Well-known local minister confronts City Board about corruption in Little Rock as exposed in a whistleblower letter published on Corruption Sucks Blog
It turns out that the LRBPA ( Little Rock Black Police Officers Association) had received the same anonymous letter that Rev. Johnson had and they had given a copy to Chief Buckner and to Moore at least a month before Rev. Johnson provided it to board members on May 16th.
Rev. Johnson had a single copy of the letter and the city clerk took it, made copies and gave one to each board member at the May 16th meeting. Was Moore provided a copy of the letter already in his possession?
In fact, this anonymous letter had been making the rounds as far back as March.
It was posted on the blog, Corruption Sucks.
City Attorney Tom Carpenter admitted that he passed erroneous information to Moore regarding what Rev. Johnson had said at the Mary 16th board meeting.
Then Rev. Johnson addressed the board about the defaming email and remarks City Manager Bruce Moore had made at a March meeting of the LRBPA.
City Manager Moore sat glaring at Rev. Johnson with his arms crossed. When Rev. Johnson's time slot ended, he went back to his seat. Moore can been seen in the video turning toward Rev. Johnson and making comments. Moore can be seen in the video getting up and heading towards Rev. Johnson. All the time Rev. Johnson can be heard saying "he is harassing me".
Tom Carpenter, the city attorney stated that he had issued an apology to Rev. Johnson and did so again. City Manager Bruce Moore said nothing.
We have been trying to get answers from Mayor Stodola, City Manager Bruce Moore, City Attorney Tom Carpenter and Chief Buckner since March about Chief Bucker and the accidents and they have yet to provide any documents that provide exemptions for officers to not issue tickets in accident to law enforcement officers or a response about the illegal practice.
