Little Rock: Top 10 Most Dangerous City Under 200,000

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.**


I'm still in the interview and due diligence stage of my investigation into the correlation of the lack of GENUINE community policing and how that relates to our rising murder rate.
I will focus upon the citizens, city leadership and how their interactions and/or lack of positive interactions most likely significantly contributes to said escalating murder rate.
Little Rock, Arkansas, tops the list as the most dangerous city under 200,000 for the second year in a row. The top three is rounded out by Rockford, Illinois and Springfield, Missouri. This list, which includes cities with populations between 100,000 and 200,000, is based on data released Monday by the FBI. 

Look at the slide show below to see the full list of the Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities in America under 200,000.

A food truck worker was shot and injured as he and others were closing up for the night in southwest Little Rock, according to police.

The Little Rock Police Department responded around 10:20 p.m. Tuesday to a report of an attempted robbery at 7521 Geyer Springs Road, where Samantha Taqueria II had set up in a parking lot to serve customers.

According to a report, two witnesses said they were cleaning with the victim, 38-year-old Primitivo Bautista of Little Rock, inside the taco truck when two people entered the vehicle.

At least one of the assailants pointed a small, black gun with an extended magazine at the workers while demanding money, police said.

The food-truck employees then told the would-be robbers that they did not have any money inside the taco truck, and had placed the cash inside the nearby Dulceria Clarissa store, the report states.

Citing a language barrier, one of the witnesses said he had a hard time explaining to the assailants that he would need to return to the truck to get the keys to the locked building, the report said.

The witness said that when he walked toward the truck, another witness sitting in a vehicle in the parking lot put that vehicle in reverse. That prompted at least one of the would-be robbers to say, "They are going to call the cops," the report said.

Police say both assailants ran toward an apartment behind a gas station across the street while shooting the gun about three or four times. One bullet struck Bautista in the chest, the report states.

Bautista was taken to CHI St. Vincent Infirmary in Little Rock, according to police.

The extent of his injuries was not immediately clear Wednesday morning, though a responding officer noted that the victim was unable to provide a statement "due to the severity of his injury."

One robber was described as a black man in his mid-20s who stood between 6 feet and 6 feet 6 inches tall and has a thin build. He was wearing a black or dark brown shirt, dark pants and white tennis shoes at the time, authorities said.

The other assailant was listed as a black man in his early 20s who stands between 5 feet and 5 feet 6 inches tall. He was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt during the robbery.

No arrests had been made at the time of the report.

-Brandon Riddle
Most might not equate Arkansas with violence and danger, but the fact of the matter is that the state capital, Little Rock, is one of the most dangerous places to live in the entire country. In fact, it’s probably the single most dangerous mid-sized city in America.
If you want to know what’s going wrong in Little Rock, here are five reasons why the city is considered one of the most dangerous in the country currently.

1. TOTAL CRIME

If you are looking at middle sized cities in America, then Little Rock, Arkansas is easily the most dangerous one to live in currently. It’s ironic to note that in 2011, Forbes named the city the second cleanest city in the country. But just because there’s no garbage on the street, does not mean that it’s not become an increasingly dangerous place to live in over the last several years.
The total crime rate has really sky-rocketed in Little Rock recently. According to the most recent stats, there are about 9,500 crimes committed per 100,000 people. So when you do the math, you have a one in 21 chance of being a victim of a crime as a citizen and resident of Little Rock. That is a statistic that is frightening for people who live in the city, no matter what part of the city they inhabit. And it looks as if it’s a statistic that shows no signs of getting better.

2. PROPERTY CRIME

The property crime rates are not much better. This is another huge concern of people who live in the city. Even if you want to move out of the city because of these trends, it’s going to be hard to get a good price for your property if you want to sell it. The truth of the matter is that your property’s value goes down as property crime rates go up, and that’s the case in Little Rock currently.
According to the stats, there are about 8,000 property crimes committed for every 100,000 people. And that means that there is a one in 24 chance that you will be the victim of a property related crime if you own property in the city. This is leading to a lot of people trying to leave the city, and it certainly is not good for future investments in Little Rock.

