You have nailed it. The mayor and the new idiot chief kept with a narrative yesterday that they knew was not true. Don't tell me they didn't see the video they released today well before their press conference. Fischer Schroeder and our **** poor command staff are pathetic. Hold the line officers be safe and sound in our judgement as we get zero support from this ugly mess of bullshizz leadership. They will never back is not care to toss us to the wolves like they have been especially the past week. No backbones nor desire to save the good folks or even good protesters. Yet they want to not only put us in harm's way and when justifiable action is taken by us they hid the truth.

They show their incompetence, lack of confidence and downright fakeness. Embarrassing to us all. And Hess is just as horrible as she shows zero credibility or actual care about squat. Oh, and Fischer needs to be impeached.

To my knowledge every FOP lodge in Louisville voted to endorse little Andy over Bevin. Well little Andy just threw those officers and national guard members under a bus. You can expect now that anytime something controversial happens to be investigated by the FBI amongst others. The State lodge needs to pull its head out of its A** for the next election cycle. Everyone stay safe and for heaven's sake stay off of social media. If you need to vent, vent to your fellow officers or family members.

No one else the buck stops with you. 10 yrs as Mayor and 8 with Conrad so you 2 ruinedbit for us. Now you want to pay someone to tell you what you messed up? Laughable. This city is doomed for at least the next 2 years. Go back to another fake appearance in the west end where you was ever rarely seen.

When is the metro council gonna call for a top down review of this failed mayor??? Chambersburg going to call out him for all the scandals??? Oh wait they probably won't as they are too scared. He never once answered them on the wdrb interview where they pressed him for a change. Good people of Louisville of all races screwed over by a weak mayor, council and Chief command staff.

This is my first time posting on this site. I want to say thank you to the LMPD officers for what you do everyday; helping people, risking your life and trying to keep the peace amid taking verbal and physical abuse from some of the protesters. I pray that God will keep you safe and that He will bring all of this turmoil to an end. God bless you all and God bless America.

The black lies matter radicals crying crocodile tears are too narrowly focused on hating police and rioting to notice most of the other people dying as a result of the riots they have carried out.

All Lives Matter

Calvin L. Horton Jr., 43, Minnesota: Horton was fatally shot near the Minneapolis Police Department's Third Precinct two days after Floyd's death in what is believed to be the first killing since the protests began.

Javar Harrell, 21, Michigan: Harrell was shot May 29 as protests erupted in Detroit; his family has said that he was not protesting and it's not clear whether his death is connected to the protests.

Dave Patrick Underwood, 53, California: Underwood was shot May 30 while on guard duty outside a federal courthouse in Oakland and was one of two officers targeted in a drive-by shooting amid nearby protests.

James Scurlock, 22, Nebraska: A violent encounter with a white bar owner, Jake Gardner, during a protest in Omaha on May 30 led to the death of 22-year-old Scurlock, who is black. Surveillance footage shows Scurlock jumping on Gardner; the Douglas County Attorney's Office determined that Garner acted in self-defense and he will not face charges.

Barry Perkins, 29, Missouri: The St. Louis resident was reportedly run over and killed by a FedEx truck while attending a protest on May 30.

Chris Beaty, 38, Indiana: Just a few feet from his apartment, the former Indiana University football player and local business owner was killed on May 30 amid unrest in Indianapolis.

Dorian Murrell, 18, Indiana: Only a few hours after Beaty's death, Murrell was fatally wounded in an early morning shooting on May 31.

Italia Kelly, 22, Iowa: Kelly was shot and killed around midnight on May 31 while leaving a protest outside a Walmart in Davenport, Iowa.

Marquis M. Tousant, 23, Iowa: Tousant was found dead at the same scene as Kelly, outside the Davenport Walmart, where authorities say a police ambush unfolded.

Marvin Francois, 50, Missouri: Francois was fatally shot after a protest in Kansas City on May 31, with police reporting his killers were three men attempting to steal his car.

