Federal Law: 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.

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 & tortuously 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.

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 our tribe's hot dog 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" to me. 

It has been this way ever since. One big cover-up, can't deny this email though, it's a matter of record here is your initial paper trail, the corrupt bastards have been non-stop ever since...

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...

Judge: Arkansas State Police violated Freedom of Information Act

A recent ruling in the Sebastian County Circuit Court could affect the methods of the Arkansas State Police in releasing dash camera videos through Freedom of Information Act requests.
Circuit Judge Stephen Tabor ruled Monday that an Arkansas State Police public information officer committed five civil violations of the Freedom of Information Act last year when he relied on a “blanket policy” and failed to give valid reasons for not releasing the videos.
Circuit Judge Stephen Tabor ruled Monday that an Arkansas State Police public information officer committed five civil violations of the Freedom of Information Act last year when he relied on a “blanket policy” and failed to give valid reasons for not releasing the videos.
Bill Sadler, the state police public information officer, did not provide evidence there was an ongoing investigation in five of the six cases related to the FOIA requests for dash camera videos made by local attorney William Whitfield Hyman.
Sadler’s “testimony revealed the only basis for failing to produce the requested videos was the blanket policy of the State Police that every investigation remains open pending adjudication,” Tabor wrote.
The judge essentially agreed with the plaintiff, Hyman, that the dash camera videos had to be released and future requests be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Although Tabor agreed it was “proper” that the Arkansas State Police keep “all investigations open and ongoing until a criminal case has been adjudicated,” and “all criminal cases are closed the moment an arrest is made,” he found that “each case should be reviewed on an individual basis to determine if a particular investigation remains open.”
“While bright-line rules are certainly easier to interpret, the Court is of the opinion a case-by-case analysis of such matters are required by law,” Tabor added.
The judge states in his ruling the Arkansas Supreme Court in Martin Vs. Masteen stated “the trial court will have to decide, as a matter of fact in any such case, whether investigations are ongoing or not.”
“The judge made a good point on how Bill Sadler mentioned I could get the information through the prosecutor, but I did not represent all of these people in their criminal cases at the time the requests were made nor did I represent all of them criminally at the time of our FOIA hearing, and many of the requests were time sensitive, something prosecutors do not generally concern themselves with,” Hyman wrote in an email.
The one claim by Hyman dismissed by the judge concerned a complaint against an Arkansas State Trooper that was still under investigation. All other requested dash camera videos were released to Hyman.
Arkansas State Police Director Col. Bill Bryant said in an emailed statement that he has not yet met with legal counsel inside the Attorney General’s Office to review the results from this FOIA case .
“Meanwhile in the coming weeks we will meet internally to discuss options that will conform with Judge Tabor’s decision,” Bryant stated.
No legal fees were assessed in the ruling. Senior Assistant Attorney General Colin R. Jorgensen represented Sadler in Sebastian County Circuit Court March 3.
“Hyman’s theory — that the State Police should not be permitted to claim an ongoing investigation after an arrest or after a charge is filed but before adjudication is all cases — is inconsistent with the appellate decisions addressing the ongoing investigation exemption” Jorgensen wrote in his argument.
Sadler has a long history with the press, both as a reporter and a public information officer. He is in his 20th year in that role with the state police. He said he also worked for 20 years at KARK Channel 4 in Little Rock and several years in newspapers. His family owned the Cleveland County Herald at Rison for 70 years until 2002 when it was purchased by Britt Talent. Stan Sadler, Bill Sadler’s brother, still writes sports for the Cleveland County Herald, Talent said by phone Tuesday.
Bill Sadler said the Arkansas State Police receives about 700 requests a year for various items through the Freedom of Information Act and 95 percent of them are from attorneys. In Hyman’s post-trial brief, it was noted that Bill Sadler was found to have violated the FOIA one other time.

Jury awards $415,000 in suit against Josh Hastings over suspect's fatal shooting

Jury finds ex-Arkansas officer liable in fatal shooting

A federal jury on Thursday found a former Arkansas police officer liable in the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old boy and awarded $415,000 in damages to the teenager's mother.
The jury ruled in favor of the mother, Sylvia Perkins, in her wrongful death lawsuit against former Little Rock officer Josh Hastings.
The verdict in the lawsuit comes after two manslaughter trials against Hastings, 31, ended in hung juries and prosecutors declined to try him a third time.
Perkins is the mother of Bobby Moore III, who Hastings shot and killed in 2012 when he fired into a car carrying burglary suspects outside a Little Rock apartment complex.
Hastings testified that the car was driving toward him and he yelled for the driver to stop before he opened fire.
"As the vehicle gets five feet away, I thought they were going to run over me," Hastings testified. "I fired my weapon at the driver to eliminate the threat."
Keontay Walker and Jeremiah Johnson both testified during the civil lawsuit that they were in the car that night and that it was backing away from Hastings.
Hastings was fired by Little Rock police after an internal investigation found the shooting was not justified.
Former Little Rock Police Chief Stuart Thomas and the city of Little Rock were earlier dismissed from the lawsuit by U.S. District Judge Brian Miller.