3. MURDER

The murder rate in Little Rock is also alarmingly high. When looking at the stats of all of the mid-sized cities in America, Little Rock has the third highest murder rate in that category. The stats don’t lie. You have a one in 8,000 chance of getting murdered if you live in Little Rock, and that’s a very scary statistic to consider.
According to the stats, there are about 25 murders committed for every 100,000. That might not sound like a lot, but when you consider that one in every 8,000 people in the city is killed, it proves to be a very alarming statistic. Of course, the murders are often linked to other crimes, such as burglary. There is also plenty of gang violence in Little Rock these days, another concern that is causing a lot of people to question whether or not they should stay in the city or get out of Dodge.

4. VIOLENT CRIMES

Little Rock is definitely a violent city in a country that seems to be enamored with violence. The stats say that the rates of violent crimes are constantly increasing in Little Rock, and there are no signs that there will be any change in this trend. The most recent stats say that there are about 1,500 violent crimes committed for every 100,000 people, which means that you have a one in 150 chance of being the victim of a violent crime in Little Rock.
Stats like this are very troubling. They are making locals think about leaving the city, and they are keeping new people from coming. And that’s not only new residents, but these violent crime statistics are deterring potential investors and business people from coming to Little Rock, which is also effecting the economy negatively. It’s a vicious cycle that does not seem to have an end to it.

5. GANG VIOLENCE

Everyone knows that gang violence is a huge problem in Little Rock, and it seems as if it has always been one. Many people will recall the famous documentary that was released in the 90s about Little Rock’s gang culture. Even though progress was made since then, it seems that gangs are becoming fashionable once again in Little Rock.
It might be isolated to certain areas of the city now, but it’s still a major problem. And it also seems that the gang members these days are younger and younger. Police officials have said that gang activity is on the rise once again. Kids are joining these gangs at the age of 10 and 12 already and this is leading to an increase in violent crimes. In fact, the rise in gang activity can definitely be linked to the recent increase in both violent crimes and murders.

Little Rock Police Dept. Accused of Violating Federal RICO Statutes

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.

**Citizen complaint processes that treat complainants as adversaries.**
Additionally, 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.

"Obviously this was a LESS than complete investigation, luckily for you, you get a do-over. This letter here, I wouldn't line my birdcage with it, if I had one. But you sent this crap to me without even going through the rest of the comments on the SAME thread! Maybe because you all were trying your best NOT to find anything. Now you're stuck between lies.
I suggest you all get it together over there. I'm done tolerating this unprofessional half-ass junk. DO YOUR JOB or get out of it so we can find someone who can and will. This is what happens when the highest ranking officer in charge of the IAD is a mere LT. Oh, it's obviously by design and I find it corruptly disgusting. The community will have to do something about it and I have every single intention to make sure that happens.

Police release Walker arrest video; shows cops accusing him of being 'race baiter'


Police release Walker arrest video; shows cops accusing him of being 'race baiter'

UPDATE: ALL charges have been dropped on both Representative John Walker and associate, Omavi Kushukuru.

Arkansas State Rep. who pushed for law to film police, arrested for filming police


Ark Times Reports:
Officer Jeff Thompson

Arkansas State Representative John Walker was arrested on Monday morning, Sept. 26, 016.

Police release Walker arrest video; shows cops accusing him of being 'race baiter'

Little Rock police were in the process of arresting a stopped driver for theft of property around 11:30 a.m. at 9th and Commerce streets.
Officer Jason Roberts

Walker, 79, walked into the scene of the traffic stop and began filming the incident.  The arrested driver asked what Walker was doing, to which Walker responded, "I'm making sure they don't kill you."

After escorting the driver to the patrol car in handcuffs, police found that the passenger of the stopped call also had an outstanding arrest warrant.

