MAYOR STODOLA MAKES INCREDIBLY INSENSITIVE AND MORONIC REMARK AT PRESS CONFERENCE ON CLUB SHOOTING



The Arkansas Times posted a enhanced video of a clip from a televised news conference held on Saturday afternoon at LR City Hall in which Mayor Mark Stodola is caught making a remark that voters need to remember at the next election.

A reporter asks LRPD Chief Buckner why there weren't any fatalities during the shooting spree at Power Ultra Lounge on Saturday morning and LR Mayor Mark Stodola is heard saying "bad shots" while turning to look at the white City Board of Directors members standing behind him.

City Director's Erma Hendrix, Doris Wright and Ken Richardson were noticeably absent from the press conference and no explanations have been forthcoming.

Mayor Stodola's uncalled for remark caught Chief Buckner off guard and made him stutter and stammer for a few seconds.

When it was Stodola's turned to speak he made the comment that the individuals that had guns in the club were felons and were not supposed to have guns, even though LRPD had no idea who actually fired shots in the club and if any were felons or had any type of criminal record at all.

Still no word from the mayor when the task force he formed back in 2015 to deal with violent crime will ever have a report or finding of their efforts. 

Word of a petition circulating for Stodola's removal from office is popping up on social media. We urge all citizens to sign it if they have the chance.
