Lost Ogle Show: Taking a Dive into SQ 805 w/ OK Policy’s Damion Shade

Although most people have either A) voted or B) made up their mind on how they’re going to vote, we thought it would be interesting and informative to take a partisan, deep-dive into SQ 805 and Oklahoma prison reform with Damion Shade of the Oklahoma Policy Institute.

We spent some time with Damion talking about SQ 805, what it does, and what it will hopefully accomplish. We also address some of the misleading concerns some of its authoritarian opponents in the Oklahoma law enforcement complex (a.k.a. the people who profit from putting people in jail) have been peddling on social media. In addition to all that, we also talked about criminal justice reform in general, why Oklahoma is the incarceration capital of the world, and who knows what else.

Give it a listen:

  1. […] ‘a.k.a. the people who profit from putting people in jail.’
    Being that OK is a ‘business state’ putting people in jail in big bid-ness and more than likely here to stay.
    Even if it passes by a vote of the people our fearless, illustrious leaders will try to legislate around it.
    Luckily, I’ve never had a dog in this fight.

  2. I voted Yes on 805 already. Anything that makes Frank Keating step down from his board position from the conservative OCPA think tank is a good idea. The state question I voted no for is SQ 814. I don’t think it’s a good idea to give 75 percent of the TSET money to a failed state legislature that never keeps their promises. Besides, if it doesn’t pass, they’ll steal from the allotted education money like they always do down at 23rd and Lincoln.

    1. Same here. When I saw Frank Keating opposed it I knew it would be good for Oklahomans.

      For SQ 814, I just don’t trust the legislature. Why should I? What good have they done lately without being caught redheaded doing something else foolish? I don’t know all the ins and outs of how the money can be distributed, but anything that would allow them to touch the TSET honeypot couldn’t possibly go well. I have a strong belief that they would direct the money back to themselves somehow and healthcare would mysteriously not be funded from it.
