VERDICT JUST ANNOUNCED IN THE TRIAL OF OFFICER BETTY SHELBY (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by CatFan @, Green Country, USA, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, 22:03

Officer Shelby is a white woman serving on the Tulsa Police Department. Last year, she encountered a big black man, Terence Crutcher, who had left his car in the middle of an arterial street in north Tulsa (traditional black part of city). She called for help when he was unresponsive to her instructions. Eventually, Shelby shot Crutcher and he died shortly thereafter.

The District Attorney charged her with first degree manslaughter within a few days of the incident. Officer Shelby's trial was held this week in the Tulsa County Courthouse, and concluded just minutes ago with a 'not guilty' verdict. It was a unanimous decision by a mixed race, nine to three female jury.

Expect to see and hear national news about this tonight and tomorrow. All the major news networks have news crews here for this trial.
