Oklahoma Jury Says Acquitted Tulsa Officer Had Non-Deadly Options

According to court documents released on Friday, the Oklahoma jury that acquitted a white officer for fatally shooting an unarmed black man believed race was not a factor in the shooting. The jury also believed that Officer Betty Shelby acted according to police training even though she had non-deadly options available. After a week-long trial, 43-year-old Shelby was found not guilty of manslaughter for killing 40-year-old Terence Crutcher in September 2016. The incident was captured on a widely seen police video that stirred debate over racial bias in policing.
