OKLAHOMA CITY OFFICER-ASSAULT ALLEGATIONS
Residents say assault allegations against Oklahoma City officer make them distrust police

Residents of a neighborhood where an Oklahoma City officer is accused of sexually assaulting women say the allegations make them distrust police.
Resident Tammy Bell said Saturday the officer was "taking advantage of his shield."
Another woman who lives in the racially mixed neighborhood on the northeast side, Seantah Graham, said she was already scared of the police before the allegations came to light.
Graham said police officers have a lot of power and that "it's your word against theirs" whenever something occurs.
