OPD murder Brownie Polk
On Saturday, August 1, the OPD shot and killed Brownie Polk, who they claim was carrying a hatchet. But witnesses and friends of Polk say that he was a tradesman and always carrying one kind of tool or another. The police say there was a complaint made of someone causing a disturbance, but the owner and employees of the store say Polk was causing no disturbance and they didn’t call the police.