John Tiggs, 32, Illinois: Tiggs was fatally struck in the abdomen by shots fired inside a Metro PCS during lootings in the South Side of Chicago on May 31.

David McAtee, 53, Kentucky: McAtee was shot on the morning of June 1 as National Guard troops and local police tried to disperse crowds of protestors in Louisville; his death led to the immediate firing of Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad, as two of the officers involved in the shooting had not activated body cameras.

Jose Gutierrez, 28, Illinois: Gutierrez was shot on June 1 in the Chicago suburb of Cicero, where unrest and looting led the city to declare a state of emergency.

Victor Cazares Jr., 27, Illinois: Cazares was killed by a shot to the head in Cicero in a separate incident on the same day; both deaths have been ruled as homicides.

Jorge Gomez, 25, Las Vegas: Gomez was shot by officers during a protest that turned violent on June 1; Gomez was armed and allegedly pulled a gun at officers.

David Dorn, 77, Missouri: The retired St. Louis police captain was killed by people looting a pawn shop after midnight on June 2, according to authorities. His accused murderer has been arrested.

Robert Forbes, 55, California: Forbes died on June 6, a few days after he was struck by a car while peacefully protesting in California City.

Two unidentified males died in Philadelphia on the night of June 2; one suspected looter was killed by the owner of a gun shop and the other was killed trying to blow up an ATM on the sidewalk.

key background

In addition to these 19 known fatalities, the past two weeks have seen numerous violent encounters between police and protesters--with both sides sustaining serious injuries. Protesters have been seriously injured by the use of nonlethal weapons and physical violence while a number of police officers are also recovering from injuries from shootings, stabbings, and objects thrown at them during protests. The majority of those fatally caught in the crossfire of protests are black males.

LMPD with National Guard backup use pepper balls to disperse a large crowd, and barbecue guy discharges a REAL HANDGUN with LIVE AMMO at the officers/NG. Barbecue guy's attorneys are trying to justify his use of lethal force against officers and NG, all because officers "shot first" with PEPPER BALLS....? They can't be serious???

This isn't a race relations crisis but a public health crisis. Libtards are a cult of self-loathing and mentally ill people. It's the result of a combination of the use of hard drugs and mentally abusive communist parents teaching their kids to hate themselves.

On the other side of the coin, you have criminally minded people doing what criminals do, trying to take from others who earn. Guilt tripping white woke libtards is so much easier and profitable than holding up liquor stores or banks.

Atlanta fired this officer for shooting a suspect resisting arrest by pointing a taser at him. Didn't even wait until the investigation was finished. Once again, Democrat politicians and their communist friends tag-team in an attempt to get police too scared and weak to keep any form of order. Then they can burn, loot, and terrorize the working people, they think, without any fear of repercussions. They've talked frequently of their desire to go to the much-hated white peoples' neighborhoods and have already done so in some cities.

If a weak old activist pawn like Biden were President, they'd know for sure there's no threat of anyone ever moving in to stop the riots. Democrats only win by keeping the rage-filled urban leftists and minorities satisfied, like feeding white mice to a snake.

Attention residents of Louisville Metro:

Never go downtown or anywhere near the west end. You will probably be robbed, beaten killed or stuck in traffic forever. This city is doomed. Move out of the county if you have a problem with that. This handful of protesters scared us off and now we're hiding in a parking lot somewhere.

Signed,

Worthless Louisville Metro

Violent attacks on innocent people naturally happen when city governments fail to protect the public as they are required to by law. Eventually citizens in lawless riots start pumping rioters full of lead. It's only a matter of time before that happens if LMPD and Mayor Fischer continue abdicating their responsibilities. People will defend themselves as they're entitled to under Kentucky law.

Do your jobs.

Is The "Second Wave" Another Coronavirus Hoax?

