Louisville officers fired/demoted for exposing a wrongful conviction

LOUISVILLE, KY — When an esteemed police detective discovered that an innocent woman had spent years in prison for a murder she didn’t commit, he notified his supervisors and tried to make the tragic error known. Instead of seeing that the new evidence came to light, police brass demoted the whistleblower and kicked out of his unit. Another veteran officer stood up for the whistleblower, earning him termination from the department after decades of service. The Louisville Metropolitan Police Department has taken nefarious steps to hide a dark secret.

Detective Baron Morgan of the LMPD stumbled upon the wrongful conviction during a routine interview with a suspect in 2012. During that interview, the suspect confessed to a shooting a man and dumping his body into the Kentucky River in 1998. This posed a big problem, since the person sitting in prison for that murder was a woman named Susan Jean King.

Susan King had been arrested for the crime in 2007, after the murder case had gone unsolved for 8 years. The victim, Kyle Breedon, was King’s ex-boyfriend. When prosecutors threatened her with life in prison due to circumstantial evidence, she entered an “Alford Plea” on a lesser charge. A defendant who gives this type of plea does not admit guilt of the crime, but accepts the consequences, since battling the prosecution would likely lead to worse results. As such, King accepted a 10-year sentence for manslaughter to avoid the prosecutors’ threats of life in prison. But all along, they had been threatening the wrong person.

F*ck The Law.

Things You Love To Do But Suck At Doing

White Men Cant Jump

Here’s a little Sunday humor for you. We have all have this issue. Some people just might not want to get off of their high horse and admit it. We’re not talking to them. I’m talking to you! There are just those things that we love to do but suck at doing. Like me for instance, I wish I could sing all of the songs I love but unfortunately I sound like a screeching dying cat when I attempt to. Or that I could play basketball like my mom or my brother because although I do well at other sports, I seem to have problem excelling in “the family sport”. What is something that you love to do but suck at doing?
