It’s unfortunate there are people who really think an injustice was served with Bates’ conviction.  One comment from the open mic on KRMG said he did us a favor because Harris was a convicted felon in commission of another felony so Bates did society a favor.

How much more redneck could someone be?

Mentalities like this and the overwhelming stupidity of the Oklahoma legislature make it less and less likely I’ll spend my retirement years here.



KRMG caters to the lowest common denominator and then dummies them down to the Murdochian World View.


Have started looking at other states.  Geez, I just know I ain't gonna fit in Oregon or Washington.  Where is there in this country for an extreme moderate to go??


The little bits and pieces I hear about New Hampshire make it sound interesting...and it is a beautiful state!  Consider the irony of the people in their prisons making the license tags with the state motto.  "Live Free or Die"

Just listening to the religious zealots callers and commenters about the removal of the 10 Commandments on KOTV's call in comments.

I won't criticize him for appealing to traditional views of law enforcement's role in protecting citizens from criminals. it was a good argument, but ineffective in view of the evidence in this case.


Even the staunchest crummegons are waking up to the fact that police now arent what they were 20 years ago.

As for KRMG, they used to be a good news station, but they have fallen so low in ethics, grammar, etc.

They never were a very good news station - they had good weather coverage during storms...still do.  They were just all we had.

Bates gets two mugshots while Glanz gets none?

Bates gets two mugshots while Glanz gets none?

That appears to be accurate. He also still gets special access to the Courthouse and special parking for his criminal hearings.

Quote
But Lewis says that perhaps the most egregious example of special consideration is that Glanz never went through the booking process and had his mugshot taken once he was criminally charged.

“That was something the citizens needed to see, that the people in power go through the same process,” Lewis said, adding that someone in a position of authority such as Glanz should be treated in the same manner as any other citizen.

Second shot looks like a DUI booking.  He must’ve been smashed.

I thought it very big of We The People to publicly sympathize with Moss Jail's mismanagement of Bates (withholding medical treatment, keeping him naked in the cell, etc.)

Random thoughts:

-I had figured Bates would arrive in the courtroom in a wheelchair with drool streaming down his chin.  The slow shuffle and mussed hair was a nice touch for the cameras though.
-Jail cots don’t come from the DoubleTree, sorry Bob that’s the breaks when you become a convicted felon.
-Sounds like Bates is definitely persona non grata amongst the deputies who are actually paid for a living to watch over someone who foobared up the entire TCSD living out his Walter Mitty fantasy to be a cop.
-Brewster sounded a bit unhinged.  Love the part where he’s complaining about poor jail conditions, yet he’s defended the TCSD against allegations like this before.

Its not like the Tulsa county jail is someplace they laugh at you as you die naked on the floor.

Well they do seem rather adamant everyone gets a picture taken.
