Judge's political talk leads to deputy misstep

In open court, a judge facing re-election beckoned defense lawyers who support her to the bench to discuss her failure to win a key endorsement and its implications for her campaign.

Despite a judicial canon that says judges shall "refrain from inappropriate political activity," Jefferson District Judge Gina Kay Calvert showed the lawyers a handwritten note saying, "The FOP did not endorse me!!"

Man killed in LMPD officer-involved shooting in Russell neighborhood

An LMPD officer who shot and killed a suspect early Tuesday said the man pointed a gun at him before he opened fire.

It happened just after midnight after the officer answered a call about a domestic dispute in the parking lot of City View Apartments at Ninth Street and Broadway near Esquire Alley.

Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad tells WDRB that a man and woman were fighting when the officer -- who was working alone -- arrived. The man reportedly went to his car, retrieved a pistol and pointed it at the officer. That's when the officer shot and killed the suspect.

Judge's remarks show she often assumes guilt

While arraigning Daniel Bakken in February 2013 on a charge of stabbing his wife after she found love letters from his girlfriend, Jefferson District Judge Sandra McLaughlin had this to say to the defendant:

"She should have cut you."

Bakken turned out to be innocent. He was exonerated after the Louisville Metro Police surgeon determined the alleged victim's wounds were self-inflicted.

20 year sentence handed down for 20-year-old who shot LMPD officer

A 20-year-old man gets 20 years in prison for shooting a Louisville Police Officer.

In his testimony, officer Lamont Washington said he will never forget standing feet from the man who nearly took his life. "February 24 of 2012, I had two bullets put in me by this person," he said. "This is something that sits with me every day."

"I went through 4 months and a week of very painful rehabilitation. The first round went through my thumb and destroyed the bone in the center. The second one missed. The third went through my badge and through my vest, went into me a half an inch," he explained. "It was right on my subclavian artery so had it gone in any further and God not been with me I would have bled out from this."

Police union takes on councilwoman over column

It has been some time since I've read a correspondence from an elected official that casts such a generalization and stereotype on a group of people in our community. Worse yet, the recent opinion piece by Louisville Metro Council member Attica Scott categorizes this group as licensed killers who should be distrusted and treated with malice.

Iím a cop. If you donít want to get hurt, donít challenge me. Opinions & Commentary

Iím a cop. If you donít want to get hurt, donít challenge me.

A teenager is fatally shot by a police officer; the police are accused of being bloodthirsty, trigger-happy murderers; riots erupt. This, we are led to believe, is the way of things in America.

It is also a terrible calumny; cops are not murderers. No officer goes out in the field wishing to shoot anyone, armed or unarmed. And while they're unlikely to defend it quite as loudly during a time of national angst like this one, people who work in law enforcement know they are legally vested with the authority to detain suspects - an authority that must sometimes be enforced. Regardless of what happened with Mike Brown, in the overwhelming majority of cases it is not the cops, but the people they stop, who can prevent detentions from turning into tragedies.

 
 
Threats based on movie taken seriously by police Louisville Metro Police Department - Louisville, Kentucky

Threats based on movie taken seriously by police

Is it a joke or a real threat? That's what Metro police are trying to find out after threats of random violence for the weekend are being made on social media mimicking a summer movie.

The film titled "The Purge" and it's sequel "The Purge: Anarchy" are thrillers that encourage random violence in a 12 hour period, once a year.

While what is being threatened in Louisville could be a prank, police met about and are looking into the threats and they say they are prepared.
