Who’s policing the police?
Todays recent events has everyone wondering, are the cops even actual human beings? Of course they are good and bad but lately, all we have been hearing about is twisted horrid stories about the countries officers who are set in place to serve and protect.
News 6 reports Tulsa, Okla., police officers Shannon Kepler and his wife, Gina Kelper, were arrested for the shooting death of their daughter’s boyfriend Jeremy Lake. When the daughter informed the police about the incident, she stated that she recognized her fathers vehicle approaching the young teens when he asked her “What is she doing the area?” she ignored him and walked away.
The uninvolved boyfriend walked up to her parents to introduce himself. According to the daughter, her father shot Lake two or three times then shot at her two or three times, but missed.
A woman who is a relative of Lake told News On 6 he volunteered at the Day Center for the Homeless and met the Keplers’ daughter there when she needed a place to stay, she had been staying with him and his family recently.
TPD Chief Chuck Jordan released the following statement about 1 p.m.
“Last night two Tulsa Police officers, Shannon Kepler and Gina Kepler, were arrested. Both have 24 years of experience with the Tulsa Police Department. This case, like all homicide investigations, leaves little information that can be released due to the ongoing investigation.
Shannon Kepler was booked into the Tulsa County jail for 1st Degree Murder and Shooting with Intent to Kill. Gina Kepler was booked for Accessory after the Fact.
I as well as the whole Department am saddened for both families involved in this tragic event. The circumstances around this incident drives home the fact that domestic violence is a societal problem and transcends all economic groups.
We as a department, honorably and objectively, continue to serve the citizens of Tulsa.”