Just a week or so ago the mainstream media and thousands representing the "medical community" told us we must throw out the "stay-at-home" orders and go to the streets to protest the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police. The Covid-19 virus will not bother people who are protesting this injustice, they said. The virus only attacks people leaving their homes to protest the stay-at-home orders.

Now, after thousands of businesses -- many of them black-owned -- have been reduced to rubble and innocent people in the inner cities no longer have anywhere to shop for the basic necessities of life, the mainstream media has backed off of its non-stop coverage of the protests. Suddenly last week they all simultaneously embraced a new fear story to terrify the masses: a "second wave" of coronavirus was among us. It was targeting those states that dared to "open up" their economies and begin a return to relatively normal lives.

Texas, Florida, and California were singled out to scare the rest of the country into thinking that if you dare leave your homes you will catch coronavirus and die. There was a "spike" in coronavirus "cases" they claimed. Funny, just a month or so ago they were demanding that we massively increase testing, which would produce just that "spike" in coronavirus cases they are now using to scare authorities into reinstating the incredibly destructive stay-at-home orders.

The same people who were demanding more testing are now screaming that we must shut the economy down again because these tests -- which are notoriously unreliable -- are showing more coronavirus cases. This is a disease that 99.9 percent of the people who are infected with survive! But 40 million people out of work and the thousands of lives that will end due to the shutdown are never mentioned.

There is something else going on here and it is in no way related to public health.

The entire command staff should be ashamed and step down. Schroeder is weak and feckless. He and Fischer watching live people being attacked by criminals which is what these attackers were and not letting police stop it is pathetic. Watching Cirillo says it all too. Making SRT leave and let those riot instigators terrorize people on the way to work was a ***** move too. Where is the so called leaders on the council??? Where are the community leaders???? Council quiet as it gets not one has stepped up to challenge this Mayor on this BS. Business leaders are either scared or do not care either. You would think they would be speaking out. Heck they see what Fischers neighbors got 4 dump trucks and cops on their street to keep the protests away. Rally today by cops gonna do nothing too. The council has the power to make a top to bottom change from Mayor to police and it needs to be done.

For over 3 years the democrats talked about how Trump was destroying America and plotting to undermine democracy. All the while, the democrats have been destroying America in riots and undermining democracy through false allegation after false allegation to forcing the removal of the elected President from office.

It comes as no surprise that democrats are telling police nationwide to let the rioters riot. That's exactly how they planned it. They know they can't win a fair election, so now they're terrorizing the population into submitting to their demands. The democrat party is a terrorist organization now and not just a political party anymore.

https://www.wave3.com/2020/06/17/violence-continues-louisville-shot-hours-tuesday-night/

On Tuesday night, there was an average of one person shot an hour during a span of five hours. There were a total of six shootings that night, adding to one of the most violent weeks Louisville has seen. In the last six days leading up to Wednesday, 19 people have been shot, plus another five were killed.

A number of Atlanta police officers did not show up for their Wednesday night shifts in protest of murder charges brought against a former officer who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks after he resisted arrest. Hours after Fulton County district attorney Paul L. Howard said officer Garrett Rolfe would be charged with felony murder, Atlanta police union spokesman Vince Champion told NBC News that officers had decided to walk off the job and go silent on radios to protest the decision.

"This is not an organized thing, it's not a blue flu, it's not a strike, it's nothing like that. What it actually is, is officers protesting that they've had enough and they don't want to deal with it any longer," he said. In an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Champion added that "there are officers saying they are not going to leave the precinct unless to help another officer. Some are walking off and sitting in their personal vehicles."

The Atlanta Police Department released a statement after Champion's comments, calling claims that officers were walking off the job "inaccurate." "The department is experiencing a higher than usual number of call outs with the incoming shift," the police explained. "We have enough resources to maintain operations & remain able to respond to incidents." But Atlanta police scanner traffic conflicted with the statement. "We are not answering 911 calls right now due to personnel issues," a police dispatcher said Wednesday.

