BOYCE HAMLET'S FUND RAISING EFFORTS FOR LEGAL DEFENSE NOT GOING WELL


Tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet's efforts to raise cash to help defend himself in an illegal exaction lawsuit that seeks to oust him from the position that he lacks experience and qualification to hold and to recover all the funds paid to him as salary for the position that he is unqualified to hold has not raised a dime.

Sources inside the ABC tell us that Hamlet is frequently absent from the office (trying to avoid a process server?) and appears to be red-eyed and depressed.  If we had lied and filed false documents about our employment history to cover up our hiring and firing from the Arkansas State Police in order to gain employment that we would otherwise not be able to obtain by telling the truth, we would be depressed too.

ABC BUSTS VISIONS CABARET - FINDS ROOMS THAT HAVE BEEN USED FOR YEARS AND THAT THE PREVIOUS ABC ADMINISTRATION KNEW ABOUT BUT DID NOTHING



ABC Administration Direct Bud Roberts recently personally conducted an investigation into allegations of violations of ABC rules and policy at Visions Cabaret.  Roberts found evidence of prostitution, indecent sexual conduct and 98 other problems.

THE TEMPERATURE WAS 80 DEGREES, SO WHY IS BUD WEARING A TRENCH COAT???


Watch FOX 13's news report of ABC Administration Director Bud Roberts personally investigating the strip club.

DID ROBERTS CHECK OUT THE PRIVATE ROOMS?  WAS HIS VISIT CAPTURED ON THE CLUB'S CAMERAS?


Our investigation has determined that the ABC had knowledge of the private rooms at Visions Cabaret and the current ABC Administration is having a showdown with the Enforcement side and it is evidence of the conflict between the ABC Administration section headed by Roberts and the ABC Enforcement section led by tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet (for now anyways).

An ABC Violation report from August 2008 clearly makes reference to Visions Cabaret having private rooms for the activity commonly known to strip club patrons and the world in general as lapdances.
 




 Another ABC Violation Report from June 2013 also referenced lapdances.


 



Followers of this blog will remember that former ABC Administration Director Mike Langley enjoyed a  little strange every now and then and perhaps he visited the club and did not have issues with the private rooms for private "dances".


Perhaps former ABC Enforcement Agent Jerrell Smith had an arrangement with this establishment like he did with the strip club owned by Billy Marfoglio who gave him a Taser as a "gift".

Whatever happened in the prior ABC Administration, we feel certain that Roberts is trying to do the right thing and deal fairly with permit holders and violations and the fair and consistent application of the ABC rules/policy.

Anyway, enjoy a lapdance on us!




************

Speaking of former ABC Enforcement Agent Jerrell Smith, an appeal of the Arkansas Ethics Commission's decision concerning his being given a Taser by Billy Marfoglio has been filed and the matter will be heard by Judge Wendell Griffin.

ABC ENFORCEMENT DIRECTOR SEEKING FUNDS FOR DEFENSE FUND - WE FOUND HIM SOME CASH

Word is that tainted ABC Enforcement Director is trying to raise cash to pay for an attorney to defend him against an illegal exaction lawsuit that seeks to oust him from his job and recover funds illegally paid to him for a job for which he has extremely little or no qualifications at all to hold (plus he has lied about his employment history to state agencies here in Arkansas and in Mississippi to cover up his hiring and firing by the Arkansas State Police).

GOFUNDME PAGE FOR THE BOYCE HAMLET DEFENSE FUND 


We have found some cash for you Boyce, in fact it's some money your wifey apparently forgot about.



We stumbled upon this because an email that we copied Boyce on was bounced back.  We thought he might have been canned last week.



So we looked him up on the Arkansas Government web page to see of he had been removed.  Alas, he had not but we noticed that his wifey's name was also on there.


So we clicked on her name to see what was up and low and behold we found she had some cash escheated away at the state auditor's office (see first photo).

We are certain that the Hamlet's are very thankful that we were able to make them aware of the funds.

HUMP DAY HUMOR

Boyce Crying: 10 Ways For Him to Justify His Leaky Eyeholes


  
1. Is Somebody Chopping Onions in Here?
Probably the most famous euphemism for crying, the onion-chopping defense is handy because we all know that if Boyce is chopping onions, you should avert your eyes from his tears, out of respect.

