Re: “Little Rock police review board: It must have teeth

https://www.urban.org/urban-wire/are-civil…

Experts say that investigation-focused agencies are typically more successful at holding police forces accountable for wrongdoing or misbehavior because they focus on individual complaints. For any oversight agency to succeed, however, three factors are necessary:

Independence. A civilian oversight agency should be independent from the police department so that recommendations can be trusted.

Resources. Investigating complaints and issuing reports can be time consuming and expensive. A successful civilian oversight agency needs adequate funding to function.

Power. Civilian oversight agencies need some teeth so that law enforcement cant simply ignore recommendations from reports or investigations.
Independence is particularly important because civilian oversight agencies aim to improve the operations of police departments and correct mistakes. Without independence, its impossible to form nonbiased recommendations and implement reforms.

Re: “Little Rock giving Lime scooters the boot when trial period ends. But mayor later says he'll ask for new proposals.

Max, for accuracy's sake, please change the verbiage of 'call for proposals.' The mayor and his spokesman both said RFQ, a request for quotes/quotations, which has different implications. It may just be a quirk of his business banking background, but we won't know that if the media doesn't question it.

Re: “Scooter complaints engage the Little Rock mayor

The city has big issues, but our inability to modernize our infrastructure and laws around it is definitely among them. Like the rental scooters or not, the issues they are bringing are issues Little Rock will need to deal with if it ever really wants to join the 21st century. You're never going to stop the push for urban freeways from the DOT if you can't deal with your non-car transit internally. IMHO.

Re: “The attack on teachers started in 2017. Joyce Elliott tried to slow the train. Warwick Sabin voted against her.

This doesn't change the substance of the critique, but for the sake of accuracy, I wouldn't call the Democratic 'yea' votes rare. From a quick count, it's a 9-15 split, which is a clear majority but that's still roughly 40% of the house democratic caucus voting yea