As the police were arresting the passenger, Walker and another individual approached the scene in a "antagonistic and provocative manner."  Officers repeatedly told both individuals to stop and stay away from the scene.

Walker told the police he was not going to leave and instructed the police to arrest him.  Police obliged and charged him with interfering with government operations.  The other individual was also arrested.

At the station, Walker informed the jailers that he only wanted to file a complaint "against the white officers."

Police release Walker arrest video; shows cops accusing him of being 'race baiter'

The Little Rock police department released copies of dash camera footage of a traffic stop that led to the arrests of state Rep. John Walker, 79, for obstructing governmental operations, a charge later dropped.

ArkansasMatters.com further reports: The email that Little Rock Police Department Chief Kenton Buckner sent to officers late Wednesday night has the subject line "Stay Professional." It reads, in part, "There are multiple opinions about how the entire incident was handled." Walker was issued a letter of apology from the LRPD that he rejected. On Thursday, he and Shukur held a news conference to discuss what happened. "With these tapes, you saw that we did nothing," Walker said, speaking of dash camera video from police cruisers the LRPD had released on Wednesday.


Walker and Shukur spoke for nearly an hour about the events that led to their arrest and also about what they say is the mistreatment of black people in Central Arkansas.
Walker says he and Shukur were peacefully exercising their right to record police interactions when they were approached by officers who made disparaging comments.

Minority neighborhoods, they say, are targeted by overzealous police, but the majority of the time it goes unnoticed.

The footage released today comes from four cameras and include an extended amount of filming as two teams of officers — each with a trainee — handle the traffic stop of a car without a license. The driver and a passenger en route to a doctor's appointment had outstanding minor warrants.

Walker walks up during the stop and begins filming with a cell phone from across the street, an activity noticed by cops on the scene, some of whom know Walker. In time, two officers cross the street to ask Walker what he's doing and why. He identified himself but said he didn't need to explain his actions.

Officers explained the traffic stop and said the driver was being treated with "total respect." They also said they agreed he had a right to observe.

The conversation grew heated, however, as Walker explained his interest in treatment of black suspects and made reference to police use of deadly force. That raised the ire of an officer who asked if Walker had ever been a police officer. He questioned whether Walker understood the challenges police face. One officer called Walker a "race baiter" and asked if he'd be interested if police had stopped a white person. The officer said Walker had been trying to film police for years and was just trying to provoke.

Film in another patrol car, taking the driver to jail, has audio of an older officer telling a younger black female officer who'd made the stop about Walker: "His main purpose was to be arrested." Walker, he said, had been "a thorn in the side of the police department" since he joined the force.

The treatment of the people originally stopped seemed calm, even amiable. Officers tried to look for a way around jailing of the man who used a wheelchair, hoping to just issue a citation.

KARK has posted a separate 19-minute video clip that eventually gets to the discussion between Walker and two officers.

Walker has rejected an apology for the arrest and Police Chief Kenton Buckner has said he anticipates a lawsuit over the encounter. The department is investigating officers' actions in the case. The city has maintained the obstruction charge against Omavi Kushukuru (or Shukur). He is alleged to have walked between the patrol car that made the initial stop and the car in which two people were found to have warrants.

A female officer in a later arriving unit said somebody walked from across the street into the scene of the stop.

To Change Police Practices, A Push For Liability Insurance In Minneapolis

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.

**Citizen complaint processes that treat complainants as adversaries.**


NPR REPORTS: 

