FOI: Please indicate which documents have been deemed NOT releasable and cite the reason why. Additionally explain why there is no detective interview transcript with Chief Buckner regarding the missing weapon. This is most unusual. I have been in several interviews as a victim/witness with you people and my words were always transcribed.
Why is this occasion any different?
You know, questions like, "WHERE and WHEN was the last time you saw your weapon Mr. Buckner?"
"Who else in your home had access to your weapon Mr. Buckner?"
The public has a right to know. That weapon was recovered in the hands of criminals.
We have every right to know what the Chief has to say about how it made it from his gated community home to the dirty and dangerous streets of Little Rock.
YOUR chief has personally contributed to the danger in the city where I work.
I work in the streets.
YOUR chief is responsible for yet another weapon making it into the streets and if you think that you all are going to make this go away by your terse and nondescript answers, well, obviously you haven't caught on yet.
Please consider these questions on the record as this whole sorry affair of obfuscation and damage control, as it stands, will be published in all of it's obvious glory upon Corruption Sucks Blog this week.
I am directing this request to Sgt. Junkins as Ms. Davis' auto-message just went from out of the office "today" to out of the office "this week". Please respond immediately upon receipt as this patron's FOI request does not require records currently in use.

ARk Times: Officers with the Little Rock Police Department have recovered a handgun belonging to LRPD Chief Kenton Buckner that reportedly went missing while Buckner was moving earlier this year

KTHV reports that just after 5 p.m. on Wednesday, officers responded to a call about a suspicious vehicle in the 2000 block of South Shackleford Road. After approaching the vehicle, officers found two men, Edward Williams and Nathaniel Sullivan inside. Police said the driver had a handgun in his lap at the time of his arrest. A search of the car allegedly uncovered another handgun, narcotics and scales. 

Police said both the handguns in the car were stolen, with the serial number on one eventually identifying it as the Glock pistol Buckner had reported missing on June 8. Buckner said that he'd noticed the pistol was gone following a move to a new home over the Memorial Day weekend. 

Both Williams and Sullivan were charged with Theft by Receiving, Possession of a Firearm, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of an Instrument of a Crime. 

Buckner was disciplined by city director Bruce Moore for the loss of the handgun, which had been his backup sidearm. He reimbursed the city for the cost of the pistol. During an interview with the Arkansas Times conducted in July, Buckner said he believed the weapon was thrown out with the trash during the move, saying: 

At no time, and still to this day, do I believe someone stole the weapon. There are a lot of good people that helped me move, all professionals. But I had to kind of mention that, because if you don't know where it is then you can't truly say what happened with the weapon. If I had to be pushed with my back against the wall and say what do you think happened with it, I would say that it was in something that was maybe thrown out, and I was unaware that it was in there.

With the recovery of the handgun, it appears Buckner may have been wrong about it being stolen. We have an inquiry in to the Chief seeking more information, and will report as it becomes available.UPDATE: We received an email from Buckner regarding the recovery of the pistol: 

I was glad to see the weapon recovered. It is hit or miss with stolen property. Rarely are you lucky enough to recover your property.

I have no connection to the men arrested for possession of the weapon. They were not part of any of the workers that I witnessed in my home during my move. I highly doubt we will ever know how they gained possession of the weapon.

They were arrested without incident and [there is] no evidence the weapon was used in a crime.

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."

CORRUPTION ABOUNDS? LR MAYOR DEMANDS MORE STAFF

CORRUPTION ABOUNDS? LR MAYOR DEMANDS MORE STAFF


Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola

Publisher's note: Our esteemed Little Rock City Mayor oddly declares that his workload is so mountainous in our mid-sized southern-fried city. 

A bloated city that suffers the corrupt redundancy of a hybridized system of city manager, asst. manager, board AND mayor/asst mayor. 

The layers surely abound. Not a sound indication of prudent city management.

Yep, we really need another layer of taxpayer-paid corrupt crony bureaucracy, indeed. 

If you can, please take a little bit of your time to read the two currently spotlighted perspectives of this issue upon Corruption Sucks Blog and draw your own informed conclusions. 

One viewpoint is from Max Brantley of the Arkansas Times, he points out that, "The mayor currently has an administrative assistant who, as of March, was paid $45,600. Others on the city staff respond to the mayor's needs as necessary."

The other perspective is from a Little Rock taxpayer/homeowner that has much to say and reveal about this and other citizen concerns. 

He believes that many recent actions taken against him by the city are in retaliation in response to him exercising his first amendment rights speaking out against what he believes to be obvious and blatant corruption by Little Rock City government. Done while thumbing their noses at it's citizens because they are well aware that they got both law enforcement and the local media "by the balls". 

From my own personal experiences with the city of Little Rock (14 years), I'd have to say that there is a lot of validity to what this guy is saying once you get past his ranting style and his own personal version of "southern charm".

He additionally states that he can prove his corruption allegations, if only given the fair chance to do so. 

I certainly intend to afford him such an opportunity. So, please allow me a bit of latitude on this, as I do intend to publish his alleged proof & comments from time to time when I see them fitting and appropriate. E Pluribus Unum.


From the Arkansas Times:

Mayor Stodola demands new staff positions at City Hall

Posted By  on Thu, Nov 5, 2015 at 10:54 AM

'I REALLY WANT AND NEED THIS TO HAPPEN:' Mahyor Mark Stodola.
  • 'I REALLY WANT AND NEED THIS TO HAPPEN:' Mayor Mark Stodola.
Mayor Mark Stodola has been advertising for two new staff positions — a chief of staff who'd be paid $60,000 to $90,000 and an assistant to the mayor who'd be paid $44,000 to $68,000.