 



2. It’s Raining On My Face
The facial precipitation defense originates with one of the most important musical testimonies to Boyce-like man crying in history: Flight of the Conchords' "I'm Not Crying".

video


3. My Eyes Are Just a Little Sweaty Today
More greatness from Flight of the Conchords. This excuse comes in particularly handy if Boyce is listening to a sad episode of This American Life while working out at the gym.


 
4. What Is This Salty Discharge?
Sure, Jerry broke up with a girl every week on Seinfeld, but this one must have really mattered…

video


5. I’m Just Remembering the Ending of ‘Field of DreamsGo ahead and substitute any of the acceptable Boyce-will-cry movies here: Rudy, Brian’s Song, Rocky, or even Armageddon (though that’s up for debate). Just don’t mention Love, Actually.

video


6. Damned Leaky Tear Duct!
According to Boyce, 99.8% of men are born with Leaky Tear Duct Syndrome? It’s a medical fact.
 

 
7. This? This is Just Testosterone Run-Off
For Boyce, tears can be a source of excreting excess build-up of his manliest hormone. Because, you know… science.





video

 
8. Naw, Man, It’s Just My AllergiesStock up on Zyrtec, Boyce say's Emotionitis is going around!
 


  

 
9. My Eyes Are Cleaning Themselves So I Can See The Truth
This is one of those intimidating responses that is best used by Boyce during moving political speeches or upon realizing that his pet hamster probably didn’t actually go live on Uncle Henry's dairy farm.



10. I’m Just Really, Really High

Sure, you can only legally use this one in Washington and Colorado, but it may come in handy next time someone shares one of those “soldier returning from war” videos in your Facebook timeline.
This excuse is made even more convincing if you keep a copy of Pineapple Express lying around.

10. I’m Just Really, Really High
Boyce can only legally use this one if he makes a road trip to Washington or Colorado, but it may come in handy next time someone shares one of those “soldier returning from war” videos on his Facebook timeline.

ABC ENFORCEMENT DIRECTOR TRYS TO SPIN HIS DEALINGS WITH ETHICS COMMISSION


Tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet is the subject of an Ethic Complaint because he flat out failed to file a legally required form withing 30 days of being appointed to head the ABC Enforcement Division.

Notice how Boyce lies about it being a technical issue.  What a piece of shit liar he is. But you all knew that didn't you.

There is nothing technical about failing to follow the law, unless Boyce played the "retarded card" again.

Hamlet has proven problems with credibility and honesty and needs to be removed as Enforcement Director to prevent further embarrassment to the ABC and DFA and help these agencies maintain credibility and the respect of the public.

ABC COOPERATING MINOR IN 2008 USED POSITION TO TRY AND EXTORT GOODS & SERVICES FROM MAUMELLE RESTURANTS - WAS FOUND GUILTY OF CRIMINAL VIOLATION

The ABC's controversial and illegal use of minors to try and purchase alcoholic beverages landed on of their illegal operatives, Scott Butler,  in hot water back in the summer of 2008.

Butler was 19 years old at the time and had attended Mills High School when the ABC hired him to break the law and try and purchase alcoholic beverages.

Butler then tried to use his position as an ABC undercover minor to strike a deal with some restaurants in Maumelle.  Butler told these folks if they would give him stuff, he would not "bust" them if they sold him booze in the ABC's entrapment activities at their restaurants.
  
The restaurant owners complained to the Maumelle Police Department and charges were filed against Butler.

Butler was charged under Arkansas Code Annotated  §5-52-106 Soliciting unlawful compensation.


In August 2008, Butler was found guilty in District Court in Maumelle and fined $625.00.

Apparently Butler had some issues as he was selected to participate in the Arkansas National Guard Youth Challenge Program.  The program is for troubled youth.



ARK. NATIONAL GUARD YOUTH CHALLENGE

According to newspaper articles about the incident, the ABC did not have correct information about Butler and could not provide the Maumelle Police Department with very much information about Butler. 

Not much has changed at the ABC, its still a place for out to pasture, tainted law enforcement officers that couldn't get a job anywhere else. 




SCOTT BUTLER - FORMER ABC UNDERCOVER MINOR
 
 
The use of cooperating minors by the ABC to purchase alcoholic beverage violates Arkansas Code Annotated   § 3-3-203, Purchase or possession by minor, which in part states:

"(a) (1) It is unlawful for any person under twenty-one (21) years of age to purchase or have in his or her possession any intoxicating liquor, wine, or beer."

