressed.
