Terence Crutcher, a father of four, was on his way home from class at Tulsa Community College when his car stalled in the middle of the road.

Someone called the police. And instead of helping him, officers jumped out of their vehicles with guns drawn while helicopters circled in the sky filming the entire incident. Terence Crutcher needed help. But instead, he got a bullet.

Will you sign and share this petition demanding District Attorney Steve Kunzweil indict and fully investigate Officer Betty Shelby, who shot and killed Terence Crutcher?

Indict Officer Betty Shelby for killing Terence Crutcher, an unarmed father of four, who posed no threat to her.

The people of Tulsa are counting on you to do the right thing and hold Tulsa police accountable. You must indict and fully investigate Officer Shelby for her role in the killing. Police are not above the law, and when someone kills someone, today's law states that they should be arrested—not at home on paid administrative leave.

Terence Crutcher died because he was Black. There's no other reason for someone to be killed by police when they are unarmed, walking slowly away with their hands up. He posed absolutely no threat, and yet the officers in the helicopter can be heard on video saying, "That looks like a bad dude, too. Probably on something."

To make matters worse, after Officer Betty Shelby killed him, Tulsa Police let Terence Crutcher bleed out on the street. He died in the hospital a few hours later.

This kind of continued disregard for Black life is enraging. Officer Betty Shelby killed someone. She should not be on administrative leave, sitting at home collecting a paycheck. Terence Crutcher's family and local activists in Tulsa are calling for Officer Shelby to be arrested and criminally charged.

Let's join them and make sure this officer is held accountable. Sign the petition.
