LRPD's crime analyst supervisor makes false statements calling his and LRPD's credibility into question

Jimmy F. Brooks, Jr. - LRPD's Crime Analyst Supervisor

 

Russ Racop - December 14, 2020

Apparently LRPD's chief crime analyst is a liar. 

In an email Brook sent to Laura Martin (LRPD's  Communication and Community Relations Manager) in October, Brooks made some shocking statements.

Gunfire is "regular background noise' in some areas of the city.

Citizen's make false "shots fired" calls to get a quicker response from LRPD.

✦ The expensive ShotSpotter gunfire detection system is a fail.


Brooks' claims about the false calls to police about hearing gunshots to obtain a faster response time from LRPD caused us to send a Freedom of Information request to LRPD for records and data to back up his assertion. 

No surprise to us, LRPD could not produce a single record or any data to substantiate Brooks statements in the October email exchange with Martin. 


LRPD has policies about truthfulness for sworn and civilian personnel. They also have one about employee actions, on or off duty, that paint the department in a bad light.

Brooks' remarks about gunfire being "normal background noise" in some areas smacks of racism.

Brooks' untruthful statements call his and the LRPD's credibility into question.

Brook's needs to be demoted or fired.

Back in 2017 Brooks wrote a story about transparency in law enforcement. You can view it by clicking here.

 

In that article Brooks relates frustration he had when he was a reporter and had issues with transparency with LRPD. He also mentions "openness". Honesty and credibility are factors in "openness". It's also apparent that Brooks' lacks those.


What about the ShotSpotter fail? That will be discussed in another post.

Until then take a look at this video about ShotSpotter.

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
