LRPD chief forced into "retirement" - Did the on-going City of Little Rock Human Resources Department investigation into misconduct play a factor?
At approximately 4:54 p.m., one of our trusted sources told us that the LRPD chief was going to quit and it would be announced within the hour.
We immediately posted this on Twitter while still on the phone with our trusted source:
We won't get into all the details at this juncture, but 99% of the memorandum is as exaggerated as the accomplishments of the Trump presidency. Pure mouth flatulence.
What we do know is for the last six months we have been providing the city of Little Rock Human Resources Department receipts (records for the boomers) about the misconduct of Humphrey.
His "resignation" effectively puts an end to that investigation and forever keeps the details of that investigation from public disclosure.
According to conversations our Russ Racop had with city of Little Rock HR officials, they were wrapping up their extensive investigation and word is the only outcome was a strong fact based recommendation for his termination.
Racop is in the process of filing a civil rights lawsuit against the city, naming the mayor and Humphrey as individual defendants.
Racop holds the honor of filing more lawsuits (and winning them) than anyone one else in the city.
Humphrey once emailed Racop that he was going to be chief here "for years".
Once again he lied.

Another rumor making the rounds is that a special prosecutor was assigned to handle the New Year's Eve shooting incident involving the departing LRPD chief, prompting his unexpected "retirement".
We have sent a FOI request to the office of the state prosecutor coordinator about that.
