No Justice, No Peace: Shields Case Highlights Perils of Plea Bargain

leave a comment »

Tulsa DA Tim Harris knew that Allan Shields was such a dangerous man after he kidnapped a woman and her child with a ‘murder kit,’ that he was able to convince the judge (unnamed) to deny bond for the creep.

So what did Shields have to say that was worth risking the life of that Tulsa woman and her child again? Maybe his offer of hearsay evidence in the murder of Neal Sweeney? Well, yes.

We understand that defeating the no-snitch culture in Tulsa is difficult for Harris, that plea bargains are a way to expedite prosecutions. But how did Shields go from being such a menace to society that – even with the ironclad charge of kidnapping on his record – testifying that he ‘brokered’ an actual murder makes him such a non-menace that he is released to menace Tulsans again?
