LR DIRECTOR DORIS WRIGHT USES SHAM EXCUSE OF "I FORGOT MY PASSWORD" TO TRY AND AVOID RESPONDING TO A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST

Saturday, April 14, 2018

DIRECTOR DORIS WRIGHT USES SHAM EXCUSE OF "I FORGOT MY PASSWORD" TO TRY AND AVOID RESPONDING TO A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST

CITY DIRECTOR DORIS WRIGHT - WILL DO ANYTHING TO AVOID RESPONDING TO A FOI REQUEST

For the past year, we have sent FOI requests to the city of Little Rock for emails of board members.

Each time our request included those of Ward 6 Director Doris Wright. Wright has used the personal email addresses and the response we receive is that she deletes her emails after opening and reading them and they have no records to produce. Right.

Wright uses those email addresses for city business and one is listed as the one for the West Central Community Center. 




As far as we can tell, Wright is the only City Director that uses their email as point of contact for a Community Center.

We were surprised and amused at the latest response from the city in regard to a recent request for copies of Wright's email correspondence. Look at what the response was.



Poor L. Lamor Williams is not the sharpest tool in the shed, or else he would not have repeated the ignorant, flimsy excuse given to him by Doris Wright.



Only fools like Wright and Williams would tell us such a thing. 

Any person of average intelligence knows how to recover or change an email password.  And if they didn't, they could Google it and find our how to easily and quickly do it.




We wonder if Wright is telling the truth about deleting emails as she frequently utters the phrase "I slept since then" at board meetings to cover her lack of recollection about something. 

How does she keep track of issues that constituents contact her about?

How does she follow up on promises she makes in emails? 

We know one thing for certain about Wright, she began using a littlerock.gov email address after our publisher addressed the city board with concerns about city directors using personal email addresses for city business.





We exposed some of Wright's shenanigans dealing with the West Central Community Center in this post.

We have more about her coming soon. Stay tuned.

BOND SET AT $60,000 FOR STACY DIGBY, RECENTLY RESIGNED MAYOR OF HIGHFILL, IN SEXUAL ASSAULT CASE INVOLVING A MINOR

Bad Government In Arkansas

BOND SET AT $60,000 FOR STACY DIGBY, RECENTLY RESIGNED MAYOR OF HIGHFILL, IN SEXUAL ASSAULT CASE INVOLVING A MINOR

STACY DIGBY - FORMER HIGHFILL MAYOR AND LAY MINISTER REAPING WHAT HE SOWED

Bond was set Wednesday at $60,000 for Stacy Charles Digby, the now former Mayor of Highfill who resigned shortly before being arrested and charged with two felony offenses stemming from his inappropriate and illegal sexual contact with a female minor.




Benton County District Court Judge Chris Griffin had initially set Digby's bond at $30,000 but later doubled it.
 
BENTON COUNTY DISTRICT COURT JUDGE CHRIS GRIFFIN
Apparently Digby began his relationship with the minor a year after his divorce in 2011,  At that time the girl was 12 and was attending the Highfill United Methodist Church with her grandparents.

Digby's home is located next door the the church.

When first questioned by authorities the 17 year old denied any sexual contact with Digby. However, she later detailed their relationship and confirmed that she and Digby had sexual relations.




It appears that there was some effort by Digby to not portray him as a youth minister but rather as a lay minister in covert contact between him and S.M. while the investigation was underway.



It is mentioned in the affidavit that Digby provided an LG cellphone to S.M. to use and Digby had hidden his computer and had hidden an external hard drive in his parents milk barn. You can imagine what was on his computer and the external hard drive. Perhaps some child pornography charges will soon follow.

A former girlfriend of Digby's, Amy Trammell,  related his confession to her of his illegal sexual relationship with the minor.



 Digby also told Trammell that he was going to marry S.M. when she turned 18.


AMY TRAMMELL


The 13 year old sister of the victim , identified as "S.S.M." provided some illuminating details.

