obviously you didnt get it right idiot.. he was involved bc they came through jenks. IF YOU WOULD READ THE WHOLE STORY you would know that but instead you would prefer to be stupid (like many others)and say things such as he was out of his jurisdiction or he killed those two kids.. kids they were not by the way, they knew what the hell they were doing. and i dont care what your profession is if at the end of the day you have to make a fatal choice like go home to my wife and kids alive or go home to them in a body bag.. yea it was that kind of choice... until you have to make that kind of split second decision i suggest you shut that hole on your face and spews stupidity. :)

First off you don't know the entire story. I for one have seen the actual video. It's not what you think. His life was in danger. It was a kill or be killed moment. Back off. And he was INVOLVED in another shooting, he didn't do it tho! He's a good man and an awesome officer. He genuinely cares about doing good by the people. This man is a passionate cop.

OK then lets "GET IT RIGHT" officer McDaniel was one of 2 officers that shot an killed 17 year old Andrew Ridgeway and 18 year old Dusty Cagle in 1999 on 181st Street in Liberty Mounds. The boys had stolen a truck at Glenpool QT then fled towards home, tell me why he was even involved in something that happend outside of Jenks, and why did he have to unload and reload his gun SEVERAL times on 2 teen boys? Can you say OVER KILL!

And what does this have to do with McDaniel? I have seen the name Pike a lot... not McDaniel. Also.. Were you present at the time of this shooting? I don't think so...

McDaniel was involved in the shooting of a motorist in May 2003, in which he and former Tulsa Officer Timothy Pike fatally shot 21 year-old Lucas Andrews at point-blank range. In 2010 Tulsa paid $150,000 to settle a brutality claim against officer Pike from an incident in 2008 where Pike and two other officers beat an unarmed juvenile. Pike moved to West Palm Beach Florida where he was arrested in Jupiter Fl. for felony mischief, destroying property while drunk. McDaniel elected to stay in Oklahoma.
