Two people were shot, one of them was killed, in downtown Louisville on June 27, according to US Police. The incident happend at around 9 p.m. (local time) in Jefferson Square Park. Forces of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department performed life-saving measures on a male victim who eventually died.

Shortly thereafter, another person shot at the Hall of Justice. The injured person was taken to University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers cleared the park completely and have secured the entire area so homicide detectives can conduct their investigation,” LMPD spokesman Lamont Washington reported. “Detectives are trying to gather as much information as possible in order to identify all who were involved in the incident.”

Jefferson Square Park has been the scene of BLM protests over the police shooting of Breonna Taylor for weeks. Thus, it has been one of the centers of violence in the city.

Riots also broke out in Seattle and Portland where protesters smashed windows in local police stations and briefly clashed with police. No officers were reportedly injured.

Meanwhile in London:

    I wonder when the US government will bring out jets tanks and use missile to bring freedom to their own people.

    Because of this, all arms in private property will be banned and 330 million Americans will only be allowed to have plastic knives for food purposes in all future to come, because of freedom.

    Because we cant have any more killings, cant we?

    Load the guns, aim to the upper body – and start shooting. After 20-30 dead protestors everything will go back to normal. I see police officers running and shouting, but don’t use any force. What a pathetic police lol.

        The Bolshevik Jews had a similar modus operandi in the Soviet Union. Which is one of the reasons that there’s 90 to 95% fewer of them in these areas now than there were then.

        Nah, it won’t get to that. The only question is how tolerant the police is going to be and for how long, before they use real force.

        • Everyone in the US is armed, if they start shooting at civilians, it would be the flashpoint

            The police and army are always stronger, but it’s best not to get to that point. Also you win Kenny, no annexation tomorrow thanks to Bibi. You know, for a moment I thought just once he will keep his word, he fooled me again. I can not wrte here what I wish would happen for him, but you can guess. 1-0 for you Kenny.

          • Gonna be honest, I was looking out for annexation tomorrow, bibi is a sellout as you said it

    The scamdemic needs to end and people need to go back to work.

    If these BLM demonstrators were legit rather than anti social malcontents looking for an excuse to cause trouble. They’d be demanding prosecution for the killer cops and legislative and judicial changes to get the problem corrected so that it’s not recurring and the victims get justice.

      Instead these idiots demand defunding the police and spending money in black communities. When the problem is killer cops who kill twice as many white people as black people, and the same percentage of white people per law enforcement incident as black people, who are involved in much higher per capita law enforcement incidents than white people. Usually at the complaint of black victims of black crime.

      “We call for an end to the systemic racism that allows this culture of corruption to go unchecked and our lives to be taken.

      We call for a national defunding of police. We demand investment in our communities and the resources to ensure Black people not only survive, but thrive. If you’re with us, add your name to the petition right now and help us spread the word.”

    They’ve turned the lights in the park where the CHOP camp is. There are quite a few people here tonight.

    There are a lot of people walking around with weapons like machetes and baseball bats and wearing makeshift body armor. Some of whom are patrolling outside of the zone.

    None of the barriers have come down. Looking out of the CHOP zone from behind a barrier.

    It looks like the population of the CHOP zone has bottomed out and a more militant element is entrenching itself there. Some of the expaned perimeter barries are gone. But the zone overall is as large or larger than it originally was.

    I don’t think that some of these people are planning to leave voluntarily. And that the Mayor is misrepresenting the possibility that they’re going to.
