Group plans blast of Little Rock policing

Posted By on Thu, Nov 2, 2017 at 2:12 PM

A new group with some familiar faces, Citizens for Credibility and Trust in Little Rock Leadership, plans a news conference at 9;30 a.m. Friday outside City Hall to talk about unhappiness with city and police leadership.

Participants include Rev. Benny Johnson of Arkansas Stop the Violence and Russ Racop, a blogger who plans a race for City Board. Others are expected to attend.

The announcement doesn't say so explicitly but the group is expected to express continued dissatisfaction with Police Chief Kenton Buckner and City Manager Bruce Moore. I expect they'll endorse a change in those positions.

The group has compiled a document of particulars about their contention of ineffective action against crime, despite significant police expenditures. It cites some familiar criticisms, including blame being placed on the minority community for crime problems and the unwillingness of most Little Rock police officers to live in the city.

Here's a letter along with supporting documents sent to media today by the new ad hoc group.
