In previous posts, we revealed the names of two white recruits that left employment as police officers shortly after receiving a signing bonus from City Manager Bruce Moore and that Moore refused to address questions concerning the sign bonuses and his lack of judgment in not developing a policy regarding those no strings attached signing bonuses.

Moore has claimed that these funds are not signing bonuses even though he stated that they were on TV and newspapers stories.

It turns out that the signing bonuses are not $5k, but actually much larger, $7,513.15 to be exact. 

That figure was revealed in a FOI response from the city (see second image of Excel Spreadsheet).


And to avoid having to go through several board hearings on legitimating the signing bonus for new police officer recruits, an unlikely events as several directors have harped in recent months about city employees not getting raises - especially ones in the sanitation department, Moore looted unused payroll funds that were budgets for police officers.

Moore was so sure of himself that he didn't bother to develop policy or procedures regarding the signing bonus, a standard business practice, and just handed out the money with a smile on his face.

We suspect that when the two officers took the money and ran, he was wishing that he had thought out his plan a little more thoroughly. 

Little Rock is needing police officers so badly that they will play fast and loose with public funds, allow officers to use patrol cars (fuel provided) to drive to and from work (remember most all the officers live outside Little Rock - one as far as Malvern). not issue them tickets while on or off-duty.

We need new city leadership and changes on the Board of Directors.

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.

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
