|YET ANOTHER SETTLEMENT CHECK THE CITY DISHES OUT AS A RESULT OF LAWSUITS|
Earlier today we broke the story about the city settling a lawsuit filed by two recruits, Brandon Schiefelbein and Katina Jones fired for questionable social media posts.
We reported about the matter previously and you can view those post by clicking here, here, here, and here.
Here is the official version from City Attorney Tom Carpenter.
A third recruit, Brandon Gurley, the recruit that reported Shitforbrains, err Schiefelbein and was also fired after FOP attorney Robert Newcob wined and dined befould LRPD Police Chief, Kenton Tremar "NegroPapi" Buckner and convinced Buckner that if he fired Shitforbrains, err Schiefelbei, he would have to fire Jone and Gurley.
Buckner took the bait and fired all three. Now the city pays for another of his numerous mistakes.
Gurley has filed a lawsuit himself and will now no doubt get a check to settle as well. He may get a larger on though as he was subjected to harassment by training staff.
Why city manager Bruce Moore has not fired Buckner is a question we have asked and several Little Rock Board of Director we have spoken with are asking too.
We all have come to the conclusion that Buckner has something on Moore that keeps Moore from firing him.
Changes in leadership at LRPD must take place and the only way that Moore can keep his position (remember elections and changes are coming) is to immediately fire Buckner and send him on his way.
