Cop Who Shot Terence Crutcher Has History Of Drug Use, Domestic Disturbances

Shelby marked “yes” under a prompt that asked whether she had “possessed and used illegal drugs” in the past.Shelby also has two excessive force complaints.


Opinion –

I really felt after listening to the prosecutor pronounced the charge against Shelby, he didn’t seem to pleased with his announcement, as he stressed her innocence until proven guilty by a judge or jury, I will try to look into as to whether he has stressed the same when other alleged suspect(s) faced similar and or other criminals charges as well.

My interpretation of his statement sends me some concerns over fairness in the judicial system there.

My Daddy always told me if you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen.

What is even more outrageous is the fact that seconds after Crutcher was not only tasered but also received a bullet, absolutely NO medical aide was rendered immediately after.

Terence Crutcher’s Family Should Seek No Less Than 60 Million, Cities across the nation maybe getting a little to comfortable with the settlements of deaths by police officers averaging 3 -5 million.

The killing of Terence Crutcher is one of the most distasteful killings by a police officer I have ever seen.