Just after 11 p.m. the mobile protesters returned to Jefferson Square Park. As the crowd filled the intersection and park, reports of fireworks and explosions began coming in to MetroSafe. There were also reports of glass breaking at Metro Hall and gunshots. LMPD released video showing a man throw a firework or explosive at Metro Hall and the Hall of Justice. Police say officers gave several orders to disperse. At 2:45 a.m., officers on the scene near Jefferson Square say bottles were thrown at them. As a result of that, officers moved in again and cleared the park. 56 arrests were made total.

"I find your conduct a shock to the conscience. I am alarmed and stunned. The result of your action seriously impedes the goal of providing the citizens with the most professional law enforcement agency possible. I cannot tolerate this type of conduct by any member"

Someone should have sent those words to the responsible members of command and Mayor Fischer when they willfully permitted the Mayor's political base to rampage through the central business district a few weeks ago.

Antifa thugs find out what happens when they make the mistake of picking an armed victim to beat down in the street.

Apparently the arguments about the lack of equity and need for reparations were unconvincing. May they rest in peace, at least until meeting the devil. Not much peace after that.

BREAKING: 7 shot 2 dead in Louisville,Ky otherwise known as possibility city. This in less than 10 hours on Fathers day 2020. Where are the protests for this senseless violence in our African American communities???? Where is the Mayor and why not be standing in the street offering us words of wisdom??? Where is the interim Chief protesting and telling everyone enough??? Where is the now proven weak and inept Metro council why are they not out today offering hope and togetherness???? Where is BLK & the criminal Channelle Helm?? Why is she not leading a protest on the violence in her own community???? Where is Rev. Tim Findlay and safe neighborhood hustler Vincent James??? Oh wait, all of the above are not in it or care about this city. Instead of possibility city it needs to be called idiotcity.

Metro Council pouring millions more in taxpayer dollars down the same rathole they and the Board of Aldermen have been pouring down since the 1960s without any results. In that time, the west end has gone from not so great to bad to horrible to become one of the top 10 most dangerous places in America. They lost their shopping district on 28th Street in the late 1960s thanks to riots, burglaries and vandalism. Now it's a literal shooting gallery for street gangs nobody wants to acknowledge exist.

Understand this, feckless politicians: you cannot and will not create a viable economy in a gangland warzone, except for black market drugs, guns and prostitution.

Where you at, Greg Fischer? You're the one who allowed protesters to illegally camp in Jefferson Square and declare it their autonomous zone. You're the one who told LMPD to disappear so they could create a socialist utopia in the park. You're the one who set the stage for them to start killing each other just like they've done in the other Democrat autonomous zones across the country. You're the one who's helped paid communist agitators, criminals and psychotics to create the state of anarchy is this city and ruin the futures of dozens of Louisville businesses. You are who helped the incompetent Governor shut down this city's economy and make all these people unemployed and stir crazy from having nothing to do. You are who ruined Louisville.

Resign now and take your likeminded Democrats on the metro council with you. Bloomberg probably needs a few butlers, maids and gardeners now that everyone's fled DiBlasio's failed and dangerous New York City. It will feel just like home.

Would be nice if the temp Chief would grow a pair and stop apologizing for how the violent rioting anarchists' illegal tent city was removed following yet another violent, oops I mean peaceful, protest. How about denouncing the violence in the park? How about admitting that had he and the mayor not allowed the occupation of the park in the first place, last night's shooting wouldn't have happened? How about stopping with the politically correct b.s.? People are tired of it, and it's getting really stale at this point.

Reimburse?????? WTF!!!! This mayor needs to be removed by the council now. So we reimburse them with taxpayer money that all working people of Louisville pay. What about all the business owners who lost thousands when the Mayor and Chief had our officers stand down so damage could be done to them. The irony is those same businesses who pay taxes are now paying for the so called peaceful protesters who used this park as a staging area. Grow some courage council and remove this idiot.

