$1.5 million for cameras and another $1.5 million (we like that number apparently) for the amazing crime-stopping Shot Spotter. That's enough money to pay for a unit of 30, who could be rounding up felons who've skipped court or have violated probation or parole. That just might be a better use of the money, considering they've done all of the cop killings of the last several years.

You can't blame Cirillo for defending them though. Anyone would defend them to keep that easy job he's got now. It's a lot better than having to explain why crime's soaring in your division like he used to.

Body cams were the death nail for self initiated activity. Those who say "officers shouldn't worry about anything if they are not doing anything wrong" are not being honest either. How would you like every single opinion you had recorded for later scrutiny? Nope, its not reasonable. In ten years, departments will look back on body cams and realize how terrible an idea they were.

People are starting to notice all the old junk cars littering the city. Why not make them available to protesting activists for the next time they want to set a car on fire or dance on the roof?

This is obviously a preliminary half-measure. In another year or two, LMPD will begin allowing all kinds of felony reports to be filed online. Detectives will make phone calls to witnesses and ask them to upload crime scene photos using an app. A police drone will fly in to collect forensic evidence.

Guy pulls up on my street two houses down in a car, parks next to a fire hydrant gets out walks through my yard goes to my neighbors house and gets into his car and drives off with neighbor watching him. Neighbor gives chase and catches him in a apartment parking lot a mile away. Instead of shooting his ** he lets him go. Police show up, run parked vehicle, it has wrong plates,busted steering column and illegally parked next to hydrant.Police say to me they can't do anything because impound lot is full and leave. Criminal comes back that night gets old car. Same guy steals another car a couple days later a few blocks away at convenient store with 2 kids in back. Same guy. Maybe if somebody had did a little police work instead of worrying about getting back to Thortons this would not have happened to these children. I know this to be the facts because I retired from LMPD and talked to the officers on the scene during first theft. Now I know why LMPD is getting the wrap of a do nothing department. Neighbor talked to division nothing done. It really is sad the dept has come to this.

The Fischer administration told the media it was only a "few drops" of sewage coming down. Thus all the garbage cans, hoses and ceiling liner.

1 of the names got out but Fischer's still covering up the others he spent $109,000 on for Derby entertainment.

"A Louisville civil rights leader revealed Thursday that one of the secret guests that Mayor Greg Fischer spent $109,000 to entertain during Kentucky Derby week was the president of the National Urban League. Sadiqa Reynolds, president and CEO of the Louisville Urban League, shared a photo that identified Marc Morial, and confirmed to the Courier Journal that he was in town as a guest of the mayor. "Thankful the city hosted National Urban League Pres for Derby," she tweeted on Thursday "Needed to show that Louisville should be on list of places our national organization considers for conference. I also needed to garner national support for the track. Which we got!!!! More on this exciting news later." Reynolds served as Fischer's chief of community building until 2015. The administration has declined to release its guest list showing who benefited from the expenditures, which included tickets to Churchill Downs, rooms at the Omni hotel downtown and other items over two days in May."

Not a surprise to see organized crime make a comeback while some are distracted by basketball coaches, shoe coaches the Trump campaign and investigating police. 8 years of Obama was enough to let the Mexicans start importing drugs straight onto the streets of Louisville.

Well....is anyone surprised???? Taxpayers paid for this yet the Mayor gets to claim attorney client privilege. Conrads name gets redacted for what reason???? Fischer claims attorney client privilege. WDRB has to go to attorney General to force their hand, but still no investigation by that office after everyone saw some of what they lied about in depositions. Taxpayer funded report and the Mayor again attorney client privilege. Would not think he could claim that in a publicly funded document. If nothing to worry about and innocent of wrongdoing why claim attorney client privilege. At least we have a Councilman trying to get to the truth and not afraid to challenge them. Proves he isn't swayed by the B.S. And has courage none of them downtown will ever have.

https://wfpl.org/kycir-3-of-every-4-jailed-louisville-youth-are-black-who-can-change-that/

Who can change black kids being 3 of every 4 jailed youth?

1. Kids themselves. It doesn't take a genius or adulthood to realize that a life of crime lands you in jail, prison or the grave. If they're that sheltered, it's still on TV every day.

2. Irresponsible parents. Don't be a criminal, don't be irresponsible, and don't let the streets raise your kids. If the kid refuses to listen to you, tell the court they're beyond your control.

3. Family court judges. When a parent tells you a kid is out of control, do something, because that's probably the next shooter, drug addict or armed robber. Some kids need to attend a "boot camp" to unlearn all the irresponsibility they've been exposed to.

4. Police, prosecutors and judges. Don't let kids walk away from juvenile charges just because they're kids. They are told they can commit crimes with impunity by gang leaders. Show them impunity will keep them behind bars until age 21.

5. Juvenile corrections. Do something but run training academies for future criminals. They should all be boot camps or residential drug rehab.

6. Welfare offices and legislators. Change the rules and laws so parents have incentive to stay in the same house, rather than never get married, in order to collect their welfare money. That's the #1 reason there are so few fathers in the house where children live in low income areas. Women can't collect the same money if the father is in the house.

7. School board and administrators. Don't tolerate deliquency in schools. If a kid screws up enough, send him to a boot camp school. A lot of today's public schools are drug markets and gladiator pits with violent out of control kids who never learn anything but how to skip it.

No thanks, I don't want people like this getting to pick the President. Thank God she lost. Her supporters are whackos.

https://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/crime/2018/06/19/louisville-police-rape-kit-lawsuit-lied/713478002/

So who downtown in the puzzle palace was telling detectives to not test rape kits and lie that they did test rape kits in both 2008 and in 2016?

It's pretty outrageous even if you are pro-police.

New guys and gals--if you ever get an order like that, ignore it and get the kit tested anyhow, because your boss is an unethical lying SOB who will get you successfully sued.

This some pathetic political B.S. and a pure example of weak leadership. An elected official throwing in the towel who is supposed represent all of us. This situation is the fault of democrats and republicans alike, and enough has to be enough with the politics. Maybe it's time all of those in jobs in the various pension systems unite and call out all of them. While Bevin has made some missteps at least he tried to make them do something. And while Beshear wants to play the air game on everything, why doesn't he offer up solutions to address the issue? But....in reality it all comes down to our elected officials in Frankfort being more interested in keeping their jobs instead of doing their jobs. Governor Bevin should order them all back into session, sit down with the various groups and come to a reasonable compromise. Tell all these democrats and republicans for once to leave their damned politics at the door. The cowards that have been elected in both sides of the aisle owe the people doing the work better

Add this to the long list of reasons every officer should have a rifle in their vehicle. Guys this psycho probably aren't going to just throw their hands up.

It's completely shameful how this has been handled. If this weren't such a corruption-tolerant city, everyone responsible would have been fired, resigned or lost their primary race.