 

The complete 30 page affidavit can be viewed by clicking here

A poor job was done in the redaction of the document as we were able to identify the victim from reading it in only a few minutes.  We were also able to identify one church member that brought concerns to the authorities.






The minister of the Highfill United Methodist Church was interviewed as the victim is a parishioner and investigators thought he might have some information to shed light on the sick situation. Wrong. Rev. Hall has has been quoted by the media as saying the allegations and charges against his pal Digby are false. You can hear him say that in this news report.


REV. RUSS  HALL CROSSES LINE IN HIS SUPPORT OF DIGBY

The United Methodist Church takes a dim view of they type of  behavior and actions Digby was involved in with the minor and has a method to remove him from its membership role as detailed in its Book of Discipline.

 

Rev. Hall's comments will no doubt remove him as a participant in any action the local church takes as his bias has been clearly demonstrated.  Maybe he needs to read the affidavit and keep his mouth shut for the good of the UMC and his congregation.

DIGBY LIKES THEM YOUNG



They need to get Digby out of the Highfill United Methodist Church to protect other minor females from becoming his next victim. Might be a good idea for the District Superintendent and Bishop to look for a new minister at the Highfill UMC as well.

Don't expect the Arkansas United Methodist Church Bishop Gary Mueller to have anything to say about this matter. 

We are still waiting on him to answer our question about the UMC returning the $100K bribe that former Jefferson County Judge and retired UMC minister Henry "Hank" Wilkins accepted from lobbyist Rust Cranford when Wilkins was a state legislator and he passed on to his pastoral charge, St. James UMC in Pine Bluff.
 
GARY MUELLER - ARKANSAS UMC BISHOP

We never met a UMC Bishop that had any spine or much intelligence and Mueller is no exception. Most are pompous blowhards that could not find their way out of a paper bag.

Stay tuned for updates.


***UPDATE***

According to posts on the Facebook account of the S.M.'s grandmother, S. M. has been missing for 22 hours.


We attempted to contact the Benton County Sheriff's Office but could not reach any media contacts.  We they returned our call (using the number 501-712-2312) we were on the phone with a content sharing partner in NWA and did not recognize the number as being from the BCSO as they are in the 479 area code.  A nasty voicemail message was left complaining that we did not answer.

BLACK POLICE OFFICERS FILE CIVIL RIGHTS LAWSUIT AGAINST CITY OF LITTLE ROCK - THEIR ATTORNEY ATTEMPTS TO BLOCK INVITED SUPPORTIVE BLOGGERS FROM ATTENDING THE PRESS CONFERENCE

Bad City of Little Rock

This blog is dedicated to exposing and documenting miseeds and misadventures of departments and employees of the city of Little Rock, Arkansas. 

BLACK POLICE OFFICERS FILE CIVIL RIGHTS LAWSUIT AGAINST CITY OF LITTLE ROCK - THEIR ATTORNEY ATTEMPTS TO BLOCK INVITED SUPPORTIVE BLOGGERS FROM ATTENDING THE PRESS CONFERENCE

IS MIKE LAUX REALLY A MONEY-GRUBBING, CARPETBAGGING ROAMING SHYSTER?

This was another bad week for swamped Little Rock City Attorney Tom Carpenter, troubled City Manager Bruce Moore and befouled LRPD Chief Kenton Tremar Buckner.

The roaming State of Chicago licensed attorney Mike Laux - yes Laux has no license to practice law in Arkansas, except in federal courts- something he never told potential clients that sought him out for representation that reached out to us -  filed a lawsuit Monday morning and held a press conference to lay out all the details. 



We say that Laux is a roamer  because we can't pin down where he actually has a real office (we will delve deeper into this in a future post). The information on his webpage is out of date. His LinkedIn page work experience does not match what you can find using a Google search to see what he has posted himself about his own work experience.  We assume he omits firms that he has been associated with in an "of counsel" position when he wears out his welcome or they have finished using him for a particular case in which they needed an smart-ass, over-confident shyster to take a deposition. 

