The transcript of Judge Mackie Pierce's ruling in the case involving the release of the Arkansas State Police investigation file of Boyce Hamlet, reveals Judge Pierce questioning the continued employment of Hamlet at the ABC or elsewhere in law enforcement.

After reviewing the file in question in the hearing, Judge Pierce stated that the Plaintiff's argument was more persuasive than that of the Defense and that "when the record reflects a breach of trust or an illegal conduct by public employees", "the public's interest in disclosure is compelling".  Judge Pierce further stated "I'm going to tell you, after a review of the records, I think that the reason for his termination certainly goes to the issue of -- of a trust issue or a -- an honesty issues that I find compelling today because of his position".

Judge Pierce also stated that as argued by the Plaintiff, Hamlet had not truthfully disclosed his hiring and firing by the state police and that if he had, he would not probably be the director of ABC Enforcement. 

The defense did not refute the Plaintiff's assertions in his complaint or in his presentation to the court that Hamlet had lied about his employment history on employment applications and on forms submitted to the Arkansas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Training, a violation of state laws.

The public deserves an answer from DFA director Larry Walther's (he refuses to make comments) and Governor Asa Hutchinson (he refuses to make comments as well) as to how they can keep Hamlet on as an employee in light of Judge Pierce's finding that Hamlet is a habitual liar and suffers from a lack of truthfulness and honesty and his employment at the ABC poses problems for the ABC (Brady Officer).

Disgraced ex-LRPD cop and felon lied on her employment application to get job with Arkansas State Police

In 2009, Sheva Howard was a Little Rock cop. She began working at LRPD in 2001 as a Crime Scene Specialist and in 2003 she became a police officer. Howard also worked off-duty, in her LRPD uniform, at Dillard's until she was caught in an act of thievery.  Howard purchased one purse, but it was in a bag so heavy she had to drag it on the ground. That bag was later found to have multiple purses packed into another purse. That incident also ended her career as a cop and gained her a felony conviction.   The LRPD Internal Investigation file reads like a script from an episode of Law & Order.   Howard was found to be untruthful during the internal investigation.   Here's what the local newspaper published about her criminal trial. Howard's supervisor at Dillard's was Willie Robinson. It just so happened that Robinson was and is also an Arkansas State Trooper.   Howard tried to have her conviction overturned but the Arkansas Court of Appeals upheld her conviction.   After

Three LRPD cops "relieved of duty" over incident at Club Trois

Sources at LRPD have confirmed a tip we received that three LRPD cops, Brad Stewart, Lee Pitts and Justin Sims have been "relieved of duty" in connection with an incident at Club Trois. The story we were told is that Stewart was working off-duty at Club Trois and dealt with an inebriated female club patron by soaking her with pepper spray.  LRPD General Order  ("G.O.") 303 requires that a cop that uses physical force, non-lethal control and compliance devices, on or off-duty, follow certain procedures. Use of pepper spray is a Level 4 event. Here are the specific procedures. LRPD sources tell us that they are trained to call MEMS after they use pepper spray or a taser on an individual. They are to file an incident report and they file an officer's report or letter form (5600-2) with their immediate supervisor for each use of force incident. Here's an example of an officer letter form.   Not a single procedure was followed in this incident. And to make matter