The creation of the jobs came after some internal disagreement on titles and Stodola's insistence to City Manager Bruce Moore that the jobs be created according to his specifications.

The mayor currently has an administrative assistant who, as of March, was paid $45,600. Others on the city staff respond to the mayor's needs as necessary.

According to job descriptions, the chief of staff will coordinate the day-to-day operations of the mayor's office, perform research and analysis on a wide range of community and constituent issues, and "provide professional support in coordination and implementation of special programs and initiatives for the mayor's short and long range goals and objectives."

The assistant will provide "administrative, technical and professional support" to include research and data analysis and serve as a liaison to the Mayor's Youth Council This person must have a commercial driver's license.

The chief of staff position was advertised internally — only to the city manager's staff, not the entire city workforce — for three days and there was one applicant, whose name has been sent to the mayor. I am supposed to be provided it under the Freedom of Information Act eventually. The assistant job was advertised and the response period has not closed. UPDATE: The sole applicant is Phyllis Dickerson, a special events coordinator in the city manager's office, who currently makes about $47,000 a year. If chosen, she's apparently in for a whopping pay raise.

In terms of added employment, only the chief of staff will increase allotted positions numerically. Stacey Witherell, the city human resources director, said there was a vacant "management analyst" position that will be converted to the assistant to the mayor position. City manager Bruce Moore, has power under the city's blended manager/mayor system to create a new job without City Board approval, subject to budgetary considerations.

Here are the job descriptions of the two new jobs.
There was internal tension about the creation of the two jobs, based on documents I received under Freedom of Information Act requests. After City Manager Moore forwarded to human resources the mayor's request for new positions, Witherell wrote back saying the job title chief of staff didn't fit with the city's organizational structure.

Her memorandum said a chief of staff title is typically assigned to someone in charge of day to day operations of municipalities. "In our curren structure, the city manager has the operational authority and directs all operations." She suggested some alternate job titles. She also commented:

"At this point, any salary considerations based on experience, talent and education would be premature in nature as any salary offers must be based on maintaining salary equity within the city manager's office; therefore, the level of compensation proposed for an incumbent selected to fill these positions is beyond the scope of this review."

Here's the full memo from Witherell.
This news didn't sit well with Stodola, who sent a note back to Bruce Moore. He said none of the alternate titles was acceptable. He said he wanted the job identified as he'd requested and at a pay grade comparable to the communications officer or chief services officer position, or made a "999" unclassified position "if that is easier." The job was advertised as chief of staff at grade 999.

Stodola wrote to Moore:

My very quick and brief research reveals that a mayor's chief of staff in a city manager form of government is common where the mayor's executive authority has been increased and isusually distinguished from running the day to day operations of municipalities, which is your job as the chief administrative officer of the city. The position of mayor's chief of staff in manager/council forms of government exists in several cities, for example; Mesa, AZ; Fresno, CA; Tulsa OK; Oklahoma City OK; Austin TX; Hartford CT to name a few.

.....

Bruce we have always worked pretty well together the past 8+ years and while you might prefer something diferent, I really want and need this to happen and would like it to happen with your cooperation. Ordinance 19,761 identifies the mayor as the chief executive officer of the city and it also increases the executive authority of the mayor including a directive that all powers and duties of the city manager shall be performed at the direction of the mayor.

Here's Stodola's full note to Moore.
Stodola was elected to a third four-year term in 2014. A change in government gave the mayor's office veto and appointment power and enabled a big pay raise, to $160,000 a year. But the rule of six — a six-vote majority on the City Board — remains the strongest force in city government. Talk continues in widely divergent political circles about the need for a change in government in Little Rock to a city council form. A variety of politicians might have an interest in challenging Stodola in such a happenstance, if not before.

Stodola is out of town and didn't respond to e-mails for comment. Moore was said to be in meetings all day.

UPDATE: I did receive an e-mail from Stodola, who said he had a "full plate" and needed the assistance. His full response:


By way of explanation the city manager's office has had the secretary/scheduler reporting to the City Clerk and the project manager reporting to the ass't city manager. This has proven to be very unworkable with little accountability. The ass't city manager and the city clerk have more than enough on their plates already.Additionally I often have interns from the Clinton School, Philander Smith, and UALR working in the office that also need supervision. I believe Bruce agrees.

Over the course of being mayor I have on occasion used the services of one of the 3 special projects staff in the city manager's office. I have observed over time that in my opinion at least in part they are not fully utilized. Hence I have suggested that rather than add staff, one of the positions should be used to fill the Mayor's chief of staff position to continue to do special projects for both the mayor and the city manager as the job description so provides, and to provide direct supervision to the staff positions assigned to me. This can be done with a very little increase in money. I believe this will improve follow through on a variety of matters and direct accountability. As for a position called the Mayor's chief of staff, it is common in many city manager styled cities where the mayor is full time and has increased executive authority. I believe this should be viewed a just part of the evolutionary process. [A new position was created, though it appears likely that Stodola's choice for the job will come from the city manager's staff, though that has not been confirmed yet.]

I know you perhaps believe the mayor's office is not involved in projects, but let me mention a few:

Conducting regular meetings of the Mayor's Crime Prevention Task Force; a new juvenile diversion program between city/ prosecutor's office, the schools and the courts, for which we are receiving technical assistance from the NLC; a mentoring program I am trying to get off the ground at Hamilton Learning Academy in conjunction with Philander, Arkansas Baptist and UALR; the federal multi jurisdictional Violent Crime Reduction Network of which the mayor's office is a part ;regular meetings of the Mayor's Tourism Commission and the Mayor's Sustainability Commission; a housing rehab program I want to establish with Americorps volunteers;developing Phase 2 of the Creative Corridor; and establishing Broadband connectivity in all our public housing which the HUD secretary has requested we achieve. The Mayor's office is also responding and working with our veteran's drop in center to end homelessness for veterans and I would like to work with our homeless day resource center on some transitional housing in a small subdivision adjacent to the center that has several vacant and boarded up houses.

