Washington: Police Kill Antifa Extremist Attacking Immigrant Detention Facility

Police Kill Antifa Extremist Attacking Immigrant Detention Facility

By Ivan Pentchoukov

Police in Tacoma, Washington, killed an armed Antifa extremist early on July 13 after the man threw firebombs at an immigrant detention building and cars in the parking lot and attempted to blow up a large propane tank.

The man succeeded in setting one car on fire before officers responded at 4 a.m. and gunned him down, according to the Tacoma Police Department. The man was armed with a rifle and wore a satchel with flares, the police said. No officers were hurt in the encounter.

“This morning’s attack at the ICE detention center in Tacoma was a horrific act of violence that has shaken us all,” Washington Gov. Jay Inslee wrote on Twitter.

Inslee, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, quickly turned to politics, attacking President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, but added: “Violence is not acceptable. We must be better and seek non-violent ways of pursuing the better world we want, as many groups are doing.”
