So...how much is Anthony Smith collecting from taxpayers to head up a group that doesn't even exist?

Louisville has some very bad areas requiring a different approach than has been tried in the past. A small percentage of people commit most of the felonies and a smell percentage of felons commit most of the murders. Any time spent putting those types behind bars for any offense they commit is time well spent. Find out who they are, stop and frisk them often, put them in jail for pot or loitering or anything else they do. They won't have as much spare time to murder. The department will also need to temporarily reassign officers to the high crime divisions from slower areas and desk assignments. This is how NYPD cut their murder rate. Real success can't be achieved through politically correct town hall meetings or by just tracking down murderers after the fact.

I blame Anthony Smith and Mayor Fischer: not for all the murders, but wasting $80,000 a year of our tax dollars in creating a fake Violence Coordinator position. The B/S violence group doesn't even exist. Dump Fischer on the next election. While you are at it get rid of JCYC too, they are absolutely worthless.

The "Gentlemans Academy" was also a catastrophic failure in the HUG A THUG philosophy too. You folks need to get a grip and stop wasting taxie monies on polical stunts that don't do a dang thing to help our community.

I suddenly feel a lot better about the state of affairs at LMPD. There is always someplace a little more messed up.

Lets see...nearly a dozen murders in just over a week and Homicide Lt. saying "all hands on deck" and we have additional personal working cases...Ummmm I rode by headquarters several dozen times from 9pm to midnight and EVERY SINGLE TIME all the lights were out in the entire homicide office. HAAHAHAHAHAHA.. maybe someone should look at the keyphob or all the cameras in HQ and see no one is doing schit! What a joke and a scam!

When you have a large part of society being supported by the gov't.they have nothing to do but sit around and complain. The same bunch know their check is going to be there at a certain time every month along with every other assistance they can get for free. This gives them nothing to do but cause issues for the public and police. The people in the east end are going to work for a living and don't have time for getting into problems. They are trying to raise their kids right and generally have time for them. This is not everyone but the vast majority. When people have no hope for themselves they usually turn to a bad light. This is just human nature. This society needs to wake up and help a certain segment to educate itself to quit standing around waiting for the next gov't handout. This does them no justice. Their kids see this and are trapped in the same cycle with no hope of breaking it. There is no such thing as a free ride it comes with a catch, always. Until you want to make something of yourself no amount of money given to you will change anything for the better.

Best thing I've seen in politics lately is Jerry leaving them. No if every other office holder would get out we might accomplish something.

What the heck is up with Lt Gregory in the 2nd divison. HE HAS LOST HIS MIND, THE CONFIDENCE OF HIS TROOPS AND MORALE.....He is ALSO making huge officer safety decisions and someone will get hurt. He needs to be reigned back in to reality!!!!!!!

WE HAVE TOO MANY SERGEANTS, LIEUTENANTS, MAJORS & LT COLS. THE CHIEF IMPLEMETING THE VIPER UNIT ADDED 7 MORE SERGEANT POSITIONS, AND 1 LIEUTENANT. THAT'S MORE MONEY TO ADD TO THE BUDGET. WE CAN AFFORD TO DOWNSIZE ON THE BRASS.
