Do what I say not what I do - Rules that the LRPD chief has for his cops don't apply to him

Russ Racop - April 26, 2021


On April 19th, the frazzled LRPD police chief sent out a memorandum to his mercenary police force that gives us a glimpse at the low morale and internal conflict at LRPD.





As the memo states, "All LRPD must present a professional demeanor and professional appearance...".

So when Chief Keef made an appearance at the 23rd killing of the year for Little Rock - a city that he states isn't dangerous and doesn't have a gun problem - we were surprised at his failure to adhere to his own orders about presenting a professional appearance.

Citizens and members of the Little Rock Board of Directors have questioned his continued employment.

Humphrey's continuing problems with personal finances (we broke that story last year - click here to view it) that have no resulted in four lawsuits (and three judgments) against him and is an embarrassment to the city.

LRPD cops have been fired for the same thing and it has prevent individuals from becoming a police recruit. 

Humphrey had been found to be in contempt of a court order and that has gotten LRPD cops suspended or fired.

And then there is that "early morning trip" to the home of his applicant of choice for an administrative position under him, to personally "deliver a police report".

But the feckless Little Rock mayor does not see a problem.

When the police union, racist or not, tells the mayor and city board they have no confidence in Humphrey's ability to lead LRPD, that is a major problem.

The lawsuits LRPD cops have filed against him and the one he has filed against LRPD cops and companies that do business with the city is another red flag. 

If the feckless mayor really wants to rebuild Little Rock, the first step is to fire his lousy choice for police chief and appoint a new one from the ranks.

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
