    A Lack Of Accountability - E2

    A Lack Of Accountability - E2

    Police leadership in the Louisville Metro Police Department first heard of officers in their ranks sexually abusing teens in 2013. For years, the allegations went nowhere. Was it ineptitude and simple negligence, or something more nefarious, like corruption and a cover-up? In the second episode in our four-part series, we talk to local politicians and lawyers who detail the prolonged lack of accountability around the sex abuse scandal in the department. This installment of “Derby City Betrayal” untangles the nuance of efforts by county attorneys and police leadership to avoid accountability for the abuses that allegedly happened under their watch.

    Sneak Peek: Alchemy of Violence: Narcos, Reapers, and Survival

    Sneak Peek: Alchemy of Violence: Narcos, Reapers, and Survival

    * Available July 12, 2021 on Fox News Podcasts+ via Apple Podcasts Subscriptions.

    In this multi-part podcast, “Alchemy of Violence: Narcos, Reapers and Survival,” host and Marine Staff Sgt. Johnny Joey Jones will guide you through a series of wide-ranging interviews with Ed Calderon, a former paramilitary law enforcement officer from Mexico who took on the country's ruthless drug cartels face-to-face at a time when their gruesome violence was reaching a fever pitch in 2006 and beyond. Calderon’s dangerous career south of the border, and the rampant corruption he says came with it, ultimately forced him to run for his life. It also left him with a lifetime's worth of on-the-ground experience, and a set of unique survival skills akin to a real-life McGuyver, just a few years shy of his 40th birthday. In his own words, Calderon shares intimate details on everything from his childhood and family inspiration, to the horrors he witnessed firsthand in his career, and how he’s using those experiences now to help others who might be recovering from similar traumas –a new career in what he calls his “after-life.”

Crazy

I’ve lived in Louisville for 8 years. I recently wondered why the LMPD is so short handed and now i know the truth. Excellent coverage of the horrific misconduct of public servants.

Wow

What a terrible story. I’m not sure the motive behind the bad reviews. One stating they simply read articles to you. There are interviews with victims so that’s clearly untrue
