The Tulsa police officer who shot Terence Crutcher thought that he was on PCP and behaving erratically, according to the officer’s attorney.

Officer Betty Shelby had very recently undergone drug recognition training and believed that Crutcher was high before firing a single shot at Crutcher, according to attorney Scott Wood.

However, the attorney for the family, Damario Solomon-Simmons, insisted that Crutcher was not behaving erratically in the moments leading up to the fatal shooting. “The video shows that he was not belligerent,” said Solomon-Simmons. “The video shows what the video shows. That’s the great thing about video … it has no biases.”

Lack of compliance? No, Terence Crutcher’s crime was being black

“The video shows that officers were not in any immediate danger. The video shows that Terence did not make any sudden movements.”
