What Happened To Terence Crutcher?

Tulsa Police buck a man who had a vehicle break down. Of course, we're supposed to give the police the benefit of the doubt right? After all, we can't complain about police brutality and supporting Black Lives Matter is anti-cop.


Again, I am done sending my condolences to the families. I am tired of seeing this stuff happening in the United States. I would like Congress to pass police reform. I would like something done about gun crimes in the United States. I want to have accountability for police officers who kill unarmed individuals.

I will not stand for the pledge or national anthem until things are done.

The junk food media is covering a fatal police encounter in which a Black man who was unarmed with his hands in the air being shot dead by the Tulsa Police. The officer was a White female and the victim was a 40 year old man who had no weapons on him. His vehicle broke down in the middle of the road. He was the father of four children and was a member of his local church.

Terence Crutcher was the victim of this shooting. The officer who shot Crutcher has been identified as Betty Shelby. The officer who deployed his Taser was named as Tyler Turnbough. These two are in the freezer pending a state investigation.

Shelby been on the payroll for about five years. Shelby has been accused of using excessive force twice during her career, local news agitators reported.

Both of those complaints were determined to be unfounded, the news station reports. Details of those cases were not immediately available.

Her personnel file also shows that she is a field training officer, meaning she works to train rookie officers.

She has also received four letters of commendation and an Oklahoma meritorious service award, according to the junk food media. Shelby is married to one of the officers who piloted the helicopter.

The officer who was in a helicopter said that Terence, "looked like a bad dude. Probably on something".  That merit criticism.

Turnbough been with the Tulsa police for nearly seven years.

The video that's been shared across the social media shows Terence with his hands up.

This tensions are high right now. You may remember that we covered the controversy a year ago involving a spoiled millionaire who took the role as executioner to a man who was on his back being detained. This spoiled man heads to the iron college for a measly nickel for shooting Eric Harris.

Think if Eric Harris was a spoiled millionaire who had shot this guy. He would be sent to the iron college for LIFE or gotten the DEATH CARD for it.

Here's how the police and junk food media justify a shooting of an unarmed Black man.

  • He refused to comply to an order
  • He had been pulled over numerous times.
  • He has a criminal record (for felonies or traffic violations).
  • He had drugs on him.
  • He had a firearm on him.
  • He had served time in prison.
  • He took off running.
  • The cop feared for his (or her) life. 

The family along with their attorney urged the public to not cause violence. They said that Terence's name will not be smeared by the police and junk food media.

“We are truly devastated, the entire family is devastated,” said Tiffany Crutcher, Terence’s twin sister.

“You all want to know who that big bad dude was? That big bad dude was my twin brother. That big bad dude was a father. That big bad dude was a son. That big bad dude was enrolled at Tulsa Community College. … That big bad dude loved God. That big bad dude was at church singing with all his flaws every week. That big bad dude, that’s who he was.”

How long will it take before a concern troll bring up Black on whatever violence or President Barack Obama's name?

How long will it take before a conservative agitator start bringing up Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson?
The cops who deployed weapons are in the freezer.
When will they peak into the social media habits of Terence and this officer? Obviously I am expecting pro-Trump, pro-cop and White extremists trying to find an ounce of wrong on Terence's part.

Refusing a cop's order isn't merit for death. Oklahoma is an open carry state. Terence didn't have a firearm on him. Given if he did, they would justify the shooting because in an "open carry" state, a Black man with a firearm is still a criminal.

Obviously we'll expect the conservative Black extremists to attack the character of Terence or Black Lives Matter.

Milwaukee County sheriff David Clarke, Jesse Lee Peterson and Kevin Jackson will find some reason to say to blame Terence for his death. They blame Obama for "Black males living in fatherless homes" or his policies "hurting Black America." They will demonize protesters and say that it's best to get the information before blaming the cops.

When the law bucks Black men, they probably killed a father. So it's pretty disingenuous to say that Black fathers aren't taking care of their children. Terence was a father who took care of his children.

Now his children will be fatherless. Will they justify the fact that the law took away their father?

The Tulsa Police are doing an investigation into the fatal shooting. They are calling upon the U.S. Justice Department to do a federal probe into its standards.

Did you know that Oklahoma had the most fatal police encounters?

So far it's on record to have 70 fatal police shootings this year alone.
