Armed Activist Hurling Molotov Cocktails at ICE Facility Shot Killed by Police…

This is an example of what happens when politicians and far-left activists push a false narrative that ICE facilities are comparable to concentration camps.

An obviously unstable man armed with a rifle attempts to blow up an ICE detention facility in Tacoma Washington following protests hours earlier.

WASHINGTON – An armed man was fatally shot early Saturday during a confrontation with police after he hurled incendiary devices at a Washington state immigration detention center, Tacoma police said.

The shooting occurred about 4 a.m. local time outside the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Northwest Detention Center, where the gunman attempted to set the building and parked cars on fire, according to police spokeswoman Loretta Cool.

Authorities did not immediately identify the gunman, saying in the statement the “medical examiner will release the identity of the victim when it is appropriate.”

The assault on the privately-run immigrant detention facility came amid protests over ICE plans to begin the previously postponed raids across the country on Sunday. The goal is the arrest of thousands of migrant families who already have court orders to be removed, according to US officials.

A peaceful rally against the raids at the Tacoma detention center had ended about six hours before the shooting, Cool said.  […]

Police said the man set a vehicle ablaze in the center’s parking lot and attempted to ignite a propane tank with a flare to set the building on fire. Officers called out to the man and shots were fired, according to a police statement. It’s not known whether the man fired on the officers, Cool said.

The gunman died at the scene; four officers involved in the shooting were placed on administrative leave per department policy. The incident is under investigation. (more)


This death is directly attributable to the dangerous incitement by politicians and immigration activists.  However, watch the media run cover for those who advocated for exactly this type of Antifa resistance violence.

        I’m thinking it ought to earn them a bullet similar to the one which took out the Antifa a-hole at the ICE detention facility in Tacoma. I think if they start taking out more and more Antifa on a permanent basis then the world will be a little less violent and frankly who cares if these scum live any longer than necessary. My only hope is that some of the Antifa scum will be shot dead in the street like the rabid dogs they are and hopefully in front of their family members and friends. Bleed baby bleed. I know it is not nice but then neither was the attack on Ngo.

          On the plus side of this end result, we will never have to worry about hearing from this bastard again.

          Indeed, methinks such a final end result may make at least a few Antifa EB’s (Evil Bastards) seriously ponder RETIRING from the activist thug tactics.

    So a crazed terrorist tried to kill detainees? How was that supposed to help them?


    • Rhoda R says:

      The assumption that anyone on the left actually cares about the individual detainees – or any other the invading people – is not and never has been supported by any of their actions. Oh the left cries and wails about the poor people but their ACTIONS are proof of their real level of concern.

    This confirmed antifa/anarchist nut apparently has a manifesto according to the Seattle Times.

    “Deb Bartley, a friend of Van Spronsen’s for about 20 years, described him as an anarchist and anti-fascist, and she believes his attack on the detention center was intended to provoke a fatal conflict.

    “He was ready to end it,” Bartley said. “I think this was a suicide. But then he was able to kind of do it in a way that spoke to his political beliefs … I know he went down there knowing he was going to die.”

    She and other friends of Van Spronsen got letters in the mail “just saying goodbye.” He also wrote what she referred to as a manifesto, which she declined to discuss in detail but predicted would be taken by authorities.”

    OCTOBER 1, 2017

    A straight, white, American male, radicalized by American media, was incited to commit the worst mass shooting in US history.

    No conspiracy theory needed.

    That’s all it was.

    dawg has been screaming this since October 2, 2017.

    The Paddock shooting itself was a copycat event of the Hodgkinson baseball practice shooting from a few months prior.

    Now this.


    • Joemama says:

      Paddock didn’t do the shooting. He didn’t have any machine guns. The rate of fire of the guns night was 10 round/sec (easily confirmed by looking at the audio tracks of dozens of videos). An AR-15 with the longest gas tube available, shoots at 14 rounds/sec.

      Machine guns shoot at 10 rounds/sec. The Royal Saudi Airforce was training at Edwards Airforce Base in the weeks before the shooting and were stay at the 4 Seasons Hotel, which is the top 6 or so stories of the Mandalay Bay Hotel (they apparently don’t like the barracks at Edwards).

      The were training with a bunch of Boeing attack helicopters, equipped with machine guns, that they had just take delivery of.

      Look at the videos. There were many helicopters in the the sky all around the killing field that night. They were flying in areas off limits to helicopters.

      PDJT promised that the American public will know the truth of what happened that night in due time.


      • dawg says:

        Wrong, wrong, wrong.

        “Machine guns”? Anyone that uses the term “machine guns” automatically loses all credibility.

        Paddock had semi-auto ARs, 5.56 and .308, equipped with bump stocks.

        Im not sure exactly what your point is, but if you are suggesting that the Royal Saudi Air Force killed all those people from helicopters, you are nuts.


        • Joemama says:

          I don’t feel like looking up the exact model. I forget what machine gun was likely used. I know the difference between a semi-automatic with a bump stock & a fully automatic belt fed military weapon, i.e. colloquially “a machine gun.”

          I am suggesting that it is a distinct possibility that the Saudi Airforce did most of the shooting. Bump stock equipped semi-automatic rifles were NOT used for most of the shooting. The rate of fire was wrong. That is indisputable.

          Why was it so important for the FBI to try to gather every single bullet that had been shot? They cordoned off the area and had dozens, if not hundreds of FBI agents scanning with metal detectors and digging bullets out of the ground on their hands and knees.

          I suspect because the calibers you listed were not the caliber of the bullets they were gathering and for whatever reason, they didn’t want the public digging them up and noticing the discrepancy.

          Now way in hades did Paddock do the shooting alone. He may have shot a few rounds, such as the tracer rounds that hit the jet fuel tank, but the heavy shooting was done by other people.


          • OldParatrooper says:

            I’m pretty familiar with Army helicopters and don’t know of any model that uses a 5.56mm or 7.62mm/.308 cal gun of any sort. The chain gun is a 30mm, and it also carries 70mm rockets and other missiles.


          • dawg says:

            I just told you what guns were used.

            It is absolutely not “indisputable that the rate of fire was wrong”.

            The rate of fire of bumpstop-equipped semi-auto rifles can vary depending on the amount of pressure exerted on the stock by the user.

            There is absolutely nothing to suggest that Paddock did not do the shooting.

            Everything to suggest he did.

            Everything to suggest he did it because he was radicalized by the media.

            He was a Hodgkinson copycat.

    James Hodgkinson (Scalise, etc.) Was 66 when he went off the rails and took a gun to that baseball field. I attribute that also to media incitement, remember Shakespeare in the Park? Griffin’s severed head?

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Van Spronsen felt he needed to do something and that his time of glory was now.

    He’s not just a crazy old man he came of age when his contemporaries were going up against the government, Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bill Ayres were names he knew. I’m not saying he was connected to them in some deep plot. No his crazy was unleashed by others around him incited by the media and politicians.
