Not at all surprising in Oklahoma. Oklahoma has the worst people in America, the whole state is full of ignorant and corrupt people. This is only one case that came to the surface, there are easily thousands and thousands more where innocent people are in jail in Oklahoma for not having ever committed a crime. They should hang this white lady. She is lower than the scum in the sewer.

"...no Tulsa officers have been charged with a crime."

Dimes to donuts that even if they are charged it'll never go to trial where the dirty cops would get what they deserve. This IS "Oklahoma" you know!

I've seen too much of this crap ever since I was a teenager (and that was a LONG time ago). Until recently most of 'em just had to "lay it out in jail" even though they were innocent. Now, finally, SOME justice is being done, but to me it won't be enough until the crooked cops who FRAMED all these people get the same treatment as the people they FRAMED!

You are absolutely right, and Im sure there were hundreds of Okie people on here condemning this guy right and left for the crime he DIDNT commit!

This would never happen in Texas right? Wasn't in Texas the sheriff was pulling people over taking them to jail and would release them if they gave them all their money and jewelry? Corruption is in all states

There are far more dirty cops on the TPD than people realize and I hope that someday they are all exposed and shamed in public. I am glad that this gentleman was released in time to see his son graduate. He will never get those 5 years of his life back that were taken away by some dirty pigs that had a god complex.

When you sue the Tulsa Police Department your are really only suing the citizens of Tulsa, and the cops just laugh it off.
Sue the corrupt cops individually if you want to actually punish the evildoers.
That, and make sure they loose their CLEET work permits so they cant just go to some other community that hasnt heard of them and continue their corrupt ways wearing a different uniform.

I couldn't image being in prison for something I didn't do. Glad to see Mr. Haley finally got justice.

I hope he sues the pants off of everybody he possibly can. If for no other reason, to aggravate them and give them 5 years of hell.

I agree. And it's good to see that his son is going to college considering his father was in jail. He could have easily fallen into a bad lifestyle.

I know the dad could sue but does anyone know if people falsely imprisoned are offered compensation without suing?

Once again, you are missing the point, people. This man was a hardened criminal. Regardless of whether or not he was convicted of THIS crime, he should have been in prison for many others. It's not like he was some upstanding citizen who was thrown in jail just because he was black.
And, Smush, yes, people who are released from prison for reasons of wrongful imprisonment are routinely given millions of dollars without ever having to sue.
DwightGuy: Why would you impose a blanket sentence on a man whom you say that even if he was not convicted of this crime, his past has enough criminality in it to impose your blanket sentence? Under what pretenses are you capable to judge this man and give him your preferred sentence? I honestly do not think I am missing the point, I think that you on the other hand are very quick to judge and condemn people that you know little about.

What do they mean, a crime he did not commit? Bobby was literally caught in the act of making a half a kilo of crack with another half kilo of cocaine ready to go with all the fixins...all at his junk yard. What about the evidence found at his house as well? What about all the other twenty or so officers that were on the search warrants for Hailey's home and salvage yard? Are they all dirty too. As for the infomant? How does one explain how all these officers show up to serve this search warrant on false information from a CI and magically everthing she says the police would find, they found.

This is no victory for Tulsa, it's a crying shame. Tulsa will suffer greatly from people like Bobby Hailey Sr. being let out. I would encourage citizens of Tulsa and the Northern District of Oklahoma to look at the criminal history of Bobby Hailey Sr. and Jr. to see if justice was really done.

What a tragic story, with hopefully a happy ending. What a wonderful father that instilled in his son the mindset to look at the big picture, His future. Haley and Anthony you both are my hero
I hope that these corrupt cops are made to pay for the damage done to each family.

Police need to stop playing GOD with peoples lives. There are good cops and there are bad cops and the sad thing is they all have badges. Where do we "the public" go to fight the corruption against these rogue cops. I have had enough with the police asking for the publics help to solve crimes and yet when it comes to a bad cop you hit the "blue wall of silence." Police yourselves and show the public that we can trust you.
