TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa's police chief says it was not appropriate for a Tulsa police officer to write in an online essay about the recent killings of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, that "We are at war!"

Police spokesman Sgt. Shane Tuell says the post was written by Maj. Travis Yates.

Tuell says Police Chief Chuck Jordan reviewed the post Tuesday and found its wording inappropriate, but says the chief would not comment on what disciplinary action, if any, Yates would receive.