The same alleged peaceful protestors who, days ago, threw jars full of pizz, zhit, puke and vomit and bricks, concrete and fireworks at police officers. The same peaceful protestors who block traffic, assault drivers and point guns at motorists. The same peaceful protestors who shoot and kill each other. A "soft touch" with these same thugs? Please tell me that was a joke, right?

This....is laughable and verified the joke and cowardice that is our Metro Council. First things first...Mayor's office said he banned no knock warrants...Nope. Mayor says made leadership change at LMPD...yeah he fired a chief that was retiring anyway after 8 years of incompetence. Mayor should have fired him years ago, in fact never hired him. Leadership has not changed still full of incompetent cowards to include Schroeder and the majors and above. Everyone within LMPD knows this. Mayor orders a review of LMPD...well isn't that just funny and a waste of taxpayer money. Review a department he had direct charge of with Conrad. What brains agency will get their wallet padde after spending little to no time and who could care less.

NOW...The council and their B.S. Investigate Fischer is a cover to kick the can down the road as they are afraid to do the real task for change and remove him. Wait until a vote in July to vote on a resolution to investigate. Then take months of not a year or more to do what????? NOTHING. They are scared of making the national mayors association of whatever it is called mad by doing what we all elected them to do which is be leaders. Hold a hearing ASAP and vote him out and someone step up to fill the void for change NOW not 2 years from now. It looks like not only screening the council's part, but hoping they can simply pander a little to let this incompetent jerk ride out his term while destroying what is left of our city. ENOUGH. Change is needed now.

Has anyone heard more of a bullshizz liar than this mayor.

1. About transparency- lie, only if his fingerprints are not in it.

2.Will not resign- The council needs to do their job for this city

3. Misunderstanding- no misunderstanding suspensions were threatened so he and his weak police chief could put safety of officers at risk to appease a few protesters. He even admits it in this interview by saying so about the reactions of protesters. So...you are willing to risk one of us for a few. Likely those few that are offended are the ones hoping to start a violent confrontation. Oh, and he forgot to mention the rooftop protesters with long rifles. His and Schroeders willingness to risk our safety is beyond disgusting. There illegal order is like sending our soldiers into a village in Iraq in their underwear. Shame on Bates, the colonels and all the Majors for their lack of courage to do anything.

4. His firing of Conrad was a joke given the fact he was retiring. His top down review is laughable as he was the Mayor over the city while he watched the disintegration of LMPD.

5. If the council is really going to investigate this stuff since they will not force an impeachment which they easily could and win over an entire city that wants it.

6. The council should investigate the past 4 or 5 years. Call up Harper and his attorney Mr. Clay see what they really have. The depositions alone they took are indictable at this point on their cover up of kids getting raped and letting the city devolve into crime and chaos.

July 1, 2020 at 11:03 AM EDT - Updated July 1 at 11:03 AM. LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Twenty people were arrested following what police called "reckless behavior of protestors, aggressive maneuvers toward police and failing to disperse once ordered," on Tuesday night. A caravan that included approximately 200 vehicles began at Waterfront Park, according to Louisville Metro Police Department spokesman Lamont Washington. Officers intervened after unsafe behavior, aggressive driving, driving on sidewalks and unlawful traffic maneuvers were observed. Police said they witnessed, "extremely dangerous behavior - including riding down the freeway at high rates of speed with people on top of vehicles."

Washington said police diverted the caravan in different directions and officers were met with aggressive behavior. During diversion efforts, a vehicle in the caravan hit a LMPD Traffic Unit at Shelbyville Road and Blankenbaker Parkway, Washington said.

A group of protesters who were at Jefferson Square Park were joined by caravan members. Washington said protesters threw bottles and other objects at officers who were monitoring the park, overturned trashcans and other antagonistic behaviors so police disbanded the group and several arrests were made for unlawful assembly. Police said a returning caravan vehicle, with a driver and four passengers inside, rammed an armored SWAT vehicle. All the people in the vehicle were taken into custody. Washington said no officers were injured in the crash. The downtown area was secured around 12:30 a.m. and officers remained in the area, according to LMPD.

