There is little to no evidence of the formal implementation of new policies. A key example of this is that the policy provided for body-worn cameras in the dashboard, which cites page 318 of the Public Policy Manual, is, in fact, an older policy for Mobile Vehicle Recording Systems. This policy is specific to police vehicles and does not encompass body-worn cameras. In fact, body-worn cameras are not mentioned once in the current Public Policy Manual.

It was raining that morning.
Not a heavy rain, not drenching rain; a nuisance rain. It was the type of rain that fell just enough to make that air feel that gray, damp kind of cold. The kind of cold that makes it seem like the day is better spent asleep. But this day was different. This damp cold air was not sullen, it was electric. I stood outside in this buzzing air, waiting with anticipation with my student standing next to me. Today, inside the red brick building before us, he would cast the first vote of his life.
Anna America spoke up for herself and colleagues who were called racist. A lecture began on the severity of Nazis and Klansman. Citizens were told that when things don’t go our way that we assume the worse and call others racist. That was the most belittling thing I have ever heard them say. The citizens that spoke were intelligent, provoked thought and explained their grievances appropriately.
It is no secret; your district has zero dollar discount stores. Councilors imply you are friends with Rupe Halmer, the developer who will be constructing the fifth-tenth dollar discount store in North Tulsa. Do you believe your acquaintance or friendship with the developer impacts your decision to vote for or against the 180-Day Moratorium? Please, explain your answer as thoroughly as possible?
Oppressed people sit under the confines of an oppressor stewing in the lack; the lack of good food, the lack of good education, the lack of good health care but most importantly the lack of opportunity to create the lives where they could live without lack.
Actually, no but I knew deep down with the Centennial of the (1921 Tulsa/Greenwood Massacre) coming soon, that something would take place. How can we reach 100 years of the massacre and Tulsa still honors Tate Brady?
Long-awaited, the Brady Arts Business Administration voted today, Friday, August 25, 2017, to remove the name “Brady” District. The Administration’s decision comes after years of push back from North Tulsa community members who refused to honor known Klansmans Tate Brady by either not shopping or constantly reminding Tulsan’s of Tate Brady’s Klansman’s activities.
As soon as we “blacks” attempt to stand up and do what’s best for us, you don’t want any part of it. But yet you allow the worst possible development to continue to saturate our communities with toxic goods.
Councilor Anna America Lacks Empathy for Tulsa’s Black Community Amid 10.7-year Life Expectancy Gap
This media imagery + Article by the Tulsa World perpetuates the stereotype of the angry black women, that is why people are describing this as if she Vanessa Hall Harper is at war with Jack when she is not the instigator. It also perpetuates the stereotype that Black People are inherently divisive.
