During the early morning hours of January 26, 2023 two mercenary Little Rock cops, Scott Carson Hampton (age 44) of North Little Rock and Larry Jack Mears, Jr. (age 35) of Benton, responded to an "assist medical" call at 2106 W. 18th Street at 1:23 a.m.
According to a press release from LRPD, as these mercenary cops were on their way to the residence to assist MEMS, they were advised that during the 911 call the caller stated that an individual at the residence was potentially suicidal.
Upon arrival, the cops were greeted outside the home by a white female who was bleeding from the mouth. The female also advised her boyfriend, later identified as 31-year-old white male Elbert R. Miller, was inside the home and that he was in possession of weapons.
The cops approached the home and noticed the door was open and while standing on the porch they identified Miller through a window.
The cops made several attempts to speak with Miller as they stood outside, but he refused. At that point, the cop told Miller they would come inside and speak with him.
Once inside the home, the cops claimed they attempted to de-escalate the situation, but when Miller walked out of a rear bedroom of the house with a gun to his head they opened fire striking Miller causing him to fall to the floor.
MEMS transported Miller to an area hospital where he later died as a result of being shot by the two mercenary cops.
LRPD provided very little information about the incident and even tried to paint the killer cops in a good light by saying that they "rendered medical aid" after they open fire on him and killed him. Pure copaganda.
LRPD wants you to forget that MEMS was first on the scene and they are actually the ones that worked on the poor man and transported him to the hospital.
As the title of this post states, both of the cops involved are sketchy fucks.
Hampton was hired on at LRPD on August 20, 2018.
Hampton has a high school education and was in the military prior to his becoming a LRPD cop.
Hampton was once captured on his own body camera footage stating that "you could always earn a beating". He says this though he knows his body camera is recording every word he says. It is the sort of unrehearsed, unmediated declaration that throws open a window into LRPD's departmental culture.
No doubt he believes that was the case in that Memphis police case flooding the news now.
