Oklahoma Sheriff



Welcome to Law Enforcement Week here at OPOD. We will be looking at those who protect and serve this week. We start with this picture of the Sheriff of McAlester, Oklahoma. He is sitting out front of the jail.

  3. Yeah, how'd you like to be a black person, in that town after sundown?

  4. I've spent a good bit of time in McAlester. It's a convenient "halfway point" between my home in Texas and my kin in Kansas City. Sometimes I stop there on my way north, and sometimes the whole clan gathers there for a weekend, especially when one of my cousins is working over in Arkansas. I've been out after sundown, and I've seen plenty of people of all sorts. Property crimes are higher than the US average there, but violent crime is lower across the board. Whether stereotyping is higher, I can't say.

  5. Speaking of Law Enforcement, exactly how is the Law of Gravity working in the photo?

  6. Lady Anne, I thought the same ... I first saw a small version of this picture and though he was resting against the wall. Then I loaded the page and saw that he is quit an active maneuver, with his left foot as counterweight. If he intended to "rest" in this manner, he'd soon have to get back up from falling :-)