Interesting the LTC that received a city settlement commanded the 138th FA HHB Soldiers that were involved in the shooting.

The LTC was profiled as a homeless man at Mid City Mall a few years back a nd was arrested but was then "unarrested" upon validating his story. Officers never filed a report, and all was captured on mall security cameras.

This was the first big issue Conrad had to deal with.

The LTC did not blame the officers involved but went after the Command and Staff for ignoring the issues and for taking 8 months for the investigation.

He said that Conrad would not last because he was a politician and used his department to protect himself.

Everything came full circle.

Get ready for the top to bottom reviews. They will send in retired cops from sophisticated big cities having 10 times the policing problems of backwoods un-cultured not-woke cities like Louisville, which they never quite figured out how to solve. They will tell everyone how things should be done, which is the way they and the Mayor have already agreed it should be done in order to get the contract. Here's a sneak preview.

"What is Co-Produced Public Safety (CPPS)? The CPPS model places the delivery of public safety services into a shared decision model - one that assigns the public joint decision authority in establishing policing strategies within their communities. CPPS relies upon certain tenets of community-based policing but moves the theory further by calling for shared ownership, responsibility and voices in establishing how public safety services are delivered. It facilitates collaboration between community members and police about what services are needed and how those services should be delivered. The goal is strategic policing in support of public safety as agreed upon by the communities being policed. Police as well as other agencies that have particular expertise in a variety of social services provide public safety through shared responsibility.

Under CPPS, community members are not just ad-hoc participants in policing, but active and engaged partners with city and police leadership. Under a CPPS model, public safety is just that: co-produced and shared through collaborative relationships. Police officers have the support of social services and other professionals who are experts in responding to certain situations (e.g., domestic violence, mental health issues) and can provide specific, essential services. They are considered a budgetary essential - and the public receives better services as a result.

CPPS establishes key policies to be mutually owned and agreed upon by the community and its police department. This is a comprehensive approach, one that articulates the goals for the police department and its mission and methods for policing, as determined in conjunction with its community. This approach sets guidelines on how the policies will be implemented, includes measurements for evaluating the effectiveness of the policing plan and establishes a mechanism for resolving problems as they arise. This collaboration is vital given there are fundamental issues that can be better managed and mitigated by the adoption of the CPPS model.

Use of force training, an essential part of policing skills, must focus on prioritizing interventions that rely upon de-escalation and intervention ahead of a use of force decision.

In a CPPS model, stakeholders recognize that racial bias exists in American society, and will work to mitigate and eliminate that bias among policing personnel

Communities should have a voice in police funding priorities. We would be remiss if we did not mention the calls to "defund the police" in public discourse; Minneapolis City Council recently announced their plans to disband the police entirely. In reality, "defunding the police" as a phrase means different things to different people. Police personnel are essential - but cannot be expected to fulfill every service need for their community. They can partner with experts in specific fields and collaborate with their community members to create a holistic approach to public safety."

Just remember, in case any of you have any fûçks left to give...

After you've been been surrounded by violent, angry mobs and being pelted with rocks, bottles, urine and feces, this is all it takes to lose your livelihood.

"A Newnan, GA. police officer is asking for reconsideration after he was fired for alleged use of force violations while making an arrest.

The police report indicates Officer James Robson arrested Newnan resident Sherman Daniel on June 14, 2020, charging him with fleeing from police, driving with a suspended license and interfering with police when they attempted to stop him for having a brake light out at Martin Luther King Drive and Dodson Street.

According to the report, Daniel did not stop after Robson signaled for him to do so by activating his blue lights and siren. It indicates Robson continued driving for more than a half mile until he pulled into a parking spot at the back of the Eastgate Apartments.

