Terrence Crutcher was walking away from Officer Betty Shelby before being shot down for not complying with her requests to lie down on the ground after his car stopped in the middle of an Oklahoma highway. Late last night, Shelby was found not guilty by a jury last night after deliberation. Crutcher’s death was among many cause by police last year sparking nationwide protests, follows a trend of law enforcement being acquitted in situations that happen so quickly, end violent and seem to be avoidable. In recent police incident where Jordan Edwards, the youngest person to be killed by police, the officer admitted to having PTSD (Post traumatic stress syndrome) but does that excuse the sudden use of force without words?
“I’m feeling that his intent is to do me harm and I keep thinking, ‘Don’t do this. Please don’t do this. Don’t make this happen.'” Officer Betty Shelby
