Utah: Jesse Taggart, 33, was booked into the Utah County Jail on multiple charges, including attempted aggravated murder and aggravated assault after he allegedly fired a pistol into an SUV attempting to escape a mob blocking the road during a BLM protest. Samantha Darling, 27, was also arrested on charges of obstruction of justice and rioting. The 60-year old driver underwent surgery for non-life threatening injuries. BLM and Antifa have been targeting motor vehicles more in recent weeks as inner cities begin to push back against their violence. [This has nothing to do with race or George Floyd.]

Police said two people have been arrested in connection with a shooting that occurred in Provo during Monday night’s protests.

Jesse Taggart, 33, of Salt Lake City, and 27-year-old Samantha Darling, of Ogden, were arrested Tuesday, according to officials with the Provo Police Department.

Sgt. Nisha King with the Provo Police Department said Taggart was booked into the Utah County Jail on multiple charges, including attempted aggravated murder, aggravated assault, rioting, firing a weapon near a highway and criminal mischief.

Darling was booked on charges of obstruction of justice and rioting.

Buffalo’s schools have high rates of failure. In fifth grade, only 18% of students are proficient in math and only 20% proficient in English. One-third fail to graduate from high school. In response, school administrators have not tried to improve academic achievement, but have launched an ant-racist training program.

False Claims Still Being Spread about the Capitol Riot

February 22, 2021 Glen Greenwald 2

The pattern of calling the Capitol incident an armed insurrection is a gross mischaracterization of what actually happened. False narratives are being used to militarize Washington, DC. Both parties are still exploiting it for a new domestic War on Terror. And the FBI is on the prowl for so-called dissidents.
