Former LRPD Asst. Chief Eric Higgins WINS! 
Sheriff of Pulaski County, AR

The West Feliciana Houma-Choctaw Tribe congratulates Sheriff-elect Eric Higgins of his most impressive and clear victory over the old status quo baton-pass of Doc Holliday. Carl Minden truly represented more of the same old bullshit, indeed. 


Eric Higgins was elected last night in a historic victory that makes him the county's first-ever African American sheriff.

The Houma-Choctaw Nation has witnessed Carl Minden and friends within their corrupt version of "Internal affairs", look the other way and assist the Pulaski County Special School District discriminate against Native American Creole Indians within their public schools.  

http://pcssdfraudwatch.blogspot.com/2008/02/pulaski-county-special-school-district.html

We genuinely look forward to working with Sheriff Eric Higgins on various community efforts focused upon bringing about TRUE community policing in Pulaski County and the city of Little Rock, metro area, in the near future.


Sheriff Eric Higgins is a proud Little Rock resident.

CSI for Pulaski County
The key to reducing crime in our community is not enforcement. It is prevention. An effective crime prevention program begins and ends with a community-focused approach. It will be necessary to make arrest and issue citations; that cannot be what drives us. We must be safety-driven.

That means working with the community to identify issues that cause an unsafe environment to exist. To sustain a community and law enforcement partnership it is critical that the Sheriff’s Department has and maintains the trust of the community.

To achieve this the Sheriff’s Department must have integrity as the base of everything it does. Whether interacting with members of our community on the street, making a traffic stop or event when an arrest is made or when a person is detained in our detention center, we must act with integrity - we must do what is right and just. 

This is what I will bring to Pulaski County as your Sheriff.  I will bring CSI to Pulaski County:

Community Focused

Safety Driven

Integrity Based


It is through this community policing approach that we will see a reduction in crime in our community.

Good Cop/Bad Cop

"Ice Cube -- Good Cop/Bad Cop (June 6, 2017)"
The hook of the song samples Ice Cube's verse from N.W.A's "Fuck tha Police". The song was released as a protest against corrupt law enforcement.




CORRUPTION SUCKS BLOG: its purpose 

Overview

Though often course in language and chronically straight to the point, the primary goal of Corruption Sucks Blog is to provide the tools, research, resources, and news to help good government, cops, community leaders, victims, and other concerned citizens address the complex issue of governmental & especially police misconduct. 

Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for everyone to get up to speed on how prevelant governmental corruption and misconduct actually are in everyday local government. Especially regarding police misconduct and the woeful lack of police oversight at the local levels of government supervision.

This way, more energy can be constructively invested on real progress, especially in law enforcement and how they deal with members of the community. 

Most especially if the officer resides in another city or town other than where he works and carries a gun & badge. This basically defines him as a "mercenary cop" from the start and NOT a member of the community in which he has been authorized by the city to use deadly force if he feels that his "life is in danger".

What is a bad cop?

"Bad cops" are law enforcement employees that are not meeting job requirements. Many of the employees who fall within this category are not bad people, but rather, just need quality oversight to keep them on the right path.

On one end of the spectrum, bad cops are criminals with badges. On the other end of the spectrum, bad cops are employees who are not qualified for their jobs & either require additional training or seperation. For example, they have difficulty authoring accurate police reports, they have difficulty keeping their personal biases at home, etc.

Because almost every police department has good cops and bad cops...

Reality is if this world was actually as most people think it is, we would not have independent investigations, audits & police internal affairs departments. This anti-corruption blog site would not exist. 

Reality is that almost every police department has both good cops and bad cops. 

The problem is that many police departments refuse to acknowledge or proactively address the bad cops within their ranks.

So, as far as what does a "good" cop look like? I'm sure that there are a great many cops that are quite "good" at executing their duties. 

With that said, we offer you this thought...

How good can any person truly be while witnessing a co-worker violate the rights of another human being, yet does absolutely nothing about it? How can such a so-called good person call such a criminal amongst their ranks an equal partner in honor and justice?  If you venture to call him comrade and friend, are you not in some way torn from the very same blue cloth?