Add the AAC ,the I-30 project and the Mayor's Youth Council volunteer program to the mix and it is a pretty full plate.

My understanding is the job(s) are being advertised. I have not interviewed or offered anyone a position at this time.

LittleRock Citizen Luke Skrable: 


Little Rock Taxpayers and Homeowners,

I am sure the majority of the Little Rock Public is unaware of what our Mayor is planning behind the scene and backs of the taxpayers but take a few moments to gain an education and then make your Public Voice heard and understood before it is too late.  
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Stodola wants chief of staff; one seeks job 
Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola has requested a chief of staff be hired to assist him with special programs and initiatives, as well as conduct research and handle day-to-day operations of the mayor's office.

The position was advertised internally, only within the city manager's office at City Hall, for three days beginning Oct. 27. One employee applied -- Special Events Coordinator Phyllis Sherrie Dickerson. No hire has been made.

The position was advertised with an entry salary of $60,074 to $92,514.
Dickerson currently makes about $46,800, according to her application. She's worked in her current role for City Manager Bruce Moore for 10 years.

The city also is advertising for an assistant to the mayor. That position is open to external candidates, as well. Applications will be accepted through Tuesday.

The entry salary for the assistant position is listed at $44,302 to $68,225. The assistant will provide administrative, technical and professional support to the mayor, as well as serve as the liaison for the Mayor's Youth Council.

Stodola said Thursday that while both positions have new titles and job descriptions, he is not recommending a change in the number of jobs within city government. The assistant position is a title change from a previous management analyst position. The person who held that job recently resigned.

For the chief-of-staff position, Stodola is recommending that Dickerson be moved from the city manager's office to the mayor's office, leaving Moore with two special events coordinators.

"Over the course of being mayor, I have on occasion used the services of one of the three special projects staff in the city manager's office," Stodola said in an email Thursday. "I have observed over time that in my opinion, at least in part, they are not fully utilized. Hence, I have suggested that rather than add staff, one of the positions should be used to fill the mayor's chief of staff position to continue to do special projects for both the mayor and the city manager as the job description so provides, and to provide direct supervision to the staff positions assigned to me."

"This can be done with a very little increase in money," he added.
Moore did not respond to an email Thursday asking whether he would follow Stodola's recommendation or replace Dickerson with a new hire if she is given the chief-of-staff position. Moore's assistant said he was out of the office for meetings all day.

At-large City Director Joan Adcock questioned Moore about the chief-of-staff position at Tuesday night's Board of Directors meeting and asked him to explain what the position is and why it's needed.

Stodola said Thursday that the shuffle in job titles and duties would eliminate "dysfunction" that is taking place now. He said a projects manager assigned to him is reporting to the assistant city manager, and the secretary assigned to him is reporting to the city clerk. Stodola would keep his secretary, who answers calls and handles scheduling, even with the two new positions.

The city's Human Resources Department initially objected to the creation of a mayor's chief-of-staff position.

In an Oct. 8 memorandum to Stodola, Human Resources Director Stacey Witherell suggested that the position have a different name, such as office administrator or administrative manager.

In reply to that memo, Stodola sent an email to Moore on Oct. 14, saying the suggestions were not acceptable. He noted that the position of chief of staff for a mayor is common in other cities that have a city manager form of government, where the mayor's executive authority is increased. Unlike most mayors in such cities, Stodola has veto power.

"I want the position identified as I requested and a salary grade that is comparable to our Communications or Chief Service Officer positions," Stodola wrote.

"Bruce, we have always worked pretty well together the past 8+ years and while you might prefer something different, I really want and need this to happen and would like it to happen with your cooperation," Stodola said later in the email. "Ordinance 19,761 identifies the mayor as the chief executive officer of the city and it also increases the executive authority of the mayor including a directive that all powers and duties of the city manager shall be performed at the direction of the mayor.

"Thank you for your consideration. Please let me know if you have any questions, otherwise I need these 2 positions in place by November 1st," the email says.

Asked when hiring decisions would be made for the two positions, Stodola said by phone Thursday that he planned to make recommendations after the close of the application deadline for the assistant-to-the-mayor job.

Witherell, the Human Resources director, said in regard to the chief-of-staff position that it is common to advertise promotional opportunities only within the city or a certain department.

Dickerson submitted a 10-page application and resume package for the chief-of-staff position.

She has a master's degree in arts with a concentration in human resource development from Webster University and a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Central Arkansas.
Dickerson began working for the city in 2005.

From 2010 to 2014, she also occasionally took assignments on an as-needed basis from first lady Michelle Obama, according to her application package. Dickerson worked as a site advance staff member, meaning she prepared sites the first lady would visit and worked with the media and special attendees.

If selected as the mayor's chief of staff, her essential job duty would be to establish short- and long-term objectives for the mayor's programs and initiatives, as well as develop action plans to support issues of concern to the mayor.

