Louisville PD apologizes for targeting news crew at protest

Louisville PD has apologized after a video showed a police officer firing what appeared to be pepper balls at a news crew during a live broadcast. The crew from WAVE-TV was downtown in the Kentucky city Friday, covering demonstrations over the death of Breonna Taylor. ’It’s not something that should have occurred’, Louisville police spokeswoman said.

What makes a journalist so entitled that they can wander into a riot and then get upset when they get hit with collateral damage. I don't give a single care in the world how many press badges someone has, if you are in a dangerous place then dangerous things will happen. Don't stand in the road, don't argue with police, don't casually wander through a riot.

The sad part is with how garbage CNN has become I could honestly see them putting themselves into the line of fire of these pepperballs for ratings and/or pushing a narrative.

Everyone who is saying that the police shouldn’t apologies go live in Russia or China if you don’t want freedom of the press.
