Officer Betty Shelby mugshot

 

Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby turned herself in early Friday morning and was booked on first-degree manslaughter for the shooting death of Terence Crutcher.

Apparently Betty received the VIP treatment because she was booked and released on $50,000 bond in 20 minutes.

I’ve stood in line at Chipotle longer than that.

Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler said Shelby’s “fear resulted in her unreasonable actions” which lead to her shooting Crutcher.

Her attorney claims she fired because Terence was not following orders and she believes he was reaching into his (rolled up) window for a weapon.

Let’s see how this plays out…