"I believe this will improve follow through on a variety of matters, and direct accountability. [The chief-of-staff position] is common in many city manager styled cities where the mayor is full-time and has increased executive authority. I believe this should be viewed a just part of the evolutionary process," Stodola said by email.
Metro on 11/06/2015

What the reporter of this article did not include in her report is Phyllis Dickerson, the only city employee that applied for the Chief of Staff position is the daughter of another Ms. Dickerson who was a favorite of City Manager, Bruce T. Moore's office and is just riding on the "Nepotism, Cronyism, Favoritism and Rascalism" coattails that Little Rock City Hall is historically noted for.  A past disgruntled office administrator in Moore's Office informed me that when these 3 day internal job placement ads go out that the fix is in and that Moore's office has already hired, as in this case, the single applicant.  Thought Phyllis Dickerson has not officially been assigned her new position of Chief of Staff as of this writing, but it is a no brainer, one applicant applies, that applicant is hired.  Besides the obvious issues from the "Nepotism, Cronyism, Favoritism and Rascalism", I have heard from multiple sources that Ms. Dickerson is not qualified for a position of this caliber. 

My personal concerns with this position being created and filled with possibly a favored city employee is the cost to the Little Rock Taxpayers in light of the city manager operating currently with 185 vacant positions.  Every time Sara Lenehan's "Vacancy Savings" bi-weekly report comes out that is a quantitative endorsement for the elected mayor and Board of Directors to remove City Manager, Bruce T. Moore for Incompetence in managing our tax contributions and city.  Of course in Little Rock the city manager is the Dog and the elected tax stewards are the Tail.  So creating a new position when 185 positions, that are sorely needed unfilled" is in my eyes ample example of tax mismanagement in the interest of the existence of "Prudent Tax Management" that is required by law.

Eugene Ellison: Little Rock's Michael Brown

Justia Opinion Summary: Ellison v. Lesher, No. 13-3371 (8th Cir. 2015)


Officers Lesher and McCrillis were working off-duty, patrolling a Little Rock apartment complex. They noticed that Ellison’s apartment door was open. From outside, they could see 67-year-old Ellison sitting on his couch, leaning on his cane. After Lesher and McCrillis started a conversation, Ellison responded that he did not want help or attention. McCrillis thought Ellison was being mouthy and wanted to keep him from shutting the door. The women stepped inside. Ellison got up and approached. A physical altercation ensued. The officers repeatedly struck Ellison and knocked off his glasses. Ellison repeatedly told them to get out of his apartment. McCrillis requested back-up, which arrived after the physical altercation was over. Lesher was still inside the apartment. Officer Lucio reached inside to pull Lesher out. The officers instructed Ellison to lie down. He refused. Lesher told McCrillis that Ellison was getting his cane, and that she was going to shoot Ellison. She fired two shots into the apartment, killing Ellison. In the estate’s suit under 42 U.S.C. 1983, the Eighth Circuit held that neither officer was entitled to qualified immunity on a claim of illegal entry; that Lesher was not entitled to qualified immunity on a claim of lethal excessive force; but both are entitled to qualified immunity on a claim concerning use of nonlethal force.

In action alleging the defendant officers unlawfully entered the home of plaintiff's 67-year-old father and used excessive force when they shot and killed him, the district court did not err in denying defendants' motion for summary judgment based on qualified immunity on Count I of the complaint which alleged unlawful entry; under the facts outlined by the district court, defendants entered because they thought the deceased was being "mouthy" and that belief did not provide an exception to the warrant requirement for entering the residence; the court would not look to facts not outlined by the district court as that would be beyond the proper scope of an interlocutory appeal on the issue of qualified immunity; with respect to the district court's finding that defendant Lesher was not entitled to qualified immunity on Count II's allegations of excessive force, Lesher frames her argument that she was entitled to qualified immunity on a set of facts not assumed by the district court; while she may be able to prove at trial that the deceased was wielding a cane in a threatening manner, the court must accept for the purposes of its decision that he was not wielding the cane when shot; under the facts outlined by the district court officer Lesher would have been on notice that use of deadly force would not be reasonable, and Lesher was not entitled to qualified immunity; given the de minimus level of injuries the deceased suffered before the shooting, defendant McCrillis is entitled to qualified immunity on the excessive force claim against him and defendant Lesher was entitled qualified immunity on plaintiff's claim she used excessive non-lethal force before the shooting.

CORRUPTION: Little Rock Citizen Accuses City Manager/Mayor

Publisher's Note:
Luke Skrable is facing criminal charges brought by the City Manager of Little Rock. He is accused of alleged terroristic threatening in the course of dispelling information of what he states is blatant criminal corruption amongst his accusers and they are prosecuting him out of retaliation and to cover-up the wrongs that he has exposed. These are his words after the Arkansas Times article: 

Getting the grease? 

City hall critic cries retaliation.


