One of those peaceful Antifa-oriented “journalists” terrorizing Arkansas was actually charged with a crime. Along with three other young anarchists, Renea Baek Goddard was “formally charged last week in connection with the firebombings of police vehicles” during Black Lives Matter riots over the summer.
Police upset after cruisers torched
It took an incident where cop cars were torched before authorities in Little Rock got motivated enough to arrest a liberal Democrat.
They decided to put cuffs on 22-year-old Renea Baek Goddard after her crew was identified in connection with “a group that tossed Molotov cocktails toward Little Rock Police Department vehicles on Aug. 25 as a large crowd demonstrated outside the department’s 12 Street Substation.”
It took months, along with assistance from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to arrest the four suspects. They were finally able to report success to the public on December 17. “Today’s arrests send a message that violence targeted toward law enforcement will not be tolerated.”
Burning down a car dealership is alright but don’t even think about burning a cop car. “Breaking into a police compound and firebombing a police vehicle with a homemade explosive device is clearly not a peaceful protest.”
This wasn’t the first time that local police had Goddard in custody. In June, she was arrested for “obstructing government operations in violation of a local curfew during a BLM protest.” She’s not expected to go to court on that one until next year.

On the public payroll
In her spare time, when not setting police cars on fire, Goddard gets paid by the taxpayer for spewing liberal lies. She’s paid by KUAR Public Radio in Little Rock, contributes to the LGBTQ news outlet Autostraddle.
In the past, she interned for Arkansas Public Media after getting her liberal indoctrination from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
She likes to post pictures of herself on social media. One image depicts her “in a nun-like outfit with a see-through top and slit-open leather skirt.” In one of her articles which published in Truthout back in 2019, Goddard wrote, “as more and more white supremacists try to rebrand themselves, journalists have a responsibility to be vigilant.
There needs to be an end to this farce that neutrality necessitates taking a centrist position.” She decided to take a stand by tossing bottles of gasoline with a burning rag for a stopper under a few police cars. That is definitely not “neutral.”
Her three cohorts have also been linked to anarchist activism. Brittany Dawn Jeffrey was kind of a “den mother.” the 31-year-old is accused of “allowing activists to use her home for assembling incendiary devices.”
She was caught on video resisting arrest when she refused to “get out of her car when police approached her.” Also charged with the firebombings are Aline Espinosa-Villegas, 24 and described as “a transsexual Chilean national,” and Emily Nowlin, age 27. All four defendants made their first court appearance December 17, in Little Rock.
