|HAMLET SIGNALS THE ASP IS #1 AS ONE OF HIS HENCHMEN CHUCKLES|
In emails stigmatized ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet sent to his staff, he made outlandish and unfounded claims that ABC Enforcement would be a better law enforcement agency than the Arkansas State Police.
So when Hamlet was appointed by his cronies one of the first things his did, other than get himself an $8,125.00 raise, was to order a badge (even though he holds no law enforcement certification which would permit him wear one or carry a weapon in his present position). Much to Hamlet's displeasure, the badge he had to order is exactly like the badge issued to the state police.
As previously mentioned, Hamlet sent out an email which he stated he wanted to change the badges used by ABC Enforcement "because the badge is the same as the Arkansas State Police" and the "we are the new ABC and I think a new badge would help us in our rebranding efforts". Hamlet would probably have to get the funds to purchase new badges from his old boss, Cody Hiland, just like he did when he purchased vests costing around $13,000.00 for his compliance agents.
Funny how it doesn't matter that the vests are exactly the same as the ones used by the state police, but he doesn't want their same stinking badge.
So Hamlet sent out images of four badges for his agents to choose from...
He received poor response from his agents in regard to the choices, in fact most of them wanted to keep the ones they had.
Good choice on the part of the agents. One of the badges that Hamlet designed cost $114.00. That would have set the ABC, or Cody Hiland, back around $2,166.00 for the badges alone. Cases and clip on holders would be another huge expense.
Did you happen to notice that Hamlet spelled enforcement incorrectly? Do you think if they had ordered that badge and it came misspelled like that they would have kept them? And by the way Hamlet, your agency is the Alcoholic Beverage Control Enforcement not Alcohol Beverage Control Enforcement. Excellent examples of Hamlet's buffoonery.
We understand that there is a petition calling for Governor Hutchinson to remove Hamlet from his position as director. We will check that out and report what we find at a later date.