Luke Skrable
Luke Skrable, the Southwest Little Rock code enforcement gadfly whose crusade to clean up his neighborhood was featured in the March 17 issue of the Arkansas Times, claims that he is living proof that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Or, in Skrable’s case, the tickets. Almost simultaneous with the appearance of the article, Skrable said he was issued a warning by city zoning for a trailer parked in his driveway — even though there were several similar trailers within a few blocks of his house. Then, in mid-April, a city code enforcement officer paid a visit to Skrable’s house, issuing a notice of non-compliance for several items, from the black plastic he used to keep weeds out of his flowerbeds to stalks of poke sallet that had sprung up along his back fence. On April 27, code enforcement returned and issued a citation to appear in the city’s Environmental Court for a number of violations, in many cases ignoring — Skrable said — the changes and improvements he had made to try and meet the city code and refusing to note clear violations at other houses in sight of his yard Code enforcement supervisor Barbara Hyatt said there was no retaliation against Skrable, and that her department would never retaliate against a critic. Hyatt said that it was simply a case of a code enforcement officer seeing legitimate violations in Skrable’s yard through a chain link fence while checking out a complaint in his neighbor’s yard — a complaint Skrable himself called in. “The code officers are told — in order to try to take care of the problem before it becomes a complaint — when they go to a site, to look on both sides and across the street,” Hyatt said. She added that within “two or three days” of Skrable being cited, code enforcement issued 11 citations for non-compliance to other residents in Skrable’s neighborhood. Hyatt said she didn’t know whether any of Skrable’s immediate neighbors received warnings or tickets. For Skrable, no matter how the city wants to disguise it, he sees the tickets he received as retaliation for speaking out against lax code enforcement in his area. Skrable said that once the code enforcement officer came back to his yard and began to write tickets, he knew the fix was in. “Everything was ‘a violation,’ ” Skrable said, adding that the officer never told him exactly what he was being ticketed for. He sees it as a scheme to stifle those with concerns. “If my city officials want to play junior high games, let them amuse themselves,” Skrable said. “I’m not a politician, just a homeowner watching his investment go down in value. The local government can’t seem to see the situation, and then [they] choose to enforce every code in the book against me just to show they’re on the ball.” Meanwhile, he said, piles of trash continue to sit on the curb in his neighborhood for weeks — the problem that led him to try fighting City Hall in the first place. Last Wednesday in Environmental Court, Skrable pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. A trial has been set for June 6.

LUKE SKRABLE:

Dear Little Rock Taxpayers and Homeowners,

As many of you know from the accounts I have relayed surrounding the circumstance about my Political Retaliation at the hands of Mayor Stodola and City Manager Bruce  T. Moore the past 10 months, on the eve of going to court to appeal my conviction for crimes I did not commit.  Once a Homicide Detective was personally assigned to my case, the City Manager provided him three lies to be used to accuse and obtain 3 Felony Warrants against me to arrest and imprison me based on lies and not documented facts to support the City Manager's false claims.  The article below explains in detail of how the Stodola Good Ol' Boy Society and his Cowboy Review can use corruption to promote their own personal agendas to Politically Retaliate against the taxpaying public to silence their telling the truth about the level of corruption that we the taxpayers are forced to fund.  Once the public stands up and publicly tells the truth you will have a target put on your back and the corrupt government will use it's power to manipulate city employees, the police department and the law to obtain their goals of hiding the truth and silencing anyone foolish enough to stand up publicly and tell the truth about the Stodola Good Ol' Boy Society's dirt.  Education and standing against corruption is the only way to defeat this cancer against society, please read below and educate yourselves and then tell your loved ones and neighbor what their tax contributions are funding and how if we stand together against a corrupt government administration we can all benefit and restore Honest and Ethical Tax representation here in Little Rock.

           Mayor Stodola’s and City Manager, Bruce T. Moore’s Deliberate Lawlessness is Little Rock Government Corruption in Action.
       
On January 20, 2015 as I attempted to exercise my 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech, a 79th time since 11-21-2006, to have Mayor Stodola lie about my subject matter and then gained the support and endorsement of 9 elected Board of Directors to deny my 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech a fifth time in 8 years.

 The Mayor and elected Board Members all have signed Oaths of Office swearing to uphold and support the Arkansas and U.S. Constitutions, something they all deliberately ignored as they violated my Constitutional and Civil Rights.

To add insult to injury after the mayor and city manager had me arrested on three Felony charges for Terroristic Threatening the city manager and Public Works Secretary, Sue Hulsey, then Mayor Stodola lied in his Transcribed Statement used against me by the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office as Discovery Evidence.  If that was not enough lying waged against a Little Rock Citizen, then City Manager Bruce T. Moore committed Perjury 15 times under Sworn Oath in Judge Gruber’s Bench Trial on 7-22-15.  Sue Hulsey only perjured herself once but one lie under Sworn Oath is all it takes to be charged with a Class C Felony for Perjury.  If everything is legitimate about their accusations why all the lies…..?

Mayor Stodola has yet to join rank and file with Sue Hulsey and City Manager, Bruce T. Moore but once he is called to the witness stand on Thursday 11-12-15 and his Discovery Evidence is scrutinized by my legal council he also will have his false statements recorded on the perjury list to obtain a total count of my accusers list of false statement told under Sworn Oath to present Judge Piazza to consider.

False Statement Score Card:
LUKE SKRABLE (Mugshot: Booking)

Mayor Stodola – stated I was there to speak about “Ditches” 4 times but my Citizen Communications Card the mayor accepted and acknowledged clearly stated >> “Addressing Incorrect Mayor Comments from 1-16-15 BOD Meeting”.  (I was rushed and put 1-16 instead of 1-6 like I had on the first card I submitted that night)

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Mayor Stodola also stated publicly in his Transcribed Statement I was called “Out of Order” once and then City Manager, Bruce T. Moore made the same false statement several more times under Sworn Oath in my Bench Trial in Judge Gruber’s Court.

Little Rock City Manager, Bruce T. Moore states:  “the mayor called Mr. Skrable ‘Out of Order’ because the mayor interrupted he was not following the rules of Citizen Communications.  Mr. Skrable was not very happy about that, pounded on the podium, the police, the LRPD escorted him out of the city board chamber”.
            PD – “You said he called Mr. Skrable ‘Out of Order’, what did mean by that?”
            Little Rock City Manager, Bruce T. Moore replies “There are certain rules and decorum that we have parameters around Citizen Communication and the mayor, not myself but the mayor felt like Mr. Skrable was ‘Out of Order.”
             PD – “Meaning what he wanted to comment on was inappropriate at that   time at that meeting, is that what you meant by that.”
            Little Rock City Manager, Bruce T. Moore replies “In this particular case, that’s correct.”

