Tulsa shooting: Policewoman acquitted of manslaughter

Attorneys for white Oklahoma officer rest case

“This verdict does not alter the course on which we are adamantly set, ” said Bynum, who took office in December.

Shelby, who is trained as a Drug Recognition Expert, previously said her initial impression was that Crutcher was under the influence of what she suspected to be PCP. "We witnessed injustice in its most disturbing form", Owens said, adding that "the absence of violence does not suggest the presence of peace". This is happening all across the nation, all across the state.

"We are deeply disappointed that yet another police officer has eluded conviction for killing an unarmed African American", The National Association for the Advancement Colored People (NAACP) Legal Defense Fund said.

A White Tulsa, Oklahoma, police officer who fatally shot an unarmed Black motorist a year ago has been found not guilty in his death, CNN reports. Tulsa World reports the protesters banged on the hotel windows before they were covered from the inside. The police chief will review an internal affairs investigation that will determine whether she again patrols Tulsa streets. But yet you use deadly force.

Shelby could spend between four years to life in prison if she's convicted.

It seems that's what happened, as the protest ended shortly after midnight, according to the World. Tulsa Fraternal Order of Police Chairman Jerad Lindsey responded somberly to the trial.

Jurors deliberated for nine hours after closing arguments. Betty shelby had the gun. betty shelby was following him with the gun.

"I ask Oklahomans to respect our criminal justice system and especially the jurors, who heard the evidence from both sides in this case".

Shelby looked stone-faced when the verdict was read, but her lawyer said she was "elated" with the jury's decision. I appeal to Tulsans and others to remain calm.

Bynum said the Crutcher family are good people who experienced bad loss, and he also said need to recognize men, women of the police department are good people who put their lives on the line everyday.

Tulsa's mayor is also speaking out after Shelby's verdict.

"Going forward, the relationship between the police department and the community is torn", Lewis told the AP.

The superintendent of Tulsa Public Schools has released a statement.

Here's everything you need to know. "Tomorrow?' What can I tell him?"

Shelby had testified that Crutcher didn't obey her command to lie on the ground, and she fired because she had a reasonable fear that Crutcher was reaching for a gun through the open window of his auto.

"The facts were there, all the elements of manslaughter were there", she said. "Terence's hands were up, Terence was not an imminent threat, Terence did not attack her, Terence did not charge at her, Terence was not the aggressor". "We're going to break the chains of police brutality", Tiffany Crutcher said.
