  • Louisville lawmaker introduces hate crime legislation


    Bowling Green Daily News

    A Louisville lawmaker has introduced legislation that would make it a hate crime to attack police, firefighters and emergency medical responders.

    House Bill 14 would allow a person to be found to have committed a hate crime if that person intentionally targeted a victim based on his or her employment or perceived employment in one of those fields. It can then be used as a sentencing factor if a court finds that a hate crime was the motivating factor of one of many felony offenses included within the bill.

    As winter gets into full swing, remember fire and carbon monoxide poisoning are real concerns that come with staying warm.

    According to the National Fire Protection Association, between 2009 and 2013, U.S. fire departments responded each year to an average of 56,000 home structure fires that involved heating equipment. Space heaters are the most common type of heating equipment involved in home fires, accounting for 40 percent of all fires, and more importantly, 84 percent of non-firefighter deaths.
