Mayor orders review of Kentucky city’s police after violence

Louisville Protests

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville’s mayor says the Kentucky city will seek an independent review of its police department amid protests over the deaths of black people during encounters with law enforcement. Mayor Greg Fischer said Wednesday that the city will look to hire an outside group to perform a “comprehensive, top-to-bottom review.” The evaluation comes two days after the shooting death of a black man as police and National Guard tried to enforce a curfew. Protesters are demanding justice for Breonna Taylor, a black woman who was shot and killed by police in her home in Louisville in March. The police chief was fired after officers involved in the man’s shooting failed to active their body cameras.
