Tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet takes a break from playing solitaire to check email

ABC Enforcement agents that were forced to resign or retire (Chandler, Lynch and Kruse) by deplorable Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet were able to receive payment for unused annual and sick leave. These payout totaled approximately $22,000.00.

When an individual retires from state employment, and according to the Office of Personnel Management the definition of retirement is "an employee's withdrawal from the service of a public employer, with an annuity payable from funds of the employee's retirement system", the state allows for employees to be paid for unused annual, sick and holiday time earned.

An employee that is fired or quits is paid for accrued and unused annual and holiday time, but when an employee quits or gets fired, they are not entitled to payment for accrued and unused sick leave.

Other ABC employees that left the agency also received payouts:

-Former ABC Administration Director and outed Ashley Madison customer, Michael Langley,  who was not re-appointed received a payout in the amount of $11, 380.68.

-Former ABC Enforcement Director Carl Kirkland who retired to make room for unqualified and tainted Boyce Hamlet received a payout in the amount of $8,218.53.  

-Former ABC Deputy Director and admitted lawbreaker, Rick Crisman, received a payout of $ 6, 331.46. Crisman was given a choice to resign or be fired.

-Former ABC Enforcement Agent and currently a Deputy with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office, Jerrell Smith received a payout (annual leave only) in the amount of $2,893.02. Smith was fired for accepting a tazer, which is a violation of state laws (Good luck with that Ethics Commission complaint Deputy Smith).

Other ABC employee payouts totaled $3,496,98 (Hickman and Endsley). The total amount of all payouts was $53,927.52.

These unplanned payouts were offset by the ABC hiring new less experienced agents, at a much lower starting salary (under $35k a year).


We were saddened to learn of the passing of former ABC Enforcement Agent Bill Lynch.  Lynch for all practical purposes ran ABC Enforcement prior to the questionable appointment of Boyce Hamlet as director of Enforcement and his forced retirement.  Condolences to Mr. Lynch's family and friends.

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