Unfortunately the above false statements, under Sworn Oath by the City Manager, Bruce T. Moore can all be seen as false by a simple review of the Citizen Communications Segment for the 1-20-15 Board of Director Meeting. 


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

City Manager, Bruce T. Moore place his first personal ban on me from speaking to him or contacting his office on 12-20-2007 because I was picketing in front of City Hall with a sign that read >> “Can the Best City Manager in the USA be a Racist?”. 

City Manager Bruce T. Moore’s statements under Sworn Oath on 7-22-15: 

1)                   “However, I did continue to allow the City Government overall responses uh but again in 2007 I said that he was not to have any contact with me directly.”

3)         “On January 22, 2015 I took a tape statement from Mr.  Moore.  ‘Mr. Moore stated that he told Mr. Skrable to not make contact with him by phone or email based on threats he made in 2007.

4)         “Uh so since 2007 uh he has not directly emailed me”.

5)         “In this statement, Mr. Moore says that he has had ongoing problems with Mr. Skrable for several years and he had told Mr. Skrable not to contact him in any
            form.”
Now comes the evidence from City Manager, Bruce T. Moore’s own words in the form of a reply to the following FOI Request provided by City Attorney, Tom Carpenter to prove he lied under Sworn Oath:
FOI Request 7-3-15 CAO - City Manger Emails - AND #10)    Please provide a copy of the City of Little Rock's phone call records to indicate the day City Manager, Bruce T. Moore received a phone call from me resulting in him putting a Ban on me after Bruce T. Moore told me "I just said that he was no longer to contact me directly uh via email or uh phone”.  Please include the date and time this ban formally began.
Little Rock City Attorney, Tom Carpenter’s reply on 7-18-15: “RESPONSE; There are no public records that meet your request.  It is also noted that the request asks for documentation of something – a ban – that Mr. Moore said did not occur.”

Now in light of the City Mangers own words about “A ban that did not occur” he continues to make more false statement some directly to Judge Gruber after his direct inquiries.
6)         Judge Gruber asked:  “Do you know what reference he was making with respect to the ban?

            Little Rock City Manager, Bruce T. Moore replies “I DO”.

            Judge Gruber asked:  What kind of ban was it?

            “I told him he could no longer call me or email me directly”
            “he could no longer call me directly or email me directly and that was the ban and I let him know that”.
Unfortunately for me in a Bench Trial the Defendant is not allowed to present evidence in his own defense, just his Sworn Testimony.  Now in my Appeal in Judge Piazza’s Court on Thursday 11-12-15, I can present all the false statements above and can show the exact number of times City Manager, Bruce T. Moore perjured himself in the Bench Trail and then expose Mayor Stodola’s false statements provide the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office once he is called to the witness stand.
The purpose of this public correspondence is to spotlight how your tax contributions are being used to abuse the Little Rock Public when your elected tax stewards and the hire city manager violate the Public’s Civil and Constitutional Rights.  No one held a gun to Mayor Stodola’s head when he provided his Transcript Statement to City Attorney, Tom Carpenter via a phone call and City Manager, Bruce T. Moore also did not have a gun to his head when he told Judge Gruber all the above false statements under his Sworn Oath which are all Class C Felonies for Perjury.
I wish I was through with this spotlight account, but there is one more very important area the City Manager told the ultimate lie, which again he tells against himself under Sworn Oath.  This is most important as it was the first lie told to the police who told the lie to the prosecuting attorney who told the lie with his first words to Judge Gruber at my arraignment. 
City Manager, Bruce T. Moore got the corrupt ball rolling against me when he told Homicide Detective, Thomas Hudson on 1-22-15:  “On January 22, 2015 I took a tape statement from Mr.  Moore.  Mr. Moore stated that he told Mr. Skrable to not make contact with him by phone or email based on threats he made in 2007."

Now we all know the City Manager, Bruce T. Moore put me under a personal ban on 12-20-2007, but the false statement given the Homicide Detective, Thomas Hudson was used to obtain 3 Felony Affidavit of Arrests from Judge Leon Johnson which he considered to be “Facts Constituting Reasonable Cause” when he authorized my warrants.  The City Manager never filed a Police Incident on this supposed crime against him on 12-20-15 brought to the attention of my legal council at my arraignment in Judge Gruber's Court.
Based again, on direct contradiction of the City Manager himself, again, prove yet another count of perjury. 
When the Prosecuting Attorney asked City Manager, Bruce T. Moore on the witness stand: 
            PA:  Prior to this event (the email I sent on 1-20-15) has Mr. Skrable uh threatened you?

            Little Rock City Manager, Bruce T. Moore replies “NO”.
This is the first lie used to obtain the Affidavit of Arrest against me.

The second false statement City Manager, Bruce T. Moore told the Homicide Detective was I left 2 “Threatening” phone messages on Sue Hulsey’s phone on 1-15-15 when in fact this is a clear lie based on my phone records and Sue Hulsey’s sworn testimony.  One phone message was left on 9-4-14 and the second a week later on 9-11-14.  Again the false statement given the Homicide Detective, Thomas Hudson was used to obtain 3 Felony Affidavit of Arrests from Judge Leon Johnson which he considered to be “Facts Constituting Reasonable Cause” when he authorized my warrants.

