School Lockdowns

Hello DP, I am still fuming right now. My local community college just had a lockdown drill. This is not abnormal for my school. However, this time the reasoning for the lockdown drill was a group “protesters” that were “attempting to start a riot.” They had actors holding signs and yelling while police stood by. At this point the announcement came over the intercom for the lock down, and all the students were told to hide in a back room.

I’ve been asking myself: Why would they go through the trouble to create this fake scenario? Is this a demonstration of force against the First Amendment? Maybe an example of what will happen to you if you protest here? No one would have the opportunity to capture evidence of police misconduct if they were all quickly ushered into a back room.

I openly shared these concerns with the 40 or so students and faculty while we were locked in a dark room together. Most of them realized how ridiculous the entire situation was, but they were still quite apathetic about it. I attempted to ask the police captain some questions but I didn’t get much out of him he just replied with: “maybe you should come by my office sometime, but I’m going to be busy for the rest of the day.” I am still unsure if this invite was genuine or if the captain was simply deflecting. What questions should I ask this guy if I get another chance? What would you do DP Community?

Dude rips into panhandler when he sees her driving 2013 Fiat (video)

Not all panhandlers are scam artists. But some are, and one way to get yourself busted pretty quickly is to drive your 2013 Fiat to your, er, "job" and get spotted by the same guy who saw you begging earlier. (and gave her money daily)

Tulsa- Police officer charged with first-degree murder in 19-year-old's death

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A Tulsa police officer was charged Monday with first-degree murder in the off-duty shooting death of his daughter's boyfriend earlier this month.

Shannon Kepler was charged in the Aug. 5 death of 19-year-old Jeremey Lake. Kepler, a 24-year-veteran of the force, also was charged with one count of shooting with intent to kill because prosecutors say he shot at his daughter during the alleged confrontation in which Lake was killed.

Oklahoma primary... what a disappointment.

Oklahoma held primaries today. You have to be registered either D or R to vote. The primaries are voted by party affiliation. Well, I am registered R so I run right up to my precinct and vote. I voted for only 1 incumbent. 85-87% of the people voted for the incumbents. It makes me sick, sick, sick.
We had 2 really great candidates that did so poorly. Randy and Dax, you did get my vote!
I'll be voting for all the Indies on the ballot if I am still in Oklahoma in November.
(one small bright point is that we do have to show ID in Oklahoma.)

Oklahoma Initiative Would Make Pot a Legal, Exportable Cash Crop

Marijuana reform advocates hope Oklahoma will live up to its nickname – the Sooner State – by becoming the first U.S. jurisdiction to both legalize cannabis for personal use and allow it to exported as a cash crop.

In the best-case scenario for pro-pot campaigners, there will be two initiatives on the November ballot: One that would allow medical marijuana and another more far-reaching initiative that would comprehensively dismantle status quo pot policies.
