The scientists evaluating the Oklahoma seismicity were looking at a quake deceleration that FITS THE OMORI LAW.
"A generalized Omori law for earthquake after shock decay."
By Robert Shcherbakov, Donald L. Turcotte and John B. Rundle
 Earthquake aftershock sequences have been found to approximately satisfy three empirical scaling relations: i) the Gutenberg-Richter frequency-magnitude scaling, ii) Båth's law for the difference in the magnitude of a mainshock and its largest aftershock, and iii) the modified Omori's law for the temporal decay of aftershock rates. The three laws are incorporated to give a generalized Omori's law for aftershock decay rates that depend on several parameters specific for each given seismogenic region. It is shown that the characteristic time c, first introduced in the modified Omori's law, is no longer a constant but scales with a lower magnitude cutoff and a mainshock magnitude. The generalized Omori's law is tested against earthquake catalogs for the aftershock sequences of the Landers, Northridge, Hector Mine, and San Simeon earthquakes....
These laws of physics that have been studied repeatedly to validate the law of aftershocks do not apply to the Oklahoma quakes even with lower levels of water injected into the rock. The Oklahoma quakes are induced by human activity and are different than quakes that happen because of the Earth's many pressure to it's plate system. The induced quakes are outside the definition of ordinary physics. The Omori law does not apply. NO MATTER HOW MUCH THE CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION OF DONALD TRUMP SHUFFLES THE PAPERS, THE REALITY AND FACTS WILL DISPUTE EVERY ASPECT OF THEIR MANIPULATIONS.