According to city attorney Tom Carpenter, Laux is good at taking depositions (we suspect because he like to badger folks) and has used Laux to speak to classes when he taught courses at the Bowen School of Law. This is ironic as Laux rips Carpenter just about every chance he can.  
The complaint was filed in federal court Monday morning on behalf of LRPD officers Sgt. Willie Davis, Lt. Earnest Whitten, Sgt. Derrick Threadgill, and former LRPD officer Jackie Parker. Laux said Lt. Johnny Gilbert Jr. and Capt. Tonya Washington will join the complaint as soon as they receive letters saying they have the right to sue from EEOC. 

The lawsuit seeks compensatory damages to make up for lost wages, Laux said, but also seeks to enjoin the city from continuing what Laux and the plaintiffs call racist and "uneven" practices in hiring, discipline and promotions. Laux said the LRPD has a clear hierarchy, with older white male officers at the top and black female officers at the bottom.

You can watch an edited version of the press conference.


Or the raw footage we shot of the entire press conference.


Laux was extremely confrontational with fellow blogger, Chef Ean Lee Bordeaux. Laux did not want Bordeaux to cover the press conference for his blog, Corruption Sucks and went so far as to try and snatch Bordeaux's camera.


Laux was butt-hurt about a post Bordeaux made on Facebook back in August 2017, in which Bordeaux referred to Laux in a specific descriptive manner.




Laux then went after the publisher of this blog threatening him with the same banishment as he did Bordeaux, until he found out that one of his clients had personally invited him to attend. Laux tucked tail and went to the corner.




After the press conference Laux made an weak attempt at an apology for his extremely unprofessional behavior before the press conference. Our publisher told him to forget about it and move on. Shit happens, especially when you are dealing with shysters.

We thought that Laux had settled down and were surprised and confused when he demanded that we remove a video we posted on our YouTube channel about the press conference.  He did that in a strange, unprofessional series of emails.
Laux Email Chain by Russ Racop on Scribd


In the emails, Laux flat out lied. 

He claims that he told the publisher that the videos he made of the press conference, the one attended by reporters from the Arkansas Times, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, KARK, FOX16, and KATV  and made video or audio recordings, if shown would be damaging to his clients.

At no time did Laux ever utter that to our publisher.

You can read his emails above and see that for yourself. 

You can also listen to the only voicemail message he left. He called the publisher twice, but only left a message on the second call.



If a "man" will lie about the little things, like details, he will lie about anything. 

To quote Laux, "the truth is the truth." 

The truth is Laux is a liar.

We suspect that the reason Laux did not want anyone to see the videos is because of what he said. Perhaps he made a misstatement of facts.  Perhaps his rambling diatribe might make him look like an idiot. Perhaps the story he told about a childhood event was evidence of some deep rooted bias he wants to keep hidden. We have no idea why he wanted the video record of what he said taken down as once Laux was pressed by the publisher he resorted to name calling and refused to answer questions. Typical shyster move.

We hope that the officers made the right choice in selecting Laux to represent them. Laux might get the city to settle and write out a check, the city seems to do that an awful lot to make real and frivolous lawsuits go away. 

But this lawsuit will not change the way the Little Rock Police Department operates. That is also the unfortunate truth.

The publisher of this blog has been a staunch supporter of the right of Little Rock Black Police Officers Association to exist and has stood up for its members time and time again as a founding member of Citizens for Truth & Credibility in Little Rock Leadershipin this blogand before the Little Rock Board of Directors as a citizen and candidate for the board.



That will not change and that is also the truth.

#TimeForChange #CleanOutLRCItyHall


***UPDATE***

 We obtained an email that Laux sent Bordeux in which he admits that he "procrastinated" when representing him.  That admission can get Laux in trouble here in Arkansas even thought he holds no Arkansas license to practice law.



