Individuals from the Louisville, Kentucky, Metro Council, on the two sides of the aisle, are censuring examinations concerning the police-included passings of Breonna Taylor and David McAtee and requesting more straightforwardness from the city's chairman.

Government Oversight and Audit Chairman Brent Ackerson and Vice-Chairman Anthony Piagentini reported on Monday that they expect to examine Mayor Greg Fischer and his organization's treatment of the Taylor and McAtee cases, just as the utilization of power during late fights.

Ackerson, a Democrat, and Piagnentini, a Republican, have started the initial steps to propelling an examination that they intend to introduce at the chamber's July 23 gathering.

Added Ackerson: "That's the important thing, that you have 100% of the truth, the good, the bad, and even if there's something extremely ugly. You've got a right to know."

Fischer, a Democrat, is part of the way through his third term as a city hall leader. In any event, three petitions are circling web-based calling for him to leave or be terminated.

The county attorney and others, in my opinion, have hidden behind certain procedures, processes, to not release that information," Piagentini said Monday at a press conference.