Body cam footage from the Newnan Police Department shows an angry crowd shouting at the two officers at the scene. It also shows an officer directing a young girl out and away from the car. The officer then commands Daniel to step out of the vehicle and to put his hands in the air. The video then shows Robson as he approaches and handcuffs Daniel, then Daniel asking him why he was handling him so roughly, following Robson saying it was because he didn't stop.

You can also hear Daniel explaining he didn't stop because his daughter was in the car and he was trying to get her inside. He also indicated he knew he would be arrested because he didn't have a license.

At the patrol vehicle, Robson yells for Daniel to get it, before Daniel accuses the officer of pushing him and being rough once again.

The police report indicates Robson said he drew his gun because he didn't know why Daniel failed to stop.

An Employee Disciplinary Report indicates Officer James Robson was terminated on June 18, 2020 for violating several department policies, which include:

Use of Force: Handling Daniels after he was handcuffed in a manner that goes beyond what was necessary, reasonable or needed

Not properly securing Daniels in a safety restraining device in the patrol vehicle

Insubordination

In his grievance letter, Robson disputed the violations, saying he used reasonable force, citing laws he said supported his rebuttals under the alleged circumstances and indicating he considered the termination as extreme.

Robson also implied his termination could be related to the Black Lives Matter movement and recent protests drawing attention to police brutality against Black people, but he denies any excessive force was used during Daniel's arrest.

Newnan police have not yet confirmed whether they are considering Robson's appeal."

Community advocates concerned as Louisville sees increase in gun violence

Violence is on the rise in Louisville, as LMPD is seeing more shootings compared to years past. Community activist Christopher 2X said there have been 62 homicides in Louisville throughout the first half of the year, and the first few days of July. During the first six months of 2019, there were 43."

"If you look at it and average it out it's almost ten homicides a month which is unheard of," said Christopher 2X, the Executive Director of Christopher 2X Game Changers. "It's just been plowing through and the velocity of it is just surprising at best."

He, along with other community advocates, thought the COVID-19 pandemic and recent social justice efforts would slow down violence in the city. "We thought that there would be a pause button and a tick down on shootings because of COVID. Farthest from the truth," 2X said. According to LMPD data, non-fatal shootings are up 100% compared to 2019. That's 246 non-fatal shootings in 2020 versus 117 non-fatal shootings by this time in 2019.

"One thing is crystal clear to me. We had a lot of vendettas before the COVID shutdown even occurred, before the unrest occurred and I believe that it's just transitioned right along and chugged along the whole time unchecked," 2X said. While the answer is far from simple on how to see a decrease in these numbers, the Game Changers are trying to help.

"We at Game Changers believe nobody should feel ashamed, or feel afraid to seek out help," 2X said. 2x said paying attention to the ages is the first step. "No one has to look at middle school and high school anymore to see the symptoms and some might not really want to relate to the reality, but we're seeing it as early as preschool," 2X said. "I'm asking everyone to start focusing on how young these behavioral patterns are starting to formulate." Despite many shooters and victims falling between the ages of 18 to 24, 2X said the signs can be spotted much younger.

They used an anonymous report and turned stuff into a Pablo Escobar drug trafficking case. Fischer strikes again, going to sell the detectivrs, sergeants, lieutenants, Major and probably a Colonel down the river over it too.

"Attorneys representing Breonna Taylor's family are claiming that the police warrant that led up to the 26-year-old emergency medical technician's death was linked to a gentrification plan in Louisville. There were plans underway for a "high investment, high dollar real estate development" for Elliot Avenue. Taylor's ex-boyfriend Jamarcus Cordell Glover rented a home on the avenue, according to the attorneys, and it presented a "roadblock" for the project. Attorneys alleged the "large scale projects" to develop west Louisville made by Mayor Greg Fischer have "primarily failed." They said the focus on Elliot Avenue is one of his "last chances" for a "visible legacy" before his term expires in 2022. One of the projects he championed is Vision Russell, which the lawyers said "has been in the works for the last six years without the promised success.""

