They will never be able to afford a new HQ until they sell some of the old buildings. The city is obviously unable to do anything with them. A commercial developer may be able to rehab them into something useful. They should start selling off all the useless buildings and use the money to lease a building somewhere cheaper than downtown. The only people who need an office downtown is the Chief and his inner circle. They can put them in city hall next to the Mayor and move some of the lower level people out to a rented building.

Somebody should be staking this out and charging for felony assault and wanton endangerment when people drop objects. Too bad the flex units no longer exist because they needed more social workers with badges to do the work of civilians.

Waiting until somebody kills someone isn't going to ever break up a gang. There are anti-gang laws on the books like KRS 506.140 and 506.150 and laws for arresting juvenile gang members like 640.010, and 610.266. It's organized crime not a few angry kids who got access to guns. The whole paradigm has to shift not just rhetoric and fugitive roundups. Interruptive their lives with short stints in jail won't leave them as much time for shooting and selling dope.

New LMPD task force met with fears of profiling, retaliation. Christopher 2x, of Hood2Hood, said some residents have expressed fears of racial profiling.

"The mistrust issues are real. They have a historic connection over generations in the way that blacks feel that law enforcement looks at them within their neighborhood settings," 2x said. Wine described instances in which police officers collected strong witness statements, but when it came time to go to court, the witnesses recanted or stopped cooperating with prosecutors. "It used to be every neighbor heard or saw something that led to solving that case and now the next door neighbor heard and saw nothing ... that's not going to solve this problem," Wine said.

Community leaders like Christopher 2x, who is deeply involved in some of Louisville's most violent neighborhoods, argue that getting people to 'buy in' to helping law enforcement solve and prosecute cases of violent crime will take much more than a pep talk. In many neighborhoods, witnesses are afraid to talk to police over fears of retaliation.

"It's just not easy for them," 2x said. "They don't believe anybody within the judicial arena can provide enough protection for them to really feel safe ... They know that they live in that other reality that, in most cases, no one is there for them as it relates to any barrier that can be set up to protect them from an aggressor." "If you can't create a blueprint to show [witnesses] a level of protection that they're totally comfortable with we're still going have these ongoing struggles as it relates to courts, law enforcement, and the community," 2x said.

Why doesn't the Sheriff's office run the jail in Jefferson County.... Why doesn't it just happen and have all the corrections officers KLEC certified officers over time and merge

Don't tell me the media is "just reporting" and not propagandizing based on politics. Witness as they go 180 degrees for Trump from what they said for Obama.

The Daily Beast 1/17/2016

"Situating National Guard troops on street corners will not fix the problem--short- or long-term. Then too, for the record, the president has no legal authority to send federal troops into Chicago--overriding local and state law enforcement--without first declaring martial law and suspending local authority. In its extreme, that means occupying a major U.S. city, federally imposed curfews, a suspension of civil rights and habeas corpus, and applying military justice to civilians--many of whom would be black teenage boys."

The Daily Beast 7/9/2014

"Send the National Guard to Chicago. To save the Windy City, we have to use everything at our disposal. A major American city is quickly being lost to guns, gangs, drugs and hopelessness, and political and business leaders are giving lip service to the problem. Yet while our politicians dither, the city's Southside and Westside residents are living in perpetual fear, afraid to walk the streets. It's time for Mayor Rahm Emanuel to put his ego and political ambitions aside. It's time for him to ask the state police and the National Guard to come into Chicago and assist the police department in regaining control of the city's streets. I have talked several times with Ret. Lt. Gen. Russell Honoré, the man who kicked butt and took names when he lead the military response in New Orleans after Huricane Katrina. In effect, Chicago needs a troop surge like what we saw in Iraq and Afghanistan. If we wanted to make the lives of residents there safer, why not do the same for Americans?"

Courier-Journal now reports on Facebook posts and replies by a couple people in small leftist groups as if it's news. Nice quote about the USA being "fascist" and a "banana republic" because some troops decided to fly a Trump flag from a vehicle. When liberals make a leap in logic, you can rest assured it will be off the deep end. Nevermind all those portraits of Obama the military had in their offices and the photo-ops he made them pose for. That's all good since he's from the same political spectrum as the media.

A look at the Mexican drug cartel pipeline from southern California to Kentucky

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Mexican cartels are controlling the streets of Louisville and other Kentucky cities with a pipeline of drugs running through southern California, according to DEA officials. Officials say the Sinaloa Cartel uses thousands of semi-trucks to transport drugs all over the country. From the freeways of Los Angeles, the drug pipeline runs north and east to Kentucky. Investigators say a kilogram of cocaine in LA sells for about $25,000, but by the time it gets to the Louisville area, it sells for about $34,000. Meth ranges from $12,000-$16,000 per pound in Kentucky, but sells for just $3,500 per pound in LA.

"This area is rife with seizures," Massino said. "Guesstimating -- we're seeing daily seizures of significant quantities; 25 pounds of meth, 50 kilos of cocaine." "What you have with couriers coming from California into Kentucky, what is affiliated with that, is violence," Pepper said. "These folks are moving a lot of dope. There is a lot of money behind that, there is a lot of threat of death, if the couriers are crossed by rival competition."

The organization has a map that shows where Mexican Drug Cartels have the most influence in the United States. There are several cartels, but the Sinaloa Cartel is the strongest. The map shows two cartels have a presence in Louisville.

"If you have two competing cartel organizations, the violence can spill into the streets," Pepper said.

The DEA map shows the Sinaloa and the Knights Templar Cartels in Louisville. The Knights Templar is considered to be just as dangerous as the Sinaloa Cartel.

Louisville Metro Police say its Narcotics Unit has not arrested anyone from those cartels and is declining to discuss any specifics, saying it could have an adverse effect on any current investigations.

"The Cartel doesn't care about the size of the city," Pepper explained. "They care about peddling their poison, whether it's Manhattan or you're sitting in Louisville, it's a customer to the cartels and they don't care how they peddle their poison, they don't care who they peddle their poison to."

The drugs take different paths into Kentucky. Investigators say many of them make their way to our streets through the National Turnpike area on semi-trucks. The DEA says the cartels work with the Mexican Mafia and gangs, then it goes to retail and street level distributors.

The Sinaloa Cartel's extensive networking in Mexico and the U.S. has helped it solidify its power and spread into places like Kentucky, officials said.

"They have established that networking with shear violence affiliated with their organizations; murders, kidnappings, some instances torture of people who have gone the wrong way against Sinaloa Cartel," Massino said.

There's a guy on my platoon who I'm pretty sure is gay. He's never tried me or nothing like that (thankfully!) but he's probably in the closet. I feel like letting this fool know he's not fooling anybody. How do you tell a person like that without being confrontational?
