I originally posted the following information and commentary to my Facebook wall…
Oklahoma Cop Claims She Was Justified in Killing Terence Crutcher Because She Went “Temporarily Deaf”:
In the wake of the Terence Crutcher police shooting, we’ve all been waiting to see what excuse Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby would settle on to justify the killing.
First, she claimed he was reaching into an open window, making her fear for her life, but the helicopter video showed the window to have been rolled up.
Then she claimed he was reaching into his pocket, also making her fear for her life, but the video doesn’t show that either. Plus, she only shot after another cop tasered him, so he obviously was not in fear for his life.
My Commentary: Is “temporarily deaf” some sort of police jargon for “permanently dead inside”?
