20th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Cody Hiland has a double standard for tainted ABC Enforcement Director and former employee Boyce Hamlet and other law enforcement officers that have issues with telling the honesty and credibility.

In a letter Hiland sent to Mayflower Police Chief Robert Alcon dated Aug. 22, 2014, Prosecuting Attorney Cody Hiland said his office would no longer accept felony case submissions from an officer that had issues with credibility.

“When someone withholds what we consider exculpatory, that’s huge in the prosecutorial world,” the letter reads.


This blog undercovered Boyce Hamlet's attempt to hide and coverup his hiring and firing from the Arkansas State Police for cheating on an exam and then lying multiple times to ASP special investigators.  We also found that Hamlet  provided false information to Hiland when he applied for a job. 

Hiland  failed to make the required statutory inquiry to the Arkansas Commission for Law Enforcement Training and Standards to see why Hamlet left employment with previous law enforcement agencies in Arkansas and hired Hamlet, who had documented issues with honesty and credibility.

Law enforcement officers that have issues with credibility and honesty are considered Brady Officers. Prosecutors have a legal obligation to notify criminal defendants about officers that are Brady Officers

Usually classification as a Brady Officer is a death penalty for a career in law enforcement. In Hamlet's case no one seems to give a crap.  

So we are suing Halmet and his employer, the Department of Finance and Administration using a little known provision in the Arkansas Constitution.

If our lawsuit is successful, Hamlet will lose his job and have to pay back all funds he has received as salary for a position for which he does not even meet the minimum qualifications. And DFA knew he didn't meet them or sure as hell should have known that he didn't.

Stay tuned for more information. 


Look for a story to soon appear about the apparent illegal use of federal funds by Cody Hiland on our blog bad government in Arkansas -

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

Pulaski County Department headed by State Senator Fred Love is in trouble.

By Russ Racop On July 31st we broke the story that there was an internal investigation afoot at the Pulaski County office of Community Services.   A recipient of Section 8 HVC vouchers contacted us on that same day for assistance and we began our investigation.   Her landlord contacted her and told her she had three days to get out of her apartment because she had fraudulently obtained assistance.    The landlord had been contacted by Love's staff before she had. She didn't understand what was going on because she just moved into the apartment and had been vetted and approved for assistance by Love's department. It's not the first time someone has reached out to us about Fred Love and that county department.  Love also serves in the state legislature as a Senator. We have received allegations and some records about sexual and workplace harassment, malfeasance and misuse of county resources involving Love. We immediately called the number listed on that rent payment noti