There is no exception to the statue for law enforcement purposes. It might also be argued that parents and/or ABC enforcement agents are violating Arkansas Maltreatment Laws, specifically neglect, by placing these children in potentially dangerous situations and encouraging them and even paying them to break a state law.

A Standford Law Review article says that breaking the law to catch lawbreakers is authorized criminality:

"This practice of authorized criminality is secret, unaccountable, and in conflict with some of the basic premises of democratic policing. And to the extent that authorized criminality presents mixed messages about their moral standing, it undermines social support for the police. While the practice isn’t new, authorized criminality raises fundamental questions about the limits of acceptable police conduct and has been too long ignored…"



The primary rule of statutory construction is to give effect to the intent of the legislature. Snowden v. JRE Invs., Inc., 2010 Ark. 276, 370 S.W. 3d 215. We must construe the statue jest as it reads, giving the words their ordinary and usually accepted meaning in common language. Id.  When the language of a statue is plain and unambiguous and conveys a clear and definite meaning, there is no need to resort to rules of statutory interpretation. Id.  Evans v. Hamby, 2011 Ark. 69, 378 S.W. 3rd 723.

What these means for us non-lawyers, is that Arkansas Code Annotated   § 3-3-203 states that it is illegal for a person under 21 to purchase, try to purchase to possess liquor, wine or beer.  And ABC Enforcement Agents are a party to illegal activity when they use minors to try and entrap permit holders to sell these under age law breakers booze.

It is only a matter of time before a smart permit holder fights back and challenges the ABC's illegal use of undercover minors.

REGARDING THE ABC ENFORCEMENT DIRECTOR'S FAILURE TO FILE REQUIRED FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE FORM - IS A CONSENT JUDGMENT BEING OFFERED?

The Arkansas Ethics Commission was presented with general information by Commission attorney Drew Blankenship this morning regarding the complaint we made earlier this year.

In the complaint, we alleged that tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet violated Arkansas Code Annotated § 21-8-701 (c)(1)(A) by failing to file the required Statement of Financial Interest within thirty days of his appointment as director of Alcohol Beverage Control Enforcement on March 24, 2015.

At the time that the regrettable and unfortunate decision was made by Governor Asa Hutchinson to have DFA Director Larry Walther appoint Hamlet, ole Boyce had unpaid state income taxes from when he was a parole officer that had resulted in DFA filing a Certificate of Indebtedness (a lien) against him.

Failure to pay taxes when due under Arkansas Code § 26-18-202 results in the individual being guilty of a Class D felony.

The publisher of this blog received a telephone call at 8:00 a.m., from Drew Blankenship with the Ethics Commission.  Blankenship advised him that the meeting at 9:00 a.m. was not the Probable Cause Hearing but rather a quick two minute oral presentation to the Ethics Commission in which they would either instruct him to further investigate the matter or based on the completeness of the publisher's own investigation and evidence included in his complaint, decide to offer Hamlet a Consent Judgment.

Blankenship advised that since it was clear that Hamlet failed to follow the law and submit the form, the most likely outcome would be that the Commission would simply offer a consent judgment based on the facts.

Blankenship further advised that the publisher was welcome to attend the public portion of the meeting and that Hamlet could address the Commission but the time to do so would be very limited.

Word is that a teary-eyed Hamlet pleaded ignorance and complained that he was being targeted.

HAMLET OFTEN WEEPS WHEN FACED WITH PROBLEMATIC ISSUES

Legal issues concerning Hamlet keep popping up.  In fact in just a few days a lawsuit is being filed against the Department of Finance and Administration and Hamlet that will be so problematic for DFA and Hamlet, Hamlet will probably call in sick and stay home and weep for days. If the lawsuit is successful, Hamlet will most likely have to pay back all funds he received as wages from the ABC and will probably be fired.

Let's hope he has a case of Kleenex and some Visine.

Stay tuned.

ABC ENFORCEMENT DIRECTOR IS CALLED AS A WITNESS IN A FOIA LAWSUIT - ENDS UP CRYING ON THE STAND

Tainted ABC Enforcement Director was subpoenaed in lawsuit, that had languished on for four years, involving a Freedom of Information request to the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality ("ADEQ") by the publisher of this blog. 

The attorney in that case wanted to use Hamlet to show how FOIA requests made by the publisher were an invasion of privacy.

Who in their right mind would use Hamlet and a witness?

This fool would...

