Here we go again.
@JesseBenn / Add “car breaking down” to the seemingly ever-growing list of things that can get you killed by cops if you’re Black.
The fatal police shooting of an unarmed Tulsa, Oklahoma man with his hands up apparently happened after his car stalled. Tulsa Officer Betty Shelby fired the fatal shot while another officer used a taser on Crutcher.
“I’m going to tell you right now, there was no gun on the suspect or in the suspect’s vehicle. I want to assure our community and I want to assure all of you and people across the nation watching this: We will achieve justice,” said Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan said at a press conference Monday afternoon.
Watch for someone local to kick the case over the slow as molasses in January Department of Justice. That hasn’t happened yet but it has been a convenient out in many other police shootings.
