When is Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner going to address the ongoing epidemic of violent crime committed by young black males? Are these attackers from all over or just certain neighborhoods? Are they dropouts from certain schools? What's going to be different going forward? Where's the increase in ethics and skills going to come from besides prison? What other opportunities to succeed other than crime?

I've met Cheif Buckner at a couple of Coffee with Cops events. I highly recommend you attend one and talk to these people in person. I think He's really trying, but I feel the city "leaders" are holding him back, and the judges don't have his back. He's got a thankless job made worse by the circumstances.
I for one, don't care if he hires Black, Hispanic, or White recruites, from Little Rock or living out of town, just fix the hiring procedure & criteria and get some more! Get this town's crime wave under control!!!!

Since his hire the homicide and violent crime rate in Little Rock has escalated to the point no neighborhood is immune. How nice to know this feckless police chief will allow the federal government to enforce its laws...he needs to go.

Hey LR1955 - Chief Buckner wasted finite resources early on making sure "social justice" was achieved with police interactions with transsexuals. Instead of working to address real crime, the good chief was more interested in making sure a man dressed like a woman is frisked and driven to jail by a female cop. LR doesn't need a social justice warrior as police chief; LR needs another Tommy Robinson.

Yeah re3ad about TR. What a bully and a$$ whole. Judge Mixon put him in his place the loud mouth lunitic, but he still has his heroes just like Putin after his evil deeds [ some say he has one high up in USA politics]

Hopefully we will spend all of our time with busting prostitutes, and making sure a all white police force will bring a certain aspect to the force. What a shame sea bass disrespects all the officers of all races, creeds and gender who help protect us.

All hail his highness of Hate!

It is all so easy. Surely just one factor is in affect, incarcerating more in the most incarcerated artificial boundary land mass in the world.
