Saturday To-Do: Ben Dickey at White Water Tavern
04/20/2019 8:05am

In a world ruled by fairness, Ben Dickeys 2016 solo record Sexy Birds & Salt Water Classics and its 2019 follow-up A Glimmer on the Outskirts would be enough to make his a household name. It was, however, the fortuitous events of that three-year interim that would do the trick. The Little Rock native formerly of 90s-era local post-hardcore act Shake Ray Turbine found his name on the tongues of critics at Rolling Stone and Sundance last year after his friend Ethan Hawke cast him at the center of Blaze, a film depicting the life of Malvern native/songwriting legend Blaze Foley. What emerged was hailed as the best biopic of 2018 Dickeys film debut grappled with its subject unflinchingly, giving a wider audience not only awareness of Foleys catalogue and stunning biography, but an awareness of Dickeys own artistry. Even better, Bob Dylans longtime guitarist Charlie Sexton who played Townes Van Zandt in Blaze produced A Glimmer on the Outskirts, selecting its track list and its studio musicians. Its a mesmerizing collection of tracks, earnest and beatific, and worthy of getting lost in more than once, with vivid turns of phrase like the Great Rearranger drippin all his venom into our eyes. Dickey performs from it for this Saturday engagement at the White Water Tavern, where he debuted Sexy Birds in 2016, before he became an indie film darling.

Motion to expedite granted for Trump administration's appeal in Arkansas Medicaid work requirements case
04/19/2019 8:41pm

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit today granted the federal governments request for expedited consideration of its appeal of a recent ruling blocking Medicaid work requirements in Arkansas. U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg last month halted Governors Hutchinsons so-called work requirements program, which demanded that certain Medicaid beneficiaries fill out paperwork on a monthly basis or have their health insurance taken away. The Trump administration, which approved the waiver of Medicaid rules to allow the program, the first of its kind in the nation, is appealing Boasbergs decision. Among other issues, Boasberg found that federal officials failed to engage with the risk of significant coverage losses if the program was allowed. Thats precisely what happened: More than 18,000 Arkansans were stripped of their health insurance. Attorneys for the Department of Justice, on behalf of the Trump administration, argued that Boasbergs order caused and will continue to cause significant disruption, hindering the Trump administrations dream of launching this experiment in other states. The enforced pause in taking health insurance away from poor people, the government argued, would be to the detriment of the States and the federal government, which looks to the results of demonstration projects to determine fruitful courses of action.The federal government also argued that the massive coverage losses in Arkansas were mostly due to the ill-fated decision by the Hutchinson administration to only allow beneficiaries subject to the work-reporting red tape to do so via a glitchy web site only a tiny fraction of those subject to the electronic requirement actually did so, whether they were working or not. The Hutchinson initially defended this web-only approach, but under a wave of criticism added a telephone hotline option in December. Theres no evidence that this is working any better, but the Trump administration says everything is fine now. Hutchinson offered his thanks to Trump. With the expedited hearing, Hutchinson could have a chance to kick more people off of their health insurance by early next year.

Prosecutors decline to charge police officer in shooting death of Bradley Blackshire (UPDATED)
04/19/2019 5:36pm

Pulaski County Prosecutor Larry Jegley will not bring charges against Little Rock Police Officer Charles Starks, according to the LRPD and the prosecuting attorneys office. Starks, 31, fatally shot BradleyBlackshire, 30, in a parking lot on the corner of West 12th Street and Rodney Parham Road on Feb 22. Police said Blackshire was driving a vehicle that had been reported stolen.According to initial police accounts, Starks fired on Blackshire after Blackshire accelerated and hit Starks. But on Feb. 27, the LRPD took the unusual step of relieving Starks of duty. He remained on payroll, but had to turn over his badge and gun. On March 7, the LRPD released a 25-minute critical incident video. It shows Starks police vehicle speed to a stop in front of the vehicle Blackshire was driving. Then Starks asks Blackshire repeatedly and aggressively to get out of the car. Asked by Blackshire what hes done, Starks says, Get out Ill explain to you in a second. Seconds later, Blackshire says, What you gonna shoot me for, I aint got Starks continues to demand that Blackshire get of the car. Blackshire says, No. The car Blackshire was driving begins to move slowly forward in what appears to be an attempt to get around Starks police vehicle. Soon after Starks begins shooting. He fired into the car at least 15 times. Jegley, in a letter to LRPD Chief Keith Humphrey, said the shooting was justified because Starks was confronted with the imminent threat of deadly force in two forms: 1 the vehicle that was driving toward him and from which he had no duty to retreat, and 2 his reasonable belief that Mr. Blackshire was going to shoot him. Jegley says Starks believed Blackshire said, Youre gonna have to shoot me, instead of What you gonna shot me for. Jegley also says that when Blackshire puts the car into gear, his hand goes out of sight. Starks said he couldnt tell if Blackshire was reaching for something. Jegley writes that Desaray Clarke, who was a passenger in the car, said Blackshire was digging around in his pocket where she says he normally keeps his gun. Jegley says that Starks said that he moved in front of car in an effort to take cover behind his vehicles engine block as officers are trained to avoid getting shot. Starks also said that he was squaring up to Blackshire so that his vest would provide maximum protection if he was shot. Jegley, in his letter, anticipates that critics will point to how slow Blackshires car appears to be moving. There is less than one second that passes between Starks getting bumped by the vehicle, the vehicle continuing towards Starks, and Starks firing his first shot. So even though the video gives the impression of everything happening slowly, these are truly split-second judgements that Starks is making. An LRPD spokesman also said today that an internal investigation into the incident had concluded, but said it would take approximately two weeks for Chief Humphrey to make a final decision on Starks status. Protestors blocked the intersection of Markham and Broadway on Tuesday during a City Board meeting, demanding justice for Blackshire. Omavi Shukur, an attorney representing Blackshires family, provided the following statement from the family: Charles Starkss actions were criminal. The family disagrees with the prosecutors decision and will be undeterred in our pursuit of justice. We ask that the community not give the authorities any excuse to further neglect their responsibility to make amends for this devastating tragedy. Let us be constructive in the wake of Starkss destructive actions. We seek justice, not retribution. Retribution without justice does nothing to help us reach our ultimate goal of ensuring that no family has to experience what we are going through right now. Mayor Frank Scott issued the following statement: I received notice this afternoon from Little Rock Police Chief Keith Humphrey that Pulaski CountyProsecutingAttorneyLarry Jegleysofficewillnot filecriminalchargesagainstCharles Starks,theLRPDOfficerwhoshotandkilledBradleyBlackshireonFebruary 22nd.
