PUBLIC CORRUPTION DRAGNET: GOOD COP - BAD COP


GOOD COP - BAD COP
So, I'm catching heat from my cop friends because this catch-a-cop movement that I've started here in Arkansas has grown far larger than just myself over the past 10 years.
My approach to public corruption was more targeted and selective in my investigative reports. I'm not the only one in this thing today, so other approaches are now on the table and I DO have a voice in it but only one. This is now a collective and is managed as such.

All I can say is, you should have supported me more loudly & boldly when it WAS JUST ME. It was a window in time now long gone. Keep your head low and your nose clean, is my advice and I will remain as forthright and fair in this process as possible, is my promise
The dragnet is now cast. #EPluribusUnum

CONWAY ATTORNEY TRIES TO VIOLATE LAWS DEMANDING BLOGGER REVEAL HIS SOURCES AND NOTES

CONWAY ATTORNEY TRIES TO VIOLATE THE ARKANSAS CONSTITUTION AND STATE LAWS BY DEMANDING THAT BLOGGER THAT EXPOSED ILLEGAL ACTIVITY OF HIS CLIENT REVEAL HIS SOURCES AND NOTES

SHYSTER JAMES L. BARGER AND HIS CRAZY CLIENT APRIL MATHIS

Followers of this blog will remember our numerous posts about April Mathis, a former employee of then Faulkner County Prosecuting Attorney Cody Hiland (now U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas) who used her position to obtain sealed court records of a case involving the current wife of her ex-husband.

You can check out these posts to get all the details:


http://badgovernmentinarkansas.blogspot.com/2017/10/more-evidence-surfaces-about-employee.html



Last week the publisher of the blog received a subpoena duces tecum and was to appear for a deposition today.

Our publisher filed a motion to quash the subpoena and thus halted the illegal attempt of shyster Barger to get his notes and identify sources of his stories. 







Arkansas, as backward as it is, has a great shield law for journalists.



While highly unlikely, this case could impact the rights of the free press in the state of Arkansas.

One of the potential witnesses, if this matter proceeds to a hearing, might be David Sachar, the Executive Director of the Arkansas Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission, that cited this blog and recognized it as a state wide media source in a filing regarding the removal of Saline County Circuit Court Judge Bobby McCallister.


Another might be Max Brantley with the Arkansas Times,  who frequently cites the investigative reporting from this and Bad City of Little Rock blog.

Stay tuned for details about this and while you wait, we will give you an update in our continuing coverage of the domestic relations case concerning April Mathis.

A source provided a copy of some pleading in her case that will arouse some public interest:








It should be noted that April Mathis did not deny that she tried to kill herself. All she had to say is no, if she had not, and move on.

Again with the question about a Department of Human Services, Division of Children & Family Services suspected abuse/neglect investigation, she could have simply responded no, if no such investigation has occurred,  and moved on.

Another thing that creates public interest in April's case is the violation of the Arkansas Rules of Civil Procedure in not using full names, not the initial of the first name, in case filings.



Another point of interest is the two other attorneys involved in the case. Betty Hardy, the Plaintiff's lawyer and Charles Hoskyns, a sloppy, not-to-bright fucker, that makes a living as an ad litem.

Those two shysters will be discussed in stories on our  Bad Attorneys in Arkansas blog.

More to come...

WHITE-RUN BOARD BREAKS TRADITION TO AVOID APPOINTING A BLACK VICE MAYOR

WHITE-RUN BOARD BREAKS TRADITION TO AVOID APPOINTING A BLACK VICE MAYOR


The white majority Little Rock Board of Directors voted Tuesday night in an executive session to recycle Ward 7 director B.J. Wyrick to be Vice Mayor in order to keep Ken Richardson from getting the position. Wyrick was Vice Mayor from January 2000 until December 2001.

The board has a tradition that a member with tenure that has not held the position of Vice Mayor is usually the one to be selected. 

