Operations suspended at 2 prison units in Arkansas; officers, inmates to be relocated March 2, 2018 at 8:22 p.m.

Oh great... with no real free bed space in the corrections system, we close two units? Great.

Maybe look at just WHY they can’t keep the prison system staffed might be a good idea?

Arkansas execution drug set to expire while appeals proceed February 28, 2018 at 4:45 p.m.

There is no logical or moral reason for it to take so long to exhaust the appeals process. Justice delayed = justice denied.

There is no question as to the guilt of those on death row in these cases. That isn’t even being argued. Instead, the argument is against the death penalty in general.

They should have considered this possible outcome when they chose to commit their horrific crimes.

Upon conviction, I volunteer to help build a gallows in front of the courthouse to hang this monster by the neck for his evil crimes!

VIDEO: North Little Rock police release footage showing fatal shooting of teen by officers January 11, 2018 at 12:47 p.m.

FrFredBall: Your comment is, indeed, a reflection of the problem - accountability. We want to point fingers at the police, point fingers at "society", point fingers at circumstances. Sometimes (most of the time) people make seriously bad decisions. This young man's friends cooperated, even willingly submitting to search/pat down (where drugs were found on one). Yet they remained calm and cooperative. In fact - the conversation between officers and the other two was jovial and pretty much polite. It was the driver who CHOSE - not because of a society "forcing him" or "oppressing him" - but his own corrupt heart that led him to attempt to kill police officers over a stolen gun and some drugs. He showed ZERO care for anyones lives.

Does the culture contribute - certainly, but it is the "we are victims" culture. This young man had access to education and resources that previous generations didn't have. He chose a different path and paid for his horrendous decision with his life.

VIDEO: North Little Rock police release footage showing fatal shooting of teen by officers January 11, 2018 at 12:36 p.m.

I really hate that it came to the death of this young man. What is really sad - he didn't have to die. But his decision to struggle and attempt to shoot officers was a fatal one. He committed suicide by police - all over what appears to maybe have been a small quantity of drugs.

Arkansas governor calls for $172M increase in state spending, asks universities not to increase tuition January 9, 2018 at 5:05 p.m.

At the same time, he has directed his cronies in the tax committee to find taxes to raise to provide the cash for his proposed spending increases.

ASA is more of a tax-and-spend leader than his Liberal predecessor... sad.

2 children beaten by group at North Little Rock park, police say; 1 attacker appeared to be armed January 9, 2018 at 4:38 p.m.

And the “system” is impotent to do anything.

First- little effort will be “available” to investigate or pursue this (as was evidenced by the previous episode where the same kids were victimized).

Second- if the police accidentally do find the perpetrators and actually make arrests, because they are minors/juveniles, they will recently be a slap in the wrist.

The most “hopeful” solution is some residents get fed up and beat the living crap out of these punks.

But again- then the thugs become the “victims”... sigh.

So... a meth head kills someone while under the influence... and they get probation and $2500

Yes, apparently human life is cheap.

Arkansan convicted in couple's 1997 slayings released on parole December 13, 2017 at 5:42 p.m.

Found guilty of TWO counts of CAPITAL MURDER... yet paroled? Could have stopped right there and there would have been plenty of grounds for outrage. What’s the point of a capital murder? Double. Double.

PLUS - attempted to murder their son (two counts).

Probable cause for DNA OVERTURNS his conviction so he’s charged and convicted again, butnif lesser charges? HE MURDERD THEM!!!!

FULL OFFER LETTER: Arkansas hires Houston's Yurachek to 5-year deal as AD December 4, 2017 at 10:22 p.m.

What has he done at Houston that merits nearly doubling his salary plus paying a $350k boyout to Houston?

He may be a fine guy—- but considering he apparently bounces jobs/universities like a ping pong ball... what was the attraction to him for the U of A?
