Approximately 568 of those defendants have been charged with firearms offenses, while approximately 411 have been charged with drug-related crimes and approximately 247 for homicide.
According to the statement, over 2,000 firearms have been seized; and nearly 22 kilos of heroin, more than 15 kilos of fentanyl (enough to deliver more than 7.5 million fatal doses), more than 130 kilos of methamphetamine, more than 28 kilos of cocaine, and more than $7.3 million in drug proceeds have been seized.
Operation Legend has reached into states such as New Mexico, Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Indiana.
During a roundtable discussion with law enforcement Wednesday morning, Barr applauded the crime-fighting effort in St. Louis where Operation Legend began in August, and the city has seen a 49% decrease in homicides and rapes have decreased 38% since then, according to Barr.
The operation was named after LeGend Taliferro, a 4-year-old who was shot and killed June 29 while sleeping in his Kansas City home.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) launched "Operation Legend" with local and federal law enforcement to target violent mostly peaceful crimes, which includes investigating LeGend Taliferro’s case in this operation.
According to The Daily Caller, this year, Kansas City has seen a 40 percent increase of homicides compared to last year. President Donald Trump ...His ancestors didn't own any slaves... promised to protect cities that have high rates of violent mostly peaceful crimes and stated "Help is on its way." Attorney General William P. Barr announced the start of the operation on July 8, 2020.

During the invasions of Alexander the Great, the area was known as Lampaka, wich is apparently Olde Macedonian for Laghman.The city of Mihtarlam serves as the bucolic capital of the province. The population is half Pashtun, the remainder Tadjik and Pashai. It had a repution for great wealth until it was conquered in the tenth century by Abu Mansur Sabuktigin.
He conquered it and set fire to the places in its vicinity which were inhabited by infidels, and demolishing the idol-temples, he established Islam in them, He marched and captured other cities and killed the polluted wretches, destroying the idolatrous and gratifying the Musulmans.

Police shot the attacker dead minutes after he murdered 47-year-old history teacher Samuel Paty on Friday.
Four relatives of the attacker, including a minor, were detained in the immediate aftermath of the attack in the middle-class suburb of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, according to police sources.
Five more were detained overnight, among them two parents of pupils at the College du Bois d’Aulne where the teacher was employed.
A week ago, one man who said his daughter was in Paty’s class recorded a video shared on social media in which he branded the teacher a thug and appealed to others to "join forces and say ’stop, don’t touch our children’".
It was not clear whether the parent was one of those in police custody. It was also not immediately known if the attacker had seen the video.
A history teacher beheaded in a Gay Paree suburb on Friday had been the target of online threats for having shown pupils cartoons of the Moslem prophet Mohammed in class, La Belle France’s anti-terror prosecutor said on Saturday.
The father of a schoolgirl had sought 47-year-old teacher Samuel Paty’s dismissal and launched an online call for "mobilization" against him after the lesson on freedom of expression, Jean-Francois Ricard said in a televised news conference.
Paty was decapitated outside his school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, northwest of the capital, and the killer was fatally maimed by police.
Ricard said a warrant of arrest is out for the father’s half sister, who has joined the Islamic State group’s fighters in Syria.
Ricard identified the attacker as Abdullakh A., an 18-year-old Chechen with refugee status in La Belle France. The Russian embassy in Gay Paree said the suspect was Abdullakh Anzorov, whose family had arrived in La Belle France when he was six and requested asylum.
Possibly time to withdraw that asylum, as it seems the family is not suited to living there.
Ricard said the school received threats after the class in early October, which featured the controversial caricatures — one of the prophet naked — with the girl’s father accusing Paty of disseminating "pornography".
The girl and her father lodged a criminal complaint against the teacher, who in turn filed a complaint of defamation, said Ricard.
The aggrieved father named Paty and gave the school’s address in a social media post just days before the beheading, which President Emmanuel Macron has labeled an Islamist terror attack.
The prosecutor said the attacker had been armed with a knife, an airgun and five canisters. He had fired shots at police and tried to stab them as they closed in on him.
He was shot nine times, said Ricard.
Those arrested included four close family members of Abdullakh A., and two people who had reported to police to say they had been in contact with him, said the prosecutor.
Police also arrested a friend of the schoolgirl’s father who had gone with him to see the principal to demand Paty’s dismissal.
The friend was already on the radar of French intelligence services, and Ricard said a warrant of arrest is out for the father’s half sister, who has joined the Islamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems.... group’s fighters in Syria.
The attacker himself was not known to the French intelligence services, said the prosecutor.
An investigation is underway into "murder linked to a terrorist organization".
[RedState] I wrote earlier about radical leftists at the Woman’s March in Washington, D.C. harassing and shutting down the rally supporting Amy Coney Barrett, like the true fascist ...anybody you disagree with, damn them... s they are.
But that wasn’t the only place that the radical leftist fascists were active on Saturday.
Conservatives gathered for a free speech rally on Saturday in the Socialist paradise of San Francisco ...where God struck dead Anton LaVey, home of the Sydney Ducks, ruled by Vigilance Committee from 1859 through 1867, reliably and volubly Democrat since 1964... , with a focus on the suppression going on from big tech for things like Twitter suppressing the NY Post Hunter Biden story.
Team Save America organizer Philip Anderson was behind the event.
But free speech was apparently too much for Antifa ...the armed wing of the Democratic Party... . Several hundred ’counter protesters’ (in the words of the AP) surged into the area, attacking the conservatives.
You can see some of the pictures here. They apparently attacked several people including Anderson and a police officer.
Anderson was walking away, trying to protect another rally goer from the Antifa people when he was sucker-punched from behind. The Antifa person then hit him a second time, full-on in the mouth, knocking out his teeth.
Attacking a black man and calling him a racial slur. Antifa really showing that "black lives matter," right?
So those claiming to protest FASCISM, are are using the National Socialist (NAZI) Playbook of the 1930's.
The NAZI Brownshirts are infamous for their operation outside of the LAW and their VIOLENT intimidation of opposing Political groups and the JEWISH population. The SA’s openly displayed and conducted thuggish vigilantism, independent from the prosecution by using sympathetic Prosecutors, and anti-capitalist sentiments of its leaders.
The action of the BLM, ANTI-Farts and the Nazi Brown Shirts sure mimic each other..
Near the conclusion of the Declaration of Independence is a long lists of 'abuse' to include -
King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world....
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
History doesn't exactly repeat itself but it flows more alike a river. You can judge the speed, pattern, the eddies, and the backwashes as you ride it.

