Video Shows Police Shooting Unarmed African American With Arms Raised In The Air

Police have released video of a shooting that occurred in Tulsa, Oklahoma last Friday which has since reignited the debate over the consistent shooting of unarmed black men by Police officers in the United States.

Terrence Crutcher was shot by police on Friday, and the video of the incident was released Monday. The video follows a disturbing trend of recent police shootings involving unarmed African American males.

Crutcher was stopped by police and was shown walking back to his car with his arms raised high to indicate surrender. One of the officers then said  “That looks like a bad dude too, he must be on something”, then shot him.

Review of the scene showed Crutcher had no weapon on him and in the car, yet he was shot anyway.

His family is demanding an investigation into the shooting and sanctioning of the officer involved.


Police chief Chuck Jordan told a news conference that they would investigate with the aim of achieving justice for the family of Cructher.

“I’m going to tell you right now that there was no gun on the suspect or in the suspect’s vehicle,” Jordan said. “I want to assure our community and I want to assure all of you and people  across the nation who are going to be looking at this: we will achieve justice.”
