At the November 13th  agenda meeting, at-large director Kumpuris bitched and moaned about an article that appeared in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on November 11, 2018.

Kumpuris incorrectly stated that the article was about a rise in drive-by shooting in 2018, when in fact as you can see by the attached copy of the article it clearly stated that it was about 2017.

Kumpuris futher stated at least two businesses were not coming to the city based on that article, so he says the Chamber of Commerce told him. 

We wonder how many others will decide to not consider our city with the five homicides that occurred over the weekend.


The data in the article is accurate and facts are facts.  

Police Department data indicate that about 150 drive-by shootings are reported in Little Rock each year but that there were 239 drive-by shootings in 2017 alone. 

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported that there have been more than 1,200 drive-by shootings in Arkansas' largest city since 2011 and almost 147 through Oct. 16, 2018.

The Little Rock Police Department says apartment complexes often have a concentration of drive-by shootings. Of the 12 addresses where drive-by shootings occurred more than four times since 2011, 10 were apartment complexes and two were houses.
Just ask all the LRPD officers about these facts Director Kumpuris disputes. More than half of all LRPD officers  that refuse to live in the city state crime and schools are the main reasons.

Look at the numbers for yourself:

Apparently Kumpuris is experiencing problems with reading comprehension and he should consider stepping down before he further embarrasses himself and the city.

Those illegal no-knock warrants that the Washington Postand others have exposed along with 40 other ones that did not result in an arrest or charges (this information has not been revealed to the media yet) have done more damage to the sullied reputation of the city than anything else and the board refuses to talk about them.

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.

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
