Trantifa militant dances into Atlanta court to face RICO charges over 'Stop Cop City' violence

In addition to the RICO charges, the 30-year-old is also one of nearly two dozen militants arrested and charged with domestic terrorism.

On Monday, dozens of Antifa-linked militants made their way to the Fulton County courthouse to be arraigned on Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) charges filed against them earlier this year in connection with the violent actions to "Stop Cop City," the name given by militants to the new police training facility under construction just outside the Georgia capital.

While most walked, one suspect was spotted dancing gleefully into the courthouse to face the judge. James Marsicano, a trans-identified male who goes by Jamie, pranced towards the courthouse while an entourage of activist supporters followed close behind.

As the Daily Mail reports, Marsicano wore a black shirt and skirt with a grey cardigan and red scarf as he sashayed his way to the entrance. The activists held up signs calling for all the charges to be dropped. 

In addition to the RICO charges,the 30-year-old is also one of nearly two dozen activists arrested and charged with domestic terrorism in March after allegedly taking part in an attack that saw rocks, bricks, Molotov cocktails, and fireworks launched at police officers on the construction site.

"We contend the 61 defendants together have conspired against the construction of the Atlanta public safety training center by conducting, coordinating, and organizing acts of violence, intimidation, and property destruction," Georgia Attorney General Christopher Carr said. "As this indictment shows, looking the other way when violence occurs is not an option in Georgia."

He pointed out that the majority of arrestees were from other parts of the country, warning, "if you come to our state and shoot a police officer, throw Molotov cocktails at law enforcement, set fire to police vehicles, damage construction equipment, vandalize private homes and businesses, and terrorize their occupants, you can and will be held accountable."

According to Marsicano's profile in the far-left activist magazine The Funambulist, he is "a white trans femme organizer in Charlotte who is fiercely committed to supporting Black trans femmes, prison abolition, and destabilizing all forms of oppression." Marsicano is also a member of the National Lawyers Guild.

While Marsicano presents himself as being a committed antifascist, it has been revealed that his father, Michael, is a recently retired millionaire once named one of the 50 most powerful people in Charlotte. He served on the Duke University Board of Trustees, and has been honored for the benefits his work has brought to North Carolina.
