UPDATE: Lt. J. C. White, a spokesman for the Little Rock Black Police Officers Association said its membership of about 120 still overwhelmingly supports  Humphrey’s leadership of the department.

The BPOA sees the controversy as an outgrowth of the agenda of the Fraternal Order of Police, which sided along with the command structure with Officer Charles Starks, fired by Humphrey over his actions in the fatal shooting of motorist Bradley Blackshire.
