When police officers act like they’re above the law, they earn the derision and disrespect from the citizens they’ve been sworn to protect.
But when local police departments do their best and adhere to the oath they took when they first got their badge, the local community loves them – as a recent Gallup poll indicates concerning the increasing amount of respect for police across the country for both white and non-white Americans.
But recently, an Arkansas police chief got in hot water when he was caught driving his red pickup truck 107 MPH on backroads. But he did not get a ticket.
In the video, which was published on LiveLeak, you’ll see the officers finally pull over Brinkley Police Chief Edward Randle after they followed him for miles.

Trooper L. Williams was called in to catch the speeding pickup and as soon as he got out of his car and saw who is was, he started laughing and said, “Where are you going so fast?”
On October 21, the police chief was speeding in his off-duty pickup truck because he needed to “call a game in Clarendon.”
Williams indicated to someone off-camera, saying “Look, this guy right here has been following you for miles.”
- “He’s calling the state police,” the trooper said.
- Randle yelled: “I know you didn’t call the damn state police!”
At that point another, Brinkley police officer approached the truck and said “I didn’t have your plate, so it didn’t go over,” THV11 reported.
