Breonna Taylor Deal Promises Reform Police Said They Did Years Ago

Breonna Taylor Deal Promises Reform Police Said They Did Years Ago

A Newsy-KYCIR investigation found that Louisville Metro Police repeatedly reported using a tool to flag officer behavior, but never implemented it.

As part of its historic, $12 million settlement with the family of Breonna Taylor, Louisville has agreed to implement several major police reforms, including creating an early warning system to identify officer behavioral trends to prevent misconduct.

This is not the first time the city has made such a promise. In the wake of police shootings and as a response to critical audits, the Louisville Metro Police Department has frequently asserted that it already has such a system, or is on the cusp of implementing one.

The current LMPD policy manual says it is actively using such a system. But itís not, a joint investigation by Newsy and the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting has found.

Ron Cobb, a Designer on Star Wars, Back to the Future, and Alien, Dies at 83

Source: Gizmodo

Ron Cobb, one of the most prolific and impactful designers in cinema history, died this week at the age of 83.

Cobb is a name thatís well-known to film nerds, but maybe not so much to the general public. Thatís wild, considering he worked on some of the most successful and influential films from the 1970s, Ď80s, and Ď90s: Star Wars, Alien, Back to the Future, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Conan the Barbarian, The Abyss, The Last Starfighter, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, to name just a few.

On Star Wars, he designed some of the creatures in the Cantina scene, including the Hammerhead. On Back to the Future, he helped refine the design of the DeLorean to give it the DIY look that made it so memorable. For Alien, he did the exterior and interior of the main setting, the Nostromo. He helped Steven Spielberg come up with the idea for E.T. and had a cameo in the film. He designed all the ships in The Last Starfighter. We could go on and on.

"If you ever talk to my son like that again . . . "




From that Davis Guggenheim-produced video about Joe Biden that was shown tonight . . .


When he entered school, there was a problem: Joe had a stutter.

"And it is mortifying, it allows that child to become an object of ridicule." And when his teacher mimicked him, Joe ran home from school. His mother drove him back.

"Did you say to my son, 'Mr. Buh-buh-biden'?"

The nun said, "I was just trying to make a point."

And my mother stood up, all five feet two of her, "If you ever talk to my son like that again, I'll come back and rip that damn bonnett off your head, do you understand me? Joey, go back to class."