And yet another false statement City Manager, Bruce T. Moore told the Homicide Detective was I left 2 “Threatening” phone messages on Sue Hulsey’s phone on 1-15-15 “Complaining about my ditches not being cut and cleaned”. Fortunate for my legal defense, the phone message never mentions the word “Ditches” to establish the third falsestatement given the Homicide Detective, Thomas Hudson that was used to obtain 3 Felony Affidavit of Arrests from Judge Leon Johnson
which he considered to be “Facts Constituting Reasonable Cause” when he authorized my warrants.

So to surmise quickly, City Manager, Bruce T. Moore told the Homicide Detective 3 false statements who then told the same lies to Judge Leon Johnson to authorize 3 Felony Affidavit of Arrest against me.

To conclude all these facts as simple as possible, the Taxpayers of Little Rock are providing their tax contributions to corrupt city employees, some elected and some hired to be used to abuse and violate the Public’s Civil and Constitutional Rights.
The deliberate lawless actions of Mayor Stodola, City Manager, Bruce T. Moore, Sue Hulsey, 9 elected Board of Directors are all being looked the other way by the Pulaski County Prosecutor’s Office and this direct Public Indifference is exactly what allows the Corruption at Little Rock City Hall to exist to be used to abuse the Little Rock Taxpayers. 

Our elected tax steward and the employees they hire are not employed to abuse the public or to violate our Civil and Constitutional Rights, these negative actions are deliberate and this lawlessness can not be tolerated or your Civil and Constitutional Rights will be next to be ignored and violated.  If everything is legitimate with the Mayor’s and City Manager’s actions, why the necessity to tell all the lies, if not to silence my Public Voice with Political Retaliation..???

God Bless and Save Little Rock.

2nd Letter: 

Dear Little Rock Taxpayers and Homeowners,

As many of you know from the accounts I have relayed surrounding the circumstance about my Political Retaliation at the hands of Mayor Stodola and City Manager Bruce  T. Moore the past 10 months, on the eve of going to court to appeal my conviction for crimes I did not commit.  This correspondence is provided to show how when the law is ignored in support of protecting corruption in government the public is directly penalized and paying the price for the lack of legitimate law enforcement.  Lies and Public Indifference to our Civil and Constitutional Rights is robbing each of us of real justice and ethical tax management.  Government Corruption is a cancer against society and when lies and tolerated and laws are ignored it only provides the fuel to continue to allow Government Corruption to be the norm as opposed to the rare exception.  Until the Little Rock Taxpayers and Homeowners stand up against the cancer that is eroding our city Lawlessness will continue to erode or Civil and Constitutional Rights to Honest and Ethical Tax Management and Representation.  The article below spotlights exactly how when the law is ignored and obvious corruption is ignored the result can only
be abuse to you, your loved ones and your neighbors who pay the price as your tax contributions fund the abuse.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


                           When Government Corruption is the Primary Focus the Law will Always Take a Backseat to Real Justice.


After making two attempts to find out why 2 service requests submitted to the Public Works Department of Little Rock were not completed, after my taxes had been paid to have these services delivered as well as paying premium salaries to be ignored, led me to leave 2 voice messages on the Public Work’s Secretary’s phone on 9-4-14 and again on 9-11-15.

Due to my frustration and my delivery of my inquiries, my 2 phone messages were considered and used as evidence to arrest me for Making 2 Terroristic Threats, which are Class D Felonies.  The Little Rock City Manager lied to the Homicide Detective assigned to supposedly “Investigate” my crimes but this particular Homicide Detective conducted no investigation but instead took not one but all three lies told to him by Little Rock City Manager, Bruce T. Moore and ran to Circuit Judge, Leon Johnson to then relay the City Manager’s lies which were used as “Facts Constituting Reasonable Cause” to authorize my 3 Felony Charges.

The problem right out of the gate is no investigation was conducted but the Homicide Detective Assigned to my case, he just took the Little Rock City Manager’s word that has since been proven to all be lies at (see the previous email labeled: Lying is the best Tool to Promote Corruption in Little Rock.)
Once Government corruption is the focus, the law will always take a backseat to real justice being served and provided by our local courts and elected judges. 

Below are some of the legal facts surrounding my case to directly show how the states laws are being ignored and disregarded in our courts to date.   I had a Bench Trial in Judge Gruber’s Court on 7-22-15 where the Defendant is prohibited from presenting his evidence in his own defense, Red Flag Number One.

PA = Prosecuting Attorney
PD = Public Defender


The Transcribe Audio Testimony is recorded below:

++++++++++++++++++++++
          (2) Terroristic threatening in the second degree is a Class A     misdemeanor.   5-13-301 (b)

  (b)(1) A person commits the offense of terroristic threatening in the second degree if, with the purpose of terrorizing another person, the person threatens to cause physical injury or property damage to another person.

          Speaker Beware.  When emotions get the best of people, sometimes words are spoken without thought that can have consequences beyond sleeping on the couch that night.  A heated argument can become a criminal one with the right mix of threats.  The law looks at the speaker's intent. 

The speaker must intend to fill the listener with intense fright.  It should also be noted that the speaker does not have to have an immediate ability to carry out the threat, i.e., threats over the phone can constitute terroristic threatening and threats do not have to be conveyed directly from speaker to listener.

Speaker Beware.  When emotions get the best of people, sometimes words are spoken without thought that can have consequences beyond sleeping on the couch that night.  A heated argument can become a criminal one with the right mix of threats.  The law looks at the speaker's intent.  The speaker must intend to fill the listener with intense fright. 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

            PA – “Did you believe that meant that he was going to cause you bodily harm?”

            PD – “Your honor, I continue to object.”

            Judge Gruber asks “Why.”

            PD – “Once again, what she takes something to mean is not relevant to the element of the crime, I think the question was, did she think was a threat to do                         harm, it is not relevant.

