Louisville police chief fired after officers kill unarmed man at protest

Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad has been fired following the killing of an unarmed black man early Monday morning after a weekend of contentious protests.

Mayor Greg Fischer announced the termination of the embattled chief after it was announced that no body-camera footage was available from the shooting of David McAtee.

Conrad already had agreed to resign from his position by the end of June after the controversial police killing of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency room technician who was killed in her own home by Louisville Metro Police Department [LMPD] officers.

Now, his tenure will be cut short after less than 10 years as chief of police. His tenure was marked by scandal and low officer morale, including a teen sex abuse scandal that saw two of his officers prosecuted and incarcerated for acting sexually inappropriate with minors involved in a mentorship program. The scandal produced seven lawsuits that have been ongoing.

The FBI confirmed to Fox News that an investigation was ongoing into the Youth Explorer sex scandal, but could not confirm that Conrad was a target in the investigation.

“[Officer] morale was already low due to poor leadership. They’re hurt, the vast majority do an outstanding job and dedicate their life to the city.”

— Louisville Metro Council President David James

Conrad was appointed to the position in 2012, a year that saw seven officer-involved shootings. One of those included the now disgraced and incarcerated ex-cop Brandon Wood, who has been serving five years for sexually abusing a teenager involved in the disbanded Youth Explorers program.

The most violent year for Conrad’s LMPD was 2019, which saw 16 officer-involved shootings that resulted in five deaths. In total, there have been 62 officer-involved shootings that have resulted in 27 fatalities, according to LMPD data.

“I think the officers are in shock,” Lousiville Metro Council President David James said. “Their morale was already low due to poor leadership. They’re hurt, the vast majority do an outstanding job and dedicate their life to the city.”

VIRAL VIDEO SHOWS LOUISVILLE OFFICER PROTECTED BY BLACK PROTESTERS WHEN SEPARATED FROM SQUAD

Local reporters have indicated that Conrad will still receive his pension after being fired.

McAtee, a 53-year-old local business owner, was killed after officials said LMPD investigators and the Kentucky National Guard “returned fire,” after someone allegedly had fired a shot at the officers and soldiers.

A family member said McAtee died trying to shield his niece from the gunfire.

McAtee’s identity was confirmed by Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, who said he’s working toward “getting all the answers as quickly as possible” on social media.

Now, those answers may be delayed after reporters on the ground in Louisville said not a single body camera on LMPD officers at the scene of McAtee’s death was activated.

“The lack of institutional failure will not be tolerated,” Fischer said in announcing Conrad’s firing.

Change at the top of the LMPD was coming, and some critics said it’s long overdue, but it may not be enough to heal the wounds in Louisville right away, after the killings of two unarmed black civilians by police and a number of other scandals under Conrad’s watch.

“Today is a terrible vindication for the victims, whom the community has believed in for the last four years, but whom Steve Conrad never supported.” 

— Louisville attorney Thomas Juanso.

The most damaging to public trust and shocking of the scandals was the Youth Explore sex abuse case, according to a local attorney who was on the initial civil lawsuits. Fox News covered the scandal extensively in a four-part podcast.

“At every turn, Steve Conrad failed to adhere to the mandatory state-required reporting of child abuse, refused to prosecute child rapists, and tarnished the careers of the LMPD rank and file,” attorney Thomas Juanso said. “Today is a terrible vindication for the victims, whom the community has believed in for the last four years, but whom Steve Conrad never supported.”

Now, with LMPD veteran Robert Schroeder acting as interim chief of police and internal and Kentucky State Police investigations underway into the shooting of McAtee, local officials said they hoped the city could start to heal.

“I’m hopeful for the future prospects of Louisville. I’m sorely disappointed in the mayor and how he’s handled things.”

“I’m hopeful for the future prospects of Louisville,” James said. “I’m sorely disappointed in the mayor and how he’s handled things, with this, with Breonna Taylor, with the Youth Explorer case, with the police overtime [scandal].

“In the end, this is America, and we are going to overcome this issue and we’ll be much better for it. We’ll get to be what we tell everybody we were and what we believe we are,” he continued, hopefully.

