People in America are displaying their concern for behavior of SOME policemen by refusing to stand up for the Pledge of Allegiance or lie down or stage peaceful demonstrations in Charlotte, North Carolina. Frankly, it is impossible to keep up with the shootings,t the demonstrations, the anger, the response by defenders of police that the only ones who are guilty are those who protest. However,in Tulsa County, District Attorney Kunsweiller has filed criminal charges against officer Betty Shelby for the murder of Terence Crutcher.
He charges that she “unlawfully and unnecessarily”shot and killed him when he had his hands in the air. We have TV footage, we have clear evidence that Mr. Crutcher did not have a gun,nor was he under the influence of drugs. The criminal charge does bring some sort of closure to one case, but there are many others which will never result in any charges against any police.
Unfortunately, until there are new procedures in place within police departments to handle black skinned men who are charged with some crime, the end result will be another shooting, another upsurge of angry protestors.and more claims by Donald Trump that the victims are members of the police.
