Lamonte McIntyre hearing: innocent man imprisoned, family, experts …

On the day Lamonte McIntyre was sentenced to consecutive life terms in prison, he said just 13 words to the court:

“Judge, I would like to tell the court that I’m innocent. That’s all.”

On Thursday, more than two decades later, McIntyre’s family and friends poured into a Wyandotte County courtroom for a hearing that has called into question his conviction.

McIntyre, now 41, smiled at the approximately 50 friends and relatives who had assembled in the courtroom as he entered.

He’s an innocent man who has languished in prison for 23 years, his loved ones say. In a rally outside the courthouse beforehand, they cried: “I say free, you say Lamonte.”

“Free!”

“Lamonte!”

Experts warn against teaching the phrase ‘stranger danger’

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is now encouraging parents to steer away from using the phrase “stranger danger,” a slogan that has been taught for decades to emphasize to children the potential threat posed by strangers.

“It’s so easy, it rhymes,” Callahan Walsh, a child advocate at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, told ABC News. “It’s just this one phrase, blanket statement, but it really doesn’t fit all scenarios and that’s why we want to re-think stranger danger.”

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is now encouraging parents to steer away from using the phrase “stranger danger,” a slogan that has been taught for decades to emphasize to children the potential threat posed by strangers.

Although the group moved away from “stranger danger” years ago, the phrase is so pervasive that many parents still teach it. The group renewed their call to end its use on “Good Morning America” today.

Hundreds of crime-prevention experts converge on Louisville

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – At least 400 brilliant minds in crime analysis are in Louisville for the 26th annual International Crime Analysts Conference, where experts will share tactics, strategies and new technology to help solve crime.

Now that the conference is in Louisville, LMPD officials are taking full advantage of the opportunity to find new ways to help solve violent crime locally.

“It’s a way to network with other analysts across the country to find out how other units are doing things, what kind of technologies they’re using that we could probably bring back here, and that might be able to help us do different things,” LMPD Sgt. Holly Rogers said. 

Rogers manages the team of 19 analysts who work within the Louisville Metro Police Department. A year of violent crime means Rogers is constantly looking for new strategies in prevention, like predictive policing or forecasting for policing.
