Jury Acquits Tulsa Officer Betty Shelby in Shooting Death of Terence Crutcher
http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/jury...er-n761206

From the article:
Quote:A jury on Wednesday acquitted a white Oklahoma police officer in the shooting death of an unarmed black man in Tulsa last year.

Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby, 43, had been charged with manslaughter in the September 2016 shooting death of Terence Crutcher, 40, during an encounter that began with the report of a stalled vehicle.

The district attorney's office announced a verdict had been reached shortly after 9 p.m. local time (10 p.m. ET), more than eight hours after deliberations began, NBC affiliate KJRH reported.

The manslaughter trial against Shelby opened May 10 with prosecutors laying out how the five-year veteran of the Tulsa Police Department encountered Crutcher — what should have been a routine traffic matter that went too far, they said.

...

Once again, scared white cop gets away with killing unarmed "scary" black guy, and the defense said that the dead guy caused his own death. No, the scared racist cop caused the death of a man desperately trying to save his own life. Of course, the jury is not going to convict a cop that killed a non-white suspect. The DOJ will investigate, but I don't expect anything in this case.

P.S. This was a grand failure during PBO's administration. Wagging your finger doesn't change anything.

Conservatism (n.), the irrational fear that somewhere someone you think is inferior is being treated as your equal.

The shame belongs to the shooter and the jury. The state is red, the jury was most likely white. There is no justice.
