LRPD drops quarterly community meetings and will only meet with citizens twice a year

LRPD "Chief Keef" Humphrey
In a shocking and disturbing move, the Little Rock Police Department moves towards less transparency and interaction with citizens by announcing it drops quarterly meetings in favor in semiannual ones.

News of this prompted one citizen to contact her city board representative and express grave concerns.

The first homicide of 2020 occurred in West Little Rock on January 6th (Ward 6) as did a double shooting on January 7th (Ward 5).

Both of these violent crimes are making white folks in their WLR neighborhoods very nervous.

Apparently LRPD did not provide this information to city leadership as they were caught off guard.

We reached out to Ward 5 Director Hines and he advised us that he and other board members were trying to find out why they were not notified. Hines made reference to the email from one of his constituents  and echoed her concerns.

We also spoke with Ward 6 Director Doris Wright and she stated that they (LRPD) had mentioned to her they were going to try something different and refused to make any other comments when asked what she thought about the idea. {Note - It must be pointed out that the publisher of this blog is a resident of Ward 6 and for his Ward representative on the board to not express outrage or the least concern was noted}.

We attempted to contact the mayor or a member of his staff but were not able to reach anyone.  We might try to catch him at Copper Grill at happy hour later today.
Citizens in Little Rock are seriously questioning how LRPD can claim we have any type of community policing when most all LRPD officers refuse to live in the city that employs them. 

Around 70% of all LRPD officers live outside the city. 80% of all white LRPD officers refuse to live in the city that employs them.

Add that to the long list of LRPD officers that have issues with credibility and honesty and you see why citizens have serious concerns.

Stay tuned for updates.

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

Pulaski County Department headed by State Senator Fred Love is in trouble.

By Russ Racop On July 31st we broke the story that there was an internal investigation afoot at the Pulaski County office of Community Services.   A recipient of Section 8 HVC vouchers contacted us on that same day for assistance and we began our investigation.   Her landlord contacted her and told her she had three days to get out of her apartment because she had fraudulently obtained assistance.    The landlord had been contacted by Love's staff before she had. She didn't understand what was going on because she just moved into the apartment and had been vetted and approved for assistance by Love's department. It's not the first time someone has reached out to us about Fred Love and that county department.  Love also serves in the state legislature as a Senator. We have received allegations and some records about sexual and workplace harassment, malfeasance and misuse of county resources involving Love. We immediately called the number listed on that rent payment noti
