Re: “Shell station robbed; thief gets cash register

Little Rock has eroded into lawlessness. 
 
From the three-car-roll thought the red-light., speeders going un-ticketed, no license plates on cars and failure to site traffic tickets for anything that isn’t involved as a wreck are all contributors to the feeling that you can get away with anything in the Rock.  The lack of enforcement on the little things add up to big crimes happening because of the feeling that you can get away with more.
 
Leadership starts at the top.  The Board of Directors, Mayor and City Manager are responsible for each and every crime, because they do not demand from the Chief strict implementation of the laws.
 
No matter how many recruits you graduate nor how many officers you have on patrol matter, unless you enforce the law nothing will change.

Re: “Morning Notes: Stodola, Stovall, Hobbs

The bastered style government of a Weak Mayor (his only powers; are running the meetings, vetoes and voting at a tie – he can’t fire anyone without board approval) and a City Manager feeds the lack of responsibility and accountability that the taxpayers of Little Rock deserve.
 
At-Large City Directors need to also be done away with also.  They wield 30% of the board’s power and answer only to the money gods of LR.  Look at how one at-large city director micromanages staff and departments to fit her own personal whims.
 
Nothing will get done until the style of LR government changes so there is a direct line of power and accountability.

Re: “A case for the new Public Corruption Task Force?

Womack’s wife is not trying to pump up her hubby on FB, then he is turning a blind eye to a criminal act.
 
For Womack to be offer a bribe and not report it smacks of him wanting to have a relationship with the criminal.  He didn’t have to go the extra steps and wear a wire, but he should have reported it.
 
How did the criminal know to approach him?  Anything in the Womack’s past with this criminal might need to be looked into, maybe Womack couldn’t stand the spotlight on that relationship.  Maybe there was another who offer more.  Or maybe Womack wanted/need more to change his position. Or maybe, just maybe Womack was taking a position on something he truly believed in.
 
We’ll never know, because he failed to report it.  The big question is why he didn’t.

Re: “City Director Erma Hendrix unhappy about bike lanes

Ben Pope is on to something.
 
The root cause is that the leaders of Little Rock, elected or by wealth, act in capricious manners.  They believe what they want is good for everyone and damn anyone who doubts them.  Remember the “Metro-Mall”, the fight to put in, the cost, then lack of support for it and only to have it taken out a another obscene cost.
 
If the Mayor says “we need to deal with the homeless this way” or the City Manager says “we need to spend funds this way’, then any idea or thought that is not harmonious to their views are considered adversarial.
 
If a female At-Large City Director says “oh, we need to improve this” not only is any idea or thought that is not harmonious to her view is considered adversarial, but she will attempt to push the perceived transgressor.
 
The city promises to have public input and then fails to follow through engaging citizens in the process.  The city then issues it’s capricious decisions without any citizens input. 
 
This pits citizen against citizen, neighborhood against neighborhood all fight for the scraps that the leaders of Little Rock deem that they should or should not have.
 
Bike lanes on south Main Street or sidewalks in downtown neighborhoods is not the problem.  How the leaders of Little Rock have pit neighbor against neighbor, white against black, dividing our city once more.
 
River Market, SOMA, Tech Park, Mid-Town or Chenal; Little Rock will remain a second rate city until the citizens rise up and take control of the city destiny.
 
Erma is right to be outraged at the process, but I don’t agree on her fight against bike lanes.

Re: “Coalition wants formal disavowal of Tech Park use of neighborhood

Where is the all self serving Joan Adcock on this issue?  She should be fighting to add this to the agenda at tonight's board agenda meeting.  Failure for her to take the lead on this issue will point out how she really feels about the "little people" in neighborhoods.

She'll also throw off the mantel of  At-Large-Director and become the shill for businesses by supporting the city's waisting of bond money on Scott Hamilton.

Someone needs to look at Joan's re-election donations and they'll see she is paying the business community back.  20 years of her tricks as a board member and still  getting away with it!

Re: “Little Rock Technology Park gets push for University Avenue site

Can anyone tell us how many Little Rock Voters' signatures are required on a petition to Recall the Tech Park's portion of the city new Sales Tax increase?

Cut the funding off, this is a waste of our money!
