Violence by Extremists Is ‘Likely’ Following Supreme Court’s Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade, DHS Memo Warns

U.S. Supreme Court

By Steve Neavling

Homeland Security warned in a memo about the heightened risk of domestic violent extremism in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. 

The memo, obtained by CBS News, says extremists “will likely exploit” the ruling to “intensify violence against a wide range of targets.”

“Most at risk” are state and federal officials, along with their buildings.

The memo refers to recent attacks by an abortion-rights group, as well as an attempted plot to murder Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. 

“We expect violence could occur for weeks following the release, particularly as (domestic violent extremists) may be mobilized to respond to changes in state laws and ballot measures on abortion stemming from the decision,” the memo states. 

FBI Investigating 8 Cases of Potential Misconduct Involving Louisville Police

By Steve Neavling

The FBI is investigating eight cases of potential misconduct involving the Louisville Metro Police Department, the Louisville Courier Journal reports.

The FBI’s Louisville Field Office is leading the investigations. 

Most of the cases follow the shooting death of Breonna Taylor, an unarmed Black woman who was killed by Louisville police in March 2020. 

Many of the cases involve the police department’s handling of protests over Taylor’s death. 

The oldest case is five years old and involves a sex abuse scandal in the department’s Explorer Scout program. The allegations came to light in a lawsuit filed by a 22-year-old who accused two officers of abuse. 

The officers also are accused of propositioning, molesting or intimidating more than a dozen former Scouts in the program. 

A decision in that case is expected soon. 

The FBI and Civil Rights Division in Washington D.C. are still investigating the death of Taylor.
