Three more people have been arrested and charged with crimes related to the site of an under-construction police training facility in Atlanta, Georgia, which has been the site of many violent riots by far-left domestic terrorists.
As reported by The Daily Caller, the three who were arrested are Marlon Scott Kautz, Adele Maclean, and Savannah Patterson. While they are not accused of actual violence at the site itself, they have been charged with money laundering and charity fraud over a donation fund that they started for the purpose of providing financial assistance to rioters who have been arrested at the site and elsewhere in Atlanta.
They created the Atlanta Solidarity Fund (ASF), which has offered to pay for bail, jail support, and access to legal representation for far-left rioters who have been arrested, including those arrested at the future site of the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center. The multi-million-dollar, which will train future police officers in the Atlanta Police Department, has been labeled “Cop City” by the rioters.
Several months ago, after multiple waves of attacks against the construction site, 23 rioters were arrested and charged with domestic terrorism. They have been accused of throwing rocks, bricks, and fireworks at the site. Back in January, seven were arrested and charged with domestic terrorism after riots broke out in response to the death of Manuel Teran, a rioter who shot and wounded an Atlanta police officer before being killed by return fire from the police.
Kautz, one of the three who was arrested for financial fraud, had previously said that the public should not accept the official story regarding Teran’s death, even despite overwhelming evidence posthumously proving his guilt. He also ordered his fellow rioters “to not allow this repression to give you fear, and to keep doing what you’re doing.”
Construction and development of the site continues despite the violence, with the Atlanta City Council expected to vote next week to more than double funding for the training center, increasing it from $31 million to $71 million.
