[VIDEO] Corruption Blogger Cleared in Dirty Cop Homicide


A fired corrupt 20 year veteran of Little Rock Police Department died while trying to set ablaze a food cart belonging to a blogger who exposed crooked cops and other corrupt city, state officials. ArkansasMatters.com reported that former Little Rock Police Officer Todd Payne died when blogger Ean Bordeaux (pictured above) tackled him as Payne tried to flee the scene of the attempted arson.

Corruption Blogger  Ean Bordeaux
READ ABOUT: Little Rock's Newest Corrupt Police Chief Kenton Buckner

Bordeaux is the proprietor of the Corruption Sucks blog http://corruptionsucks.blogspot.com , a webpage dedicated to exposing corruption in the Little Rock local government and in the state government of Arkansas. At about 4:30 a.m. on Friday April 18th 2014, Ean awoke to find the hot dog cart he operates for a living in flames.

“I looked outside and my hot dog cart’s on fire,” he told KARK. The cart operated on propane tanks, which, Bordeaux said, “could have blown up the house.”


He called 911, then ran outside in a bathrobe to put out the blaze. That was when he noticed a heavyset man in a mask running away.

Bordeaux was too busy trying to put out the flames then, he said, but about 15 minutes later, the man in the mask came back. The blogger watched from inside his house as the masked man tried to restart the fire.

Running outside again, Bordeaux said, he tackled the man as he tried to flee, hoping to hold him until police arrived.

Payne hit the pavement face-first, however, and died from his injuries. Bordeaux said his only desire had been to immobilize the perpetrator and hand him over to authorities.

He quickly realized, however, that the dead man was former LRPD officer Joel “Creepy Todd” Payne, who was fired from the force in 2010 for multiple violations, including a DUI crash in which Payne attempted to leave the scene, incidences of witness intimidation, lying to superiors and dereliction of duty.

Bordeaux had written extensively about Payne & his corrupt River market partners at Corruption Sucks, and believes that the former cop was attempting to strike back at him for exposing his crimes.

In a FOX16 update a Little Rock hot dog vendor will not be charged in a homicide investigation into the death of a fired Little Rock police officer.

Ean Bordeaux says he chased and tackled the former officer, Todd Payne, back in April after Payne allegedly tried to set Bordeaux's hot dog cart on fire.

Payne died from his injuries after the altercation.

The Pulaski County prosecutor says there is no evidence Bordeaux intended to kill Payne.

"This has affected our whole lives. This has dominated our whole lives. I mean everything we do is colored by this and will be for the rest of our lives in one way or another. What it's caused us to do is reflect on what is important here," said Bordeaux.

"It's encouraging that the process can work sometimes. And in this case it did."

Bordeaux has said he never intended to hurt Payne, only hold him until police arrived.

*UPDATED* CORRUPT COP- GREG C. KEY

LITTLE ROCK & INSTITUTIONAL HATE CRIMES:
Dick Pic Cop: LRPD Officer Greg Key. 
Officer "Snitch Mitch" Mcintire
  
http://corruptionsucks.blogspot.com/2013/08/corrupt-cop-greg-key-sexting-erect.html
EXTORTION UNDER ARKANSAS LAW:
Extortion under Arkansas law would be "theft by threat." In the federal system, it would be a racketeering offense. Theft by threat is a class B felony in Arkansas. The threat has to be a threat of harm or a threat to cause somebody to forgo something.

The Arkansas statute provides:

"Threat" is broadly definited, and it means "a menace, however communicated, to: (i) Cause physical injury to any person or to commit any other criminal offense; (ii) Cause damage to any property; (iii) Accuse any person of a crime; (iv) Expose a secret or publish a fact tending to subject any person, living or deceased, to hatred, contempt, shame, or ridicule; (v) Impair any person's credit or business repute; (vi) Take or withhold action as a public servant or cause a public servant to take or withhold action; (vii) Testify or provide information or withhold testimony or information with respect to a legal claim or defense of another person; (viii) Bring about or continue a strike, boycott, or other collective action if a property or service is not demanded or received for the benefit of the group in whose interest the actor purports to act; or (ix) Do any other act which would not in itself substantially benefit the actor or a group he or she purports to represent but which is calculated to harm another person in a substantial manner with respect to his or her health, safety, business, employment, calling, career, financial condition, reputation, or a personal relationship."

