Little Rock's attorney continues to show his favoritism for those who continue to keep people down. Carpenter has been in the position way too long. He lacks compassion for the law and justice...

Carpenter has lost the city more money in poor litigation skills that he has made in salary. #CLEANOUTLRCITYHALL

This is the last judge anyone should rely on for an interpretation of a law,

1. The judge apparently doesn't have a first name. At least, it isn't present at all in the article - at the time of comment, of course.
2. Interesting that the city keeps green-lighting apartment complexes but is unable to inspect the already existing ones as required by the ordinance.
3. I like the solution to the inspector shortage - lets just change the ordinance and reduce the inspection requirements (an assumption based on inference).
4. Without delving into the actual statutes, I can't see why a city ordinance requiring minimum housing standards wouldn't apply to rental units. That kinda seems obvious.

The article just refers to "Gray," and it's up to the reader to figure out that she's the judge, which isn't hard. But still ....

Alice Gray, the Ark Dem should do an article on her and all the complaints filed against her that go nowhere.

This Judge needs to look at closing the Albert Pike at 701 Scott Street there in Little Rock, Arkansas. The building is roach and rat infected. People cooking meth and other drugs in the building. The Management company has been told a million times about tenants burning meth and setting fire alarms off all hours of the day and night. Plus they have failed HUD inspections more times then I can count. They get Fedarl Funds to offset the cost of rent and utities yet the budiling is falling apart. The City needs to step in and clsoe it or buy it. The security is worthless and is just 1 guard to check vistors in and check the whole 10 floors and outside of the building for trouble. One of the guards is very old and has bad health issues and should not even be working in this stressful job. The Albert Pike needs to be closed down and then thrown down. It is nothing but drug dealers selling point!