Former NYPD commissioner says NYC curfew comes ‘way too late’: ‘Should have been done a couple of days ago’

Former New York Police Commissioner Howard Safir told “Your World” Monday that a newly imposed curfew for New York City can work in preventing riots if Mayor Bill de Blasio allows the NYPD to enforce it.

“It should have been done a couple of days ago. This is coming way too late. There is so much destruction,” Safir told host David Asman of the curfew, which is in effect from 11 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday.

“Curfew is a great idea, because it limits the number of people on the street,” Safir added. “It helps identify who the real perpetrators are. It is something that is very important. They did it in Minneapolis finally, and they are beginning to see some results.”

TRUMP UNLOADS ON ‘WEAK’ GOVERNORS OVER PROTEST RESPONSE

Asman put it to Safir that some cities have enacted curfews, but not strongly enforced them.

In Philadelphia on Sunday, Democratic Mayor James Kenney enacted a 6 p.m. curfew, only to see parts of West Philadelphia vandalized and looted.

“I know the NYPD,” Safir told Asman. “If they are told to enforce the curfew, they will enforce their curfew, and people will be off the streets.”

Safir added that he believes de Blasio is “backing up” the NYPD, despite friction between the mayor’s office and the rank-and-file over the years.

“[De Blasio’s] former policies and instructions have gotten totally out of hand and have caused destruction, vandalism, and chaos in the streets,” he said. “I think he has finally realized that he has to listen to his police executives and to Dermot Shea or the city is going to be totally out of control.

“He has not been a great supporter of the NYPD. Cops know it. That is why you have this schism between the police department and mayor,” Safir added. “One of the things that made it so successful when I was police commissioner was the fact that the relationship with the mayor was [such that] we never had to look behind us. We always knew that we had the support of Mayor Giuliani.

“The perpetrators who are really causing the violence need to be arrested and need to know that there is a certainty of arrest,” he added. “They will fade away.”

George Floyd riots: Cuomo, de Blasio announce NYC curfew

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Monday imposed an 11 p.m. curfew in an effort to prevent another night of violence in the city over the death of George Floyd.

With an 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew, New York is joining other cities nationwide in imposing restrictions after days of unrest. The limit on the movement of 8.6 million people comes after months of restrictions already imposed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Cuomo and de Blasio said the outbreaks of violence left them no choice, even as they advocated for peaceful demonstrators who have spoken out against police brutality and racial injustice.

“We can’t let violence undermine the message of this moment,” de Blasio said. Cuomo blamed “people who are looking to distract and discredit” the protests and said they couldn’t be allowed to undermine public safety.

The two leaders, both Democrats, also criticized some police actions as fueling protesters’ rage.

Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said earlier Monday on NBC’s “Today” that he worried about whether a curfew would be heeded.

“If people think it will, they don’t understand what’s going on,” he said.

The announcement came after rioters overnight had smashed windows and plundered shops in parts of Manhattan, resulting in hundreds of arrests.

A 21-year-old man was shot in the SoHo neighborhood around 12:30 a.m. and was taken to a hospital, police said. They said his injuries were not life-threatening.

Groups of people poured down the sidewalks in Soho and other neighborhoods, including Union Square, breaking into Rolex, Kate Spade and Prada boutiques and electronics stores that have been shuttered for over two months because of the coronavirus.

On Monday morning, police were visible on some of SoHo’s hardest-hit streets, and the smell of freshly cut plywood wafted as stores boarded up.

“It’s disturbing because I’m 100 percent behind the protesters and against police brutality and bad cops killing people of color whenever they fricking want to, but this is a different story,” said Ruby Packard, a teacher and longtime SoHo resident.

Sunday was the third night in a row of mainly peaceful daytime demonstrations, chaotic nights, hot spots of violence and arrests, with the mayor’s daughter among those arrested over the weekend.

Thousands of people have taken to the streets across the country to express outrage over Floyd’s death and other killings of black people by police and U.S. citizens. Floyd, who was black, died after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes.