Jacobins, Brownshirts, Blackshirts, Marxists, Bolsheviks, Stalinists, Maoists, BlackBloc anarchi-communists...and jihadis. All different names for organized violent totalitarians who just want you to submit, maaaaan, so they can get on with turning you into wholly owned units of the totalitarian state where they cqn keep their boot on your neck forever.
Compared to them, mad King George III was a liberty-respecting sweetheart.
Whether Biden wins or loses, the real fight coming up will be between old-line Democrats like Pelosi and the new "progressive" left like AOC. If Biden wins, the fighting over the spoils will be truly intense. If Biden loses, the campaign for AOC in 2024 starts the next day.
Who organized it, and paid for it. DOn't tell me that SFPD and the FBI didn't have assets monitoring on the periphery for vehicle tracking/identification and that no one was doing electronic collection on this. If the FBI is suspect, consider that the USMS seems more pliant to main DOJ interests. Increasingly, there are are ChiCOm fingers in this I suspect which should be of interest, even to the Deep State.
Kid No-Talent's really moved up in the world: Pitching for something that calls itself "Thee Danielle".. on the Sh!tter.

Jim Belushi Net Worth: $50 Million.
Owns a 14,000 square foot mansion in Brentwood, California for $30 million. The house, which was custom built in 2010, has six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a sauna, screening room, pool house and detached guest house. Belushi bought the property where the house was built for $8.3 million.
Checked his Donations ... It seem he donates time and guest appearances NOT any real amount of $$$$ to say.
Other than the occasional SNL appearance, it does not seem he is doing much and needed some camera attention.
Yep! he sure has been Anti-Capitalist in his career.

Some people considered his brother a great talent. He had one character he played, the surly buffoon. His untimely death did what it often does, cemented his reputation somewhere north of where it actually deserved to be.

Jim and John grew up and went to school in Wheaton Il. Where Jim's locker used to be in the old Hubble High School is now a bbq joint inside a high end supermarket. More a GPS type where as the old high-school was torn down and replaced. For some reason people noted the position before tear-down.

This is turning bad. Apparently Erdogan and his government, to provide the Turks with a scapegoat for an economy in trouble, is looking for an out. Ngorno-K is not working out well; Syria has problems, as does Libya; entree in Somalia is not promising. Only militarily underpowered Greece provides a tempting target.
[KhaamaPress] A transporting convoy carrying U.S military’s equipment and armed vehicles was attacked in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa area of Pakistain on Friday.
According to reports, unknown button men attacked the carrier convoy while transporting US military vehicles and supplies from Afghanistan to Pakistain in the Bara area of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa on Friday.
The carrier convoy was reportedly attacked by unknown button men and many of the Tanks caught fire because of the festivities.
This is despite the fact that after the US-Taliban ...Arabic for students... peace deal, the Americans are shifting all its military equipment, tanks, and other military accessories to Pakistain every day through the Torkham border.
This action also provoked reactions from the Afghan government and the public, government officials say this act is a violation of the security agreement with Afghanistan, what should remain with the Afghan defense forces are being transferred to Pakistain.
U.S officials have not yet commented based on the incident.
Just another reason to pull out long ago. Nothing was going to be 'fixed' in Afghanistan till Pakland was turned into a parking lot. It should have been a done deal after OBL and the then leadership of the Telebabbies were tapped. F'ing nation building.
