Re: “State Surgeon General Joe Thompson arrested

The Dr. Thompson incident is an embarrassment to the Little Rock police force and constitutes nothing short of a false and unlawful arrest. It also highlights the privileged and inappropriate relationship that exists between Stephens’ security detail and the LRPD. Just because you have money doesn’t mean that you and/or your employees should be extended special courtesies. Apparently that concept/conflict of interest doesn’t resonate with the LRPD.

Based on the available case evidence, Dr. Thompson was completely within his right to question the strange man outside his house at 10:30 PM pecking away at a computer in an unmarked SUV. Even if he was drinking in his home, doesn’t he have a civil obligation to inquire as to a stranger’s activities if he believes he might be up to something nefarious? In fact, God love him! And as for the disorderly conduct, there’s no evidence of plaint from his neighbors in the police report and wasn’t he in his house when they pulled up? The video footage from the police cruiser is especially revealing.

Any level-headed, independent DA that had the public’s interest in mind wouldn’t touch this case with a 10-foot pole and would probably have the officers involved reprimand for failing to use better judgment. Where’s the objectivity and balance? Jegley’s lost it!