On Sunday, New York City police made some gestures of solidarity with marchers during the day. Some officers knelt with protesters in an intersection as an organizer called out the names of people killed by police. But the police department has also come under criticism for confrontations with demonstrators over the weekend.

Cuomo said some police officers had exacerbated tensions with some “very disturbing” actions.

The head of the city’s rank-and-file police union accused the governor of misplacing blame for the chaos.

“We have terrorists burning and looting our city,” Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch said.

New Jersey police officers help lead peaceful march for George Floyd in nation’s latest act of solidarity

A New Jersey police chief and several officers marched in solidarity with protesters in one of the state’s most violent cities on Saturday as part of a peaceful protest in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

The act was one of the latest shows of solidarity between law enforcement and those protesting in their communities nationwide.

Camden County Police Chief Joe Wysocki, donning his uniform and a face mask, helped hold the banner at the head of the march in Camden alongside the march’s organizer, Yolanda Deaver.

“It just turned into something bigger than what I expected,” Deaver told NJ.com. “I couldn’t believe it. We walked in peace. I was so moved.”

A photo the department shared online shows Wysocki carrying the banner while throwing up a peace sign. He raises a fist in another photo, while Lt. Zack James is seen marching in uniform with other protesters.

”Yesterday was another example of our ongoing engagement, and a very real dialogue, that we are having with residents throughout Camden that has made our agency part of the fabric of this city,” Wysocki said Sunday in an emailed statement to The Associated Press.

Police officers there have become hyper-focused on community policing since the city’s police force disbanded in 2013 and reformed as a county agency. Some uniformed officers attended a neighborhood block party Saturday night and were pictured grilling hamburgers and hot dogs.

“We know that together we are stronger, we know that together, in the city of Camden, we can create a space where policing is focused on deescalation and dialogue,” Wysocki said.

Gov. Phil Murphy shared a photo of Wysocki, Deaver, and others marching together, writing: “We can – we MUST – march toward justice together.”

Demonstrations have popped up in cities all over the country, sparked by anger over Floyd’s death in Minneapolis on May 25, which was captured on cellphone video. Many have turned violent, leading to riots and looting at night.

The four police officers who were arresting Floyd for suspicion of passing a counterfeit bill were fired a day later. Third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges were filed Friday against the officer who used his knee to pin Floyd down as Floyd pleaded for air.

While violence has overshadowed many of the peaceful protests, images from across the country have captured police officers, demonstrators, and communities coming together in solidarity.

In Oklahoma City, video captured the moment when sheriff’s deputies took a knee Sunday in solidarity with those protesting the death of Floyd, drawing applause from a large crowd of onlookers.

In Louisville, Ky., a group of mostly black men linked arms to protect a lone Louisville Metro police officer who was separated from his unit when protests turned violent in the city last week.

Marchers in Flint Township, Mich., urged Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson to join their march with chants of “Walk with us! Walk with us!” Swanson obliged, replying, “I want to make this a parade, not a protest.”

Police in Fargo, N.D., held hands with protesters while officers took a knee in Santa Cruz, Calif.

On Sunday afternoon in New York, officers clapped on protesters, hundreds of whom stopped and took a knee with fists raised just north of the Empire State Building.

Protesters attempted to tear down Alabama Confederate statue, Birmingham mayor vows to ‘finish the job’

Protesters demanding justice for George Floyd attempted to remove a Confederate monument from an Alabama park Sunday before being ushered away by the Birmingham mayor, who promised to “finish the job.”

A group gathered at Linn Park in Birmingham Sunday afternoon shortly after a nearby rally held in honor of Floyd, the Minneapolis man who died in police custody on Memorial Day after a police officer was seen in the now-viral video with a knee to his neck for several minutes.

People used a rope to pull down a statue of Charles Linn, the park’s namesake who was a captain in the Confederate Navy and later one of the founders of Birmingham. The toppled bronze statue was also covered in graffiti, Fox 6 Birmingham reported.

A crowd unsuccessfully also tried to use rope and chain attached to a pickup truck to pull down a large, granite Confederate monument across the park. Though the rope broke, and the monument remained erect, protesters pulled away the plywood barricade covering the monument’s base. They chipped away at the writing etched into the stone and further vandalized the monument with spray paint.