It is the position of the Houma-Choctaw Tribe that since about 2006, there are members of the Little Rock Police Department actively and unceasingly engaging in such illegal activities as racketeering, complainant & witness intimidation/tampering as well as retaliation against complaining citizens under the color of law and within the thinly veiled guise of "official duties" in direct violation of state and federal laws making this a federal matter, serving only to harass, retaliate against and financially interfere in the commercial activities of the tribe. A FEDERAL MATTER.

MOST of these mercenary police officers reside OUTSIDE of Little Rock City limit's. This only adds insult to injury as they are not even citizens of our great city but are unwisely & irresponsibly allowed to SHOOT & KILL it's citizens, if they "see fit" & can get away with it, as MANY have.

In a most documented fashion, they (rouge police officers without proper supervision) have criminally & tortiously interfered with the  international and interstate commerce of the Houma-Choctaw Nation's business, Willy Dog USA (main plant in Kingston, Ontario) with numerous illegal predicate acts.


RICO, a federal law, allows for up to 10 years to prove a RICO case based on said serial predicate acts of police intimidation of complainants and witnesses that form an undeniable criminal pattern of predicated activities continued over the course of more than 6 but less than 10 years. The United States Justice Department is currently apprised of our tribe's obvious concerns of said illegal interference and serial police intimidation's.

DOCUMENTED CONFLICTS OF INTERESTS & FOUL PLAY REVEALED:
Crooked Sgt. Jeff Plunkett

Increased police profiling from the City of Little Rock Police Dept. started immediately after I refused to sell-out my business in the River Market District. A drunk driver at Willy D's totaled my hotdog cart. I replaced it, the crooked manager of Willy D's was married to a River Market cop and convinced him and his buddies to, "put the screws" in me. It has been this way ever since. One big cover-up, can't deny this email though, it's a matter of record...

Let me ask you AGAIN you corrupt obstructionist, WHY THE H-E-L-L would we sell you one of our Willy Dog carts for the RIVER MARKET DISTRICT, when WE are in the RIVER MARKET DISTRICT?  There is a hell of a lot more to this corruption story. Oh, it's coming, trust me...


DOCUMENTED CRIMINAL FOIA VIOLATION: Files were illegally withheld by Little Rock Police Internal Affairs for months, in an effort to thwart publication on Corruption Sucks Blog. They illegally claimed that there were NO files on him. Officer Greg C. Key profusely bragged to his co-workers about trapping feral animals and released them in Chapel Ridge neighborhood, a "black" neighborhood. Though this disgusting act is well known by the city, they have refused to investigate the allegations. He continues to harass minorities in the River Market without consequence. We have sought the assistance of the Justice Department to investigate claims of hate crimes and Color of law Abuse as well as a lack of supervision on the part of those in charge of these rogue officers.

Title 42, U.S.C., Section 14141 makes it unlawful for state or local law enforcement agencies to allow officers to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives persons of rights protected by the Constitution or U.S. laws. This law, commonly referred to as the Police Misconduct Statute, gives the Department of Justice authority to seek civil remedies in cases where law enforcement agencies have policies or practices that foster a pattern of misconduct by employees. This action is directed against an agency, not against individual officers. The types of issues which may initiate a pattern and practice investigation include:

Lack of supervision/monitoring of officers’ actions;
Lack of justification or reporting by officers on incidents involving the use of force;
Lack of, or improper training of, officers; and
Citizen complaint processes that treat complainants as adversaries.
Under Title 42, U.S.C., Section 1997, the Department of Justice has the ability to initiate civil actions against mental hospitals, retardation facilities, jails, prisons, nursing homes, and juvenile detention facilities when there are allegations of systemic derivations of the constitutional rights of institutionalized persons.



