Hurricane victim

Posted By on Thu, Jun 15, 2006 at 11:00 AM

Here's some good police work.

Arture Thompson of 7423 Marcia Lane was slain June 4. Detective Tommy Hudson believed that Thompson was shot with a weapon gone missing that Thompson had purchased in Little Rock. That weapon, traced by its serial number, turned up in possession of a man arrested in a recent sweep of a Houston housing project, Tilldon Jarard DeDe. Police say DeDe was a New Orleans evacuee who spent some time in Little Rock shortly after Katrina hit. Thompson was shot in a drug dispute, the first homicide here involving a hurricane evacuee, says the LRPD.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
