Oklahoma jail officers played ‘Baby Shark’ on repeat as a ‘torture tactic,’ federal lawsuit says

Last year, the Oklahoma County district attorney’s office investigated the incidents and charged the two former jail employees and their supervisor with cruelty to a prisoner and conspiracy, the lawsuit says. Former Oklahoma County Sheriff P.D. Taylor told the Associated Press last fall that officers Christian Charles Miles and Gregory Cornell Butler Jr. resigned during an internal investigation and that Lt. Christopher Raymond Hendershott retired.

“It took us thirty years to reach this moment, and expectations for this $ 175 million facility were high. It exceeded all of those expectations,” Holt said. “And I sincerely believe that the creation of this place is unique in establishing Oklahoma City as an indigenous and indigenous national and international capital.”

He said the $ 300 million resort development next to the museum announced by Chica Sonation last month will attract more new tourists and conferences from all over the country and around the world.

OKC City Council to consider ward redistricting and addition of two wards




Quote
The newly released 2020 Census shows dramatic growth in the city of Oklahoma City. As a result, all wards have far more residents than the 2010 census.

Also, the ward may be growing unevenly. This means that some city council members represent far more members than others.

This has been a problem since the county jail was constructed in the 70s.  You would think they would have shown some improvements.  The county shouldn't have an overpopulated jail.

I don't believe overcrowding is either a cause of, or a justification for brutality and deliberate civil rights violations.
