Another UNARMED Black Man Shot? And Black People Should be Voting for Who?


His vehicle was simply stalled on a highway in Tulsa, Oklahoma, yet all these police officers responded with their guns drawn.

Graphic video showing the shooting death of Terence Crutcher, 40, on Friday, went viral, adding the case to the list of police-involved shootings raising questions about relations between law enforcement in the United States and black men.

Police said they were responding to a call of a vehicle abandoned in the middle of the roadway. In video from officers’ dashcams and also from a helicopter, four officers are seen responding as Crutcher holds his hands up in the air and walks  away from officers, toward his stalled vehicle.

In the video taken from the helicopter, a male is heard to say, “That looks like a bad dude too. He might be on something.”

Police said Crutcher did not respond to their commands and that one officer used a stun gun on him and another shot him.

Police Chief Chuck Jordan, meeting with reporters, assured that justice would be done and called in the Justice Department before the Justice Department called him to ask for an investigation.

“I’m going to tell you right now that there was no gun on the suspect or in the suspect’s vehicle,” Jordan said. “I want to assure our community and I want to assure all of you and people  across the nation who are going to be looking at this: we will achieve justice.”

20xp-tulsa2-master768Crutcher’s twin sister, Tiffany Crutcher, said the family demands to know what happened and wants charges pressed against police officer Betty Shelby, who shot and killed Crutcher.

We ask for facts, we ask for answers, and we clearly got it through the video and we are devastated,” she said. “The entire family is devastated.”

Tiffany Crutcher, playing on the words of the male on the video shot from the helicopter, said her brother was a good man who loved God.

  4. That white woman who killed him is going to see exactly how those white men stick together. I can tell by the news conference they are going to place the whole blame on her (as they should). She thought she was one of the boys. Them white men will repurpose the situation to act like they are doing something about killing unarmed black men. All the while not willing to take a stand when the officer was a white man. Watch, you will see.

  13. White police officers are afraid of black males. That is a fact. Why do anything to provoke them?

    Why was Crutcher walking toward his SUV while officers yelled at him to stop? And why did he put his hands in his truck?

    Didn’t he know these unexplained actions would provoke the white officers to overreact violently?

    A case of suicide by cop must be considered before we overreact.
