Oklahoma Reserve Deputy's Attorneys Release Training Records

April 20, 2015  | 

Defense attorneys released some of the training records Saturday for a 73-year-old volunteer sheriff's deputy charged with manslaughter in the fatal shooting of an unarmed suspect in Oklahoma.

The records for the reserve deputy include certificates showing what training he received, job evaluation reports and weapons training and qualification records dating to 2008.

The reserve deputy's attorneys said the 64 pages of records released to The Associated Press and other news organizations include records he copied and kept for himself. Although there are time gaps in the documents provided, some of the records seem to indicate the reserve deputy was proficient in firearms and dozens of other training courses.

"For the first time today, we feel like someone's starting to look at the other side of this as far as his qualifications," Scott Wood, an attorney for the reserve deputy, said after the documents were released.

The reserve deputy has said he mistakenly pulled out a handgun rather than a stun gun when he fatally shot Eric Harris on April 2 as he lay on the ground. He has been charged with second-degree manslaughter.

If nothing else this story is something to keep the media busy picking apart for some time to come. I'm surprised that Sharpton hasn't made his grand entrance already.