How could this so-called good person remain silent to such racketeer-styled predicate crimes in exchange for a paycheck and benefits while cowering behind some mafia-like blue wall? That is obviously the price that many have gladly decided to pay in exchange for one's honor and soul-  a job. 

Is this that higher standard that we have heard so much about? Is this what the call of duty, oath and honor now look like? 

I would surely hope not.

We can believe that there exists police departments that do not have a single bad cop; and conversely, we can believe that there exists police departments that do not have a single good cop. It first starts from within, then maybe we can start talking about public trust. 

The public has absolutely no way of knowing which cop is pulling them over, knocking on their door, impeding their path, demanding to be obeyed...or else.

E. Pluribus Unum.

LR DIRECTOR DORIS WRIGHT USES SHAM EXCUSE OF "I FORGOT MY PASSWORD" TO TRY AND AVOID RESPONDING TO A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST

Saturday, April 14, 2018

DIRECTOR DORIS WRIGHT USES SHAM EXCUSE OF "I FORGOT MY PASSWORD" TO TRY AND AVOID RESPONDING TO A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST

CITY DIRECTOR DORIS WRIGHT - WILL DO ANYTHING TO AVOID RESPONDING TO A FOI REQUEST

For the past year, we have sent FOI requests to the city of Little Rock for emails of board members.

Each time our request included those of Ward 6 Director Doris Wright. Wright has used the personal email addresses and the response we receive is that she deletes her emails after opening and reading them and they have no records to produce. Right.

Wright uses those email addresses for city business and one is listed as the one for the West Central Community Center. 




As far as we can tell, Wright is the only City Director that uses their email as point of contact for a Community Center.

We were surprised and amused at the latest response from the city in regard to a recent request for copies of Wright's email correspondence. Look at what the response was.



Poor L. Lamor Williams is not the sharpest tool in the shed, or else he would not have repeated the ignorant, flimsy excuse given to him by Doris Wright.



Only fools like Wright and Williams would tell us such a thing. 

Any person of average intelligence knows how to recover or change an email password.  And if they didn't, they could Google it and find our how to easily and quickly do it.




We wonder if Wright is telling the truth about deleting emails as she frequently utters the phrase "I slept since then" at board meetings to cover her lack of recollection about something. 

How does she keep track of issues that constituents contact her about?

How does she follow up on promises she makes in emails? 

We know one thing for certain about Wright, she began using a littlerock.gov email address after our publisher addressed the city board with concerns about city directors using personal email addresses for city business.





We exposed some of Wright's shenanigans dealing with the West Central Community Center in this post.

We have more about her coming soon. Stay tuned.

BOND SET AT $60,000 FOR STACY DIGBY, RECENTLY RESIGNED MAYOR OF HIGHFILL, IN SEXUAL ASSAULT CASE INVOLVING A MINOR

Bad Government In Arkansas

BOND SET AT $60,000 FOR STACY DIGBY, RECENTLY RESIGNED MAYOR OF HIGHFILL, IN SEXUAL ASSAULT CASE INVOLVING A MINOR

STACY DIGBY - FORMER HIGHFILL MAYOR AND LAY MINISTER REAPING WHAT HE SOWED

Bond was set Wednesday at $60,000 for Stacy Charles Digby, the now former Mayor of Highfill who resigned shortly before being arrested and charged with two felony offenses stemming from his inappropriate and illegal sexual contact with a female minor.




Benton County District Court Judge Chris Griffin had initially set Digby's bond at $30,000 but later doubled it.
 
BENTON COUNTY DISTRICT COURT JUDGE CHRIS GRIFFIN
Apparently Digby began his relationship with the minor a year after his divorce in 2011,  At that time the girl was 12 and was attending the Highfill United Methodist Church with her grandparents.

Digby's home is located next door the the church.

When first questioned by authorities the 17 year old denied any sexual contact with Digby. However, she later detailed their relationship and confirmed that she and Digby had sexual relations.




It appears that there was some effort by Digby to not portray him as a youth minister but rather as a lay minister in covert contact between him and S.M. while the investigation was underway.



It is mentioned in the affidavit that Digby provided an LG cellphone to S.M. to use and Digby had hidden his computer and had hidden an external hard drive in his parents milk barn. You can imagine what was on his computer and the external hard drive. Perhaps some child pornography charges will soon follow.

