Armed Antifa man dies in Washington State after threatening police at illegal alien detention center

Antifa terrorist Van Spronsen taken out by law enforcement

Funny, on Sunday afternoon I searched for the perp’s name on CNN, MSNBC, HuffPo, CBS News, Slate, and Vox News and found ZERO stories related to this dead Antifa goon. Imagine my surprise…

From BBC: An armed man who attacked an immigration detention centre in the US city of Tacoma died after police officers opened fire, authorities say.

Police said they received reports that a man, armed with a rifle, was throwing “incendiary devices” at the Northwest Detention Center early on Saturday.

He was later identified as Willem Van Spronsen, who was reportedly involved in an earlier protest at the centre.

The shooting came a day before a major deportation operation was due to begin. The raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials will target hundreds of immigrant families across 10 cities who have recently been ordered deported but have not yet left the country. It marks the latest move in US President Donald Trump’s crackdown on migration.

Sunday’s raids are not expected to affect Tacoma.

A police spokesperson told Reuters the incident on Saturday took place several hours after a peaceful rally outside the Washington state facility protesting against immigrant detentions.

In a statement, the Tacoma Police Department said the four police officers involved in the shooting had been placed on administrative leave, as is standard procedure in such cases, and an investigation into the incident was underway.

Police arrived at the privately run Northwest Detention Center at about 04:00 local time (11:00 GMT) after receiving reports that a man was throwing “incendiary devices” at the facility and at vehicles in the car park, the statement said. The man allegedly set a vehicle on fire and attempted to ignite a propane tank and set buildings on fire.

Officers said he was wearing a satchel and carrying flares.

Tacoma Police Department confirmed that all four officers opened fire on the suspect, while it remains unclear if he fired at the officers. He was found shot dead at the scene. A police official said it could not yet be confirmed who was responsible for his death.

Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office identified Van Spronsen, a man in his late 60s, on Saturday night, according to local media reports.

He was reportedly accused of assaulting a police officer during a protest at the same centre last year.

Court documents cited by local media outlets said he wrapped his arms around the officer’s neck and shoulders, as the officer was trying to detain another protester. After handcuffing him, police found that he had a collapsible baton and folding knife in his pocket.

A friend of Van Spronsen described him to the Seattle Times newspaper as an anarchist and anti-fascist. She said she believes he planned to provoke a fatal conflict with his actions on Saturday. “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,” she said.

Northwest Detention Centre holds migrants pending deportation proceedings and has also held immigration-seeking parents separated from their children, the Associated Press reports.

GEO Group, which runs the facility, told the Associated Press that “baseless accusations” about how detainees are treated there “have led to misplaced aggression and a dangerous environment for our employees, whose safety is our top priority”.

How’s that gun control working in Washington State since new laws were passed?

Washington State has some strict gun control laws. Presidential candidate demorat Gov. Jay Inslee signed a bunch more of new laws on May 7 saying, “Our state is a leader on #gunsafety but more work is needed to protect our students & the people of WA. That’s why today I am so happy to sign bills that ban untraceable ghost guns, keep guns away from our most vulnerable Washingtonians & improve gun safety overall.”

Some of their gun control laws include the following (from Wikipedia):

Statutory law prohibits firearms to persons under 21 years of age.

Police may temporarily seize guns from people a judge deems a threat to themselves or others.

In November 2018, voters approved I-1639 that includes increased background checks, firearm safety training, waiting periods before semiautomatic assault rifles may be purchased or delivered, and require certain secured firearm storage or trigger-locks, and criminalize certain firearm storage if it results in unauthorized use.

So of course, shootings must be down since the new laws were enacted, right? Wrong.

In the last month, Seattle has had more than one reported shooting a day somewhere in the city; two of those incidents resulted in death.

Here’s a summary of recent shootings in Washington:

Deadly shooting in Seattle fourth shooting scene across Puget Sound area in 12 hours (May 29)

Two more shootings after fatal Central District incident in Seattle (May 11)
