The New Professionalism

Article by Radley Balko.


So this seems pretty blatant.

A woman testifies against Tulsa cops in a corruption case, and is expected to testify in her family’s related civil suit against the city. In the weeks after the criminal trial, police get warrants on outstanding traffic violations, all misdemeanors, going back to 2007. Naturally, the police serve these warrants by forcing their way into her home.

No intimidation there at all, right? I mean, I’m sure Tulsa PD serves misdemeanor traffic warrants by breaking into citizens’ homes all the time.

Once they were inside her home, Tulsa PD says one officer also accidentally fired his gun. They won’t release that officer’s name.
