MADILL, Okla. -- Outages across the city of Madill left more than 1,500 customers without power Monday afternoon. O G & E officials say the birds flew into some fuses causing some circuits at a substation to go down.

At one point over 1,500 people reported outages.

Madill police reported the outages began around 3 p.m. Monday, causing the early closure of the Marshall County Courthouse around 3:45.

The O G & E website shows power has been restored to most of the city.

    To. Army MP. I mean no disrespect when I type this.. I think Madill did an awsome job considering the heat, and what little water they had if any.. I didn't see any of you so called citizens going up to any ofc and asking if they wanted or needed water, Gatorade, ect. All I saw was a bunch of upset down grading folks, bad mouthing M.P.D. They have no control over the electric that's OG&E. If your upset over the power call them. 800-522-6870 TOll-FREE. I think you were upset over the electric being out and took it out on M.P.D. If you were that worried about the traffic situation you should have got out and assisted them not reticuled them. I hope to see you helping next time something happens and Madill has to assist. Have a Great Day Sir/Madam

    to darkside, thanks for your post. I am a SGT. Retired. I know that what I saw was very unprofessional and could have very likely been an accident. the officer is responsible if an accident occurs at his traffic control point. this post was about a traffic control incident and does not reflect my veiws on the quality and effectiveness of all officers in Madill or around anywhere. traffic control is a basic part of a law enforcement's job whether covering for an elec outage, escorting a funeral, aiding in a detour, or aiding in an vehicular accident. also it does not discriminate on weather conditions. I have worked in all of the worst conditions you can think of, but that doesn't change the fact of what I saw

    i am proud to say that madill has hired the most qualified officers and i am proud of the job they do. i do know about law enforcement and i will leave it at that. as for the disgruntled mp/officer. i have a term i like to use. if you can not take the heat stay out of the kitchen. i also beleive that this all the time i should give you.

    to don, I'm retired now but the stardard for law enforcement hasn't changed. I worked long hours, was underpayed, and spent days off appearring in court. I spent my own money on uniforms, gear, etc. and I don't regret any of it. you are very welcome to join the force yourself. I hope you can pass the physical, the background check, the lie detector test, and the academy and then feel free to post a knowlegdeable reply

    I feel my traffic control training was adequate. I spent approx 18 months at a duty station equivelent to the entire population of marshall county and ran traffic control approx 1/3 of that time daily deticated to rush hour traffic. what I witnessed was not an officer that that knew a driver and was wrong in his actions. he put his own life in jeopardy and could have very easily caused another accident. traffic control is just that! he absolutely had no control whatsoever! I'm sure I'd been arrested if I kicked an officer's tire in discust.

    IF KXII WOULD NOT EDIT MY COMMENTS YOU WOULD HOLD YOUR HEAD IN SHAME FOR BAD MOUTHING THE MADILL OFFICERS THAT STOOD OUT THERE DIRECTING TRAFFIC KNOWING MOST OF THE PEPOLE DRIVING SHOULD NOT BEHIND THE WHEEL IN THE FIRST PLACE. TO THE ARMY MP: YOU SHOULD NOT COMMIT ON SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN'T DO YOURSELF WITH OUT A SGT HOLIDING YOUR HAND AND IF YOU ARE A SGT THEN YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER TO BASH OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT NO MATTER THE COLOR OF THE UNIFORM. REMEMBER- OF THE TROOPS FOR THE TROOPS. MP TO THE BONE!! TO CHRIS FROM HOUSTON: STAY HOME!!!

    To Army MP: As a spouse of a former MP, MP's don't have the greatest training in traffic control or patrol. MP's don't alway work the road, depending on duty station, we were at one post, where they did no patrol at all. If you don't use it, you lose it. I am sure the Madill Officers did the best they could, and for your info, traffic control is not taught in C.L.E.E.T (Council on Law Enforcement Education and Traing) which is required for Oklahoma police officers to attend. When I saw the officers they seem to have everything under control...no one was injured, no wrecks... and traffic did flow, I have seen it worse when relying strictly on traffic lights.

    To Army MP - As you probably know Madill is a small community, and it is possible that the officer knew the person driving the vehicle. And I am quite sure the driver knew the driver. And that was just a joke between the two. Did you ever think of that?