Comedian Jermaine “FunnyMaine” Johnson seemed to inspire the destruction during his speech at the rally beforehand.

“We’ve got a lot of cities around the country. They’re tearing down Target. They’re tearing down city hall. We can’t do that. We gotta protect our city,” Johnson began, according to AL.com.

“We can’t tear down 16th Street Baptist Church. We can’t tear down the civil rights museum. We can’t tear down Carver. We can’t tear down A.G. Gaston Plaza,” he continued, naming areas of the city commemorating the black community and civil rights movement.

“But what I’m not telling you to do is walk to Linn Park,” Johnson said. “I’m not telling to walk to Linn Park after this rally. I’m not telling you to tear something down in Linn Park. I’m not telling you that I’m going to be over there after this rally.”

Police at Linn Park looked on and did not intervene until Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin arrived at the park to address protesters using a megaphone. Woodfin, who is black, directed the protesters to disperse to avoid being arrested once he sends the police in.

“I understand the frustration and the anger that you have,” he said. “Allow me to finish the job for you.”

Though Woodfin did not go into detail Sunday, the City of Birmingham’s earlier efforts to remove the Confederate monument have been blocked by a legal fight with the Alabama Attorney General’s Office. Johnson said he would give the mayor until Tuesday to have the monument removed before encouraging protesters to take further action themselves, AL.com reported.

“This past Tuesday, like you, not as a mayor, not as a son, not as a leader, not as a citizen, but as a black man, I saw another black man’s life taken, snatched from him by an officer putting his knee on his neck for well over seven minutes,” Woodfin said in a video statement Sunday evening. “It bothered me. It made me angry. It hurt. And, it was the heaviest I felt in being a black man for a very long time.”

“Many of you all have a right to be very angry right now. You have a right to be sad. You have a right to demand that policing be better not just in Minneapolis but in Birmingham and the nation and the world,” the mayor continued. “Let me tell you what you don’t have the right to do. You don’t have the right to walk around busting windows, setting things on fire, damaging people’s property, looting, taking things that don’t belong to you. That makes you a hijacker of a peaceful rally. That makes you a hijacker of peaceful protesters. And those types of people aren’t welcome in the city of Birmingham. I’m appalled by what I’ve seen tonight.

“We support peaceful protesting. We do not support what has happened here. It’s unacceptable,” he said. “Stop destroying your own community. Stop destroying our community. We deserve better. And, if you want policing reform, this is not the way to do it.”

After being ushered out of the park, crowds swept past the adjacent Jefferson County Courthouse, shattering several windows and damaging a statue of Thomas Jefferson, setting fire to its base. A group set fire to an American flag hanging at a Wells Fargo down the street, and, as nightfall came, spray painted windows and broke glass walls of the ground floor of one skyscraper, entering the building.

Firefighters were putting out a blaze at the California Fashion Mall store around 2 a.m. Monday, AL.com reported.

The Confederate monument in Linn Park was erected in 1905 by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, according to Newsweek. The now toppled statue of Linn was put in place in 2013 by a local organization honoring the Birmingham founder’s descendants.

Philadelphia residents stand guard to protect local Target store from looters

Dozens of residents in South Philadelphia banded together in a show of solidarity to protect their local Target from looters on Sunday night.

RIOTING, LOOTING LINKED TO GEORGE FLOYD PROTESTS LEAVES TRAIL OF DESTRUCTION ACROSS AMERICAN CITIES

Violent protests tore through the city and other parts of the country throughout the weekend to condemn police brutality following the death of George Floyd, and in Philadelphia, a citywide curfew went into effect from 6 p.m. on Sunday to 6 a.m. on Monday.

Despite the curfew and urging from law enforcement officers to go home, members from an activist group “Stand Up Philly” negotiated with police to stay and continue to guard the store, according to reports by the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Other protesters were offended by the group allowed past curfew to stay at the Target and squabbles broke out, but were contained by police, the reports said.