A former girlfriend of Digby's, Amy Trammell,  related his confession to her of his illegal sexual relationship with the minor.



 Digby also told Trammell that he was going to marry S.M. when she turned 18.


AMY TRAMMELL


The 13 year old sister of the victim , identified as "S.S.M." provided some illuminating details.

 

The complete 30 page affidavit can be viewed by clicking here

A poor job was done in the redaction of the document as we were able to identify the victim from reading it in only a few minutes.  We were also able to identify one church member that brought concerns to the authorities.






The minister of the Highfill United Methodist Church was interviewed as the victim is a parishioner and investigators thought he might have some information to shed light on the sick situation. Wrong. Rev. Hall has has been quoted by the media as saying the allegations and charges against his pal Digby are false. You can hear him say that in this news report.


REV. RUSS  HALL CROSSES LINE IN HIS SUPPORT OF DIGBY

The United Methodist Church takes a dim view of they type of  behavior and actions Digby was involved in with the minor and has a method to remove him from its membership role as detailed in its Book of Discipline.

 

Rev. Hall's comments will no doubt remove him as a participant in any action the local church takes as his bias has been clearly demonstrated.  Maybe he needs to read the affidavit and keep his mouth shut for the good of the UMC and his congregation.

DIGBY LIKES THEM YOUNG



They need to get Digby out of the Highfill United Methodist Church to protect other minor females from becoming his next victim. Might be a good idea for the District Superintendent and Bishop to look for a new minister at the Highfill UMC as well.

Don't expect the Arkansas United Methodist Church Bishop Gary Mueller to have anything to say about this matter. 

We are still waiting on him to answer our question about the UMC returning the $100K bribe that former Jefferson County Judge and retired UMC minister Henry "Hank" Wilkins accepted from lobbyist Rust Cranford when Wilkins was a state legislator and he passed on to his pastoral charge, St. James UMC in Pine Bluff.
 
GARY MUELLER - ARKANSAS UMC BISHOP

We never met a UMC Bishop that had any spine or much intelligence and Mueller is no exception. Most are pompous blowhards that could not find their way out of a paper bag.

Stay tuned for updates.


***UPDATE***

According to posts on the Facebook account of the S.M.'s grandmother, S. M. has been missing for 22 hours.


We attempted to contact the Benton County Sheriff's Office but could not reach any media contacts.  We they returned our call (using the number 501-712-2312) we were on the phone with a content sharing partner in NWA and did not recognize the number as being from the BCSO as they are in the 479 area code.  A nasty voicemail message was left complaining that we did not answer.

BLACK POLICE OFFICERS FILE CIVIL RIGHTS LAWSUIT AGAINST CITY OF LITTLE ROCK - THEIR ATTORNEY ATTEMPTS TO BLOCK INVITED SUPPORTIVE BLOGGERS FROM ATTENDING THE PRESS CONFERENCE

Bad City of Little Rock

This blog is dedicated to exposing and documenting miseeds and misadventures of departments and employees of the city of Little Rock, Arkansas. 

BLACK POLICE OFFICERS FILE CIVIL RIGHTS LAWSUIT AGAINST CITY OF LITTLE ROCK - THEIR ATTORNEY ATTEMPTS TO BLOCK INVITED SUPPORTIVE BLOGGERS FROM ATTENDING THE PRESS CONFERENCE

IS MIKE LAUX REALLY A MONEY-GRUBBING, CARPETBAGGING ROAMING SHYSTER?

This was another bad week for swamped Little Rock City Attorney Tom Carpenter, troubled City Manager Bruce Moore and befouled LRPD Chief Kenton Tremar Buckner.

The roaming State of Chicago licensed attorney Mike Laux - yes Laux has no license to practice law in Arkansas, except in federal courts- something he never told potential clients that sought him out for representation that reached out to us -  filed a lawsuit Monday morning and held a press conference to lay out all the details. 



We say that Laux is a roamer  because we can't pin down where he actually has a real office (we will delve deeper into this in a future post). The information on his webpage is out of date. His LinkedIn page work experience does not match what you can find using a Google search to see what he has posted himself about his own work experience.  We assume he omits firms that he has been associated with in an "of counsel" position when he wears out his welcome or they have finished using him for a particular case in which they needed an smart-ass, over-confident shyster to take a deposition. 

