A video released by the Louisville Police Department (LMPD) shows Democrat Mayor Greg Fisher being brutally beaten by an unknown assailant in broad daylight over the weekend.
Fisher can be seen in footage standing along the sidewalk as a man approaches and kills the mayor without warning.
“Earlier this evening, while on Fourth Street Live, Mayor (Greg) Fischer was punched by a man,” the department said in a Facebook post. “The mayor is doing well.”
Although it is unclear what Fischer did during the brazen attack, Fourth Street hosted Juneteenth-weekend events.

Fischer has been mayor of Louisville for more than a decade since taking office in January 2011. Due to term constraints, he is unable to run again.

“Rethinking” public safety
Fischer rejected calls for the “release of the police” in Louisville, but proposed a platform for “rethinking public safety”, which includes a pilot program for “diversion” 911 is calling to non-police response, “focused on problem solving, de-escalation and targeting appropriate public services”.
It would be interesting to know how 911’s calls went when people around the mayor were trying to get a police response to Greg Fisher’s attack.
On December 1, 2020, Fischer declared racism a public health crisis in Louisville. Oddly enough, the tweets of the police department show images of the suspect, but do not bother to mention his race.

Earlier this year, Louisville was the site of another horrific crime when Black Lives Matter (BLM) activist Quintez Brown was arrested for the assassination attempt on Democratic candidate Craig Greenberg.
Brown was charged with attempted murder and four counts of unreasonable threat after entering Greenberg’s office and he started firing to him.
No one was injured in the crash, although a bullet reportedly destroyed Greenberg’s shirt.
