Abuses of power by the Sheriff of Delaware County, Oklahoma are nothing new. One news article, centered around a mass rape in the Delaware County jail, described it as “The Rape of Delaware County”. In 2014, disabled veteran Ed “Hoss” Turlington shot Darrell Philpott, a convicted drug dealer in self-defense. At the time, the drug dealer had three felony convictions in neighboring Arkansas and multiple outstanding warrants for his arrest in neighboring Missouri. However, the Delaware County Sheriff ordered Turlington arrested. Later, Turlington learned the drug dealer had what locals refer to as “snitch immunity”, and the police protection that came with it. In 2017, the drug dealer earned his fourth Arkansas felony conviction (meth-related). Once out of jail, Turlington used his law enforcement training and experience to investigate the investigation. He retained former local Assistant DA Winston Connor. Connor was unable or unwilling to get Turlington’s charges dropped. Connor failed to enter into the record the exculpatory evidence that was withheld from the Court by the Sherriff. He also failed to address the Prosecution’s star witness’ perjuries. In January of 2019, authorities charged Connor with ten felonies, including soliciting murder to a Delaware County cop killer and drug ring leader. Turlington waived his right to an attorney and presented the withheld and altered evidence to the prosecutor. Turlington also showed the prosecutor proof of Philpott’s perjuries and felony convictions. The prosecutor refused to acknowledge any of it. On 12 May 2020, Turlington warned on social media that he would post “true and accurate, documented and very embarrassing videos” of the prosecution team if his case wasn’t “dropped soon”. Less than two months later, and over five years after Turlington’s false arrest, and the misery it caused him and his family, the authorities dropped the case. This was a case of corrupt law enforcement and abuses of government power that nearly ruined a man’s life until he took matters into his own hands. This is a true story.
