🤣NYPD OFFICER GOES OFF ABOUT HIS NEW TACTICAL TRAINING!!!🤣THIS IS A MUST WATCH...AND PLEASE SHARE!!!🖤💙🖤 pic.twitter.com/4SBMkSkHV8 — 🌻Destiny, RN, BSN🌻 (@Destiny3650) July 11, 2020 Legitimate protests have continued for months in Louisville and around the world. Conscientious people have been calling attention to police killings of citizens, many of whom are African Americans. Good for the protesters for keeping alive the names of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and so many other victims of police misconduct or miscalculation. The Black Lives Matter movement is the most important cultural voice in 2020. 99% of the violence in America has nothing to do with police. 16 people were just shot a funeral home in your city. It isn't the feds that are terrorizing your residents.
Tonight, as protesters attempted to stop @LMPD from towing a car, a woman threw water at one officer. The officer quickly grabbed her, pushed her to the ground and arrested her. People in the crowd say the officer says she threw a punch. Here’s the video. pic.twitter.com/fMCjxM4qXY — Bailey Loosemore (@bloosemore) July 8, 2020 Courier Journal reporter Bailey Loosemore was embedded with Louisville protesters as they swarmed LMPD officers. The police were having a car removed from a no parking zone near the protest site that has seen one murder and multiple battles with police over the past two months. The reporter's caption is more supportive of the protester claims. First, the type of liquid is unknown. In prior protests, police have had urine and
Matt Damon can't commit to a sensible pronunciation of Louisville. On 30 Rock, no one on the production team reshot this scene where Damon says LOO-uh-ville. Hillbillies say LOO-uh-vul. People with self respect say LOUIE-ville. The city is named after King Louis XI. There is no King LOO-uh. Ville is vill. Villanova. Villain. The Ville. Stop being a poser. If you can muster the energy to correctly pronounce Taylorsville Road and Shelbyville Road then work a little harder to say Louisville with a shred of self respect. And now here are some bloopers from Between Two Ferns. Good night. Let yourself out.
📻 @RepJohnYarmuth reacts to new info in the #DavidMcAtee shooting, clarifying "defund the police", how #HeroesAct could boost equality, and do @BernieSanders & @AOC really help @Booker4KY in red Kentucky? @840WHAS audio https://t.co/oA29cYinqz #PoliceReform #BlackLivesMattter pic.twitter.com/HfDEcrgeUe— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) June 10, 2020 We learned today that a bullet from the Kentucky National Guard killed David "BBQ Man" McAtee during a law enforcement shutdown during curfew. McAtee had fired at least two shots from the 9 millimeter weapon that he pulled. Kentucky government officials say that McAtee fired first and was shot by either of the LMPD officers who returned fire along with national guard troops. A shot from @kentuckyguard killed #DavidMcAtee, not @LMPD officers, according to @GovAndyBeshear cabinet secretary Michael Brown.
Following the police shootings of Breonna Taylor and David McAtee, Louisville has been reeling from passionate street protests against police brutality. Riots and looting sprang forth on the edges of the peaceful protests so law enforcement added National Guard troops by order of Governor Andy Beshear. The move only heightened tensions. Here are some of the most poignant leadership, legal, and prominent voices who shared a radio microphone with me to talk about solving Louisville's issues of inequality and cracked security. #Louisville metro council member Jessica Green on @LMPD shooting of #DavidMcAtee, protest rioting, small business concerns, the city's future, more 🎙️ @840WHAS audio https://t.co/HNdwo2oLdy #BreonnaTaylor #GeorgeFloyd #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/gm2xzUJLmz— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) June 2, 2020 This @nytimes video adds much more context
Today would have been Breonna Taylor's 27th birthday. She's dead. On March 13, LMPD officers shot her in her apartment after activating a no-knock warrant in search of someone who was not there. Breonna's boyfriend Kenneth Walker awoke from the police invasion and shot at what he thought were burglars. Police returned fire, wounding Walker and killing Taylor. Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets to honor Breonna in a movement launched following the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd. Four police officers have been arrested over Floyd's death but none of the Louisville officers have been charged in the killing of Breonna Taylor. Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer appeared on the radio with me tonight to answer questions about the protests, Breonna's
Australian fires started 2020. Then came the threat of nuclear war with Iran. Chinese military jets have been buzzing American warships. Oh, and then there's that little COVID-19 pandemic with an as yet uncertain outcome. Next year could be even stranger when the 17 year cycle for cicadas delivers billions of the buzzing bug-eyed pests in a Biblical plague of dead baby beastly bodies. I made the most of it two cycles ago when Sammy the Cicada and I spent a fabulous few hours together. 2020 is all about isolation. 2021 will be a noisy, crowded infestation. Pick your poison. It's going to be a bumpy decade. Terry and his pet cicada (1987)@WHAS11 @840WHAS serious journalismnot fake newshttps://t.co/aBzDHJlnKm#loumedia #kymedia— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) June
