LRPD Chief Reprimanded After Losing Department Gun

LRPD Chief Reprimanded After Losing Department Gun

Kenton Tramar "Barney Fife" Buckner loses his gun

LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner says he was issued a written reprimand by the city manager after losing his station-issued handgun. 

Buckner says he realized the gun was missing over Memorial Day weekend when he was moving from an apartment where he was living to a home he had bought. 

The chief says he doesn't know whether the gun was stolen or misplaced but pointed out there were several movers, cable company workers and other strangers in his house during the move. 

During an interview Wednesday, Buckner called it a "regrettable moment."

Buckner says the gun was valued at about $460 -- money the chief says he repaid the department. 

Buckner described the gun as a "back-up" weapon that he usually kept "close-by."

Community reacts to new LRSD superintendent

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The new superintendent for the Little Rock School District is set to start tomorrow, but not everyone is pleased with the decision.
Because of the state takeover, some rules had to change to allow him to take that position.
Two weeks after Dr. Dexter Suggs resigned, some parents are concerned that even with the appointment of Baker Kurrus as superintendent, the district isn't moving in the right direction.
"Progress got stopped on January 28 and it's been chaos ever since," said parent Barclay Key.
"It makes us as parents make us feel like we're getting duped some more," said parent Toney Orr. "It's just a continuation of what's going on with the Little Rock School District."
In a special meeting of the state board of education, the directors decided to waive Arkansas Code 6-15-430. In short, they decided to waive educational requirements for a superintendent. However, Johnny Key, state education commissioner, explained to the board that this would a one-time occurrence and the exception is specific to the case at hand.
"What I saw was an organization that needed a leader, someone that could inspire them, bring them together with unity of purpose and he has the ability to do that," Key said.
Kurrus attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville and earned his law degree at Harvard Law School. He's originally from Pine Bluff and he served as a Little Rock School District board member from 1998 to 2010. He hopes his perspective is a bonus to his new position.
"The fact that I'm not a card carrying superintendent is a negative but I'm going to compensate for that," Kurrus said.
Key said Kurrus will have assistance to guide him through the process of working as an educator. Still some parents don't have faith that Kurrus is the man for the job.
"I'm sure Mr. Kurrus is a nice man, but he is not an educator, but he has not taught in a school," Barclay said. "I'm disappointed especially that the state board continues to rely on its own cronies."
Kurrus said his goal is to make sure the community doesn't sit unheard.
"I've been blessed, I'm in a position to do this, I'm willing to do my best," he said.