A Corruption Sucks Blog Exclusive...the hit's just keep on coming, this racist cop has respect for NO ONE, civilian or supervisor. Why is he assigned to the River Market? Certainly this is not the first guy we want people from out of town to meet, let alone one of us. Oh, more disclosures to come folks...

The Arkansas Freedom of information Act is intended to guarantee public access to government meetings and records. It provides civil and criminal remedies for conflicts. A person found guilty of a criminal violation of FOI faces fines of up to $200 and up to 30 days in jail.

More of the same River Market Bad Cop civil rights violation suspensions mysteriously appearing in subsequent FOI requests proving LRPD in non-compliance of prior FOIA lawful requests. Either outright inept buffoons or playing cat-n-mouse in defiance of state/fed FOIA laws. Intentional and illegal omissions to delay/obstruct lawful actions of our social justice blog as it pertains to Bad Cops Greg C.

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (commonly referred to as RICO Act or RICO) is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization

RICO and the Law

If prosecuted in a RICO case, by definition, a person will be charged with Racketeering if they are a member of an organization that has committed any two of 35 specified crimes within 10 years. Penalties include a potential fine of up to $25,000 and 20 years imprisonment for each count of racketeering, plus the restitution of all racketeering-related assets.

Usually a RICO indictment charged by the US Attorney also includes a pre-trial restraining order or injunction against the defendant in order to freeze his or her assets and prevent that defendant from moving or covering up evidence.

Private parties also have the option to sue racketeers, pursuing the recovery of personal treble damages (this amounts to triple the amount of actual damages).

In many situations, indictment can make a defendant want to strike a deal by pleading guilty to lesser charges or even giving up other members of the organization. In any case, if the defendant lost his or her assets, it would be nearly impossible to employ a criminal defense lawyer.


It is the position of the Houma-Choctaw Tribe that since about 2006, there are members of the Little Rock Police Department actively and unceasingly engaging in such illegal activities under the color of law and within the thinly veiled guise of "official duties", serving only to harass, retaliate against and financially interfere in the commercial activities of the tribe, in conjunction with now-convicted thugs working within the River Market to criminally & tortiously interfere with the  international and interstate commerce of the Houma-Choctaw Nation's business Willy Dog USA (main plant in Kingston, Ontario) with numerous illegal predicate acts.


This federal law allows for up to 10 years to prove a RICO case based on said serial predicate acts of police intimidation of complainants and witness's that form an undeniable criminal pattern of predicated activities continued over the course of more than 6 but less than 10 years. The United States Justice Department is currently apprised of our tribe's obvious concerns of said illegal interference's and serial police intimidation's.


This corrupt & racist Little Rock police officer, Gregory C. Key, is still up to his old illegal habits that got him in serious trouble in '95 a  thirty days suspension, he has NEVER stopped. His Internal Affairs file makes very interesting reading. Harassing and retaliating against the Houma-Choctaw Nation, he and his assistant racist partner Snitch Mitch MacIntire are about to catch another IAD case. This corrupt cop traps feral animals like stray cat's, raccoons, possums and such, hoping I'm sure to spread disease and pestilence,  that plague his home area and illegally releases them into "black" neighborhoods like Chapel Ridge (TRUE story).  He has made the mistake of profusely bragging about it to his fellow officer's in the River Market, such as officer Todd Payne who indulged in this racist activity as well. I happened to have overheard him bragging to Todd Payne a great while ago. Greg Key made it clear how he feels about our "race" as well. He had the nerve to tell me to my face that the only reason our business is allowed down here in the River Market on the sidewalk is because we are a minority business and we are getting "special" privileges, NOT because we have been serving great food for 12 years- BIGOT.  He even arrogantly went as far as to tell me, that when he retires, he'll be setting-up his ice cream business in front of Juanita's IN the River Market and if the City says anything to him, he will sue the city for reverse racism and use myself and business as his model example of such. You can always order this lying racist cop to take a lie detector test and confirm my FACTS, if you dare. IN FACT, I'll be happy to submit to one MYSELF, the very moment that you all inform me that Greg Key has been hooked-up to The Box. Then we can really get  down to some truth around here. Any takers??  I'm sure crooked cop fudged reports are easy to  hide behind, lie detector, not so much. 
J. Todd Payne AKA "Creepy Todd"
A wanna' be "Exterminator"

