Fortunately, this time there was CCTV video. Louisville is one of the PC zones where Black Grievance propaganda thrives. In 2014 the Louisville community was held hostage by mobs of “black teens”. The political correctness was so extreme the FBI was dispatched to aid the city because the local authority, Mayor and Police Chief, claimed they could do nothing to protect the public from the mobs.
The FBI even issued domestic terrorist warnings due to the violence being coordinated on social media. People were dragged from their vehicles and beaten as the mob ruled the streets for several weekends. Described as “the Purge in real life“.
LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) — One man is dead and a Metro Police officer is on administrative leave following a shooting Saturday afternoon. LMPD Chief Steve Conrad said the officer, who he did not identify, was responding to a report of a woman assaulted in the 300 block of West Oak St. The officer saw a man matching the suspect description and approached him, said Conrad.
Moments later the officer fired two shots at the man. He was taken to University Hospital where he died from his injuries. Conrad said the officer shot the man twice in self-defense because he tried to attack the officer with a flag pole.
