The only thing worse than government leaders disregarding public safety, is when they get defiant & expect special treatment from those who swore an oath to protect us all from such dangerous lawlessness.
Rep. Dean Davis was swerving down Aspen Avenue, in his home city of Broken Arrow, last night. He was clocked at 54mph in a 40mph residential arterial avenue. He was on both sides of the road as he was being pursued for a couple miles southbound, by the Broken Arrow police. When stopped, the former school teacher refused to submit to an alcohol level test. He did fail numerous observation test indicators. Then he asked the officers to contact their chief, before making any decision on whether to arrest him.
It's grievous to see a man I've increasingly admired, let me down so deeply. Dean is a very engaging man who made a name for himself as a champion of protecting individual freedoms in this recent legislative session. He scored 2nd highest in the House Freedom Index. Davis replaced Michael Rogers, a former educator, major league baseball player, and now the Secretary of State.
It wasn't a Holiday Inn He Stayed At..
Davis spent the overnight in the Tulsa County jail on complaints of DUI-first offense, speeding 11-15 mph & obstructing or interfering with a police officer. He remained there into Saturday afternoon in lieu of $1,000 bail, according to official jail records.
Editor's Note: This one is personal. I was driving my wife home from babysitting grandkids, just minutes after this lawmaker careened down this road I drove on. Had my wife & I not stayed extra minutes at the kids' house, we would have driven head on, toward this drunken menace.
"I will ensure this does not happen again while working through the due process of the justice system.”
We believe in redemption and we believe in praying for those who serve us. As Rep. Davis demonstrates the needed corrective measures in his life, it will be his constituents who must decide if he is fit to bear their trust. I personally hope and pray that Dean Davis steps up and does so, humbly. For God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.
