Put the "fun" back into dysfunctional, Tulsa!

“On a per capita basis,” Kline writes, “Tulsa far surpasses cities notorious for misconduct, such as Los Angeles, New York, Detroit and Philadelphia.”

“The Tulsa Police Department is arguably the most embattled police force in the country,” Mason writes. “Rocked by a recent corruption scandal that has so far resulted in the dismissal or reduction of 32 criminal cases, at a taxpayer cost expected to run into the millions, the TPD is ensnared in an epic legal mess.”

In Russia, Prisons for Police Thrive
By ANDREW E. KRAMER

NIZHNY TAIGIL, Russia — Like a scene from a felon’s daydream, all the
inmates at a prison compound here in western Russia — some 2,000 of
them — are former policemen, prosecutors, tax inspectors, customs
agents and judges.

Most of the day, they mill about, glum-faced, dressed in prison
clothes. The only visible hints of the policemen’s former employment
are the occasional buzz cuts.

Russian penitentiary authorities offered a rare tour of this
specialized penal colony recently with an eye to demonstrating that
these inmates receive no privileges.

In some ways, the officials proved their point. At least as far as
accommodations go, the prison is as grim as most. Inside the walls of
unpainted concrete slabs, barbed wire slashes the prison yards into
zones for those doing hard time and minor offenders. And like the men
and women they put behind bars, former police officers here live in
rough-hewn brick barracks, toil in a workshop and eat boiled buckwheat
and cabbage.

But the tour of the prison, Correctional Colony 13, also underscored a
point that the authorities might not have intended to highlight: most
of the inmates are here for work-related infractions, from accepting
bribes to attacking suspects.

As Andrei V. Shumilov, a former detective, said of his conviction for
beating a suspect with his fists during questioning: “I was
investigating a crime, and I committed a crime myself.”

By way of justification, he mumbled that the man had suffered only
“damage to soft tissue.”

For a paper who wants to promote peace and harmony and tolerance, they sure seem to have a lot of hateful articles.

There's a significant amount of your intolerance aimed at minorities and the poor looking through your few but dated posts. We couldn't expect you to understand intolerance so why did you imply their articles are hateful?  Getting the truth out only hurts those exposed for breaking our moral codes... This Land promotes peace and harmony by holding up light to injustice. Perhaps you are not familiar with journalistic integrity.

Good journalism that distinguishes right from wrong is not a form of hate. Explain? Where is the hate?

Police Dept. corruption? Only been happening since when, around the time of prohibition? There have been corrupt "enforcers of the law" going back to Roman times, and I'm sure it will be that way long after most of us are gone.

The Politics Plus one doesn't. This Land Press has this gem: "Ultimately, “Misconduct City” is a powerful portrait of a police force struggling to adequately deal with its problems.
On Tuesday, May 31, This Land Press will release “Misconduct City: The Assault of Arthur Bradley Reveals a Culture of Chaos at the TPD” on its website. "

I saw the title of this and immediately thought he was talking about a hockey movie or some such...

I'm honored that you took the time to read my "few but dated posts." You may want to brush up on your comprehension skills if you think I'm prejudiced toward the poor or any legal American citizen.

You must be good at making friends and making people feel welcome.
