LRPD mouthpiece claims reporter lied about his comments regarding Snarky Media story

Mark Nelson/Edwards - LRPD civilian mouthpiece

Earlier this week we broke the story about the cover-up of a high speed LRPD pursuit that resulted in the death of a child.

You can read the story by clicking here.

Mitch McCoy with KARK/Fox16 reported on the cover-up in a news report yesterday.

An article appeared in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, written by Grant Lancaster, in which Nelson/Edwards stated that our story was not factual.

We made a formal complaint to LRPD regarding Nelson/Edward's defamatory statements.

According to Assistant Chief Heath Helton, Nelson/Edwards claims that the newspaper reporter factually misrepresented or lied about what he said. Nelson/Edwards claims he asked Lancaster to retract the story and he refused.

Helton told SMG's Bordeaux and Racop that he would provide a copy of an email he directed Nelson/Edward to send to the newspaper reporter. 

In that email Nelson/Edwards story changed from being he was misquoted to a total denial that he even discussed our story with the reporter.

Nelson/Edwards has a documented disciplinary history at LRPD for abusive behavior.

We reported about an incident between Nelson/Edwards and a KATV reporter. Our own Russ Racop witnessed in January 2021. You can read our story about that by clicking here.

And in May 2021 Nelson/Edwards lost it and went off on a Fox16 reporter.

Former Assistant Chief Hayward Finks referenced "concerns" about Nelson/Edwards in a memorandum. 

Here's the full memo:

If the paper correctly reported what Nelson/Edwards said, which he claims is a fabrication,  and the internal investigation determines that Nelson/Edwards lied about conversation with the reporter, then the only acceptable outcome is his immediate termination.
Here is Nelson/Edwards version of what happened during that pursuit. LRPD is still trying to cover up that deadly pursuit by calling it a driving without owner's consent incident.
BTW, LRPD refuses to put SMG on their email notification list.
