Well, that prosecutors career is over.

Eureka!!! Surely with the glut of lawyers in this country that could be put to work as police ride along legal consultants. These problems would cease to exist. Problem solved! Now get to work!

Prosecute the trainers, too. And her supervisors. And the person who hired her and determined she was a fit candidate. Fire the whole lot. She was not prepared for that situation. She was afraid, that's fine. But not for cops with guns. And by accounts, she honestly feared for her life but it really does not seem she needed to at the moment she fired. She did not want to shoot that man, you can hear it in her voice. Sad for her. She'll be the rolling head, but a whole bunch of people let her down.

Your rational, well-reasoned response has no place here.

So prosecuting people with no ties to this alleged crime is "rational, well-reasoned"? Why not take it one step further and prosecute the parents of the officer involved, the parents of her trainers and supervisors. Then prosecute the current and previous leaders of the city of Tulsa for establishing a police force in that city. Then prosecute any living descendants of the cities founders and first residents. Then prosecute everyone who has ever been involved in police training anywhere around the country that trickled down to Tulsa.

Sounds reasonable only to someone who spouts of nonsense and then pretends to be someone else back patting his own comment.

It's about time they started holding Police accountable. Guess Tulsa didn't want to burn to the ground again.

HOW ABOUT SUEING THE DEAD MANS FAMILY FOR RAISING ANOTHER ---GER TO DUMB TO FOLLOW ORDERS ! HE ALREADY KNEW WHAT IT WAS LIKE IN THERE !

From the Washington Post, "Betty Shelby worked at the Tulsa Sheriff’s Department from June 2007 to November 2011, according to Deputy Justin Green, a department spokesman. Shelby was involved in a use-of-force incident at the department for “firearms presentation,” Green said. Shelby and other officers entered a home with their firearms drawn as they were trying to serve warrants.

According to her 2007 application to the sheriff’s office, Shelby said she had been married twice before and was on track to receive a biology degree from Northeastern State University in Broken Arrow, Okla. She had previously worked as a convenience store manager, teacher assistant and trainee in the Oklahoma Air National Guard. Shelby wrote that she sprained her knee during basic training and that the Guard did not want to “take care of my rehabilitation,” so she was discharged.

On the application, which was obtained by NBC affiliate KJRH, Shelby answered “yes” to questions about whether she had used drugs and whether she had a victim protection order filed against her. Shelby said she had used marijuana twice as an 18-year-old.

In an expanded answer, Shelby wrote that in 1993, she and a boyfriend had an argument where they ended their relationship. She said the boyfriend hit her car with a shovel and that she did the same to his vehicle. The two filed orders against each other and asked a judge to dismiss them, she wrote.

In 2000, Shelby and an ex-husband were in a custody battle that was appealed to the Oklahoma Supreme Court. In 2002, she wrote that her ex-husband’s wife filed a protective order against Shelby, alleging she made harassing phone calls. Shelby wrote the order was denied."

That chick is crazy and a shooting like this was inevitable. I do not know if that department needed a woman on the force or they were doing somebody a favor by hiring her but it backfired for everybody involved.

This will never stick, but is a poor way to attempt (which it will never be accomplished) to placate these hood looms.

Unless they can prove that officer had X-Ray vision and could see what the suspect was reaching for inside that vehicle, this will never stick.

If anything, the large male officer that backed her up had an opportunity to tackle the suspect before he got to the window, while his hands were up. He also could have tazed the bro.

Comply with the officers orders. Don't keep walking away. What's so difficult?

Anonymous said...

Comply or die? That's too much power for a cop. It's too much power for anybody. The female police officer could not control herself and murdered that man in cold blood.

8:39 As I understand it, the other cop did already take the guy. In addition, photos show the window was up so it seems unlikely he was reaching inside. Why this office decided not responding to her commands was reason to kill him is difficult to justify. If this was a male cop, the charge would have been murder 2, not manslaughter.

That is pretty much the back of every chick in Oklahoma.
