I certainly don't think all TPD officers are bad, I know quite a few who are really exceptional officers and people, however, just like the good news seldom makes the headlines, while the sick and depraved does, the frequency of corruption trials gives all TPD a black eye that is going to be around for a long time. If these two were the only officers accused and on trial for corruption, I would say sure, not too bad for a force of around 800, but in the past couple of years there have been close to 10 so far, that is a pretty high percentage, there is a major problem somewhere.

I am completely lost in understanding what the message is supposed to be in these comments. I think that referencing the race riot in the 20's is a bit dramatic, and the race card has been overplayed. I am particularly intrigued by the comment suggesting that "people will be killed and wives should have spoken up" What are you talking about??? Also, the comment that was made regarding crack dealers having more ethics is a metaphor that makes no sense! Could it be that those commenting these things have a ax to grind due to their own criminal past? Sorry guys, but not every jury is wrong, and prisons aren't filled with the innocent. There are miscarriages of justice, but that happens in an imperfect system. But to make broad generalizations about all police officers and suggest that all are "bad cops" is just not true.

They got more than I expected, I don't know if any of you remember Travis Ludwig, he was the TPD officer who was caught selling coke out of his cruiser, he got nothing, was allowed to resign and moved to New Mexico, probably a cop out there now. My dad always said where there is smoke there is fire, and how many TPD officers have been up on corruption charges in the past two years? Tells you something, and remember, those of us who own property and pay taxes are paying for these trials, plus, now we have over 30 criminals back out on the street due to these gangster cops, I expect them (Chuck) to put regulations in place now to allow the Department to deal with these "glitches" so the public will never know about them, cause Tulsa is looking pretty bad about now, and they know it.

Only in Tulsa if you disagree with someone your ignorant. I followed this straight through and the TULSA POLICE have hampered and intimidated witness straight through. Apparently a Witness against an officer is worth $3 a sheet? No, I have seen the Tulsa Police in action, I will call the Crack dealer down the street as they have more ethics.

i cant believe that as far as we've come we still go backwards to accomidate the state and city rule makers and enforcers. if it had been a regular citizen accussed of these crimes, their family would be in tears hearing "guilty on all charges", let alone the sentencing stage. as in the wells case ive never seen a jury find a peer guilty, only for the judge to dismiss their ruling and start dropping charges. again, its another sad day in tulsa. may the creator bless the less fortunate!!!!!

tulsa has reverted back to the days of 1921. tulsa juries send petty crimanals to prison for hundreds of years with minimal evidence but fails the community on this day. this reminds me of the rodney king verdict-no justice. tulsa has had many hendersons since the crack epidemic and im positive its plenty left. everybody better stay inside because this has opened the door for even more innocent people, especially low income, to be wrongly accused, wrongly convicted, and excessively sentenced to prison. im glad my peers made it out of their situation but feel sorry for the people who will have to go through the tulsa judicial system in the future. a big thank you to the the father and daughter who spoke up! we've been telling them for years but they wouldnt even 'listen' to us.
