The Mayor of Louisville recently described this occurrence as “our worst nightmare.” In Louisville Kentucky, two police officers were charged for their actions in the Louisville Metro Police Department’s Youth Explorer Program. After a six-month investigation, the Jefferson County grand jury charged Officer Brandon Wood on seven counts of sexual abuse, each punishable by up to five years in prison, and former Officer Kenneth Betts on two counts of sodomy, one of which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years.

This case is significant because it displays that police officers don’t only make mistakes in terms of brutality in the streets but they also partake in unjust matters in something as simple as an elementary school program, as well.