            Judge Gruber Sustained the Objection

            PA – “Were there things in that voice mail, describe your feelings after you that.”

            PD – “Your honor I am going to object to her feelings after that, the code under which my client is charged does not include what actually happened, in fact
                    the law says ‘she does not have to be terrorized.”  The statute is whether or not with the purpose to terrorize, my client threatened to cause
                    physical injury or property damage, not whether or not any person was in fact felt threatened by what was said, so frankly her feelings after        
                    receiving the voice mail on two separate times on the day in September.”

            Judge Gruber States “the fact that she was placed in apprehension itself is not an element of the offense so it is not relevant.”

            PA – “The state contends it is relevant.”

            Judge Gruber states a second time “The fact that she was placed in apprehension is not an element of the offense.”

            PA – “Yes your honor, the state understands.”

The second red Flag is after Judge Gruber upheld the color of the law three times after the objections of the Public Defender, then he himself disregarded the law’s guidelines and put himself in the accuser’s shoes and stated “If you sent me these phone messages and emails I would be concerned” then he directly contradicted his three sustained objections of my Public Defender and found me guilty based on his own feeling and not as the law directs to be based on “The Speaker’s Intent”.

Though the legal system affords me the ability and right to appeal Judge Gruber’s decision the law was obvious disregarded which created a further burden on me, the “Defendant” to prove my innocence and that my “Intent” was not to harm but to vent my frustrations for having my 2 service requests ignored for over 90 and 60 days respectively. 

Ignoring the law as written is not serving justice; it is disregarding it at the falsely accused public’s expense.  Luckily Judge Piazza has a reputation of being a fair judge so I feel confident once I am actually able to present evidence in my defense he as well as the Prosecuting Attorney will no longer see the merits of my charges and will drop the case and find me not guilty as I know my intent and it never was to harm or terrorize, it was merely and instance of frustration as a taxpayer being denied the city services I pay for and not receiving after 90 and 60 days which is grossly unreasonable.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I am sure not one person privy to this correspondence has not made a statement that others had misunderstood or taken the wrong way than what was intended to be conveyed when delivered, as I am sure something said directed by you was misunderstood or taken the wrong way.  People are not mind readers to include judges and prosecuting attorneys.  Only I know what my intent was when I relayed 2 phone messages (One which Judge Gruber’s established was not a threat as well as the Prosecuting Attorney as they Nol Processed one Felony Charge prior to the Bench trial) and sent the email to the Little Rock City Manager. 

Until the evidence I have gathered and presented is actual read and considered on the Intent I delivered it, I will continually have be falsely accused to appeal my case next to the Arkansas Supreme Court and then on to the U/S Supreme Court in Washington D.C. if necessary.  I will not rest and be falsely accused and convicted of crimes I did not commit because I am saddled with a judicial system more focused on corruption and not the law and real justice.

Until the law is focused on and My Intent becomes the focus to seek and serve justice I am forced to gather and prove the lawless actions of my accusers combined with and incompetent Homicide Detectives Non-Investigation that delivered nothing but the City Manager’s lies to obtain 3 Felony Terroristic Threatening Charges on me based on lies and not backed up by facts.

The Homicide Detective did not find out until 5 days after he arrested me that the 2 supposed threatening phone message were not made on 1-15-15 as told to him by Little Rock City Manager, Bruce T. Moore’s direct lie but he finally discovered the 2 calls were made in September of 2014 and did not even know the dates the calls were made (See below) the total incompetence of the LR Homicide Detectives “Investigation”.

The Pulaski County District Court Judge based his decision on how my Individual words sounded but did not make his decision based on the intent of my words pieced together as the law states - “The Law Looks at the Speakers Intent”. 

The State Statute 5-54-203 states - A person commits the offense of terroristic threatening in the second degree if, with the purpose of terrorizing another person, the person threatens to cause physical injury or property damage to another person.

Anyone that hears certain words that are damaging like Rape, Sodomy, Pedophile, Wife Beater, Anthrax, WMD's, Meth Amphetamine, Prostitution, Embezzler, Ponzie Scheme, Crooked Cop, Thief, Cheat, Liar all do create and can produce vivid images in each individuals mind.

In each persons mind these individual words produce a certain image unique to each individual regardless of where you live in the world.  The intent these words are used inin this Terroristic Threatening case is what the law is to focuson not the individual words themselves. 

In my bench trial this was not how my presiding judge interpreted the law and he based his decision on the images of the words and not the intent of the words. 
  
The judge himself stated three times during my Bench Trial that ”The fact my accusers were placed in apprehension itself is not an element of the offense so it is not relevant”.  Meaning how my accusers felt on their feelings was not the issue, the issue was my intent and were my actions “With the Purpose of Terrorizing another person“.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
  
It has been made to look unreasonable that the ignored and cheated public is prohibited from making a legitimate inquiry or venting their frustration at the cheated who ignore them after legitimate city service requests have been ignored for 60 and 90 days, now you are the bad guy after your tax contributions fund the abuse and provide premium salaries to your abusers and accusers.

This is not a just system, it is a corrupt system and it is completely funded by your tax contributions and if you have the audacity to complain or show your frustration at being cheated and abused you can bet in the City Of Little Rock, under the direction of the Stodola Good Ol’ Boy Society and His Cowboy Review combined with the incompetence of Chief Buckner’s staff you can bet your last nickel, you the disgruntled public, will pay the price and suffer the injustice of a corrupt government.


As long as Government Corruption is ignored and tolerated, the law and real justice will always take a backset at your expense while you pay for that privilege.

God Bless and Save Little Rock.
