"A man armed with a rifle attacked an immigration detention facility in Washington state early on Saturday, throwing incendiary devices at the building and cars in theInnsley parking lot before dying after police opened fire, authorities said.
An employee at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma reported one vehicle on fire and said the suspect was also attempting to ignite a large propane tank outside the facility, the Tacoma Police Department said in a statement.
When four officers arrived at about 4 a.m., shots were fired and the suspect was later determined to be deceased at the scene.
"Officers noted that in addition to the weapon, he was wearing a satchel and had flares on his person," the statement said, adding that no officers were injured.
"This morning's attack at the ICE detention center in Tacoma was a horrific act of violence that has shaken us all," Washington Governor and 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Jay Inslee wrote on Twitter." Reuters
Governor Inslee of Washington State says he is "shocked and shaken" over this first instance of violence directed at a federal law enforcement facility (DHS/IC). IMO this is only the first instance of violent resistance to federal authority inspired by the utterances of people like Governor Inslee who has stated that if he is elected president he will ask Megan Rapinoe to be Secretary of State. Perhaps she would then be willing to visit the "fucking" White House. A suitable replacement for Hillary Clinton as SECSTATE?
Yesterday a disloyal mob tore down the US flag at another DHS facility in Colorado and raised the Mexican national flag in its stead.
A price will eventually be paid. pl
