On Sunday night, the site of the future police training center in Atlanta was put under lockdown after an attack on the facility by Antifa militants.
Newly-released footage shows how last night’s terror attack occurred. Antifa extremists tossed fireworks, Molotov cocktails, rocks, and bricks at the police officers and the construction equipment.
Here’s another angle showing the domestic extremists ambushing the officers. The violent assault forced the cops to retreat.

Fox 5 Atlanta says no officers were injured, although multiple Antifa militants were treated for minor injuries.
The APD released a statement last night announcing the arrests of 35 agitators while warning of future attacks:
On March 5, 2023, a group of violent agitators used the cover of a peaceful protest of the proposed Atlanta Public Safety Training Center to conduct a coordinated attack on construction equipment and police officers. They changed into black clothing and entered the construction area and began to throw large rocks, bricks, Molotov cocktails, and fireworks at police officers.
The agitators destroyed multiple pieces of construction equipment by fire and vandalism. Multiple law enforcement agencies deployed to the area and detained several people committing illegal activity. 35 agitators have been detained so far.
The illegal actions of the agitators could have resulted in bodily harm. Officers exercised restraint and used non-lethal enforcement to conduct arrests.
With protests planned for the coming days, the Atlanta Police Department, in collaboration with law enforcement partners, have a multi-layered strategy that includes reaction and arrest.
The Atlanta Police Department asks for this week’s protests to remain peaceful.
The Post Millennial’s Andy Ngo reports that the entire attack was well-organized, and the group is now even fundraising off of its violence.
