The Independent: “The Louisville Metro Council’s Government Oversight and Audit Committee (GOA) filed an order to officially launch the investigation ‘into the action and inaction of the Fischer Administration.”
Mayor Greg Fischer of Louisville, Kentucky, is to be investigated for his handling of the Breonna Taylor case, the death of David McAtee, and the protests that followed that have seen hundreds of arrests.
The Louisville Metro Council’s Government Oversight and Audit Committee (GOA) filed an order to officially launch the investigation “into the action and inaction of the Fischer Administration,” according to a statement.
Breonna Taylor was killed by police on 13 March when Louisville Metro officers carried out a narcotics raid on her home.
The emergency medical technician had been asleep when the officers entered her apartment and was shot eight times when they confronted her boyfriend. No drugs were found on the property.
Anger at the death of the 26-year-old led to demonstrations both locally and then nationwide demanding the officers involved be arrested.
David McAtee was fatally shot as police and the Kentucky National Guard broke up a large crowd of protesters in June.