Watch how Fischer blames everything on racism, instead of holding his voters accountable for destroying much of this city. Blaming it all on white racism just drives taxpayers and companies out that much quicker. It shows democrats to be disconnected from reality and unwilling to hold themselves responsible for the anti-white racial hatred and destruction their political narratives have created.

I expect nothing from the metro council except to join in his pandering with the addition of a few veiled criticisms of how poorly Fischer has pandered. This is the end of Louisville as we know it.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Gray News/WAVE) - WAVE 3 News Troubleshooters obtained new video that shows the moments after the Breonna Taylor shooting.

The cellphone videos pick up a short time after Taylor was killed and LMPD Officer Jon Mattingly was shot in the leg by her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker. The March 13 incident was one of several deadly confrontations with police around the country that have sparked protests and riots nationwide. One video includes the moment when an officer, walking Walker out of Taylor's apartment, asked him why he shot. "What is it about?" the officer asked. "You guys fired shots, you know this." "We were just in the bed," Walker responded. "We were scared. We didn't know who it was."

Taylor died at the end of her hallway after being shot five times by officers returning fire. In a recorded interview played by the Commonwealth Attorney's Office, Walker said he and Taylor got up and got dressed after hearing the knocking at their door. Walker also said in that recorded interview that while he did hear knocking, he did not hear officers identify themselves. That is something officers have disputed, claiming they repeatedly announced themselves before ramming through the door.

The first video also showed Mattingly, who was shot by Walker, being taken away from the scene. An officer was heard asking, "Is anybody else out there hit?"

There was also some commotion as officers were seen placing a tourniquet on Mattingly's leg to avoid him from bleeding out. "It's OK; just put some pressure on it," an officer said. The next videos showed officers asking Walker to come out of the apartment. Officers could be heard telling him to come out with his hands up, a command with which he complied. He was then seen walking backward toward them until they reached him and placed him in handcuffs.

The videos also showed a number of officers arriving at the scene from different units that normally wear body cameras. None of those videos has been publicly released by LMPD. Taylor's attorneys filed subpoenas for any body camera video, but they have not received any. Attorney Sam Aguiar said his office is working with the city on a timeline for when those videos would be released to his office.

Everyone be sure to vote against the JCPS tax increase. The teachers have screwed this state by getting incompetent morons elected in Louisville and Frankfort.

Why is JCPS asking for a massive tax increase? Many of their graduates become criminals or far left wing socialists lacking basic skills needed to flip a burger. Not even the rich kids can keep a job so they turn to full time activism during their 12 years of college for that useless Bachelor of Woke Progressive Studies degree. JCPS should be reducing their costs not raising them now that all instruction is online.

Take them to court, metro council. The federal rules of evidence do not preclude anyone but the federal court employees, investigators and prosecutors from disclosing over grand jury investigation materials. Metro government isn't bound by 6e unless they obtained it from the FBI.

Taylor's attorneys are correct. PIU should not be investigating suspects who shoot officers. That should have been given to LMPD homicide as it used to be. 1 or 2 Sergeants in a unit micro-managed by command, few of whom ever worked a homicide in their careers before PIU, shouldn't be doing both cases.

One more reason to let SWAT handle all forced entries. SWAT should always have medics available at a scene like that one, unless they've ruined SWAT in recent years.

The other reason is that if that guy had been a PTSD ex-infantry soldier or marine with a rifle, and unhappy enough about his girlfriend being killed, most of the officers on that warrant service could have been massacred before backup arrived. A petty dope case isn't worth the risk they took on from the get-go. Fire all the COs that touched this case and let them sue to get their jobs back.

The real reason Mike O'Connell is letting felonies be turned into misdemeanors is that he furloughed 47 of his people in May and all the ones left behind do is take whatever the defense attorneys offer. His office is overwhelmed by the amount of civil suits against Metro. The commonwealth attorney's office is in only slightly better shape.

The state Attorney General should open up his own special prosecutor office on a permanent basis in this county and give them a few dozen investigators.
