Mostly unnoticed beneath the storm of idiotic presidential tweets and the Democratic struggle session over exactly how minority legislators should behave, a 69-year-old man conducted a terrorist attack on a government facility this weekend.

Willem Van Spronsen, armed with a rifle and “incendiary devices”, set a car on fire and was shot and killed by police officers who were responding to the scene. He also attempted to light a propane tank on fire, which “could have resulted in the mass murder of staff and detainees housed at the facility had he been successful,” according to Shawn Fallah, head of the ICE Office of Professional Responsibility.

Does this event "not count" because only the attacker was killed? Is this dismissed as an example of leftist violence because the attempted murder of ICE agents was thwarted?

Body Count is 31 to 1. (El Paso/Dayton over Ice Attack)

In football terms, that is four touchdowns + a field goal against 1 extra point.

If it bleeds, it leads. Not enough blood.

I think every sane person just stays away from that part of the US.

Incompetent Mayor Ted Wheeler and inept police force mean that Portland is now virtually lawless and Seattle also has Antifa problems.

So this is not a big surprise to anyone, just as it wasn't a surprise that police had water thrown over them in Bill de Blasio's NYC or that London has problems under Sadiq Khan.

The sooner these idiots are voted out of office the better.

ICE released video captured of the attack by an Antifa's goon that was shot dead by police.
