Shortly before the non-indictment in Breonna Taylor’s murder, a private email from a Major in the Louisville Metro Police Department was made public. The email contained some unkind words toward those protesting for justice in Breonna’s murder but of course were disguised as the BLM movement and the ever-present ‘Antifa’.
“These ANTIFA and BLM people, especially the ones who just jumped on the bandwagon ‘yesterday’ because they became ‘woke’ (insert eye roll here), do not deserve a second glance or thought from us,” it continues. “Our little pinky toenails have more character, morals, and ethics, than these punks have in their entire body.”
“Do not stoop to their level. Do not respond to them. If we do, we only validate what they did. Don’t make them important, because they are not. They will be the ones washing our cars, cashing us out at the Walmart, or living in their parents’ basement playing COD for their entire life.”
Before we get into the serious stuff, this email reminds me of the rant Jay went on in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
Back to the matter at hand, this is a high-ranking member of the LMPD disparaging those seeking justice for someone that her department killed for no real reason. How many ‘bad apples’ are currently working for the LMPD? And then they wonder why people say the fix was in when it came to the fact that no one has been charged with Breonna’s murder.
But getting back to the Police Major, what kind of admonishment do you think she received after this email was made public? She’s being allowed to retire at the start of October. I bet that comes along with a nice police pension as well. Try not to spend it all at the car wash.
Thanks to Lady Gray for the tip.
