Posted 06.24.11

The June 2011 issue of This Land is indeed a machine that demands accountability. But it also delivers some of the most free-spirited and downright hysterical offerings to be had in Oklahoma.

With this special issue, This Land Press unveils its first investigate report based in Tulsa. Reporter Joshua Kline offers an unflinching look at the Tulsa Police Department and its penchant for excessive force. It’s the kind of tale that’s long overdue.
