Betty Shelby Acquitted For Terence Crutcher Shooting

Another day, another irresponsible pig getting off. Officer Betty Shelby who gunned down Terence Crutcher in September 2016 while his hands were up and he walked away, has been acquitted.

Shelby, 43, was facing a manslaughter charge and told jurors she “feared for her life” as Crutcher walked away towards his vehicle that had stalled on a local highway.

According to NBC, jurors deliberated for eight hours before announcing their shameful verdict. The trial began just 8 days ago with prosecutors stating that the incident was a routine traffic matter that “went too far.”

Shelby also spoke in defense of herself on Monday telling jurors that Terence Crutcher’s death was “his fault.”

“I did everything I could to stop this,” said Shelby. “Crutcher’s death is his fault.”

S E R I O U S L Y?

No gun was ever recovered from Crutcher’s vehicle and a prosecuting attorney argued that Shelby was “guessing” that he had one when she shot him.

SMFH, another black life lost for NOTHING.

Are you even surprised that Betty Shelby got off for Terence Crutcher’s death???