Earlier in the day, several local businesses including another Target were ransacked by looters smashing windows and doors and stealing merchandise. Other rioters set fire to structures and vandalized police cars.

In other earlier instances, protesters in Philadelphia hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at police, officials said.

On Sunday night, the state’s National Guard was called in an effort to tamp down on violence.

George Floyd is a martyr. His death is more than a tragic incident on the streets of Minneapolis, it is emblematic of a traumatic and abusive 401-year relationship.

When former Police Officer Derek Chauvin drove his knee into the neck of Floyd – the latter bound by handcuffs, face pressed against hard concrete, his cries for mercy falling on deaf ears from men in uniform who were sworn to protect him – the pain and suffering of so many was on full display and could not be ignored.

Since 1619, America has placed its knee on the necks of black people, while others who had the opportunity to intervene stood idly by and watched.

DONNA BRAZILE: GEORGE FLOYD AFTERMATH – WHEN WILL THIS END?

We saw our country explode this weekend. It is true that some of the people involved in the wreckage and destruction of property had different agendas. However, you witnessed a generation of young people who are angry and frightened that someone they know or love could be next. They are resentful of their countrymen who, just five years earlier, ignored or worse, opposed their pleas that their lives and the lives of those in their communities simply mattered.

In 2015, with the exception of a few cities, most of the marching was done peacefully. The media vilified the protesters, their cause, their means of protest, and even the victims of violence themselves by impugning their character. Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players knelt in solidarity with the fallen and in a silent call for justice. They were called “sons of bitches.”

More from Opinion

I wish I could say George Floyd’s death was exceptionally different or more egregious than the others before him. The truth is, it wasn’t.

The protesters rightly feel patronized by those who feign expressions of grief and then instruct them on the right way to protest. The question is, where were you? Where were you when Eric Garner begged for mercy, screaming the very same words as Floyd that haunt so many of our nightmares: “I can’t breathe“?

Where were you when Aiyana Stanley-Jones, a 7-year-old girl, was shot in the head by a police officer during a raid? When 12-year-old Tamir Rice was gunned down while playing with a toy?

When Philando Castile was killed while a child watched from the backseat of his vehicle only a few miles from where George Floyd took his final breath? When Atatiana Jefferson was shot through a window in her own home during a wellness check?

What occurred on May 30, 2020, will live in infamy like many days before it. It is like Aug. 11, 1965, and April 29, 1992, and April 25, 2015. We have seen images of police brutality and unjust killings on film since at least the early 1960s. What we are seeing is nothing new, except now the images no longer go through a newsroom filter, where often an older white man gets to decide whether or for how long it is newsworthy.

America has allowed police brutality and other related issues to go unchecked, and today every major city in the country is smoldering.

This country needs to have a spiritual, social, cultural and political reckoning. Systemic racism is cancer. For too long we have been told to ignore the symptoms or given temporary pain relievers, like an uplifting speech from a well-respected politician or an encouraging word from a celebrity.

Like all cancers, when you fail to address the underlying issue, it grows and metastasizes until the body is in full-blown crisis. America has allowed police brutality and other related issues to go unchecked, and today every major city in the country is smoldering. The knee of America has been on the necks of black people for so long, despite their fealty to the principles enshrined in our Constitution.

Any cancer survivor will tell you that the treatment and healing process is arduous, painful and prolonged. It is not comfortable but it is necessary for survival.

The need in this country is for peace, justice, progress, unity. As we can see, there will be no peace without justice, no justice without progress, no progress without unity. Until we can show that peaceful protests yield tangible, lasting results, we will continue to have these explosions every few years.

We are a leaderless nation. There is no one at the helm whom the public can trust to usher change and progress, who fights to unify us with words and in action. There is no political or spiritual leader who can reset our ailing country. That leaves the responsibility on us.

Some are saying that the protesters who are destroying property don’t respect the law. That is true.  And it’s because the law has shown repeatedly that it doesn’t respect black and brown people. In a cathartic rage, they feel as though they are fighting back, disrupting the repressive status quo and placing their knee upon America’s economic and social neck, even if only for a few hours.

