Arkansas State Police identify Troopers that participated in the insurrection and attempted coup

 Russ Racop - January 13, 2021

Two Arkansas State Trooper were granted leave to go to Washington, D.C. to participate in the insurrection and failed coup. 

They have been identified as Russell Alan Aiken, W/M age 31, attached to Troop L in Springdale and Karen E. (Reap) Clark, W/F age 56, attached to the Highway Patrol Division in ASP Administration.

Trooper Aiken was hired in 2015.

His career at the ASP has been less than stellar.

Back in August 2017 Aiken was involved in a car chase and mistook a plain clothed fellow ASP Trooper, Lt. John T. Overman, as a suspect and struck him with his patrol vehicle.

This article gives all the details.

Here is a video from the dash camera of Aiken's patrol unit that shows him ramming into Lt. Overman.

Aiken was suspended for ramming Lt. Overman.


In October 2018, Aiken asked to be transferred to a position in the Criminal Investigation Division, but it was not granted, probably due to his questionable history at ASP.

Aiken was involved in another car chase in 2019 even though he was not supposed to be involved in chases after his 2017 incident.

Fast forward to January 4th, Aiken answered the call the join the insurrectionists in Washington D.C. and asked for a couple of days off.
Aiken's now deleted Twitter account revealed his extreme right wing, extremest  sympathies and vehement disdain for our federal elected representatives.

One Tweet by Aiken suggest he was in the U.S. Capitol Building during the attempted coup.

According to Aiken's voter registration he lives in Springdale with his wife.





Corporal Clark was hired way back in 1992.


Apparently Clark isn't too bright. She has not taken down her Facebook page or removed damming evidence of her involvement in the insurrection and failed coup attempt.


Clark's leave slip reflects she took off four days to be totally immersed in the insurrection activities.

Clark even posted a narrative about her activities.

 This post made by Clark suggests she was on the U.S. Capitol Building steps.



This is a video of a live stream that Clark posted on her Facebook page about her activities in Washington D.C. during the insurrection.

 According to Clark's voter registration she lives in Redfield.


These two insurgents and insurrections need to be fired.

They have sullied the reputation of the Arkansas State Police and the State of Arkansas.

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. At this point no details of the alleged illegal conduct have been released. Earlier today the school district posted this on a Bryant Schools Facebook page.

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

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
