Game on, just heard the Judge said the trial goes. Councilman James is not scared of them obviously and good for him fir standing up. Every officer on LMPD knows what Conrad is, and finally some people are calling them for it.

It's collusion just like everything else! Why did they fail to mention Putin and Russian hackers?

Dirty rich white democrats act so pretentious when they make fun of Trump's tweets. Then 2 minutes later they're talking about how communism never had a fair chance to work and there are Russians in their hall closet.

Despite all the media being on their side, people in the political middle have no alternative but to vote for who they think the least kooky and least destructive side will be.

This time they're accusing one of their own and a leading member of the black community. Tell us how that works out later this fall, Fischer and O'Connell.

Finally somebody's exposing the whole group of them, Chief, Mayor and County Attorney's office. GO DAVID JAMES. Impeach all those bastards and send them packing to Hillary's senior center. She needs some poker partners.

Metro Council president testifies he gave mayor proof of LMPD chief's dishonesty

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - In a remarkable court hearing Friday, the president of the Metro Council fought with an attorney representing the city and accused Louisville's police chief of being a liar, testifying he has provided proof to Mayor Greg Fischer. Metro Council President David James testified in an emergency hearing in Jefferson Circuit Court after attorneys for the city filed a motion accusing him of "acting in collusion" with a Louisville police officer who has filed a whistleblower lawsuit against the department and city.

James fired back that he provided Fischer with documentation this week so the "mayor could recognize that the chief has not always been truthful and he could reexamine his belief and faith in Chief Conrad being a good chief or not. At one point, James told Ervin he was being untruthful about what the councilman has previously said about the chief.

"Sir, are you accusing me of lying" Ervin asked James, "like you so cavalierly referred to the police chief as a liar?" James responded, "I just said you weren't saying the whole truth." During his testimony Friday, James said Conrad was found to have been untruthful by internal police investigators in 1998, before Fischer appointed him as chief.

James said Conrad had been accused of theft of overtime. James, who is a former LMPD officer, said Conrad belongs on the so-called Brady list.

Where's Homicide? If only they and the commonwealth attorney prosecutor had a pair of balls, maybe they'd charge this guy with manslaughter. It takes brass balls to be the real police.

An old friend in California passed along that the big social media and search engines have police hating radicals working on the inside. You pribably do not want to let them have your personal info, especially occupation, address or real phone #. There was an group who posted hundreds of LEO home addresses recently. No way they got all that from public sources. They ALL live in the left wing nut capital of San Francisco or nearby.

He suggested fake names, burner phone #s, burner emails and tell them you are an unemployed transgendered activist or something similar if you must use them

So let me get this straight. In today's testimony, the mayor said he was shocked by Harper's comments so the mayor sent Ellen Hessen to tell the chief. The chief then comments on how he should demote Harper. So the three of them have no problem remembering this conversation about a topic that was not that big of a deal but they cannot remember anything about conversations about criminal child abuse allegations against officers.......I think their testimony today speaks volumes about their attempt to cover up terrible issues.

Here's another example of why juries are letting people off for using a gun in a fist fight. It took one punch to make him fall and die. Punched him so hard his teeth went through his lip.

Here's what you'd hear Louisville's so-called activists saying if they cared about the community and hadn't sworn fealty to millionaire Democrat politicians.

"I am taken aback by the arrogance of this mayor. In the midst of a crazy, horrifying week of violence, he blames the victim. He needs to take ownership and begin to stop his neglect of an entire side of town. Just this same weekend, one Chicago's enjoying outdoor meals and watching shows and attending Lollapalooza while another one is being shot down, filling up trauma centers and preparing funeral arrangements. Of course we have these conditions that he has helped expand the disparity on."

Can't wait to hear this next time their local chapter's protesting downtown.

"No borders! No walls! No USA at all!"

Somewhere out there are parents paying $50,000 per year tuition so they can do this. That probably explains all the masks.

I call bulls--t on the "my finger slipped" story unless there's some other video showing it. If she'd been using her trigger finger to adjust the flashlight, then somebody explain how it would have fired in such a short time frame. If the flashlight were a factor at all, it would be because she was messing with it while her trigger finger was on the trigger. It was a great legal defense though.

Did lack of training lead to an accidental shooting by an LMPD officer?

The most valuable lesson I have learned from the Harper Whistleblower trial:

Majors are handpicked by the chief and serve at the discretion of the chief. That has been said as long as there have been majors. That does not mean the chief can just arbitrarily demote a major without cause. People on the police department think they know everything which is annoying. I have said it for years, just because you serve at the discretion of the chief it does not mean he can just demote you. If that were true, they wouldn't even be in court.

Watching the closing arguments live.....that attorney for the prosecution is terrible! It's like watching a turtle on a treadmill. No wonder the county attorney's office is seen as a joke.
