Aaaaaand, at some point that evening, Crutcher stopped long enough to snort some PCP and put himself and others at danger with his hallucinations.


But not Shelby.  As was shown by the video.

I'll be very blunt here.  Walton is an idiot.  This was a straight PR move.


Do we see a pattern?


Brown now has a new badge, working as a detention officer for the Rogers County Jail. Sheriff Scott Walton hired Brown after seeing the posts in question.

Always has been the pattern of Rogers County.  For at least since statehood.  Probably before.

Walton said Brown’s firing after the department received complaints was an “example of spineless, coward leadership.” He compared Brown’s firing to how he felt the Tulsa Police Department treated former officer Betty Shelby.

Maybe it will play out as a new "reality" cop show on A&E...

I'm guessing they deserve each other...

The Rogers County Sheriff’s Office is failing its residents.
https://www.tulsaworld.com/opinion/columnists/kendrick-marshall-who-is-being-served-in-rogers-county/article_233f9a70-1ab0-5e3c-aad9-784940ac7a74.html

Understanding that this mentality is prevalent among law enforcement officers, what message does Walton’s defense of Brown send to all people of Rogers County? What are they to think of an entity that would compromise its relationship with citizens, especially minorities, to protect the reputation of a disgraced officer?
But Walton has proven he is no respecter of optics as it relates to hiring ex-Tulsa police officers who exited the department with baggage in tow.

I'm betting his next 'new hire' will be that Ft Worth cop who went to the woman's house a few days ago to kill her.  And did.

"I get it. We're trying to train our officers better, we're trying to shore up our policies, trying to ensure they act and react the way the citizens intend them to - that they act and react with a servant's heart, instead of a warrior's heart."

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/fort-worth-police-officer-aaron-dean-resigns-today-after-fatally-shooting-atatiana-jefferson-in-her-home-2019-10-14/



The “war on cops” rhetoric perverts the mental calculations officers make in volatile moments by weighting them toward violence. When you’re inundated with messages that you’re perpetually under attack, every gesture starts to look furtive, every twitch looks like a killer reaching for his waistband. And when officers make these sorts of mistakes, we tend to reward them for their courage, which only reinforces the “shoot first” state of mind.

But often, courage is holding your fire. Courage is absorbing the risk of waiting an extra moment or two to gather more information before making a decision that may well save yourself but could also do irreparable harm to an innocent person. Courage is taking the extra seconds to learn that the “gun” you feared is actually a toy, or a cellphone, or a video-game controller. Or that the person you’ve mistaken for a threat has made the mistake about you. Courage is accepting the risk of not shooting the silhouette in the window, even though it might be a threat — because it’s much more likely that it isn’t.

That "training" should be banned, period.

After he gets out, Walton will be looking him up...
