Long story short is the administration made the metro council madder than wet hens by refusing to answer simple questions about how many additional officers are needed. Fischer should be planning his return to the ice business after next year.

Another 4 people shot in Smoketown. Clearly there should be a tripling of manpower in community relations to stop this. They could take a few spots from Homicide and patrol.

A councilman said the Chief would rather officers hand out snacks on street corners instead of get tough on crime. I tend to disagree. Ideally, officers would be handing out snacks while peacewalking through the high crime neighborhoods, unless they were blocking a road for one of the 50 road-blocking special events each year.

They seem to be missing some key facts in this call for his resignation. He is merely doing the Mayor's bidding where LMPD's approach to crime is concerned. Telling Fischer to replace him would just get the same kind of Chief. Conrad should be the Major for Community Relations. That's where his interest and talents lie. The Chief's should be given to someone who understands how to police a high crime city like this, but Fischer will never hire that person.

Police Accountability Board

April 22nd, 2017 @ 8:46AM (2 months ago)

Thanks to Dave Mutchler and Councilwoman Denton, the nomination of police hater, anti-white, racist Ricky Jones has been tabled until May. The Mayor and his chief of staff, in all their wisdom, nominated the extremely biased Jones to the Police Accountability Board. What is the logic of having him on the board? There is no way he would ever be fair and impartial regarding anything to do with the police. His tweets, facebook posts, and articles to the courier journal exemplify his existing prejudices. Thanks Dave and Councilwoman for catching this stealthy nomination before it was too late.

"Conrad is a liability.

Fischer is seen by some as an out-of-touch dilettante who is more concerned about bike lanes and being a "compassionate city" than he is about stopping murders and getting a handle on his police department."

Another stupid pedestrian killed in Louisville. Anytime a pedestrian is killed it is almost always the idiot pedestrian's fault. I have literally seen people walk in the middle of the street here. It's one of the first things I noticed when I moved here in 2005.

A teenager got shot on in broad daylight, suspect description available, but not shared with the public to locate the individual. Those in the media should know they are not being given the whole truth by this opaque administration.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- LMPD is investigating after a 17-year-old girl was shot in the Shawnee neighborhood. Authorities say it happened outside around 12:45 p.m. Sunday in the 300 block of North 38th Street. Officers located the teen with a single gunshot wound. She was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

It really shows what type of Mayor Louisville has... It actually is really scary for us law-abiding citizens. Murders double from 2014 to 2015 and doubled again 2015 to 2016.... 2016 was the most murdera in Louisville since the 70's. 2017 is on pace to beat that number. The Mayor wants Ricky Jones on a board to over see police and he is the top Anti police person. We have new paid Community agitators, Mayor Fischer appoints Chief Resilience Officer, Chief Equity Officer.. Mayor Fisher created a WEAK police chief and police department. Very disgusted in Mayor Fischer. Crime is unprecedented, roads are bad, graffiti is out of control, roadways are a mess with trash and debris, abandoned houses seem to be at a high, the jail system is passed it's breaking point, LMEMS medics are passed a breaking point. So much more nonsense... Feel free to add 100 more things to the list. This is the best chance for a republican Mayor. Hal Heiner only lost to Fishcer by 7000 vote. Wake up Louisville

This is the second time since 2011 this has happened and the officer wasn't charged or fired because the other driver was partially at fault. It's a Jefferson County thing that prosecutors in other counties and in Indiana just wouldn't understand. Better stick to the speed limits when going through areas still having the rule of law if you're that reckless in Louisville.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A police report reveals an LMPD officer was going 27 miles over the posted speed limit before a crash that killed a woman. The crash happened on March 26 on Fern Valley Road at Jeanine Drive. According to the report, the marked police cruiser was driving eastbound when the driver of a Honda Accord turned in front of the cruisers' path. The police car hit the Honda, sending it off the road, into a road sign and eventually into a ditch. A passenger in the Honda, 42-year-old Bishnu Bhujel, later died at the hospital. The report reveals the officer was driving 72 miles per hour when the speed limit is posted at 45. The victim's family says it plans to file a lawsuit against LMPD.

More damning information. After Conrad let Betts walk away without charges, he went to Audubon Park PD. Nobody at LMPD bothered to tell their Chief what he did other than say a minor incident involving improper contact, which Betts explained away.

5 months, probably at a fenceless camp with Wall Street embezzlers. He will have to watch out for tennis elbow.