Neither Ken Richardson or Erma Hendrix have ever held that position. Both are black.

Capi Peck, who is white, is the newest member of the board has never held that position either.

This is a racist board, as Director Hendrix is fond of saying, and you can do some research and you will find that no proposed ordinance put forth by Hendrix or Richardson has ever gotten enough votes to pass. That is institutional racism and those old decrepit white directors, and Doris Wright (who most always votes with the whites) cannot offer any other explanation than institutional racism.

It's time to sign the petitions to recall these ancient assholes and get this city  on moving forward.

We will go into each board member with great detail and give you some information about them you won't find anywhere else.

Juicy stuff is on the way. Grab some popcorn and get ready.

LITTLE ROCK: MAYOR SCOTT ASKS LRPD FOR 24/7 SECURITY DETAIL AFTER DEATH THREATS

LITTLE ROCK: MAYOR SCOTT ASKS LRPD FOR 24/7 SECURITY DETAIL AFTER RECEIVING DEATH THREATS

MAYOR SCOTT WANTS A 24/7 SECURITY DETAIL PROVIDED FOR HIM AT WORK & HOME
We received a tip that Mayor Scott asked City Manager Bruce Moore to have LRPD provide a 24/7 security detail for protection after receiving death and other threats.

MAYOR SCOTT & CITY MANAGER BRUCE MOORE AT SCOTT'S FIRST BOARD MEETING AS MAYOR

A spokesman for Mayor Scott confirmed that in an off-air telephone conversation during the Black Focus show on the JoyNetRadio.com today (it will be a topic of discussion on the show tomorrow from 12 - 2pm).

The spokesman stated that Scott's stand on the no-knock raids, wanting to establish a citizens review committee and other issues (especially the LRFOP) had made him a target. 

We also learned that Mayor Scott took over the office suite that the City Manager was in due to concerns about "too much" accessibility in the office that the previous mayors occupied.

Stay tuned for more information as this is a breaking story.

SUSPENDED: LRSD FOURTH GRADE TEACHER REFERS TO HER STUDENTS AS MONKEYS - ONLY 10 WHITE STUDENTS ENROLLED AT THE SCHOOL


Melanie Watson, a fourth grade teacher at Little Rock school district Watson Elementary school took to Facebook to reveal her true feeling about the students at her school returning after a holiday break.

Watson Elementary only has 10 white students enrolled according to information we obtained earlier in the school year from LRSD.


Racist and bigots have long referred to blacks as monkeys. Click here for examples.

Upset parents protested at the school this morning and were questioned on how long they would be holding up signs in front of the school by the principal.



The teacher has deleted her Facebook page and we cannot review it to see if she made other similar racist posts.

We have requested information from the school district and will post an update when the information is made available.



***Update- 01/04/19 12:00 pm***

LRSD reports that they have suspended the teacher that made the racist post.

LAST TERM MAYOR STODOLA CAUGHT IN ANOTHER LIE - BOARD WILL VOTE TONIGHT TO BUMP UP HIS RETIREMENT BENEFITS

Wednesday, December 11, 2018


LAST TERM MAYOR STODOLA CAUGHT IN ANOTHER LIE - BOARD WILL VOTE TONIGHT TO BUMP UP HIS RETIREMENT BENEFITS

CORRUPTION SUCKS

According the the city HR director, last term mayor Stodola is not entitled to the benefits he seeks. 
And she provides the smoking gun proving he lied about not asking for this.




We posted back on November 9th that last term mayor Mark Stodola was seeking a bump in salary during his last weeks in office to reap higher retirement benefits.

You can read that post by clicking here.

Thanks to the Arkansas Times and Max Brantley's Arkansas blog, we learned late yesterday that a proposed ordinance is to be voted on at tonight's reconvened board meeting that would do just what we said and more.  

In addition to the salary bump during Stodola's last weeks in office, if he kicks the bucket before his ailing wife, she will get widows benefits.




