Update: “Pay to play” cop shooting costs Tulsa sheriff his job


554edc3751be9.imageStanley Glanz, the Oklahoma sheriff at the center of last spring’s controversial killing of a black man by wealthy insurance executive and part-time cop Robert Bates, 73, said through a lawyer that he will resign after being indicted for misconduct by a grand jury that recommended his removal from office. Glanz accepted gifts from Bates, who also was a friend and political supporter, in exchange for letting him play cop; and tried to protect him after he accidentally shot Eric Harris with a handgun instead of a taser. A separate grand jury previously had indicted Bates for manslaughter. You can read more about the case that led to Glanz’ and Bates’ downfall here.
