A Federal Civil Case  has been filed on behalf of Oklahoma veteran Hank Miller who was murdered by Pushmataha County Deputies, Keith Knoll & Brian Columbus on May 30, 2021. Deputies unloaded EIGHT rounds into a compliant and UNARMED Miller, and OSBI attempted to justify the shooting with a press release claiming a "deputy was hit by the vehicle Miller was driving", this information is contradicted by the bodycam footage.

The wrongful death complaint filed in the Eastern District of Oklahoma Federal Court states:

Of the three deputies on scene at the time of the shooting—KnollColumbus, and Steely—not one of them rendered first aid to Hank following the shooting. In fact, none of the deputies even checked for a pulse. Instead, the deputies stood around talking and making phone calls.

A group of Oklahomans with a mission to seek justice by providing transparency to the public and accountability to those who police our communities, neighbors, and friends.