We have sent a request for records about the proposed ordinance and which board members have proposed it.

You do not want to miss watching the live stream of the reconvened board meeting on the city's YouTube channel tonight.  It should prove painful for last term mayor Stodola.

By the way, chicken-shit last term mayor Stodola never followed up on that email request for all the times our publisher has been wrong.  



Maybe he should use that city paid health insurance and get a testosterone booster to help his vanishing balls issue.

***UPDATE 12/11/18 10:23AM***

Human Resources Director Stacey Witherell has provided the smoking gun that proves last term mayor Mark Stolda is a lying piece of shit and needs to be run out of town on a rail after the public tars and feathers him.

DIRTY LITTLE ROCK DEA AGENT BUSTED FOR ACCEPTING BRIBES

DIRTY LITTLE ROCK DEA AGENT BUSTED FOR ACCEPTING BRIBES

DIRTY DEA AGENT NATHAN KOEN

Drug Enforcement Agent Nathan Koen was arrested on December 4, 2018 and charged with federal bribery and drug conspiracy charges following allegations that he accepted payment from a drug dealer in exchange for information.

U.S. Attorney Cody Hiland said Nathan Koen was arrested Tuesday on a federal complaint that alleged he accepted bribes and helped a drug dealer’s criminal activities for two years. Koen was detained following an appearance before a U.S. magistrate judge.



Apparently he did not stow away any of that bribery cash for a rainy day or an emergency like obtaining an attorney if he got caught.



Koen had worked at the DEA’s Little Rock office since September 2016. 

If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison for the bribery count and up to life in prison for the conspiracy count.

Oddly, there is no mention of this major arrest on the website of the U.S. Attorney's office for the Eastern District of Arkansas.





Hiland is a fine one to be in his position too, as he played fast and loose with federal funds when he was Prosecuting Attorney for the 20th Judicial District and his appointment as U.S. Attorney quashed an investigation by the DOJ and FBI.

http://badgovernmentinarkansas.blogspot.com/2016/10/records-indicate-20th-judicial-district.html

Our first post on this blog was about Hiland and his refusal to provide responses to FOI requests.

LITTLE ROCK MAYOR'S RUN-OFF RACE OFFERS LITTLE CHOICE AND SHOWS NO POTENTIAL FOR CHANGE

BAD CITY OF LITTLE ROCK

LITTLE ROCK MAYOR'S RUN-OFF RACE OFFERS LITTLE CHOICE AND SHOWS NO POTENTIAL FOR CHANGE

KURRUS & SCOTT -  TWO TURDS IN A BUCKET

The two shill candidates in the mayor's race run-off are trying to convince voters of why they should be elected.

We are going to give you some reasons why you should stay home and not waste your time voting for either of them as a protest against bad government.

In spite of what both candidates have said, the city is run by the City Manager and the Board of Directors.  It will take a vote of the people to change that.

The mayor can make proclamations, break tie votes and cut ribbons at openings, but real power lies with the city manager who has control of city funds and the ability to hire and fire employees, with the consent of the board which can fire the city manager.

Baker Kurrus is supported by the Little Rock Fraternal Order of Police, a group headed by a piece of shit that has no business wearing a badge. 


JOHN "SMACKMYBITCHUP" GILCHRIST - LRFOP PRESIDENT

The LRFOP president has a documented history of domestic violence and was once fired from LRPD in part for untruthfulness. 





Gilchrest got his job back via the stacked Civil Service Commission.

Glichrist donated $500.00 to Kurrus.



Gilchrist used his position with LRFOP to try and smear Frank Scott, Jr.. Baker did little to protest until after the damage was done.




CNN ran a story about the Willie Horton-styled attempt to smear Scott.




Fine folks backing Kurrus and remember most all LRPD officers and FOP members don't even reside or vote in Little Rock.



They support him because he thinks LRPD can investigate itself and a citizens review committee is not needed.



