Female cop who shot dead unarmed black man charged with first degree manslaughter

Prosecutors in Tulsa, Oklahoma, have filed charges against he white female police officer, Betty Shelby, who shot and killed unarmed black man, 40-year-old Terence Crutcher who had his hands up on September 16. She has been charged with first-degree manslaughter. Dashcam and aerial footage of the shooting showed Crutcher walking away from Shelby with his arms up in the air. The Tulsa County District Attorney's office said Officer Shelby 'reacted unreasonably by escalating the situation' by 'becoming emotionally involved to the point that she overreacted.'
Crutcher's twin sister, Tiffany, spoke to reporters outside of the Tulsa County Courthouse on Thursday and said that the family is happy Shelby has been charged. She said that they hope the district attorney prosecutes the case and hopefully obtains a conviction. Adding that she hopes a criminal conviction will help bring an end to the killing of innocent citizens by police.

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin  also said that she hopes a first-degree manslaughter charge against Shelby provides some peace to the Crutcher family and to the people of Tulsa.

Urging Tulsa residents to be patient as the case works its way through the justice system. She also added that Shelby is innocent until proven guilty.

A warrant has been issued for her arrest and arrangements are now being made for her to surrender. If convicted, she faces between fours years and the maximum sentence of life in prison.

Saw the video and she deserves nothing a life sentence. How do you kill a man that was obviously unarmed and meant no harm.

SHE SHOULD BE MADE TO ROT IN JAIL

That's a good way to start in past cases the suspected cops have only been placed on paid leave and later reinstated and no one gets to know. I only hope the same scale of justice is served in Charlotte, North Carolina, where there has been recent unrest and confrontation between citizens and police over the shooting and eventual death of Keith Scott. I always say this, America is fast sliding back to the days of racial conflicts and one keeps remembering the struggles and efforts of Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph Abernathy, Elijah Muhammed, Malcom X et al. The American police need to be properly trained especially in engaging with the people of colour and in black neighbourhood!
