Dash cam video shows unarmed black man with hands in air before Tulsa police shoot him dead

Published

on

Dash cam video released by the Tulsa Police Department on Monday showed 40-year-old Terence Crutcher with his hands above his head moments before he was shot and killed by one of the officers at the scene.

At a press conference on Monday, Chief Chuck Jordan explained that the video was “very disturbing — very difficult to watch.”

The video shows multiple police cruisers approach Crutcher’s vehicle, which appears to be broken down in the middle of the road. Crutcher is seen with his hands in the air. Both hands appear to be empty.

Pastor Rodney Goss of Morning Star Baptist Church, who was able to view the dash cam video as well as video from other department vehicles, said that all views showed Crutcher’s hands in the air.

Goss also denied claims made by a police spokesperson that suggested Crutcher was shot because he refused to obey commands.

“It was not apparent at any angle from any point that he lunged, came toward, aggressively attacked, or made any sudden movements that would have been considered a threat or life-threatening toward the officer,” Goss told Tulsa World.

The officer who pulled the trigger was later identified as Betty Shelby. She was placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation.

Chief Jordan said on Monday that there was no indication that Crutcher was armed.

"I'll say it with great respect," said Trump. "Number one, she's not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?"

Carroll has alleged that Trump forced himself on her in a department store in the 90s, saying that he "just went at it  ... he pulled down my tights and it was a fight."

Published

on

When Josh Duggar was accused of child molestation, his parents rushed to arrange a marriage, according to celebrity gossip site Radar.

The family was made famous when "The Learning Channel," now known as TLC, began the show "19 Kids and Counting," featuring the family and their far-right religious ideology. The show was canceled in 2015 when Josh Duggar was accused of child molestation. The show then spun off "Counting On," about sisters Jill and Jessa Duggar and their marriages and children.

Published

on

On Monday, the Washington Post reported on an interview between former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and PBS NewsHour's Judy Woodruff at the Aspen Ideas Festival.

Ryan continued to insist that he supports President Donald Trump, saying that 'didn't have the best relationship' with him but that 'he's taking on political correctness; he's taking fights that a lot of people want to see fought. The forgotten man that he speaks to is a person that finally feels like they're being taken seriously, they’re being paid attention to.'" He also pointedly refused to say whether Trump was a good role model for American children.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