MAKE HIM (racial profiling cop bigot) TAKE A LIE DETECTOR TEST- NOW or we can just wait till the Feds finally catch-up to my numerous DOCUMENTED and confirmed complaints on these profilers and their lack of supervision, buried and otherwise (R.I.C.O) 

Starting this week. Willy Dog USA will be exercising their right to Freedom of Speech and will be kicking-off a public awareness campaign regarding this admitted racist.  This campaign will include signs indicating that officer Key is a proven racist and the LRPD is apathetic in removing this racist threat from their citizens.   Much more to come... http://corruptionsucks.blogspot.com

Orville (Lee) Wollard: Defends Family-Serving 20 Years Mandatory


Lee was trying to protect his family
Orville (Lee) Wollard is serving a 20 year mandatory minimum sentence for protecting his family against a violent individual in his Florida home by firing a warning shot. Nobody was injured or hit. But unless Governor Rick Scott grants him clemency, Lee will be in prison until he's 73.
In the spring of 2008, Lee and his wife Sandy opened up their home to their teenage daughter's 17-year-old boyfriend, who reportedly had nowhere to stay. Shortly thereafter the couple found out that he was stealing prescription pain medication from the home, and had on a prior occasion hit their daughter. Lee and Sandy eventually told the boyfriend that he should make plans to leave their home. One day, seeing the boyfriend outside the house with his daughter, Lee asked him again to leave, and the young man attacked him, ripping out stitches from Lee's recent surgery. The boyfriend left with Lee's daughter, and Lee was in too much pain to do much else.
Some hours later, Lee was awakened by his older daughter's calls for help - the young man was inside the younger daughter's bedroom and loud noises were heard from outside, as if objects were being thrown. Scared for his family’s safety, Lee took his pistol into the hallway area, where at that point he saw his younger daughter crying, and the boyfriend punching a hole with his fist in the living room wall. Lee ordered the boyfriend to leave. The boyfriend, with clenched fists, came closer to Lee, who at that point shot a bullet into the living room wall to scare him. No one was hurt and this finally caused the boy to leave the house.
Several weeks later, the boyfriend went to the police and said Lee had fired a gun at him. That same day, Lee was arrested and charged with aggravated assault without intent to kill.
Believing he was within his rights to defend his family, Lee rejected a plea deal for five years of probation and pleaded not guilty. The jury rejected Lee's self-defense claim and found him guilty of possessing and discharging a firearm, triggering Florida’s 20-year mandatory minimum for aggravated assault with a weapon.
Judge Donald Jacobsen disagreed with the sentence but felt he had no choice, saying: "This [sentence] is obviously excessive…if it weren’t for the mandatory minimum…I would use my discretion and impose some separate sentence, having taken into consideration the circumstances of the event, but I think I am duty-bound to apply the law as it has been enacted by the legislature."
The officer who prepared Lee's sentencing score sheet also begged the government to recognize the extenuating circumstances of the case. Additionally, the investigating officer stated that he believed Lee's daughter and the boyfriend had used this incident solely to get back at Lee for trying to keep them apart.
Unless Governor Rick Scott grants him clemency, Lee will be in prison until he is 73 years old.
This sentence has destroyed a family and we hope you will sign this petition to ask Governor Rick Scott to grant Lee Wollard clemency.

