"God Works Incredible Good Out Of Unspeakable Tragedy"

Overview

Terence Crutcher was shot and killed on September 16, 2016 by Officer Betty Shelby in Tulsa Oklahoma. He was unarmed and law enforcement was not called to the scene due to any misconduct from the victim. Officer Shelby admitted to being “afraid” of Terence Crutcher. Her perceived threat of Terence Crutcher resulted, moments later in his lifeless body lying on the street without aid. On May 17, 2017, Officer Shelby was found “not guilty” by a jury of her peers who admitted that the Officer was unfit to serve in law enforcement. On May 22, Officer Shelby returned to the Tulsa Police Department on desk duty and was awarded back pay for missed days of work. Her actions unearthed almost a century of racial tension in Tulsa and left 4 children without a father. His family is committed to ending the tragedies of police brutality and supporting families who have lost love ones to senseless gun violence.
