LRPD cops provide security for Republican Party of Arkansas and prevent party members from having a voice in a political process
|Tainted LRPD cop Corey Hall prevents party members from entering building to cast votes|
On June 30, 2022, Little Rock Police cop Corey Hall physically prevented around 45 card carrying, dues paying Republican Party members from entering the Republician Party of Arkansas ("RPA") building at 1201 W 6th Street. The individuals denied entry were able to see two additional uniformed LRPD cop inside the building
These individual were there to attend the meeting of the Credential Committee where it was to be determined if delegates from the Pulaski County Republican Committee ("PCRC") would be allowed to vote the following month at the State Republican Convention.
Even the PCRC convention chair and her attorney were denied entry.
A link to a video recording of the incident was sent to us. We watched LRPD cop interfere with these individuals civil rights to prevent them from exercising their rights as members of a political organization.
One of the violated individuals asked Hall if he was on duty. Hall refused to answer.
Hall threatened to arrest the individuals that were trying to exercise their rights as members of a political party.
We observed that Hall was not wearing a body worn camera and that was a telltale sign he was working in an off-duty capacity.
We sent a FOI request to LRPD for records regarding off-duty employment for the RPA.
This is what LRPD sent:
LRPD does not allow their cops to work off-duty at functions that involve civil rights issues, which the event on June 30th clearly involved.
How can the city of Little Rock and LRPD justify the apparent violation of this policy?
We mentioned that Hall is a tainted cop.
He was involved in a love triangle with a female cop and another male cop that resulted in at least two fights at bars in the safe city of Little Rock.
Hall also has an lengthy disciplinary records at LRPD of documented violations including untruthfulness or lying.
Hall is included with 75 other LRPD cops that have been placed on a LRPD Brady List.
Usually a designation of being a liar or Brady Cop ends a cops career. Not at LRPD.
LRPD cops should not be allowed to violate individuals civil or Constitutional rights on or off duty.
LRPD needs to prohibit their cops from assisting the Old Guard at the RPA in enforcing made up rules/policies that disenfranchise individuals and interfere with their involvement in the political process.
