Yvette Gentry, yesterday, held a press conference, in Louisville, Kentucky, where she was named interim police chief of the Louisville Metro Police Department. Her hiring comes, as the current police chief has retired, in the wake of the Breonna Taylor murder, which took place during his watch. The city has now hired a black woman to run the police department, a move some feel is questionable, but also fitting, for the moment.
