Rhode Island Public School Teacher Arrested, Charged With Vandalizing Christopher Columbus Statue

These are the people educating your children.

A Rhode Island social studies teacher has been one of the three suspects arrested in the vandalism of a Christopher Columbus statue in Providence.

Derrick Garforth has been listed as a social studies teacher for Jenks Middle School in Pawtucket. He was arrested early Saturday morning for what appears to have been a feeble vandalism attempt on a statue of the Italian explorer in Providence’s Columbus Square.

Providence Police describe apprehending Garforth after seeing a man and a woman dash towards the Columbus statue and coat it with white and purple paint. They followed the two vandals, later arrested Garforth, Charlotte Wittingham, and Mackenzie Innis, the latter of whom was driving a getaway car for the two. The monument had been boarded up by authorities to prevent the exact kind of cultural vandalism Garforth and his accomplices are alleged to have attempted, and police had been watching the monument as left-wing rioters and looters attacked Christopher Columbus statues across the country.

Garforth has been placed on leave by the Pawtucket School Department pending an investigation. The 34-year old is being charged with desecration of a monument, a felony in Rhode Island.

It’s almost doubtless that Garfoth had used his position as a teacher to indoctrinate young children against the memorization of historic figures such as Columbus, who is one of the most significant people ever to live.

Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds

Weren’t they peaceful protestors?

Published

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.

Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”

Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”

We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover, demanded Governor Walz. We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.

The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.

In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
