    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The city of Louisville will pay several million dollars to the mother of Breonna Taylor and install police reforms as part of a settlement of a lawsuit from Taylor’s family, The Associated Press has learned. The settlement would be the largest sum paid by the city for a police misconduct case, according to a person who has seen the settlement. The person asked to not be identified because the settlement has not been announced publicly. Taylor’s shooting by police serving a narcotics warrant at her home has sparked months of protests in Louisville and calls nationwide...
  • Rand Paul: We must get kids back to school

    The Hull ^ | Sep 10 | Sen. Rand Paul
    Labor Day has passed, and in most years, the entire country would now be back to school. Kids would be learning, catching up with old friends, and swapping stories from the summer. Teachers would have decorated and readied themselves for a year of struggles and smiles, learning and community. Traffic is always heaviest this time of year, because of school buses full of kids, and parents going to work, returning from summer vacations. But in far too many places, including much of Kentucky, this is not the reality. There are no buses, no kids in classrooms, and few smiles. It...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Breitbart News exclusively on Thursday that the leftist mob that surrounded him on his way out of the White House after President Donald Trump’s Republican National Convention (RNC) speech last week, along with other leftist violence in Democrat-controlled cities, could be a game-changer in this election. Asked to reflect on what happened to him and his wife Kelley Paul last Thursday, video of which Breitbart News captured on scene, Paul said that rioters and people who break the law will continue to do so until they face consequences for their actions. “People who act this...

    Following the death of George Floyd in May, a bipartisan national consensus emerged that serious criminal justice reforms were needed. This put emphasis on an issue that already had broad spectrum support. Polling shows that a clear majority of Americans support reforms such as ending “no-knock” search warrants, limiting police use of chokeholds, eliminating the civil liability shield for abusive police officers, mandating dashboard and body cameras, and more. In fact, even a majority of police officers support these reforms. So why hasn’t Congress actually accomplished anything? Well, the disturbing saga that just played out featuring Sen. Rand Paul reveals...
  • Mayor Slams Breonna Taylor Article ‘Unpublished’ By Courier Journal

    Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer described an article linked to the Breonna Taylor case that was published briefly on the Courier Journal’s website on Tuesday as “reckless” in an unsolicited statement sent to news media Tuesday morning. Shortly after the article was published, the Courier Journal’s editor removed it from the website, later saying it was “prematurely published” and didn’t meet the newspaper’s standards for publication. The article was published again at 5:23 p.m. The article alleged close connections between Taylor and an ex-boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover, who police have accused of dealing drugs, and who was a focus of the investigation...
  • Rand Paul comes out against Trump's payroll tax deferral: 'Probably a mistake'

    The Week ^ | Aug 20 | Kathryn Krawczyk
    President Trump's payroll tax deferral is effectively dead. Pretty much no one, Senate Republicans included, wanted to put a payroll tax cut Trump was pushing for in the next coronavirus relief bill. And Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) seemingly put the final nail in the coffin on Thursday as he told Fox News it's "probably a mistake" to do so. Paul, a libertarian who reliably opposes any expansion of government spending, stuck to his guns on Thursday when he opposed the "skinny" CARES Act Republicans are starting to push as coronavirus relief talks remain stalled. A pared down package is "just...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Members of Louisville’s Metro Council have asked Mayor Greg Fischer to step down from office. A resolution asking for his resignation was filed Monday morning. It was sponsored by several council members who said they feel frustrated with Fischer’s handling of the protesting and rioting; sky-rocketing numbers of homicides, shootings and car-jackings; a lack of transparency about the Breonna Taylor case and the problems with the city’s police department, among other issues.

    Rep. Thomas Massie tested COVID-negative last week but wants to donate his plasma to help coronavirus patients recover from their sicknesses after taking an antibody test and discovering he previously had the sickness. The Kentucky Republican, 49, told the Washington Examiner he suspects he first contracted the virus back in early January. However, he does not know where he may have gotten it from at the time. “I was sick for four days with a fever and a sore throat and very little energy. I had super low energy. I went to the doctor on Jan. 7, and I told...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Friday that more than a third of Republican senators will not vote for any coronavirus relief package, underscoring division with his caucus. "I think there are 15-20 of my guys that are not going to vote for anything. ... It's a statement of the obvious that we will not have everybody on our side," McConnell told WHAS, a Kentucky radio station. McConnell's estimate comes as congressional Democrats and the administration are struggling to reach an agreement after days of talks about a potential fifth coronavirus package as cases climb across the country and...
