About this Website...

The 'war wall' in defense investigator Brian Bates' office.

This website was originally created on Feb. 6, 2016 by Brian Bates – Oklahoma City regional EMMY award winning anti-prostitution/human trafficking activist for 23-years, creator of JohnTV.com, the ‘original Video Vigilante’ and investigator for Daniel Holtzclaw’s original defense team. The purpose of this website was originally to simply give me a space to post some articles and insights to the Daniel Holtzclaw case.

The website was revamped on June 18, 2019 (five years to the day from the Jannie Ligons traffic stop that started it all) to mark the launch of my new serialized podcast Bates Investigates: The Daniel Holtzclaw Case.

The website will serve as support to the podcast and as a conduit for the release of discovery evidence.

This website is solely maintained by me and individuals who wish to support my efforts.