RIGHTS PANEL ASKS CUBA TO GUARANTEE JAILED BLOGGER’S SAFETY

http://en.rsf.org/
Rights panel asks Cuba to guarantee jailed blogger's safety

RIGHTS PANEL ASKS CUBA TO GUARANTEE JAILED BLOGGER’S SAFETY

PUBLISHED ON FRIDAY 10 OCTOBER 2014.
The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) has formally asked the Cuban government to guarantee the safety of Angel Santiesteban-Prats, a writer and blogger held since April 2013 who has repeatedly reported being the victim of mistreatment and torture in detention.
The IACHR submitted its request on 26 September after being contacted by Elisa Tabakman, who edits his website and who already provided the IACHR in June 2013 with details of the threats, mistreatment and psychological torture to which Santiesteban-Prats has been subjected.
Her approach to the IACHR was also prompted by rumours that Santiesteban-Prats might be transferred to a high-security detention centre operated by Cuba’s border protection force. It was after this that Tabakman contacted the IACHR again, asking it to take rapid action.
On the 21 July, the Cuban authorities announced that Santiesteban-Prats hadescaped from San Miguel del Padrón. The blogger recently confirmed on his blog that he did indeed manage to leave the prison, enjoying five days of freedom before surrendering himself to the authorities, saying he had been using his right to leave prison and had not been on the run.
His position was based on the fact that his sentence provided for 72-hours of parole after two months in prison, a provision the prison authorities refused to implement. On his return to prison, he was indeed transferred to a high security detention centre.
Given the gravity of the situation, the IACHR asked the Cuban government on 26 September to adopt the necessary protective measures in order to guarantee Santiesteban-Prats’ physical safety.
We urge the Cuban authorities to comply with this request by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and we reiterate our request to them to free Santiesteban-Prats at once and quash his conviction,” said Reporters Without Borders deputy programme director Virginie Dangles.
Santiesteban-Prats has been jailed because of his outspoken criticism of the government. He was given a five-year jail sentence after being convicted on trumped-up charges of “home violation” and “injuries” in a summary trial in December 2012.
In an interview for Miami-based Televisión Martí on 15 July, his son said he was forced to testify against his father and that the prosecution’s case was a complete fabrication.
Cuba is ranked 170th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

FEMA/DHS 12/14/12 Plan for “Mass Death of Children at a School By Firearms”


October 8, 2014

FEMA/DHS 12/14/12 Plan for “Mass Death of Children at a School By Firearms” 



