Re: “Chief Humphrey says citizens advisory committee in the works; encourages nonviolent protests

Buckner 2.0 has no business being involved in setting up a citizens review committee. Why involve the DOJ in this at all? This is a matter for our board of directors.

Re: “Mayor plans Little Rock budget talk

Scott might need all that extra money to rebuild the city after the cop that murdered Bradley Blackshire is not charged. Good thing LRPD already has the $400k in riot gear.

Re: “Committee approves amended version of Little Rock mayor-council proposal UPDATE

Another FOI stall tactic the city uses is requesting fake clarification of a specific record request. Anyone want to sign the recall petition?

Re: “After concerns raised, Scott says city has not cut funding to summer youth programs

The point of that sentence is not odd at all. An elected board of directors approved the 2019 budget in December of 2018 (just like they do each year) and that is the same board that is in charge now. Scott will not be able to get the board that approved the budget a few months ago to go back and redo the work they have already done. If Scott makes it to December of this year, he can have some input to the budget for 2020. #RecallThemAll

Re: “After concerns raised, Scott says city has not cut funding to summer youth programs

Sounds like there is a breakdown in that autocratic information control policy Scott put into play. And the city budget was approved by the same folks sitting on the board.

Re: “Hutchinson names Jake Bleed budget director

Hutchinson does this all the time. He appointed Boyce Hamlet to head ABC Enforcement, a "man" that was fired by the Arkansas state police for lying and then lied on every job application to hide his hiring and firing by the ASP to get jobs in law enforcement he would not have been able to had he told the truth. After a few months on the job, Hamlet got an $8k raise.

Bleed is an idiot.
