A sure sign that Governor Asa Hutchinson has decided that tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet is being replaced is the fact that Hamlet was not invited to be part of his task force to deal with the explosion of violence in Little Rock that is often connected to an establishment licensed by the ABC to sell alcoholic beverages*.
In a press release on July 1st, the Governor stated that "we need to have a comprehensive enforcement strategy..."

And Gov. Hutchinson's remarks at the press conference last Friday specifically mentioned needing to step up enforcement of alcoholic beverage control laws but the director of the state agency that specifically deals with enforcement of alcoholic beverage control laws, ABC Enforcement, was not included or mentioned.

We believe that we know why.

We have exposed Hamlet as a fraud and liar.  He is not certified as a law enforcement officer in the state of Arkansas.  Those facts pose significant problems for the ABC in enforcement issues as Judge Mackie Pierce pointed out a couple of years ago in a lawsuit  involving  the release of a Arkansas State Police file Hamlet and other state Republican leaders fought to keep secret.

We have also pointed out that Hamlet is an admitted law breaker and lacks credibility and is untrustworthy.

Hamlet is finally facing the same scrutiny and legal action that the now former Jacksonville, AR Chief of Police did; a lawsuit that seeks his removal and repayment of funds paid to his as salary as he is not qualified to hold the position to which he was appointed.

The Governor fired ABC Administration Director Bud Roberts and it is just a matter of time before Hamlet resigns or is fired too.

Especially as the ABC is going to be knuckle deep in Medical Marijuana  regulation and having an individual like Hamlet connected to enforcement of such laws places the entire state at too great a risk.

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