Document Originated on October 8, 2012

As reported by Memory Hole Blog
http://memoryholeblog.com/2014/10/08/femadhs-12142012-plan-for-mass-death-of-children-at-a-school-by-firearms/
SHE_ObamaBy James F. Tracy
A newly discovered Federal Emergency Management-Department of Homeland Security document designated “For Official Use Only” reveals plans for a “Site Activation Call-down Drill Exercise Plan,” otherwise known as a “Mass Casualty Drill.” The plan, created on  October 8, 2012, explicitly references a scenario where the “Mass Death of Children at a School By Firearms” is followed by a “Suicide or Apprehension of [an] Unknown Shooter.”
The 20-page document further instructs the “Use of Media” to be employed for “For Evaluation” and “for Information Distribution.”
While the date for the drill is marked “December 14, 2012″ on the document’s cover page, on page 12 under Chapter 2: Exercise Logistics, the event is scheduled one day earlier. “The Preparation for Mass Casualty Drill will be conducted on 12/13/12 beginning at 8:00AM. Exercise play is scheduled until the exercise director/Controller determines that the exercise determines that the exercise objectives have been met. Everyone must sign in with Controller upon arrival.”
The instructions emphasize, “All Spoken and Written Communication will start and end with the statement, “THIS IS A DRILL.”
At a minimum, the attached materials will be disseminated only on a need-t0-know basis, and when unattended will be stored in a locked container or area offering sufficient protection against theft, compromise, inadvertent access, and unauthorized disclosure.
The document’s directs parties to direct queries to FEMA’s “Point of Contact” person, Executive Director Tom Romano.
Is this a plan for what came to be widely-known as the Sandy Hook School Massacre? No location for where the exercise is to take place appears on the document. Yet in July 2014 Wolfgang Halbig announced that Connecticut State Troopers intimated to him that the Sandy Hook event was “scripted,” and that some had submitted false affidavits on what had taken place that day.
Also, on December 14, 2012 two similar exercises were apparently transpiring in very close proximity to Newtown. At roughly 9:00AM an “Active shooter drill” exercise commenced in Carmel Connecticut, 45 miles away from Newtown. “By grim coincidence, even as the terrible events were unfolding in Newtown on Friday morning,” the Southeast Brewster-Patch reported,
 the Putnam County Emergency Response Team (“ERT”) happened to be assembled for regular training in Carmel, and team members were at that very moment engaged in a mock scenario of an active-shooter in a school. The ERT is comprised of specially trained and heavily armed officers from the Sheriff’s Office and the Carmel and Kent Police Departments.  When news broke of the Newtown shooting, the Putnam County ERT commander called Newtown Police and offered to have the ERT respond to the Sandy Hook school, but that response was not needed because Connecticut police had already secured the scene.
Ashley Tarr, “Sheriff: Putnam Officials to Talk School Safety This Afternoon,”Southeast Brewster-Patch, December 18, 2012.
A second federally sponsored “course” with the stated goal of “enabl[ing] participants to improve their community’s mitigation and emergency operations plan specifically regarding the needs of children,” was slated for December 14, 2012 in nearby Bridgeport, CT.
Some other curious observations:
HSEEP Training Course was held in 2010 at 18 Riverside Road, Sandy Hook, CT, with Tom Romano listed as the Contact Person.
The International Movie Data Base lists ABC News coverage of the Sandy Hook event, complete with “cast” including Kaitlin Roig, Paul Vance and Barack Obama, lists a broadcast date of December 12, 2012.

In the Sandy Hook library three faculty members hear noises and move 15 or so students to a storage closet in the library filled with computer servers. “Hold hands. Be quiet,” one teacher tells the children. One child questions “whether there are pots and pans were clanging. Another thought he heard firecrackers. Another worried an animal was coming to the door,” the Washington Post reports. “They were children in a place built for children, and the teachers didn’t know how to answer them … ‘It’s a drill,’ said a library clerk named Mary Anne Jacobs.” Eli Saslow, “Sandy Hook Massacre: Teachers Sought to Soothe Children in Moments of Terror,” Washington Post, December 15, 2012.

A special broadcast of Dr. Mehmet Oz’s syndicated television program is devoted to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. Oz asks “Louie,” a Sandy Hook 3rd grader, “what you remember from that day.” “I remember that a lot–a lot of policemen were in the, uhm, school,” Louie responds. “Uhm, well, a lot–I was like [pause] hiding under–when we were having a drill we were hiding under, like … ” As Louie hesitates and takes several deep breaths, his mother nudges him while Oz taps the boy on the shoulder and changes the subject. “Take your time.

Attorney Alexis Haller, Noah Pozner’s uncle, authors and submits a detailed memorandum to the Obama Administration’s White House Task Force on Gun Violence on behalf of the Pozner family. ” The eight-page document “proposes a range of [state, federal and local] legislative reforms to help prevent another targeted school shooting … The proposals … are based upon conversations within the family, consultations with school security experts, independent research related to prior school shootings, and discussion with legal professionals to focus on criminal law.” The statement urges linking gun control measures to mental health diagnoses, federal grants for school security system upgrades, and mandatory lockdown drills at public schools.