According to city attorney Tom Carpenter, Laux is good at taking depositions (we suspect because he like to badger folks) and has used Laux to speak to classes when he taught courses at the Bowen School of Law. This is ironic as Laux rips Carpenter just about every chance he can.  
The complaint was filed in federal court Monday morning on behalf of LRPD officers Sgt. Willie Davis, Lt. Earnest Whitten, Sgt. Derrick Threadgill, and former LRPD officer Jackie Parker. Laux said Lt. Johnny Gilbert Jr. and Capt. Tonya Washington will join the complaint as soon as they receive letters saying they have the right to sue from EEOC. 

The lawsuit seeks compensatory damages to make up for lost wages, Laux said, but also seeks to enjoin the city from continuing what Laux and the plaintiffs call racist and "uneven" practices in hiring, discipline and promotions. Laux said the LRPD has a clear hierarchy, with older white male officers at the top and black female officers at the bottom.

You can watch an edited version of the press conference.


Or the raw footage we shot of the entire press conference.


Laux was extremely confrontational with fellow blogger, Chef Ean Lee Bordeaux. Laux did not want Bordeaux to cover the press conference for his blog, Corruption Sucks and went so far as to try and snatch Bordeaux's camera.


Laux was butt-hurt about a post Bordeaux made on Facebook back in August 2017, in which Bordeaux referred to Laux in a specific descriptive manner.




Laux then went after the publisher of this blog threatening him with the same banishment as he did Bordeaux, until he found out that one of his clients had personally invited him to attend. Laux tucked tail and went to the corner.




After the press conference Laux made an weak attempt at an apology for his extremely unprofessional behavior before the press conference. Our publisher told him to forget about it and move on. Shit happens, especially when you are dealing with shysters.

We thought that Laux had settled down and were surprised and confused when he demanded that we remove a video we posted on our YouTube channel about the press conference.  He did that in a strange, unprofessional series of emails.
Laux Email Chain by Russ Racop on Scribd


In the emails, Laux flat out lied. 

He claims that he told the publisher that the videos he made of the press conference, the one attended by reporters from the Arkansas Times, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, KARK, FOX16, and KATV  and made video or audio recordings, if shown would be damaging to his clients.

At no time did Laux ever utter that to our publisher.

You can read his emails above and see that for yourself. 

You can also listen to the only voicemail message he left. He called the publisher twice, but only left a message on the second call.



If a "man" will lie about the little things, like details, he will lie about anything. 

To quote Laux, "the truth is the truth." 

The truth is Laux is a liar.

We suspect that the reason Laux did not want anyone to see the videos is because of what he said. Perhaps he made a misstatement of facts.  Perhaps his rambling diatribe might make him look like an idiot. Perhaps the story he told about a childhood event was evidence of some deep rooted bias he wants to keep hidden. We have no idea why he wanted the video record of what he said taken down as once Laux was pressed by the publisher he resorted to name calling and refused to answer questions. Typical shyster move.

We hope that the officers made the right choice in selecting Laux to represent them. Laux might get the city to settle and write out a check, the city seems to do that an awful lot to make real and frivolous lawsuits go away. 

But this lawsuit will not change the way the Little Rock Police Department operates. That is also the unfortunate truth.

The publisher of this blog has been a staunch supporter of the right of Little Rock Black Police Officers Association to exist and has stood up for its members time and time again as a founding member of Citizens for Truth & Credibility in Little Rock Leadershipin this blogand before the Little Rock Board of Directors as a citizen and candidate for the board.



That will not change and that is also the truth.

#TimeForChange #CleanOutLRCItyHall


***UPDATE***

 We obtained an email that Laux sent Bordeux in which he admits that he "procrastinated" when representing him.  That admission can get Laux in trouble here in Arkansas even thought he holds no Arkansas license to practice law.



The Arkansas Office of the Committee on Professional Conduct, that agency that keeps an eye on attorneys, takes a dim view of lawyers that break our rules and laws.


Maybe Laux should brush up on our rules and laws if he is going to be operating in our state. 
 






 
Stay tuned, there is a lot more to come of this story.
