Society Wears Blinders

I am very disappointed with the showing last night at city council, but not discouraged. Two things that I took out of the City Council meeting.

  1. The residents of Lawton just don't care enough to get involved. We live in a society where everyone wears blinders and does nothing to cause waves. Only UNTIL it effects them directly will they speak, Then we get no reactions or knee jerk reactions.... If people will be involved, then you would not have to worry about extreme reactions.

  2. Keith Jackson made it very clear that he wanted Citizen of Lawton to have the ability to contact the Fidelis Group. So if you want to get involved, with out coming out publicly, then please contact the investigation team at

If you don't get involved, no mater what your opinion is, then you have absolutely no right to complain.

Have Proof, But Lawton Says No You Don't!

Something that has been bothering me since KSWO did a story about Electronic Insurance Verification for cars… See Story Here

Oklahoma Insurance Department released a bulletin (VIEW HERE)2 weeks ago stating that Nothing in the Insurance Code precludes a law enforcement officer from recognizing an electronic version of a security verification form that has been approved by the OID. Therefore, the Oklahoma Insurance Department does permit insurers to issue security verification forms in electronic format as well as in paper format.

Oklahoma Statute, Title 47, Chapter 7, Article 6, Section 7 (See Code): Whereas Paragraph 5 clearly states that “ "Security verification form" means a form, approved by the Insurance Commissioner, verifying the existence of security required by the Compulsory Insurance Law.”

Lawton City Code 23-1-103 Paragraph A & D (See Code): Does NOT specifically rule out electronic versions.

So then who is breaking the law? Am I breaking the law by adhering to State Statues, or is the City breaking the law by not recognizing that the Oklahoma Statue is the Law of the Land.

So the big argument it that electronic forms can be forged. To that I say, so can paper forms. Someone can get insurance and then cancel it a week later and they still have the paper copy. That is why the state has paid millions info an "Online Insurance Verification System". This system was fully functional on July 7, 2009. (See Press Release).

This is just another example of Lawton Politics.......

City Council Meeting

As most of you know I have been very critical of the Lawton Police Chief James Smith during our van theft case.  I don't expect everyone to agree with what I have said or how i have done things.  But when your family is violated and the agency in charge of helping you decides to do nothing, I felt like I have been left no choice but to go higher.

So last night I had every intention in presenting my case to the City Council and showing them how everyday citizens are treated.  I also was going to show that the Police Chief had lied to either me or to the City Council.  Lying to either one is in it's self is disrespectful and unbecoming.

So here is the packet that I put together.  Even though I was not able to speak, I was able to place a packet in front of every member of the council before the meeting started.