The Arkansas Office of the Committee on Professional Conduct, that agency that keeps an eye on attorneys, takes a dim view of lawyers that break our rules and laws.


Maybe Laux should brush up on our rules and laws if he is going to be operating in our state. 
 






 
Stay tuned, there is a lot more to come of this story.

BUCKNER'S PRESS RELEASE IS BULLSHIT - WORD IS HE WAS TOLD HE WAS NOT GOING TO BE SELECTED AS CHARLESTON'S NEW POLICE CHIEF

BUCKNER'S PRESS RELEASE IS BULLSHIT - WORD IS HE WAS TOLD HE WAS NOT GOING TO BE SELECTED AS CHARLESTON'S NEW POLICE CHIEF

KENTON TREMAR BUCKNER - LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO CALL HOME

We will call it as it is, that is what our readers expect us to do - the last ditch effort by befouled Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Tremar Buckner is pure bullshit, a ploy to try and gain favor of city leaders ready to replace him.








Buckner's use of official LRPD letterhead for a personal statement is itself a violation of LRPD Rules & Regulations.

Citizens posted these comments on LRPD Facebook page where they had posted  Buckner's letter.



We would have posted a comment as well but LRPD has blocked us in violation of our Free Speech Rights. 

The week Buckner was in Charleston for a series of interviews we posted this. At 10:30 pm the evening we posted it, there were 29 active users on server registered to the city of Charleston looking at that page when we were reviewing data on Google Analytics. 

Buckner has been on thin ice here for some time and several board members  have told us that it might be time for him to go. Some have even told the city manager, and Buckner toady, Bruce "Home-Wrecker" Moore that he need to be fired.

There have been tense meeting and conversations between troubled city manager Bruce Moore and Buckner as pressure has been steadily poured out on Moore to get rid of Buckner.

There is speculation that Buckner has something on Moore that he uses to "blackmail" him.  It might be another undisclosed nasty home-wrecking incident or one involving some other sketchy activity.

An article that appeared in yesterday's edition of Charleston's The Post and Courier  that hinted that questions about Buckner's abilities were mounting and he was not going to be selected.



A savvy reader there even suggested what we and others know to be true.  The agency that conducted the search for the Charleston position let Buckner know he was out of the running and suggested that he uses the same sort of public relations tactic the city of Little Rock did with the Amazon selection process - pull out when you don't stand a chance for selection and try an use it to your advantage.


Using that private headhunting agency prevents Freedom of Information inquiries as the city of Charleston is "hands off" in the recruiting process and can skirt transparency in the selection process, including giving Buckner a heads up that he was out of the running. 

To make matters worse for the city, the Fraternal Order of Police, mainly composed of white officers that overwhelmingly choose to live somewhere else than the city for which they work, supports Buckner like one of those third-world children you can allegedly feed for a few dollars a month. For example, take a look at what appeared in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette yesterday.


Perhaps it is because that Buckner intends to let officers, like Gilchrest, that are on a purported "liars list" and have been relegated to positions where LRPD will not have disclose that they are Brady Officers, are to be permitted to go back to regular positions perhaps as payoff for supporting him.  Why LRPD keeps such officers will be explored and revealed in an upcoming post.

Certainly the Black Police Officer Association will not let Buckner off the hook so easily if at all.


No doubt Buckner will try and punish Sgt. Davis some more for doing the right thing and speaking out against a corrupt, biased system.

If Sgt. Davis and the BPOA had not made public the complaint about the racist and subversive white police recruit, LRPD would have white-washed the whole matter and swept it under the rug.

Sgt. Davis and the BPOA should be commended for their whistle-blower activities instead of being punished for attempting to make LRPD a better less biased and honest, respectable agency. Something that can never occur under befouled Buckner's leadership.

This is an election year for city leadership and a wave of change is going to wash over the city and clean out the scum. 

It's damn time.
