VIDEO: Sharpton Wants Tulsa Officer Who Said Crutcher Looks Like "Bad Dude" Charged
The officer who killed an unarmed man in Tulsa isn't the only one who should face charges, according to Rev. Al Sharpton.
Addressing the death of 40-year-old Terence Crutcher, Sharpton blasted officers who were overheard saying the man looked like a “bad dude” before he was fatally shot by Officer Betty Shelby, the New York Daily News reports.
“One of the things I want to raise Tuesday in Tulsa is what about the other police that were at the scene?” an incredulous Sharpton asked at his National Action Network’s Harlem headquarters. “What about the police in the helicopter? Do they face criminal or disciplinary action?”
Shelby was charged Thursday with manslaughter after shooting Crutcher once in the chest as he approached his SUV with his arms raised. The incident was caught on police helicopter and dashcam video.
