Will SPLC Label Itself A “Hate Group” After One Of Its Own Is Arrested & Charged With Storming & Torching Atlanta’s “Cop City”? (Video)

I doubt it.  Hypocrites are like that.  The Southern Poverty Law Center acts as if its hands are clean when it comes to hate, but even in its inception, the SPLC was full of hate.  Now, one of their own attorneys has been arrested and charged for taking part in an Antifa led attack, involving at least 23 people on Atlanta’s “Cop City.”

FOX News reports:

A lawyer for the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was arrested and charged with domestic terrorism over the violence that broke out in Atlanta on Sunday in relation to protests of a planned training facility for police officers in the city, the SPLC has confirmed. 

“An employee at the SPLC was arrested while acting — and identifying — as a legal observer on behalf of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG). The employee is an experienced legal observer, and their arrest is not evidence of any crime, but of heavy-handed law enforcement intervention against protesters,” the SPLC said in a statement on Monday. 

Thomas Webb Jurgens was among the list of 23 suspected domestic terrorists released by the Atlanta Police Department on Monday. Violence broke out in Atlanta on Sunday after protesters of a planned police training facility hurled bricks and Molotov cocktails at officers and set cars on fire. 

The Atlanta Police Department revealed all the suspects are from out of state or from another country except for two, including Jurgens. 

Fox News Digital previously reviewed a LinkedIn account for one Tom Jurgens, earlier on Monday which stated he is a staff attorney for the Southern Poverty Law Center. That LinkedIn account has now apparently been removed.

Fox News Digital also examined The Florida Bar’s profile of Jurgens, which shows he graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2019 and currently works for the Southern Poverty Law Center in Decatur, Georgia. Both the Florida Bar website and State Bar of Georgia website also include Jurgens’ middle name, Webb, which matches the name of the man arrested on Sunday. 

“This is part of a months-long escalation of policing tactics against protesters and observers who oppose the destruction of the Weelaunee Forest to build a police training facility. The SPLC has and will continue to urge de-escalation of violence and police use of force against Black, Brown and Indigenous communities — working in partnership with these communities to dismantle white supremacy, strengthen intersectional movements and advance the human rights of all people,” the SPLC continued in its statement on Monday. 

National Review added:

Jurgens previously served as a legal intern in Dekalb County’s public defender office and as an assistant public defender for the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, according to his LinkedIn profile. A family member of Jurgens confirmed with a local journalist that the lawyer had been charged with domestic terrorism following the violence.

A list of the arrested suspects published by the Atlanta Police Department (APD) on Monday revealed only two were from Georgia. The vast majority hailed from other states. Two of the rioters came from other countries.

The demonstrators “changed into black clothing and entered the construction area and began to throw large rocks, bricks, Molotov cocktails and fireworks at police officers,” the Atlanta Police Department noted in a statement.

Of course, this was not just a “fire started by a single person.”  Video shows something completely different.

Keep in mind that Jurgens is not some guy who didn’t do well early on in “education.”  No, in fact, he is a product of the indoctrination he went through.  As the Daily Mail points out:

Jurgens’ social media profile also details an impressive academic career, which included a term at the prestigious University of Oxford, in England, and a Juris Doctor from the University of Georgia School of Law.