LOUISVILLE - United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr. today announced the five month prison sentence followed by five months home detention, of a former Louisville Metro Police Department Detective, by Senior Judge Thomas B. Russell, in United States District Court, for stealing contents of packages while working as a drug interdiction task force officer. Kyle Willett, 48, of Spencer County, Kentucky, remains free on an unsecured bond following today's sentencing hearing. Willet waived indictment by grand jury and plead guilty to a felony Information on December 21, 2016, before Magistrate Judge Dave Whalin, charging the former detective with theft from interstate shipment. A condition of the plea agreement required Willet to forfeit $74,745.99. Willett admitted to stealing cash from a United Parcel Services (UPS) shipping sorting facility in Louisville, Kentucky, while working as a drug interdiction task force officer. From January 2016 through August 2016, Willett, while working as an interdiction task force officer, would identify UPS packages that possibly contained cash. He would then take the packages to his vehicle and open them. On a number of occasions, Willett then stole the contents of packages. During this period, he stole approximately $74,745.99 in cash from these packages. As part of the plea agreement, Willett forfeited proceeds traceable (directly and indirectly) to such violation, including but not limited to: a) $72,000 in United States Currency; b) $520.00 in United States Currency; and c) $2,225.99 in United States Currency.

bullschitt... I have made 100's of people killed in motor vehicle accidents in jefferson county in 25 years and short of being drunk, no charges are ever filed.. At fault drivers admit to speeding, running red lights, not paying attention, eating, putting makeup on and yes drivers have said "I was texting" and killed and innocent person and were not charged... So this officer should not be charged.

The 2018 budget pays for 44 more officers, to 1293 total. It also pays $1 million for violence interrupters. Unless those interrupters are like Denzel, they will need more officers to make any kind of a dent in this crime wave.

This would be welcomed in Louisville, where there are roads shut down every week.

Lakeland, Florida - A man caught on camera eating pancakes in the roadway as a prank has been charged. Kiaron Thomas was charged with placing an obstruction in the roadway and disrupting the free flow of traffic. Lakeland Police were originally called about the incident Tuesday and told that a man was sitting in a crosswalk of the eastbound lanes of Memorial Boulevard and Brunnell Parkway. Police were told that a man was sitting in a chair with a small table and appeared to be eating pancakes. When police arrived, the man had left the area. A video of the incident was later posted on Facebook and shared with Lakeland Police. Several people tagged the video with Thomas' name. Thomas, who lives about 100 yards from the intersection, told police he did it as a prank. Police said his actions "prevented vehicles from moving and created an obstruction." Police did not say if Thomas finished his breakfast.

Denver finally started doing what they needed to do. When will Possibility City give up the false talk about child gangs and random violence?

DENVER -- FBI agents and local police officers rounded up dozens of gang members Thursday morning suspected of turning areas of Denver's Five Points neighborhood into "an open-air drug market," brazenly selling crack cocaine in parks, around a light rail station and at an apartment complex. The 20-month investigation culminated in a takedown of members of the East Side Crips as 225 FBI agents and officers from 18 local law enforcement agencies, including SWAT teams from four police departments, began making arrests Wednesday night and continued the dragnet into Thursday morning.

A federal grand jury indicted 52 gang members and their associates from around the Denver metro area. They're accused of selling powder cocaine and crack cocaine in public places while "terrorizing" community members, said Robert C. Troyer, the Acting U.S. Attorney for Colorado. By Thursday morning, 35 suspects were in jail and a manhunt continued for 17 others. Authorities seized $80,000 in cash, three guns, 9 ounces of powdered cocaine along with a Hummer and GMC Denali sport utility vehicle, law enforcement officials announced at an afternoon news conference. Gang members with nicknames like "Lil Crypto," "Trigga Loc" and "Bonehead Jr." were arrested.

If LMPD tracked homicides accurately, they'd acknowledge the 139 victims of fentanyl-contamined drugs were murder victims instead of trying to hide how bad things are are. The fact that none of these deaths resulted in a murder charge is a sure sign that Major Crimes needs new leaders top to bottom when Conrad leaves.

The drug war is being lost, which is why the murders are happening. When weak judges and weak law enforcement let drug dealers roam free, they shoot people and cause deadly overdoses by selling fentanyl-poisoned drugs. They mix fentanyl with drugs to make them cheaper to make a greater profit, knowing they will kill many who take it. The only path to lower homicides is zero tolerance for drug dealers, most of which are part of street gangs killing other gang members for drug turf. They get their drugs from cartel-owned stash houses in Louisville's mostly white suburbs. Why is nobody in law enforcement moving against these people? I believe David Greenwell is not alone in betraying his oath of office.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A former Louisville Metro Police officer exhibited a "pattern of behavior" in using his position of trust and authority to meet teens in the department's youth Explorer program, according to sources with knowledge of a 2013 internal investigation. A summary of the probe against former Officer Kenneth Betts -- involving allegations of misconduct with two teens -- even cited a state law related to abuse of power, the sources told WDRB News. But instead of conducting a broader review into the claims, Chief Steve Conrad allowed Betts to resign seven months later and the investigation concluded.
