Tulsa Police Department deletes Twitter account in wake of Terence Crutcher shooting

Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler filed the charges against officer Betty Shelby, who shot and killed 40-year-old Terence Crutcher on September 16. The trial of the white officer who shot him, who was charged with voluntary manslaughter, ended with a hung jury, and prosecutors did not seek to retry him. His hands are up and a female officer is following him. "And they will just have to get better and better and better", he said.

'They know it's essential for the safety of our communities and our officers, ' she sated.

"We are safer when communities respect the police and police respect communities", she said.

The Democratic presidential candidate opened a speech in Orlando, Florida, on disability rights with remarks expressing regret over the "very upsetting" deaths of two men at the hands of police in recent days - one in Tulsa and the other in Charlotte. Crutcher is left lying in the street. Shelby then pulled out her gun and had Crutcher at gunpoint as she commanded him to get on his knees, Wood said.

It is not clear whether Mr Crutcher drops his hands at any point - his family say he did not - and angles on both videos obscure him moments before he is shot by a stun gun then a gun.

A second officer appeared to fire his Taser at Crutcher around the same time that Shelby opened fire. "What happened? But maybe people like that, people that choke, people that do that, maybe they can't be doing what they're doing", said Trump.

The unarmed black man fatally shot by a white Tulsa, Oklahoma, police officer in an incident captured on video posed no imminent threat, lawyers for his family said on Tuesday, disputing an allegation the man was reaching into his vehicle.

Ivy Tech hosting Sept. 28 event for former ITT students
As of June, 26,000 students had filed for loan forgiveness from the Department of Education, according to the Washington Post . It previously operated a campus in Cedar Rapids, but that location was already closed.

Police have held back many details in the case, citing the investigation, but Sgt. Dave Walker confirmed Tuesday that investigators found the drug PCP in Crutcher's vehicle.

"You look at that video and nothing on there justifies their use of excessive force", Crutcher family attorney Benjamin Crump told CNN.

While attorneys of Crutcher's family have said a window of Crutcher's vehicle that he was standing near when he was killed was raised - citing blood splattered on the window - Shelby's attorney, Scott Wood, insisted that the window was open and that Crutcher reached into it, failing to listen to several of Shelby's commands.

Shelby was concerned about Crutcher reaching toward his pockets because a person with a weapon often touches it to make sure it's still there, Wood said.

"His door is open, and that says a lot about him and his character", Lewis said. "We're all sick. We feel for the (Crutcher) family", Lois Shelby said.

He said Crutcher's head was tilted but his eyes were on Shelby. Crutcher Allegedly Attempted to Reach Into the SUV As the video from the helicopter begins, Crutcher was "angling" toward his vehicle while Shelby repeatedly commanded him to stop, Wood said. "It's unbearable. And it needs to become intolerable".

"How can he be reaching into the auto if the window is up and there's blood on the glass?"
