Breonna Taylor: Does Louisville mayor know the police will go free? – declares state of emergency

In addition, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer signed two executive orders — one that declares a state of emergency “due to the potential for civil unrest” and another restricting some vehicular access downtown, according to a statement released by his office Tuesday afternoon.
While the city is under a state of emergency, the mayor may exercise “any of his emergency powers, including those to hire or contract for services, and implementing curfews and other restrictions,” the city announcement said.
