In a story that first appeared on the blog Corruption Sucks, Reverend Benny Johnson heard gunfire outside his residence on October 1, 2017 and called 911 to report it. 

Rev. Johnson then called the property manger to advise her that LRPD was on it's way and heard additional gunfire.

Rev. Johnson while still on the phone went to look out the widow to see if LRPD had arrived and that's when the real ordeal began. Let's  watch Rev. Johnson's detailed narrative of what happened next.

The previous incident that Rev. Johnson made reference to in the video happen just a couple of weeks ago.

LRPD officers claimed that that man "took a shooting stance" and "appeared to have a gun in his hand" according to initial reports.

Turns out that it was only a cellphone.  

Now we are not saying that the man shot back in September was without some responsibility, but a thin rectangular object looks nothing like a handgun.

So you can see why Rev. Johnson had some concern.  LRPD officers saw him standing in the widow and mistook his small Blackberry smartphone for a handgun being held up to his head. 


It is even more problematic for LRPD when one of the officers that responded to Rev. Johnson's call was one of the same officers that thought a cellphone was a gun and fired back in September. Is it a coincidence that they mistook a cellphone for a handgun again or is it a pattern of behavior?  That is something that only an external investigation can resolve.

 As the story that appeared in today's edition of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette revealed, beleaguered LRPD Chief Kenton Tremar Buckner tossed the responsibility to initiate an investigation back onto Rev. Johnson instead of taking a proactive step and ordering one himself. 


There is an interesting take on this as alluded to in the Corruption Sucks post. Is there an effort to retaliate against those who voice concerns about LPRD and the system's failure to take action?

A shocking story we will have posted in the coming days seems to indicate that there is something to what Corruption Sucks blog is saying.

Stay tuned.

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