AROUND THE NATION

To The Change Police Practices, A Push For Liability Insurance In Minneapolis















Michelle Gross (right) is a member of the Committee for Professional Policing, 
which is proposing a ballot measure in Minneapolis that would require police officers 
to carry liability insurance.
Martin Kaste for NPR
When cities settle cases of inappropriate or illegal force by police officers, they pay — a lot. Chicago alone has paid out more than half a billion dollars since 2004.
Yet some advocates say all those payouts haven't had much of an effect on policing practices.
In Minneapolis, longtime activist Michelle Gross says when cities pay damages, individual police officers often aren't held accountable, which means they're not likely to change their behavior. That's why she and a group calling itself the Committee for Professional Policing are now pushing a completely different approach.
"We are working to get a measure on the ballot that would require police officers to carry professional liability insurance," she says.
Some officers already carry liability insurance, on a voluntary basis. Gross' group wants to make it a condition of employment in Minneapolis. Their proposal would have the city cover the cost of basic insurance, but any premium increases due to misconduct would be the officer's responsibility.
Dave Bicking, also a member of the ballot campaign, says the beauty of this scheme is that bad cops would pay more; the worse the track record, the more expensive the premium.
"We have one officer [in Minneapolis] who's had five significant settlements against him just in a year and a half," Bicking says. "Someone like that could never, ever buy insurance. They'd have to charge him $60[000]-$70,000 a year. That officer would be gone."
The plan has a simple appeal. But police call it simplistic.
"I always equate police work to, like, basketball. If you're not getting any fouls, you're not playing hard enough," says Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis.
He says if cops have to start worrying about insurance rates, they're liable to become overly cautious."Anybody can get in the squad car and drive around and put the blinders on, and not investigate suspicious circumstances," he says. "If you don't do that proactive police work, your likelihood of being sued is a lot less."
Even some of those hoping for change in police practices see a problem there. "I'd have to see what it is that they're going to use to determine what's going to increase that premium," says Michael Quinn, a retired Minneapolis officer, who wrote a book about misconduct and now teaches police ethics. He's not sure insurance companies should be the ones evaluating an officer's performance. "I don't trust the system to do that right."
Still, he sympathizes with the activists' goal, because he believes the current system isn't working. Quinn says the beneficial feedback that's supposed to happen after a lawsuit — when the officer is disciplined or gets a lecture — just isn't happening enough.
"I think the poor management and the lack of the supervision is what's leading to this stuff," he says. "The cops aren't being held accountable, the supervisors aren't holding them accountable, and we're going to continue to have this money being paid out."
Police unions in Minneapolis and other cities say part of the problem is that city councils are too quick to pay damages, even on frivolous complaints, just to save money on litigation. They'd like to see cities taking more plaintiffs to court, which — they believe — would decrease the number of brutality complaints and paint a more positive picture of police conduct.
University of Chicago Law assistant professor John Rappaport has been studying the question of how and why cities pay out damages on behalf of their police. He says there's often a disconnect between payouts and accountability.
"We're very much stuck in a rut, with American policing," he says. He has been investigating whether cities that pay damages out of their own funds — cities such as Minneapolis and Chicago — are less likely to hold officers accountable than cities that have liability insurance.
Rappaport hasn't looked at the question of whether a requirement of individual policies would affect police behavior, largely because he knows of no police department that requires it. He has doubts about whether it would work — for one thing, he doesn't think premiums would really go up enough to discourage bad behavior.

"This moment is really causing people to be interested in shaking things up," he says. "I don't know whether this is the right answer or not ... but we won't ever know until someone tries it and we get a chance to see how it works."But Rappaport says he "loves" the fact that the Minneapolis activists are proposing this.
The Committee for Professional Policing has until July 5 to collect signatures — at last count, it was within 509 valid signatures of the number required, according to the Minneapolis City Clerk.
If the committee collects enough, it will then be up to the City Council to decide whether the proposal is legal (the police union argues it's not legal under state law). If the council approves it, it will be on the ballot this fall.


WE ARE AT WAR: #BettyShelby
"Officer Betty Shelby shoots an unarmed man, #TerrenceCrutcher for looking like a "bad dude" ?? And there are people out there mad that black people (AND others) are taking a knee when the national anthem is being sung. They are mad that blacks don't stand and be proud to be in a country they live in and does NOTHING to protect blacks from being slaughtered by cops. 
There's clearly a war going on and minority Americans are the target.
GOOD COPS WHERE ARE YOU???? ALWAYS CONVENIENTLY QUIET!! ESPECIALLY BLACK COPS!"
