The news is out: [Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer on Monday announced his resignation from the state agency, Insider confirmed.
His resignation, effective Wednesday, comes just days after high school journalists in Louisville reported that the KSP as recently as 2013 used quotes from Adolf Hitler‘s “Mien Kampf” manifesto in materials used to train officers on the force.
The training materials were first reported Friday by the Manual RedEye, a student-run newspaper run at duPont Manual High School in Louisville, Kentucky. Students obtained the training materials through a local attorney who had obtained them as part of the discovery process in a lawsuit against a detective who in 2018 shot and killed a man in Harlan County, Kentucky, according to the report.
On one slide used to train new officers, trainees were instructed to act as “ruthless killer[s], to “meet violence with greater violence” and to enter a situation with a “mindset void of emotion,” the Manual RedEye reported.
On the same slide appeared a quote from “Mien Kampf,” Adolf Hitler’s fascist and anti-Semitic manifesto, reading “the very first essential for success is a perpetually constant and regular employment of violence,” according to the slideshow published by the Manual RedEye.]
Police reform will not be legit until and unless qualified immunity, no-knock warrant, chokehold, police unions are outlawed and a national database for law enforcement prevents the rehire of cops who are caught. Please remember that a good cop is one who hasn’t been caught yet. Jackbooted neo-Nazi confederate skinhead terrorist supremacist Neanderthals… in other words, cops are an extension of the KKK and white supremacy.
