Tulsa police are looking for information after two men claiming to be officers beat down the door of an east Tulsa home.

Police said around midnight; two men wearing ski masks and hoodies beat down the door at a home near 41st and 129th.

The men left with an unspecified amount of cash. Police have no leads and want anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.

TPD routinely makes arrests in plain clothes and unmarked cars, it's a recipe for disaster. If you ever suspect they might not be real cops, it is better to use whatever force is necessary to save your life than to just allow yourself to be killed. Also, the spokesman is dead wrong, police dont like to be asked for ID and will harass or arrest you for "obstruction" if you do. It's a no-win for honest citizens.

And once again, bowing to the gods of political correctness, NO description of the thugs is provided.

If the victims had shot the intruders, and they ended up being off-duty cops (like the OHP murder at the motel) you would have never heard their side of the story.
