On August 16th, a civilian employee of the Little Rock Police Department, Judy Lewis, sent an email to all LRPD employees in which she expressed frustration about answering misrouted telephone calls about sex offenders. Lewis added her personal opinion that way to deal with sex offenders was to "Shoot them!"

About an hour (and a dressing down by her supervisor) later, Lewis sent out another department wide email expressing regret for her unprofessional remarks. Lewis added a sad face emoticon to show how really sorry she was.

It then took befouled LRPD Chief Kenton Tremar Buckner several hours to address the unprofessional and ill advised email.

The investigation that Kenton Tremar Buckner made reference to in his email was completed in record time (usually it takes months to complete an internal investigation, at least it does if an officer is involved) and Lewis will not suffer any consequences for her actions. 

Lewis has worked for the city since 1993 and with LRPD since 1995. According to personnel records obtained has no previous history of complaints or disciplinary action.

We are not surprised as LRPD under the Buckner administration has little regard for laws and employees get away with lying, fabricating cases and domestic abuse.

We are not defending any sex offender, nor arguing that Lewis does not have the right to hold any opinion.

What we take issue with is that she used her position as a public employee to express and disseminate her personal opinion. An act that is in violation of departmental rules and of state and federal laws.

This is another slippery slope LRPD is sliding down and we suspect that Lewis is not the only employee that uses city email to express personal opinions and beliefs.

We know that LRPD officers show their support and affiliation with radical right wing racist/extremist  groups on their personal social media accounts with little or no consequences from the department. These are the same officers that refuse to live in the city of Little Rock.

It's past time for a change in leadership at LRPD and in positions at city hall.

Change is coming and Buckner needs to move on and allow new leadership to clean up the mess he has made and begin to fix the fractured department to regain trust and confidence in LRPD by the citizens of the city.

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
