Protestors demand no bond for North Tulsa shooting suspects
Protestors want bond denied for the two suspects in the Northside shootings. Outside the Tulsa Courthouse, they also call for the case to be prosecuted as a ‘hate crime’. About a dozen sign carrying demonstrators gather in the courthouse plaza to demand those arrested in the shooting spree be held without bond. Protestor Andrew Burkes also says it’s a hate crime and should be treated as such.
Suspects Jake England and Alvin Watts are being held on bonds of more than nine million dollars each. It’s not been decided whether the case will be prosecuted as a hate crime.
