David Hastings, was a part-time police officer in Bethal Heights, until he made some questionable posts on Facebook.



 This is the photo that Hastings claims was "retarded".


Not only is Hastings a dumbass, he is ignorant of the law. Arkansas Code Annotated 21-1-106 gives any citizen the right to observe and record public events.  That means anyone can record the police make an arrest or while they beat the crap out of someone.

Hastings' posts went viral and the Bethal Heights Police Department was inundated with complaints from all over the world.

Surprisingly, the Bethal Height Police Department fired Hastings and made the announcement on Facebook. Karma at its finest.

Bethal Heights Police Department spokeswoman Corporal Chastity Mahan told a reporter with KFSM-TV that "[The posts] completely caught me blindsided, because I would not see this with this officer." Cpl. Mahan, added,  "You cannot be discriminatory on Facebook, you cannot cause public alarm. When you work for the public, and are in the public view, you need to be careful of everything that comes out of your mouth. You are a public servant, and you just need to be careful."

A facebooker noticed that Hastings also worked at Steve Landers Scion and contacted them about Hastings viral posts.

The dealership told the facebooker that if Hastings wanted to keep his job with them, he would have to "get off Facebook".

We hope the Bethal Heights Police Department recommends that Hastings loose his law enforcement certification when they send the Arkansas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards & Training ("CLEST") his F-4 form.



Here are documents we obtained from the Bethal Heights PD.  They did not recommend decertification so Hasting may show up at another department.

The Bryant Police Department confirms an on-going investigation of a now former Bryant teacher, Heather Danielle (Hall) Hare. Hare (age 32) has been accused of sexual contact with a student.  Hare was featured on ABC Good Morning America in May 2020 when a course she taught was discontinued during the pandemic. At this point no details of the alleged illegal conduct have been released. Earlier today the school district posted this on a Bryant Schools Facebook page. According to on-line school board records, Hare submitted her resignation effective April 1, 2023.     Hare is married and is a resident of Conway, AR. KATV featured the Hare family in another story on October 31, 2022. Stay tuned for updates.

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

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
