DA Harris Responds to Allen Shields Debacle: No One Could have Done Better

leave a comment »

A defensive-sounding District Attorney Tim Harris commented on the seven-hour-standoff-that-should-not-have-been, in which a sociopath who was released on his own recognizance to menace the streets of Tulsa ended his life after once again grabbing a gun and a hostage:

“As unfortunate as it was it came down to Allen Shields was the one cooperating witness that would give the state of Oklahoma truthful testimony. I had to take into consideration his background and all of his contacts with police. Very, very difficult and unsavory decision on my part but it was the only decision that we had at the crossroads where we are at,”

Yup. No one could have done better than that.
