A far-left journalist from Arkansas is among four suspects who have been formally charged in connection with the firebombings of police cars during Black Lives Matter protests last summer.  

Renea Baek Goddard, 22, was part of a group of people that are alleged to have thrown Molotov cocktails at Little Rock Police Department cars on August 25.

After an investigation by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives lasting several months, authorities alleged Goddard was part of a group that broke into a police compound and then fire bombed a police vehicle.

'Breaking into a police compound and firebombing a police vehicle with a homemade explosive device is clearly not a peaceful protest,' U.S. Attorney Cody Hiland said in a statement.

'Today's arrests send a message that violence targeted toward law enforcement will not be tolerated.'

Goddard worked for KUAR Public Radio in Little Rock after attending the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. 

'As more and more white supremacists try to rebrand themselves, journalists have a responsibility to be vigilant,' Goddard wrote in 2019 on a news site Truthout. 

'There needs to be an end to this farce that neutrality necessitates taking a centrist position,' she said.

 Three other suspects were charged last week and have also been linked to far-left activism, according to a report by The Post-Millennial.

Brittany Dawn Jeffrey, 31, is accused of allowing activists to use her home for assembling incendiary devices, and then live-streamed her arrest on Facebook.

Jeffrey's criminal record includes arrests including criminal trespass as Black Lives Matter activists demonstrated at a local business when a former employee was accused of racism.

Espinosa-Villegas is described by the newspaper as 'a transsexual Chilean national.'

Espinosa-Villegas has been held in the Pulaski County Detention Center without bail in connection with federal charges.

Nowlin faces charges of misdemeanor disorderly conduct for joining others in blocking traffic during a June 2 protest as well as the police care fire bombing case.
