A Tulsa Police Officer named Betty Shelby fatally shot 40-year-old Christian pastor named Terence Crutcher on Friday night. And now it's getting national attention.
Pastor Crutcher experienced car trouble after attending Tulsa Community College — where he was taking some college classes - when he was brutally MURDERED by Tulsa police.
Now footage of the shooting has been shown "privately" to pastor Crutcher's family. But Tulsa officials are trying to STOP the general public from seeing it.
“His hands were in the air from all views. It was not apparent from any angle at any point he lunged, came toward, aggressively attacked or made any sudden movements that would have been considered a threat or life-threatening toward the officer," explained now sitting pastor Rodney Goss of the Morning Star Baptist Church.
Up until the video was released, officers have LIED and said that the Christian pastor approached the officers aggressively while refusing to obey commands to raise his arms.
Video from one patrol car’s dash cam and that as seen from a police helicopter circling above clearly shows Pastor Crutcher not acting aggressively as the cops surround and then murder him.
