TOBACCO CONTROL PROVES ITSELF A BETTER AGENCY THAN ABC ENFORCENT DESPITE BOYCE HAMLET'S BOASTING


When tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet was appointed he made incredible statements to his staff that he would make ABC Enforcement the most elite and respected law enforcement agency in the state.



Hamlet even boasted that ABC Enforcement was trying to be a better agency that the state police! 

 
That is laughable considering that Hamlet's law enforcement career only exists because he hid his hiring and firing by the Arkansas State Police (for cheating on an exam and then lying multiple times to state police investigators) from employers and filed false documents with law enforcement certification agencies in Arkansas and Mississippi.

And that fact was confirmed and pointed out by a circuit court judge who ordered the state to release the entire State Police investigation file on Hamlet.

Despite all of Hamlet's rhetoric, the  Arkansas Tobacco Control agency has bested ABC Enforcement and it is head by a former grocer, Steve Goode
 


Goode's salary is $95,050.80 and is not too shabby for someone with no related experience or any law enforcement certifications.  Hamlet's salary is $73,124.90 which is roughly $22k less that what Goode makes. Hamlet is only certified in Arkansas as a probation/parole officer and only obtained that by lying on his application with the Department of Community Corrections.

Both agencies use cooperating minors, but Tobacco Control is more polished and professional.  Maybe it is due to experienced leadership. We do know that they do not condone or tolerate lying.

Readers might recall in our post on Friday, an officer assisting the ABC to illegally entrap licensed outlets made a statement that having cooperating minors lie about their age was a common practice in alcohol and tobacco enforcement.

We don't know where Officer Turner obtained that information, but Mr. Goode with Tobacco Control provided us with information that clearly dispels that false information.








Tobacco Control takes care of business in a professional manner and Goode does not seek approval from the governor's office as does Hamlet.  Unlike Hamlet, Goode knows that even though Asa appointed him, he is working for the people of Arkansas is is responsive to them.  He has nothing to hide or to prove.


And unlike Hamlet, Goode is accessible. A true public servant.


Hamlet is an embarrassment to the honest, law abiding law enforcement officers in the State of Arkansas and to the Hutchinson administration. His departure from the position for which he has no qualifications to hold is long past overdue.

Why not send Hamlet a text message tonight telling him it's time for him to go.  501-412-6324.

Conway Police are looking for information about a fight that happend last night. Tell them we have all the tea.

  The family of a man that is a contractor for ARDOT showed their klan cards last night after a fight at Maly's Entertainment Center in Conway, AR. Michael Wade Kennedy, a convicted felon, allegedly fought with and stabbed a Black teenager outside the venue then he and his klan hurled racial epithets at the teenagers and their families. The Kennedy klan has a long association with ARDOT (formerly the Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department). Maylays advertises to "Bring the Whole Gang" and apparently that is what the Kennedy klan did. Here are videos before the fight and of the fight. In the videos you can see the convicted felon Michael Kennedy brandishing a knife.     Here are three videos that show what happened after the fight. In one of the videos you can see Kennedy holding a knife and then secreting it in a females rear pant pocket.     Michael Drew Kennedy was sentenced in 1999 to a 10 year prison sentence after he attacked a man with a knife at a club j

England High School teacher caught having sex with a 18 year old former student in a car in a park

England High teacher Courtani Bell and former student Kaylin Sullivan   On Monday January 8, 2024 at around 6 p.m., an England, AR cop caught Courtani Bell (W/F 29) a teacher at England High School engaged in "public sexual indecency" in the back seat of Bell's car in a public park with a former student, Kaylin Sullivan (B/F 18).   Here's the police report.   The court date for the randy pair is set for February 22nd in England District Court. Bell is married (for the time being as a source says he's left her) and lives in Sheridan with her hubby Layton. Bell's cuckholded hubby works at the Sheridan Police Department as a cop.   Sullivan, will turn 19 in February 2024.   There are questions surrounding the commencement of their relationship and did it began when  Sullivan was a student? We reached out to the England School District for a comment. No response was received. ### Here's the police body camera footage of the arrest. Here's a shorter version

ASP Trooper Jacob Haynie caught on his own mobile video recordings using the N-word

On November 21, 2023, after one of those questionable PIT maneuvers (the ASP now calls  Precision Immobilization Technique , or PIT maneuvers, Tactical Vehicle Intervention or TVI) ASP rookie trooper and former Hope Arkansas cop Jacob Haynie was caught on his and other ASP mobile video recordings using profanity and the N-word.   ASP policy prohibits the behavior and words Trooper Haynie uttered. That same policy also prohibits actions and behaviors that reflect unfavorably on the ASP. Haynie's wife works at the Hempstead County Assessors office. Wonder if she uses that language at work too?  ### The full videos can be viewed on many of the YouTube Channels that feature ASP videos.  A follower of one channel identifies Haynie as the one uttering the words. Apparently that individual knows Haynie and might have worked with him at Hope PD. ASP claims no one said the words "climb" or "N***a" and the trooper using the fowl language was actually Tyler Gentry. Ri