It is incumbent upon us to show them they are wrong, that their grievances will be heard and taken seriously, and that true structural change can be achieved through nonviolent means.

George Floyd was a martyr and symbol of something much larger. Officer Chauvin’s arrest and conviction are only the first steps. The color of Chauvin’s skin is not the primary issue, the color of his uniform is. I want to know that if I am having a medical emergency, I will be aided by the institutions I help to support, not ignored or hurt worse. There are police reforms that must occur.

Stephen Jackson, a former NBA player who knew George Floyd personally, was asked by rap legend Fat Joe about watching Floyd’s death. Jackson responded, “I saw myself.” Fat Joe, who has referred to himself in the past as a “black Latino” appeared emotionally moved.

I am a 6-foot-2 black man. I saw myself. Black wives saw their husbands. Black young people saw their fathers. Black mothers saw their sons. When President Obama saw himself in a black boy who was stalked and killed by a vigilante, he was roundly criticized.

Until society fully recognizes our humanity and white men see themselves in Floyd – white women see themselves in Breonna Taylor – white parents see their children in Tamir Rice – white advocates of the Second Amendment see themselves in Atatiana Jefferson or Philando Castile – we will return to this very position with business and communities in ashes.

Florida police officer suspended after video shows him pushing kneeling woman

Florida police officer has been suspended and is now under review after he was seen in a video shoving a kneeling woman to the ground during demonstrations against the death of George Floyd.

Officer Steven Poherence of the Fort Lauderdale Police Department will have his actions investigated by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement before an internal investigation is conducted, Police Chief Rick Maglione announced Monday.

The situation began Sunday when Poherence was one of several officers who had come to the assistance of a colleague, who had been surrounded by demonstrators and felt endangered, Maglione said.

Then some of the protesters began jumping on a patrol car and that officer also had to be rescued, Maglione continued.

He said as police were removing the endangered officers, Pohorence pushed the woman to the ground. Poherence’s colleagues then quickly pushed him away from the woman and down the street, while bottles were being thrown.

Maglione said he understands why some believe the shove provoked the crowd to throw bottles, but he said there were people in the crowd with bricks, bottles, fireworks, and other weapons who were hoping to start a fight with officers. He said the demonstration had been peaceful and was dispersing until some surrounded his officers.

“I don’t think [Poherence’s] action created what occurred… we were in the process of an officer rescue that turned into another officer rescue,” he said. But, he added, Poherence’s actions “could have added to what was going on.” He commended the officer who pushed Poherence away from the woman.

“She did what you are supposed to do — when you see either adrenaline or emotion or some kind of interaction going south… that is our job to do is intervene,” he said.

Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis said he felt Poherence’s actions were “offensive,” and he’s happy the department has suspended him.

“I thought that was something that should have never happened,” the mayor said.

Man allegedly killed by police in Kentucky, cops say suspect fired first into a crowd breaking curfew

A man was shot and killed in Louisville, Ky., allegedly by officers and National Guard soldiers who were returning fire when shots erupted in a large group of people breaking curfew shortly after midnight on Sunday night.

Law enforcement officials were called to the scene outside a food market around 12:15 a.m. According to Louisville Metro Police Department Chief Steve Conrad, someone in the crowd fired shots at officers and both soldiers and police returned fire.

News outlets showed video taken in a car parked at a gas station. It recorded the sound of bullets being fired as groups of police and national guard soldiers crouched behind cars.

“It has been a very difficult four days for our city. Our officers are working very hard to keep people safe,” Conrad said. “While doing that, we’ve had officers shot at and assaulted. I think it’s very, very clear that many people do not trust the police. That is an issue that we’re going to have to work on and work through for a long time.”

On Monday, protesters gathered outside where the shooting occurred, near the Dino’s Food Mart, and mourned the death of “the BBQ man,” according to reports by WLKY.

Multiple local reports said the man was the owner of a BBQ restaurant but didn’t name his establishment.

The family confirmed the identity of the deceased as David McAtee, WLKY reported.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer met the family near the site of the shooting Monday and attempted to comfort them with hugs, video taken by local media shows.

