$30 million for what?

Posted By on Sun, Apr 16, 2006 at 5:36 AM

A statewide radio system that has cost $30 million so far is still fll of holes, Arkansas News Bureau reports. Only a relative handful of supervisors are tapped into the system full-time and many agencies can't access it. The failure of this system was evident in the recent fatal shooting of a disabled man by a state trooper. The trooper and deputy sheriffs were unable to communicate by radio.

Meanwhile, the Morning News reports that Trooper Larry Norman was not wiring a wireless microphone that troopers are supposed to wear during traffic stops when the shooting of the disabled man occurred.
