BREAKING NEWS – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – Instead of protesting poor conditions inside an Oklahoma jail, detainees who held a corrections officer hostage last week were really upset that recent toilet repairs had thwarted their behind-bars drug operation, the jail’s administrator said.
“They’re saying it’s conditions … but that’s absolutely not true,” Greg Williams, administrator of the Oklahoma County Detention Center, told FOX 25 of Oklahoma City.
Meanwhile, the family of a detainee who was shot and killed – after being seen on video holding an object against the neck of a corrections officer – is calling for action against a city police chief and felony murder charges against the two officers involved in the shooting.
Family members of slain inmate Curtis Montrell Williams, 34 – who was awaiting trial on rape and gun-possession charges — say Williams was protesting against poor conditions inside the jail and didn’t deserve to die.
“I knew Curtis for 34 years and I know for sure that he would not just go out and kidnap anyone,” Rhonda Lambert, the slain inmate’s mother, added. “My son is a rapist, not a kidnapper, thus I doubt he would harm any man!”
