Louisville, KY has the luck to have some of the stupidest local politicians of any larger city on the planet. This may sound a bit strong and you doubtlessly think that you could find stupider politicians. Read on, and then decide.

Because of a recent police shooting (by which they mean a police officer shot someone, not vice versa) that has raised a local uproar from a professional troublemaker and his ilk, a city councilman has introduced legislation that would prohibit a police officer from firing more than 2 times at a suspect, and then only if the suspect first fired at the officer. Having the gun out and pointed at an innocent doesn't count. Actually, shooting an innocent who wasn't next to the police officer wouldn't count.

This is in addition to normal politician stupidity like not being able to balance the budget but wanted to build a basketball arena for a professional team that isn't going to come to Louisville and that the citizens have loudly said they don't want and can't afford to buy tickets to when they thought it would come. Now that the team said Louisville was out, there are still some who want to build a downtown arena to use it as an attraction for a different (unknown) team. It could just sit empty for decades, though.

They tried to paint the Kennedy Memorial bridge connecting Indiana and Kentucky at I-65. It was partially painted and then the whole deal (deal, not bridge) collapsed as bribery charges and inspector bribes came out of the woodwork. They've also spent over $27 million dollars "studying" wear to build a new bridge, although the designers of the road built the locations for future bridges into the plans.

It must be tough living in Louisville, especially when you can stare across the river and into the promised land. :D

The thing about stupid politions is they make stupid laws. I have never gotten to vote on any law. I say let the people vote on laws. Things would be a lot different!

Does the officer have to keep the 2 pieces of ammo in his pocketand load them one at a time? In these day and the great politicians we have I would'nt be surprised.:rolleyes:

Docwagon,
If that's your worst politician, consider yourself blessed! I dare offer a bet, Kalifornia has the most incompetent managers of a state's finances!

Next week, we'll probably get a downgrading of our credit rating. Stay tuned folks! If you believe Kalifornia leads the nation, then get ready for bankruptcy!

There's only one political party in this state. That's Democrats! Watch Kalifornia become the first state to be insolvent! Yay Democrats!

Really a shame for the good LEO's, and I do still believe there's plenty of 'em. Not a job I'd want in these days and times.

They've got too many restrictions now for them to do a decent job.

Doc and Outdoors,
A young friend of mine joined with the Santa Clara Police Department about 18 months ago. I never said a negative word about his decision. If any person on this planet is smart enough, is good enough, is moral enough, and is motivated enough to be a good officer, it is that man. I pray that I did not do wrong by him.

He could've been an engineer, but I guess it wasn't inspiring enough. So he jumped the boat and followed a dream. God bless him and his wife.

That is a strange proposal indeed. Why did they not mandate that the person engaged in illegal activity cannot shoot but twice at whatever person (cop, home owner) they intend to hurt? I would have added that the perp cannot use the sights and must start with an empty chamber.
