TULSA, Okla. – Protesters in Tulsa used the shooting death of Eric Harris by a reserve deputy sheriff as an opportunity to demonstrate against police brutality. But, it’s starting to look like corruption and not brutality is the issue. The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office is looking into allegations raised by the Tulsa World that someone in authority told supervisors to lie about the training received by 73-year-old Robert Bates, an insurance executive who contributed campaign money to the sheriff and equipment to the department.
