Thousands of Washington residents are without power resulting from area substations vandalized and burglarized on Christmas Day.
According to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, a call was received at 5:26 a.m. reporting a burglary at the Tacoma Public Utilities (TPU) substation.
This latest attack comes after a number of them occurred over a six month period. Back in January, the Department of Homeland Security warned that since 2020 domestic extremists have been developing “credible, specific plans” to attack electricity infrastructure.
It will be interesting who the extremists are the Department of Homeland Security is speaking of. No doubt they will somehow try to blame Trump supporters or white supremacists. No doubt this is the handiwork of eco-terrorist groups like EarthFirst! or Extinction Rebellion.
