In a posting on the anti-establishment site Indymedia, the group said they staged the attack, because “civil justice” is the “laundering machine of capitalism.” They added that “civil justice is like a snake – only biting on the barefoot ones.”
The court; which came under attack three days before Christmas, is where some of the auctions of foreclosed homes are taking place, and has been a scene of several protests up until now.
The attack was called in 40 minutes before it occurred. It destroyed the entrance of the court. The guard; who was shot at with a machine gun by the fleeing bombers, escaped injury.
