LEGISLATORS FORCE ABC TO MAKE RULE CHANGES

ABC ADMINISTRATIVE DIRECTOR MARY ROBIN CASTEEL AND TAINITED ABC ENFORCEMENT DIRECTOR BOYCE HAMLET AT AN UNPLEASANT APPEARANCE BEFORE LEGISLATORS EARILER THIS MONTH ARE FORCED TO MAKE RULE CHANGES
 
Legislators  decided today to require the more than 4,000 licensed establishments in the state to self report. 

This is a direct response to the  mass shooting in July at the Power Lounge in Little Rock. 

A previous post detailed how tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet failed to act upon recommendations of two of his enforcement agents recommending that Power Lounge be shut down. You can read that post by clicking here.
 
Alcoholic Beverage Control is working on new violations and fees after the director found the system remains mostly unchanged from the time of prohibition. 

Maybe while Casteel is making rule changes she will address how the ABC and law enforcement agencies are illegally using underage individuals in enforcement operations. Read one of our previous posts about that by clicking here.

Police chiefs and sheriffs are also on board with the idea.

"It's an opportunity for the people that are being compliant to stay compliant and the bad actors to be caught," says Mike Godfrey, Executive Director of the Arkansas Sheriffs Association.

Before any new rules take effect, there will be a 30-day public comment period and further approval from the State Legislature.

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
