Utah protesters see double standard in prosecutions

The Utah Investigative Journalism Project took a deep dive into prosecutions against demonstrators originating from the summer of protests in 2020. First, they explored allegations of double standards. They found the Salt Lake District Attorney had dropped charges against a militia member who pepper-sprayed a Black Lives Matter protester in the face. After they asked to see the investigative file and why charges were dropped, the office reopened the matter, found numerous other witnesses, and refiled charges. They also pored through bodycam footage and other court documents to present a new angle on the case of a protester who shot a driver that he had feared was going to drive through a group of demonstrators.