Fischer had ordered a 9 p.m. curfew over the weekend because of an uptick in violent protests demanding justice for Louisville resident Breonna Taylor, who was killed back in March in her home by narcotics detectives, and for George Floyd, who died in police custody after an officer of the Minneapolis police department kneeled on his neck for over eight minutes.

It remains unclear if McAtee is the one who fired at the law enforcement agents during the confrontation Sunday night. Several “persons of interest” are being interviewed, Conrad said.

Meanwhile, Gov. Andy Beshear called for the body camera footage of the fatal shooting to be released to the public so that people can “decide for themselves” who is at fault.

Speaking at a press conference Monday, the Democratic governor told reporters that every account suggested law enforcement was fired upon first but said he wanted to know all the facts.

“I want the people of Kentucky to be able to decide for themselves,” Beshear said. “Let’s put it out. Let’s let people see it.”

The governor has authorized state police to launch an independent investigation into the incident.

At least seven people were wounded in instances of gunfire during protests in downtown Louisville last week, prompting Beshear to call in the state National Guard.

Even before Floyd’s death, which has garnered national attention, the city’s residents have been mourning the death of Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT who was shot by detectives who suspected of her on drug charges. No drugs were found in the home.

More than two months after her death, the mayor announced last week that police are suspending the use of these no-knock search warrants.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio stands by daughter after protest arrest, disputes media reports

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio insisted Monday that his 25-year-old daughter was “peacefully protesting” and “not doing anything that would provoke a negative response” when she was arrested late Sunday night during demonstrations against the death of George Floyd.

Chiara de Blasio was taken into custody in Manhattan after allegedly blocking traffic and then refusing to move, law enforcement sources told the New York Post.

Yet De Blasio said when he and his wife Chirlane asked their daughter to explain the situation on Monday morning, she shared a different story.

“She was very clear that she believed she was following the instructions of police officers and doing what they were asking,” de Blasio told reporters.

“Absolutely she was abundantly clear — she was peacefully protesting, not doing anything that would provoke a negative response,” he added.

New York City was hit hard by looters Sunday night who targeted high-end retail stores and left a trail of destruction in their wake.

De Blasio said he wasn’t aware of his daughter’s arrest until a member of the media sent an inquiry to his office seeking his comment.

“It’s a reality that every parent faces — that you never know when your kids become adults, how they are going to go about their lives,” he said. “Sometimes you get surprises.”

LUXURY STORES LOOTED IN NEW YORK CITY PROTESTS 

The mayor said Chiara had participated in a peaceful protest a few nights before her arrest.

“And when I found out she had been arrested, I finally reached her with Chirlane and I asked her recount the whole story and look – I love my daughter deeply, I honor her. She is such a good human being. She only wants to do good in the world,” he continued. “She wants to see a better and more peaceful world. She believes a lot of change is needed. I’m proud of her that she cares so much and that she was willing to go out there and do something about it.”

However, a law enforcement source that spoke to the New York Post described the scene where Ciara was arrested as being a “real hotspot” where police cars were getting burned and “people were throwing and yelling, fighting with cops.”

“There were thousands of people in that area at that time,” the source added, describing how officers declared the scene an unlawful assembly.

Upon arrest, Chiara listed her address as being the mayor’s mansion – but did not tell police that she was de Blasio’s daughter, the sources added.

She was given a desk appearance ticket – and the arrest happened an hour before her father told demonstrators during a late-night press conference to “go home,” the New York Post reports.

The NYPD Sergeant’s Benevolent Association union, which has been a longtime critic of de Blasio, tweeted out Chiara’s arrest report. The tweet reportedly contained her personal information, but Twitter ended up taking it down for violating its terms of service.

“How can the NYPD protect the city of NY from rioting anarchist when the Mayors object throwing daughter is one of them,” the now-deleted tweet read. “Now we know why he is forbidding Mounted units to be mobilized and keeping the NYPD from doing their jobs.”

De Blasio ripped the tweet Monday as being “unconscionable.”

“Police unions could be part of the change and the improvement in this city and this country,” he said. “They really should re-evaluate what they are doing at this moment in history.”