WILLIAM G. ALMAND (BEFORE HE LET HIMSELF GO)

Back in 2008 Almand was going to run against Judge Collins Killgore...


Almand's chances of defeating Judge Kilgore were slim to none so he dropped out.

Back to the trial... On direct examination Hamlet stated that this blog portrayed him as a homosexual and had many posts of a sexual nature.  He cited this photo as proof.  
Blog post that contained this photo

Hamlet stated that this photo depicted him having sex with his boss Larry Walter.

Does Hamlet have a vivid imagination?  Is he projecting a hidden desire?  We believe that he is just plain stupid. And you can't fix stupid.

Hamlet also said that there were photos of him in underwear on the blog (Please provide a link to that photo Boyce).

We did have a post about him and depends.  Remember he is stupid.




Blog post that contained this photo.

Maybe Hamlet has a fetish about bowel movements or has sexual ideations about bowel movementsWe fall back on "you can't fix stupid".




Next Hamlet said that the blog depicted him as a retard and cited this photo as proof. 



 Blog post that contained this photo

All we can say is what the good book says... "Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free."

Readers and followers of this blog will recall that Hamlet told State Police investigators that he had a mental disorder and got a scholarship to college because of it.  Hamlet also told them he flunked college algebra twice and he had to petition the college to waive the requirement that he pass that class to receive a degree.

Hamlet also claimed we obtained a copy of his actual drivers license and photo-shopped it (on cross examination we asked Hamlet how we would have obtained a photo of his license. He said a FOIA request. This actually made us laugh out loud in courtDrivers License information or a photo of it is not releasable under the Arkansas FOI Act.  Hamlet must be stupid, because he and Bud Roberts both attended a seminar by the Arkansas Attorney General regarding the FOI act).

For the record, this Dumbass License is a 100% creation by us. It's not a doctored photo of his actual license.  Hamlet is a real dumbass and does not have to have a license to prove it.  Ask the folks that work for him.  We hear a lot of stories.  



 Blog post that contained this photo

Hamlet said he was frightened and afraid when a picture was posted with him in cross hairs. 

 
 Poor Boyce, ignorance is bliss isn't it?


 When this photo was introduced Hamlet proceeded to weep and cry.


 Blog post that contained this photo

Perhaps the reality of the consequences his lying and character flaws will make him a failed individual sunk in.  One thing is certain, Hamlet cries when faced with problems.  He cried when being investigated by the Arkansas State Police when he was caught cheating on an exam and them lying multiple times to state police investigators (see the mention of crying here).

On cross examination we asked Hamlet if his credibility and honesty had ever been called into question.  He said yes and told about his little cheating and lying episode with the state police. 

When we were questioning him about his employment (we could beause it was covered in direct examination) we asked Hamlet about some discrepancies (lies actually) about actual employment dates at certain agencies, Hamlet responded by saying the agencies had provide false information.

Unfortunately we did not get to rip him a new one because after the Plaintiff rested their case we made a motion for a Directed Verdict. The judge granted our motion, and we had no need to put on a defense or argue our case.  Score another victory for seeker's of truth and open records! BTW- when Hamlet was released by the court he strutted out like a pimp (might have picked up that walk at UAPB) and winked at one of the Plaintiff's like he had done them big favor. Remember you can't fix stupid.

 
We will see Hamlet this Friday at a hearing before the Arkansas Ethics Commission to deal with our complaint that Hamlet violated Arkansas laws.

Stay tuned. 

"MY MOMMA SAID LIFE IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES, AND I AM LIKE THE PIECE THAT NO ONE WANTS"

************ 

*UPDATE*

We have received several emails asking what a directed verdict is. A directed verdict is only used when the evidence for either the plaintiff or defendant in a case is so weak that the law cannot possibly support a finding in favor of that party.  In these cases, the directed verdict is entered in favor of the other party

Directed verdicts are not often granted, no matter whether they originate with the parties or the judge.  This is because a directed verdict is only appropriate when the evidence weighs so heavily in favor of one party, and so lightly in favor of the other, that no reasonable jury could find in favor of the party that has no evidence to support its case.  However, most parties in both civil and criminal cases can at least find a bit of evidence that creates a question as to what actually happened, which means that a reasonable jury could possibly find for either side and therefore must be given the chance to consider the case, unless there is a motion made for a directed verdict and the judge grants it.

The publisher of this blog has received directed verdicts, in his favor,  in two recent cases filed against him.
