TULSA - An off-duty Tulsa County deputy, who happens to be an African America woman, was video tapped saying “Just like n—-gers” over the weekend at an east Tulsa IHOP.
The deputy appeared to be talking about customers who wanted their meal comped.
We the People Oklahoma is now calling for TCSO to fire the deputy.
According to the man recording the deputy, the comments were triggered by the credit card machines being down.
