I don't understand what everyone on the department is so upset about. I learned years ago that no one wants us to do any work. Just collect your fat paycheck for doing absolutely nothing and be happy like me. I never get upset about anything.

According to an incident report, a group of black juveniles was walking eastbound on River Road from the Big Four Bridge toward downtown. Police say 5-7 of them attacked the girl, punching and kicking her. The suspects took her iPhone and purse. When a man stepped in to help the woman, police say a group of black male juveniles attacked him. One of the attackers found his wallet and took $56, then dropped the wallet on the sidewalk, while another managed to take his cell phone. The man was transported to University Hospital after receiving cuts to the face and the back of the head.

2) SECOND DEGREE ROBBERY: Police say the male victim was sitting in his vehicle at the corner of 2nd St. and Liberty St. at approximately 9 p.m., when he was approached by a large group of juveniles. The juveniles then began cursing at the man and surrounded his vehicle. Police say the man got out of his vehicle and told the juveniles to stop hitting his car and to leave him alone. That's when the juveniles began punching the man, taking his cell phone out of his shirt pocket, according to the incident report. Police say they then climbed onto the roof of his vehicle and kicked in the windshield.

You all make sure to sign up for all the overtime details that are available now. Our illustrious democratically elected leaders need you to work a little harder and pick up a little more slack so that we can continue to provide taxable earned income in order to provide the disenfranchised with more opportunities so that tragic events such as this won't happen again in the future.

Below is yet another logical and viable answer that will put an end to violence and rambunctious behavior in general....just like midnight basketball did following the "wilding" attacks in the 80's & 90's.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Metro Council announced today the city will offer free movies for the week of March 31st - April 4th.

The first-run movies will be shown Monday through Friday evening at the Shawnee Golf Course Clubhouse beginning at 7 p.m.

The spring break movies will include "The Butler", "12 Years A Slave" and documentaries "Little Africa" and "The Dirt Bowl". The movies will be followed by discussions to give young people a chance to speak their mind.

Cheri Bryant Hamilton is partnering with the group Getting All People (GAP) to host the events.

"We found the discussion format was very positive with our recent presentation during February of the PBS series "The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross," Hamilton said in a press release. "I think asking young people what they think about any subject is one way of connecting to them to their history and showing that we can listen to their thoughts on any subject."

The events will include free popcorn and pizza.

ok......He was charged because there was no tarc video. The kids all said the old guy was the aggressor and the bus driver helped the kids stories....TRUST ME.. NOT ONE DET. OR SGT IN HOMICIDE WAS THINKING BLACK OR WHITE OR GREEN OR RED. They were going by the facts known at the time. The tarc video was viewed a day or two later that showed the truth... If not for the video that guy would have sat in prison for 20 years. Also the chiefs office had zeroooo say in 99.999999 of the case in homicide and the command never even comes to the homicide office. The only time I know chief White got involved the white UofL baseball player and black football player downtown... And he didnt put his two cents in until weeks and weeks later and pushed the COMM ATT. for the grand jury to hear the case. all the homicide dets. knew about an hour into that case it was 100% self defense... You people live in a la la land of conspiracies... Haha u all make me laugh.

It's funny how fingers are constantly being pointed at conservative republicans and white people in general for prejudice and racial stereotyping. Then you turn on the television and see what is being passed off as "humor" from the "Lean Forward", "progressive" network and media mouthpiece of the democrat party. And it's sad because I know that I will be called a racist for simply pointing it out. Sometimes I forget my place and that I'm not entitled to my own opinion. Sorry.

Crime is high because there is no NASCAR track in Louisville. How can the Mayor be serious about stopping crime when he never even mentions a plan to build one? We must do it for the children.

Events in jeopardy after Waterfront Park cut from Commonwealth's budget

Posted: Apr 02, 2014 5:27 PM EDT

Updated: Apr 02, 2014 5:30 PM EDT

By Sarah Eisenmenger - email

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Several events are being scaled back while others are on the chopping block after funding for Waterfront Park was cut from the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky's biennial budget.

According to the Waterfront Development Corporation, on Tuesday they learned of the cuts which will eliminate $420,800 from the park's annual budget of $2,362,300.

After learning of the cuts the Waterfront Development Corporation made the decision to cancel the Waterfront Independence Festival, a free community event held on July 3 and 4. The also chose to scale back a six day event in October that coordinated with the Belle of Louisville's 100th birthday called the Centennial Festival of Riverboats.

In a press release WDC President David Karem said, "We had no indication that the long partnership that we had with the state on our park was in jeopardy. We will assess all options to adapt to this fiscal shock."

WDC said they will continue to focus on maintaining the park in addition to working to expand events with high economic impacts including Forecastle Festival, Ironman Triathlon, Kentucky Derby Festival and Waterfront Wednesday's concert series.

I'm sure the reduction in funding is merely a coincidence. It has absolutely nothing to do with the city's inability to ensure the safety of the tax-paying citizens who might attend these events.

Move along....nothing to see here.

Why not an Obamaphone and subsidized housing?

Is the lesson not to break the law again or else they will be given free health care? Just make sure all their felonies get pled down so they can keep voting Democrat.

Louisville Metro Corrections last week began holding daily sign-ups for exiting inmates and Garcia was among those qualifying for the newly expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.

It’s part of a growing push nationwide by prisons and jails trying to take advantage of expanded healthcare to curb rapidly rising medical costs in a setting where many are poor, unhealthy and uninsured.

Their motivation is twofold: Expensive inmate hospitalizations lasting more than 24 hours can be billed to Medicaid, cutting local and state costs. And it provides coverage to a population whose high rates of chronic disease, substance abuse and mental illness often land them back in jail, where they are expensive to treat.

“I know some people will think, ‘I can’t afford health insurance myself. Now a person in jail gets access to health care?’” said Mark Bolton, director of the jail that houses roughly 2,000 inmates. “But taxpayers are paying for these people anyway.”

In Louisville, Metro Corrections healthcare costs make up $9 million of its $52 million budget — a result of treating medical conditions ranging from untreated diabetes, heart disease, infections and drug problems.

That investment is often lost when repeat offenders fail to continue treating their conditions when released because of a lack of health insurance, officials said.

But the idea of signing up inmates doesn’t sit well with some Affordable Care Act critics.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said signing up those leaving jail or prison will add burdens to an already strained Medicaid program that is hard pressed to find enough doctors willing to accept Medicaid patients.

“This is yet another disturbing aspect of a profoundly troubling piece of legislation,” McConnell said.

Federal rules ban Medicaid from being used while someone is incarcerated, but that doesn’t apply to inmates hospitalized for at least 24 hours. And all prisoners are constitutionally guaranteed health care while behind bars.
