The Antifa man who attacked an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention facility has been named and leftists are celebrating.
They are not celebrating the man’s demise, but the fact that he died attempting to “liberate” a detention facility and are encouraging others to do the same.
The man, Willem Van Spronsen, attacked the facility with incendiary devices and set cars ablaze while armed with a rifle.
Police arrived at the scene and shot the Antifa terrorist dead before ehe could do any more damage, as we reported yesterday.
A crazed man attacked an immigration detention center in Tacoma, Washington on Saturday and was shot and killed by police.
The man was armed with incendiary devices and a rifle and was setting vehicles on fire before police arrived, Q13 reported.
An employee at the facility, which operates on behalf of ICE, called police shortly before 4 a.m. saying a man with a rifle was throwing “incendiary devices” at the building, setting vehicles on fire and attempting to ignite a large propane tank, according to Tacoma PD.
Shortly after arriving on scene, officers say they found a suspect with a gun, wearing a satchel and carrying flares.
Police fired on the man in a parking lot across from the facility, striking him fatally. It is unknown how many shots were fired or if the man also shot at police. No officers were injured.
Detectives were still processing the scene late Saturday morning, with several roads in the area of East J Street blocked off.
Tacoma PD confirms four officers were involved in the shooting. All were placed on paid administrative leave, per department policy.
The shooting happened hours after anti-Immigration and Customs Enforcement protesters held what was called a peaceful demonstration.
“Like all Americans, we are concerned about the unprecedented humanitarian crisis at our Southern border; we acknowledge the challenge, but we are appalled by the historically and factually inaccurate portrayal of our facilities,” the group that runs the facility said.
“The outrageous and baseless accusations that have been leveled against our facilities have led to misplaced aggression and a dangerous environment for our employees, whose safety is our top priority. Violence of any kind against our employees and property will not be tolerated.”
“The male attempted to ignite a large propane tank and set out buildings on fire,” The Tacoma Police Department said.
“The male continued throwing lit objects at the buildings and cars,” the statement from the department read but did not give a motive.
And now progressives took to twitter to celebrate the man as a hero and a martyr to their leftists ideology and cause.
Thank you for your bravery #WillemVanSpronsen
