Marion Humphrey, Jr. was moving back from law school in Fayetteville in a rented U-Haul to Little Rock to complete law school via on-line classes.


Near the 81 mile marker, ASP Trooper Steven Payton pulled Humphrey over on a manufactured pretext. 

Here are Humphrey's own words about what transpired:




This is a copy of the citation that was issued to Humphrey.



Humphrey also posted this:


Humphrey's father is retired Pulaski County Circuit Court Judge Marion Humphrey. 


We have requested the audio/video recordings of the traffic stop and will post them upon receipt.

We asked the Troop J Captain and the State Police Director for comments. No responses at the time of publication.

Stay tuned for updates.

Apparently the ASP needs time to concoct a story:



***UPDATE - 08/21/20 3:30 PM***

Turns out that Trooper Payton is no stranger to stepping off into the shitstorm.

Back in  2011 when he was a cop in Dover, AR, he was involved in an excessive violence incident that resulted in a lawsuit and settlement that cost the city of Dover and other defendants $225K.

***UPDATE- 08/21/20 5:50 PM*** 
The ASP finally provided a comment: 


Why the ASP hired this train wreck of a cop with all the baggage he had is a question the ASP will be asked to answer.

Wonder how much they will be out after they settle with Humphrey?

We obtained the video of the pretextual traffic stop.


It's  interesting to note that Trooper Payton drove at speeds exceeding 100 mph,  with no blue lights on, after seeing a black man driving a moving van.


Trooper Payton was overly concerned and suspicious that Humphrey appeared to be nervous about being pulled over for driving while black.

Really?

We suspect most all black men pulled over by cops for no apparent reason should be very fucking nervous. All too often, these pretextual stops end in the death of the driver or passenger.

We also found out that a couple of other law enforcement agencies were called in in anticipation of a big drug bust.


They tore up  Humphrey's possessions and the truck and found nothing.

Nothing.

We hope this example of corrupt law enforcement behavior results in legal action that causes proper training and vetting of the invividuals that have a liscense to kill.

Conway Police are looking for information about a fight that happend last night. Tell them we have all the tea.

  The family of a man that is a contractor for ARDOT showed their klan cards last night after a fight at Maly's Entertainment Center in Conway, AR. Michael Wade Kennedy, a convicted felon, allegedly fought with and stabbed a Black teenager outside the venue then he and his klan hurled racial epithets at the teenagers and their families. The Kennedy klan has a long association with ARDOT (formerly the Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department). Maylays advertises to "Bring the Whole Gang" and apparently that is what the Kennedy klan did. Here are videos before the fight and of the fight. In the videos you can see the convicted felon Michael Kennedy brandishing a knife.     Here are three videos that show what happened after the fight. In one of the videos you can see Kennedy holding a knife and then secreting it in a females rear pant pocket.     Michael Drew Kennedy was sentenced in 1999 to a 10 year prison sentence after he attacked a man with a knife at a club j

England High School teacher caught having sex with a 18 year old former student in a car in a park

England High teacher Courtani Bell and former student Kaylin Sullivan   On Monday January 8, 2024 at around 6 p.m., an England, AR cop caught Courtani Bell (W/F 29) a teacher at England High School engaged in "public sexual indecency" in the back seat of Bell's car in a public park with a former student, Kaylin Sullivan (B/F 18).   Here's the police report.   The court date for the randy pair is set for February 22nd in England District Court. Bell is married (for the time being as a source says he's left her) and lives in Sheridan with her hubby Layton. Bell's cuckholded hubby works at the Sheridan Police Department as a cop.   Sullivan, will turn 19 in February 2024.   There are questions surrounding the commencement of their relationship and did it began when  Sullivan was a student? We reached out to the England School District for a comment. No response was received. ### Here's the police body camera footage of the arrest. Here's a shorter version

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
