    No shots fired or received by the police - 7 protesters shot by their fellow protesters, as is often the case (Ferguson, Charlotte, etc.).

    This is the Kentucky case where Benjamin Crump has gotten involved and started running his lawsuit publicity machine to drive up the price of his settlement with the city. As you probably call, Benjamin is the attorney who represented the estates/families of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Ahmoud Arbery, and pretty much every black person shot by the police that resulted in a mountain of press, national outrage, and riots, over the last 8 or 10 years.

    7 people shot at Louisville protest over the death of Breonna Taylor

    Seven people were struck by gunfire at a protest in Louisville, Kentucky, on Thursday night as tensions there continued to escalate over the fatal shooting of a black woman by three white police officers in March.

    Of those reported injured, one was in critical condition, the Louisville Metro Police Department said in a message. No officers discharged their weapons or were among those injured at the demonstration, the department said, adding that it was too early to determine who might have been responsible.

    Maybe that problem will solve itself, if given enough time and ammo?

    Predictable. It seems they are stepping up the narrative and the reaction is predictable.

    Maybe it's time to pull all police/fire/ems and let the problem sort itself.
    I have a nephew who is an EMT. He was at a shooting call and a crowd gathered, started shouting threats and racist slurs and threw beer bottles at them.
    He said it was getting more and more dangerous to even try and help.

    Impossible!! Ghetto mobs are just citizens peacefully petitioning the government for the political addressing of grievances.

    By that they mean:
    "Ask us monday because we'll probably get a call that the person responsible was killed over the weekend."

    Personally, I would like to see my tax money used to solve these problems by legalizing and distributing drugs, guns, ammo, etc., so the people of these communities can work out their own problems and live their lives as they see fit. I don't expect that to happen, but it would be my solution.

    The point has been mentioned in comments to the local papers that these protesters shot more black people in one night than the police have all year.

    Blacks killing blacks gets different results because it's not a political button for the racist left. Democrats just happily add the "gun deaths" numbers to the total and use it as a statistic to justify taking away more freedom.

    I just got done with a chat from my former partner at work. Also saw some pics of damage done to agency cars and the jail itself.

    Funny thing is, the "protest" began at 2nd and Main streets. The jail is at 6th and Liberty. For those unfamiliar with downtown Louisville, that requires a move of four blocks west and three blocks north. Plenty of time to have a perimeter around the jail which would have prevented damage to the facility or its property.

    There's more, but I don't wanna put everything out on a public forum. Let's just say I'm not very surprised about the response from my former administration.

    When did you join GT? I'm assuming by your screen name that I know you, your brother, and your parents.

    Yes, yes, and yes. I joined almost 6 years ago, now. Actually, I think you were the one who showed me this website back when I was on second shift.

    Troutman would be great, it would be nice to have a leader who actually gave a rat's ass about his Officers.

    That's a possibility, lol. I'm sure your parents have something to say about this idiocy, too. Especially dad.

    Glad you're okay. I doubt the officer was anyone I knew, given that most of them are gone now. The pics I've seen are terrible. They giving you guys anywhere safe to park your own cars?

    Just kidding, I know the answer to that one.
