    It was Sheriff Stanley Glanz who appointed his booster and friend, senior citizen Bob Bates, as a Deputy Sheriff. Bob Bates then shot and killed an unarmed father, Eric Harris, during a rather routine arrest.

    On its face, the police murder of Eric Harris, a 44-year-old father in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was wrong. Surrounded by police, Harris had surrendered and was on the ground when Bob Bates, a deputy, claims to have accidentally shot him with a handgun instead of his Taser. For what he claimed was a mistake, Bates was charged with second-degree manslaughter.


    “Bob Bates came on board because he had all this money,” one former reserve deputy said, adding that the sheriff and other higher-ups would “go on these cruises in the Bahamas and in Mexico all the time.”

    “[Bates] foots the bill,” the deputy added. “The sheriff just gave him free rein because he was treating him right. He bought his way into this position.”

    Another former full-time deputy said Bates was “getting glad-handed” around the office because of his wealth.

    “This is your typical Southern good ol’ boys system,” he said, adding that before the shooting Bates planned to take Glanz on a fishing trip to Florida.

    Harris is saying, "He shot me. He shot me, man. Oh my God, I'm losing my breath."

    Harris' face was slammed to the ground with a knee on his head from another officer, and what followed may be the most heinous words an officer, or anyone at all for that matter, could ever utter to a dying man:
    "F*** your breath."

    The video can be viewed below the fold.
