LRPD cops that killed a mentally afflicted man are sketchy characters

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.

Mears, Jr. was hired on at LRPD on August 17, 2017. By the way, Mears, Sr. is also a sketchy LRPD cop (more on that in a bit).

Mears Jr., only has a high school education too. And before he became a cop he was a factory worker.

Mears, Jr., is a documented deadbeat and once lost a home to foreclosure.
Mears Jr. also is a tax scofflaw and refused to pay taxes owed for 2018 and 2019.
Failure to pay taxes is listed as a Class D Felony in  Arkansas.

Mears, Jr., failed to pay income taxes when due and ignored collection letters.
The Department of Finance & Administration had to sue Mears, Jr. in April of 2022, place a lien of his residence and garnish his wages from LRPD  to collect those taxes he refused to pay.


Failure to pay obligations when due is a violation of LRPD Rules & Regulations.

During the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Mears, Sr. & Jr., along with other LRPD cops, claimed loss of income from businesses that didn't actually exist. You can read all about that criminal activity by clicking here.

The Scott Administration and it's LRPD Command Staff has so far refused to investigate this matter which is not surprising as the feckless mayor and his LRPD are sketchy as fuck too.
We wonder why LRPD Social Workers were not utilized in this incident.
Records obtained from LRPD via a Freedom of Information request reveal that the LRPD Social workers spend most all their time going to meetings with Social Workers from other public and private agencies and do very little work with LRPD cops or the general public. LRPD could not provide any records to show that they did a damn thing besides go to meetings. We can post all those records but it would be a waste of cloud space just like the positions are a wast of public funds.
We also speak with crime victims and they have never told us of a single time a Social Worker has contacted them. 

The Scott Administration and LRPD use these positions, like they do the costly and useless ShotSpotter Gunfire Detection system and the LRPD cellphone application, for optics... to try and make the public believe they are doing something.
They are only wasting taxpayer dollars and bamboozling folks. 

The Scott Administration and LRPD need to immediately release videos recorded by body cameras if they stand behind their words.


After publication LRPD provided the incident report.

Disgraced ex-LRPD cop and felon lied on her employment application to get job with Arkansas State Police

In 2009, Sheva Howard was a Little Rock cop. She began working at LRPD in 2001 as a Crime Scene Specialist and in 2003 she became a police officer. Howard also worked off-duty, in her LRPD uniform, at Dillard's until she was caught in an act of thievery.  Howard purchased one purse, but it was in a bag so heavy she had to drag it on the ground. That bag was later found to have multiple purses packed into another purse. That incident also ended her career as a cop and gained her a felony conviction.   The LRPD Internal Investigation file reads like a script from an episode of Law & Order.   Howard was found to be untruthful during the internal investigation.   Here's what the local newspaper published about her criminal trial. Howard's supervisor at Dillard's was Willie Robinson. It just so happened that Robinson was and is also an Arkansas State Trooper.   Howard tried to have her conviction overturned but the Arkansas Court of Appeals upheld her conviction.   After

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
