Former Utah police detective pleads guilty to charge from Capitol insurrectionA retired Salt Lake City police detective pleaded guilty Friday to a misdemeanor stemming from the riot at the U.S. Capitol. OK, he was stupid for being there but quit using the word 'insurrection' as that is NOT what he was charged with.

Taylor hinted that Rep. Kera Birkeland, R-Morgan, would be proposing legislation to make some “simple changes” to “protect women and save the lives of unborn babies.” She urged attendees to call their representatives and ask them to support Birkeland’s legislation and said only a “small number” of state legislators are willing to take on pro-life legislation.

Now more than ever, like I said, we really need all hands on deck.”
