Assistant police chief told a recruit to shoot Black people

Prospect's fmr. asst. chief's racial comments made public

He was suspended and then fired a year ago from the Prospect force after a letter to the mayor exposed Shaw's "highly disturbing racist and threatening Facebook messages".

Regarding "the right thing to do" after catching juveniles smoking marijuana, Shaw allegedly told the recruit: "Fuck the right thing".

"Shoot black kids" smoking weed, police chief advises recruit A former assistant police chief in Kentucky advised a recruit to "shoot" black youths smoking marijuana and to have sex with their mothers if he finds them attractive.

"When the recruit asked what to tell the victims' parents, Shaw responded: "... call their (pa) rents ... if mom is hot then fuck her ... if dad is hot then handcuff him and make him suck my dick.

Shaw had previously worked for 20 years as a Louisville police officer.

Shaw, instructing the recruit how to handle parents of a juvenile caught smoking pot, suggested performing sexual acts on the parents.

New documents have been released surrounding the circumstances that caused a former police officer to resign from his job.

But Jefferson Circuit Judge Judith McDonald Burkman ruled Thursday that they should be made public, arguing that his comments show "prejudices that bring into question Shaw's integrity as a law enforcement officer", according to The Courier-Journal.

Warriors' Splash Brothers struggle in 116-108 loss to Rockets
Throughout the game, the Rockets capitalized on their 46 rebounds and 19 turnovers by the Warriors to come out on top. Jimmy Butler led Minnesota with 23 points, and Karl-Anthony Towns added 22 points and 16 rebounds and five blocks.

"For years I have seen the blacks live off uss (sic) and putting them in one big housing area breeds HUGE peoblems (sic)" Shaw wrote.

According to Jefferson County Attorney Mike O'Connell, Shaw's behavior is unacceptable. "What has he done to people of color in our community?"

"Throughout his career, he treated all people fairly and respectfully regardless of their race", Shaw's attorney, Michael Burns, told the Courier-Journal.

LMPD Chief Steve Conrad said in a statement released to WLKY that he is "disgusted by the shocking and appalling statements" from Shaw.

So far, 24 cases in which Shaw was the sole witness have been dismissed, and the recruit Shaw sent most of those messages to dropped out of training before it was over.

Officials said more of those records were unrelated to the investigation, and Shaw was not charged in connection with that investigation.

The messages were originally discovered while Shaw was being investigated for allegedly interfering in a sexual abuse probe.

Prosecutors found the messages while screening for a separate criminal case they were exploring against Shaw.