Kurrus sees no problems with at large members, in spite of a scholarly study by Hendrix College that points out that at-large positions put white males in office as opposed to ward elections that put females and minorities in office. You can read that study by clicking here.

Kurrus came into the race after Stodola dropped out. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that he got in as Stodola's replacement at the urging of business leaders and the Chamber of Commerce.

Kurrus took campaign contributions from the Chamber of Commerce fronted political action committee.  The CoC gets $300k from the city with no stings attached as to how it is spent and there is no accounting of how the funds are used.  




Kurrus also accepted funds from the Arkansas Realtors PAC , a group that fights against laws for tenant rights. 




That's not a surprise as Kurrus is an owner of a property company and has more in common with shitty landlords than the tenants that fall prey to them.

Kurrus also accepted illegal campaign contributions from two business entities a violation of Arkansas laws. This was documented on a Campaign Contribution and Expenditure report he filed on October 30th.


 
KURRUS SIGNED HIS CCE HIMSELF


Kurrus is an attorney and officer of the court and should know better.  His CCE lists that he has no campaign treasurer to blame. 


Kurrus filed an amended CCE on  November 1st, but the violation still stands as the fund were accepted in the first place.

We have filed a complaint with the Arkansas Ethics Commission concerning Kurrus' acceptance of the illegal funds.

We filed one earlier in the year against a judicial candidate for the same thing, the funds in that case were also returned but the Ethics Commission found he violated the law and imposes sanctions. You can read about that case by clicking here.

Kurrus touts his experience on the Little Rock School Board, the one that was in charge of the district when it failed and went under state control.

He touts that he is a leader because he was appointed by Johnny Key, the unqualified head of the Arkansas Department of Education. Key could only obtain that position after the law was changed to permit his unqualified ass to hold it.

Guess what?  The same thing had to be done for lawyer Kurrus. He was not qualified to hold the position of a school district superintendent and a waiver was made by the unqualified Director of the Department of Education. 

Reverend Frank Scott, Jr. is just as bad a Kurrus, maybe worse.

Lets start off with a bang.

Scott has a secret that he does not want anyone to know about and he had the records from his criminal case sealed to keep folks from knowing about his dirty secret. 

We had a tip that Scott was pulled over by the Arkansas State Police for a possible driving while intoxicated offense. A video of the traffic stop allegedly shows Scott acting in a belligerent manner dropping the race and and then the commission card (He was a Highway Commissioner at the time according to our source).

So we fired off a Freedom of information request to the Arkansas State Police:

 We got a rapid fire response back:


What the State Police said speaks volumes - records responsive to our request are EXEMPT. Exempt under a section of the Arkansas Code, the CRIMINAL CODE more specifically.


We cannot say for certain what the criminal charges were against Scott and the disposition of the case.

Rev. Scott isn't saying either. He refused to respond to a request for a comment or explanation.

Rev. Scott also took that dirty money for the Arkansas Realtors PAC.  He justified his taking the dirty money from a group that fights  against tenant rights by saying he could take campaign funds from folks he didn't agree with - no problems there.

We will remind Rev. Scott of this verse:



Rev. Scott also used campaign funds to pay for a lot of airline tickets.



Wonder if he used that expensive piece of luggage he got from fellow highway commissioners when he was booted off?

It's unfortunate that we have poor choices for our next mayor.

Boycott the ballot and don't vote for either of these shills.

AT-LARGE DIRECTOR KUMPURIS REVEALS HIS SENILITY IN REMARKS ABOUT A NEWPAPER ARTICLE AT THE LAST AGENDA MEETING



CITIZENS WONDER ABOUT THE AGED DIRECTOR'S MENTAL FACULTIES


At the November 13th  agenda meeting, at-large director Kumpuris bitched and moaned about an article that appeared in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on November 11, 2018.

  
Kumpuris incorrectly stated that the article was about a rise in drive-by shooting in 2018, when in fact as you can see by the attached copy of the article it clearly stated that it was about 2017.
