Senior Kentucky police official instructed recruit to shoot black teens for smoking weed

Published

on

The former assistant police chief of Prospect, Kentucky once instructed a recruit to shoot black people if he caught them smoking marijuana.

As Louisville’s WDRB reported Friday, Todd Shaw, the ex-assistant police chief of the suburban Louisville police department, sent a number of “highly disturbing racist and threatening Facebook messages” to a recruit.

When asked by the recruit what the “right thing to do” would be if he found three teens smoking marijuana (as per an assignment), Shaw wrote back that the recruit should disregard right and wrong.

“F— the right thing,” Shaw wrote, according to newly-unsealed court records. “If black shoot them.”

When the recruit followed up with questions about what to tell the theoretical teens’ parents, Shaw doubled down.

“Call their (pa)rents,” he wrote. “If mom is hot then f— her … if dad is hot then handcuff him and make him suck my d—.”

“Unless daddy is black,” Shaw continued. “Then shoot him.”

The former police official resigned from his post late last year amid investigations into his conduct, and has fought to keep the messages, which are part of the public record under Kentucky law, away from the press. This week, however, Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Judith McDonald-Burkman ruled that the messages must be released to the public.

President Donald Trump on Monday once again launched an attack on Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in an angry Twitter tirade.

"The 'Squad' is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart," the president wrote. "They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border...And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!"

Vogue editor Anna Wintour refuses to talk about Melania Trump so she can lavish praise on Michelle Obama

Published

Vogue editor and fashion doyenne Anna Wintour had little good to say about current First Lady Melania Trump in an interview with the Economist, choosing instead to lavish praise on Michelle Obama as the "best ambassador this country could possibly have."

In the interview, which can be heard below, Anna McElvoy wanted to talk about Melania but Wintour seemed to have no interest in the former fashion model from Slovenia who is currently the third wife of Donald Trump.

“[Melania] I think, very consciously, wanted to see herself as an ambassador for British fashion, in this case, or a transatlantic ambassador,” McElvoy asked, pointing to the first lady's recent trip to the U.K. “I mean, do you value that?”

Published

on

Disgraced former PBS host Charlie Rose and accused billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein allegedly had conversations about women whom Rose should hire and whom he would then go on to sexually harass.

New York Magazine reporter Irin Carmon has a bombshell story about Epstein's call logs that show his regular interactions with multiple powerful men during a time when prosecutors say he was running a sex trafficking ring for underage girls.

Of particular interest are his calls with Rose, who was fired by PBS in 2017 after multiple women came forward to accuse him of being a serial sexual harasser.
