Rep. Mike Reynolds, R-Oklahoma City, said the resolution is unnecessary and most lawmakers don't really know the details of what law enforcement officers have done that merit the Legislature's honoring them.
Shumate said, “This is just a good way to send a message that we are very thankful of the cooperative efforts, very proud of our law enforcement.
“Most know that in this case, on Good Friday, our law enforcement moved very, very quickly to bring justice for these families,” he said.
The Good Friday shooting spree left three dead and two injured. The suspects, Jake England, 19, Alvin Watts, 33, were arrested days later and have since confessed to the shootings, according to police documents.
Shumate said the shootings were “a shocking event that caused widespread fear in the community, and the quick action of local law enforcement officials brought a swift resolution to the event that ended citizens' fear.”
