Tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet has targeted a Little Rock liquor store, Pic Pac, and has made no secret that he wants to close it down.

We have made a couple of posts about his efforts. 

The city of Little Rock once tried to close it down as well.  The City Attorney had his ass handed to him by the Arkansas Supreme Court.

Mayor Mark Stodola had summoned Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner to appear before the  Board of Directors in an unprecedented Sunday afternoon meeting to address skyrocketing violent crime in Little Rock.

Questions were put to Chief Buckner by board members about illegal liquor sales occurring on Barrow Road near the West Central Community Center. LR City Attorney Tom Carpenter made reference to the city's efforts to shut down Pic Pac Liquor store and how that turned out badly for the city.  Then in a surprise move Chief Buckner told board members he "wanted to make sure that Pic Pac was shown in a positive light".

Buckner went on to praise Pic Pac Liquor for cooperating and working with his department to deal with loiters and other problems at the strip center in which their business is located.

Buckner also pointed out that one-third of all the calls LRPD received about Pic Pac actually came from them.

Watch a clip we edited from video of the meeting:

It will be interesting to see how this revelation plays out with the ABC and their harassment of Pic Pac and how that Arkansas Supreme Court decision can impact the ABC when they use their "Good Neighbor" policy in situations that involve loitering.

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
