Following a long-established pattern where the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation will do a thorough process, but for political reasons, manipulate the evidence to get the law enforcement agency that called them to investigate off the hook:


News coverage of a Jan. 1, 2014, officer-involved fatal shooting in rural Mayes County described a case of self-defense for the deputy.
A 33-year-old Mayes County man, Shane Bridges, was reportedly at his home during the early morning hours of New Year’s Day when he fired a gun at a deputy responding to a suicidal subject call.
The officer, Mayes County Deputy Kyle Wilson, returned fire, killing Bridges, according to reports, which quoted the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

However, evidence uncovered by attorneys representing Bridges’ widow and children casts doubt on the official version of events.
Documents from a civil rights lawsuit filed on behalf of the widow say not only was Shane Bridges not suicidal, no one at the home called 911. Bridges also never fired a shot at the deputy, but rather was killed inside his home after he slammed the front door shut and was then hit by two of 13 bullets fired through the home by the deputy.

Ironic that the Tulsa World story comes out the day after a similar OSBI cleanup in Ottawa County.
