High School Paper Busts Kentucky State Police for Using Hitler Quotes in Trainings Until 2013
Daily Beast: The Manual RedEye, the student newspaper at duPont Manual High School in Louisville, Kentucky, reported Friday that the Kentucky State Police force intentionally used quotes from Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf in training materials for new officers until 2013.
Manual Student journalists obtained a PowerPoint used in Kentucky State police training. These slides quote historical figures such as Hitler and Robert E. Lee and encourage police to be “ruthless killer[s].” Click here to learn more: https://t.co/LeRCxhg7eZpic.twitter.com/g37Z8yQWPL
A local attorney had obtained a state police slide deck via discovery in a lawsuit over a police shooting and shared the material with the paper. One slide reads, “The very first essential for success is a perpetually constant and regular employment of violence.”
This is the state where #BreonnaTaylor was killed by police, with no charges levied, and, according to a member of the grand jury, with AG Daniel Cameron not even presenting charging the officers as an option. https://t.co/aRuoO5CEzD
Another featuring a Hitler quote links to a description of the anti-Semitic fascist manifesto. Lieutenant Joshua Lawson, a spokesperson for the KSP, told the paper, “The quotes are used for their content and relevance to the topic addressed in the presentation.
The presentation touches on several aspects of service, selflessness, and moral guidance.” He neither condemned nor apologized for their inclusion, according to a screenshot of his email included in the article. Morgan Hall, the Communications Director for the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet Morgan Hall, told the RedEye, “It is unacceptable that this material was ever included in the training of law enforcement. Our administration does not condone the use of this material.
