In other news, Louisville, Kentucky, Police Chief Steve Conrad has been fired after it emerged two officers who were at the scene of a fatal shooting early Monday morning did not have their body cameras activated — a violation of police department policy. Both police and the National Guard fired shots at a crowd on Monday, which killed David McAtee, whose body then reportedly lay in the streets of Louisville for over 12 hours. David McAtee owned a local barbecue business and was a beloved figure in the community who regularly gave police officers free meals. Louisville Police Chief Steve Conrad had already announced his plan to retire this month in the wake of the Louisville police killing of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African American woman. She was shot to death by police inside her own apartment in March. Taylor was an EMT and emergency room technician, as well as an aspiring nurse.
