Impressive run. One to be proud of.

He may have understood the old way of policing, where police go around "arresting criminals" in the old style, instead of allowing them to stay free to vote Democrat.

I don't believe he was as well versed in the modern methods of police leadership used at LMPD. We didn't see any ice cream giveaways, peacewalks, disbanding of units to mask officer shortfalls, annual announcements of imaginary gang task forces with the feds, undercounting of crimes, demoting of whistleblowers, or allowing command-favored officers committing crimes to resign without charges. Once St. Matthews hires that new Chief away from LMPD command, they will surely bring them up to the LMPD standard.

So between about 75 retirements and 49 promotions in a few weeks. That is an INSTANT approx 125 officer vacancies... HOW THE PH U CK is lmpd going to catch up or even handle that shortage... Schit the department was short already.... Unprecedented times in Louisville KY and record murders. Depressing.....

Who in the world taught this homicide detective how to interrogate. That is the worst question ever... It's laughable and sad all in one... I'm shocked they charged her after giving her the answer to say. LET THEM GIVE THE STORY NOT GIVE IT TO THEM FOR FUKS SHAKE.

Here's some quantitative proof that the administration lied to the Metro Council about not needing more officers. If they didn't need any more officers, then LMPD wouldn't need this much overtime.

One full time officer would work 2080 hours in a year and about 173.3 hours per month on average, leaving out vacation days and sick days.

608,717 overtime hours divided by 2080 equals 292.65, or the equivalent hours that 293 additional officers would have to work if there was no overtime.

"...victim, who was found in the 400 block South 38th Street after LMPD's ShotSpotter alerted officers to gunfire in the area."

According to WAVE, ShotSpotter was instrumental in this investigation and fails to mention how many average citizens made calls to metrosafe in reference to the shooting. The most surprising thing is that a NBC affiliate would go out of their way to promote, yet another waste of tax dollars by a a liberal, progressive democrat. The entire function of the shotspotter system could be replicated for exactly zero dollars of taxpayer money by a police officer actually riding his/her beat with his/her windows rolled down....but that's none of my business.

Former Homicide Det. Mark Handy sounds like a real gem... How many payouts is the city gonna do on his illegal police work.
