The guy who was killed while attacking the ICE detention center in Tacoma?
Suspicion Confirmed – Antifagoon.
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.
It’s not the first time the protester has had a confrontation with police.
KOMO News was there when Spronsen was in court last year after he was arrested for assaulting a police officer during a chaotic protest at the Northwest Detention Center.
According to court documents, Van Spronsen jumped on the back of an officer and “Van Spronsen wrapped both of his arms around Officer Robillard’s neck and shoulders,” while the officer was trying to detain a protester.
