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.
Tulsa's finest back at it again...this is one crazy couple with badges..turns out they shot at their own daughter for daring to run after the murder of her friend. Obviously the city did the usual thing and suspended them with pay. Nothing new here.
TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Two Tulsa police officers who are married have been arrested in the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old man who was walking with their daughter, authorities said.
Jeremy Lake was found shot to death Tuesday night on a street near downtown, Tulsa police department spokeswoman Jillian Roberson said.
After commenting on the topic "Mark of the Beast" - From the Book of Revelation, I was asked to entertain the OP with my thoughts, even if it was "just for funsies". http://www.dailypaul.com/323211/the-mark-of-the-beast-from-t... Rather than clutter up what they have going on, I decided to put my thoughts in a clear manner. These are, MY THOUGHTS and you have every right to not read them, so please choose wisely.

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.)
Liberty Rising: Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin Signs Bill Repealing Common Core
by WATCHDOG | BIZPAC REVIEW | JUNE 6, 2014
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin on Thursday repealed the state’s controversial Common Core curriculum.
The “federal overreach tainted a Common Core program created with well-intentioned goals,” Fallin said. “President Obama and Washington bureaucrats have usurped Common Core in an attempt to influence state education standards.”
I'm running a grassroots campaign for Governor of Oklahoma. I made this video to encourage the people supporting my campaign to keep at it, because it is worth it even if all we accomplish is having fun, making friends, and learning more about Liberty! We're changing the paradigm of our friends and neighbors!
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.
I thought I'd share my gubernatorial run with the Daily Paul:
Liberty activist and former Christian pastor Dax Ewbank, 38, has announced he will challenge Mary Fallin in the Republican primary for the office of Governor. Ewbank was born and raised in Oklahoma and is a lifelong Republican. Ewbank and his wife Julie currently reside in Guthrie along with their 7 children, ages 2 – 16.
Gun-grabbing fever has finally reached the conservative stronghold of Oklahoma.
An annual meet-and-greet at the Oklahoma State Capitol in Oklahoma City turned sour when an anonymous senator demanded that the 40 sheriffs in attendance remove their firearms.
But rather than disarm, the sheriffs voluntarily walked out.
When given the choice, Wagoner County Sheriff Bob Colbert said, “We all packed up and left.”
“One of the senators, who they wouldn’t tell us, complained because we were armed in the building,” Colbert added. “Everybody in that building knew who we were.”
Oklahoma residents who produce their own energy through solar panels or small wind turbines on their property will now be charged an additional fee, the result of a new bill passed by the state legislature and expected to be signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin (R).
On Monday, S.B. 1456 passed the state House 83-5 after no debate. The measure creates a new class of customers: those who install distributed power generation systems like solar panels or small wind turbines on their property and sell the excess energy back to the grid. While those with systems already installed won’t be affected, the new class of customers will now be charged a monthly fee — a shift that happened quickly and caught many in the state off guard.
