Tulsa Police Officer Betty Shelby was acquitted by a jury of nine Caucasians and three African-Americans of the charged murder of Terence Crutcher on May 17. The Left Stream Media and Black Lives Matter did their best to convict Officer Shelby to get her convicted in the jury of public opinion.

The salient point is that Crutcher was acting erratic as if on drugs which an autopsy confirmed to be PCP.
Is PCP dangerous? Check out what Narconon says:
Effects of PCP Abuse
PCP is a synthetic drug that has some of the most violent, dangerous effects of any of today’s drugs of abuse. Like K2 (Spice) and bath salts, PCP abuse can result in dangerous hallucinations coupled with aggressive behavior. Its original use was as an anesthetic so it deadens pain as well. It may also give the user a feeling of invulnerability.
When you add these characteristics together, the result can be a drug experience that is dangerous to others who are nearby dangerous, such as law enforcement or hospital personnel who need to handle the person, The effects can also be dangerous or deadly to the drug user himself. PCP users have been observed mutilating themselves and assaulting others without any regard for injury to themselves. One police video shows a man high on PCP running at the police cruiser and throwing his entire body across the hood and into the windshield.
When police officers share stories about the effects of PCP on people they have been trying to subdue, these stories often contain incidents that confirm the following effects of PCP:
- The drugged person lacks any rational judgment
- He (or she) feels no pain
- He thinks of himself as invulnerable
- He is often aggressive
- He is willing to harm himself or others
Short-Term Effects of PCP Abuse
A person who is high on PCP may breathe shallowly, sweat excessively, be flushed and have numb extremities. He (or she) may move with poor coordination, be nauseated and vomit. His eyes may flicker up and down or he may stare fixedly at nothing. These physical effects are in addition to the delusions and other mental effects.
Long-Term Effects of PCP Abuse
If a person abuses this drug over a long period of time, the effects can be disabling. A person who abuses this drug long-term is very likely to have memory loss, difficulty speaking and thinking clearly. They are likely to be … READ ENTIRETY (Effects of PCP Abuse; Narconon)
Was Officer Betty Shelby a perfect policewoman? I actually don’t know her police record of commendations and/or disciplinarian actions. But I do know she was an Officer for twelve-years. I must assume that Police Officers in a metropolitan area are quite aware of the symptoms of a PCP user or addict.
When a person is suspected to have the symptoms of PCP abuse it is better for a Police Officer to err on the side of personal safety and public safety when confronted by a PCP user.
After Terence Crutcher refused to respond to the orders of several Officers directions lethal force is certainly an option. When Leftists like Black Lives Matter (SEE Also HERE) support African-Americans above the rule of law it is a public indictment on their support for counter-constitutional anarchy over the rule of law designed to protect the public.
As it turns out, even with the acquittal Betty Shelby will have to deal with the stigma developed publicly by Left MSM and BLT. She is going to be the recipient of hate-threats more than likely for quite some time. AND worse, Officer Shelby is stuck with the legal bills to fight for her innocence. Below is an email with an appeal to donate to her legal defense fund to offset some of the financial burden to a trial that mainly occurred to satisfy the Leftist bloodlust of the Leftist MSM and BLT.

We are very pleased to share with you that our hard work and your generous support has paid off!
After months of being demonized by the media, being found guilty in the court of public opinion, and being railed against by Black Lives Matter and Al Sharpton… justice has finally prevailed for one of our Officers…
Last week, a jury acquitted Tulsa, Oklahoma Officer Betty Shelby of the charge of manslaughter that had been brought against her after she acted in accordance with her training to defend her life.
And while the situation was a tragic one on all sides, we are very happy that truth prevailed and that Officer Shelby can now begin to put her life back together.
However, for us the work is not over.
Officer Shelby’s legal defense has cost hundreds of thousands of dollars — and we here at the NCPD are still working to help her pay off all of the expenses that she incurred during the trial.
Sadly — just like other officers who have been put on trial for doing their jobs — Officer Shelby’s life will never be the same.
Even though she was acquitted of the charges against her, she can continue to expect harassment and even threats against her and her family for the rest of her life.
Such is the world we live in where criminals are made the heroes and law enforcement officers, who make incomprehensible sacrifices to keep us safe, are made the villains.
We owe it to these officers to stand by them in their times of need — and Officer Betty Shelby needs you now.
It is impossible for her to pay off her legal defense and personal security bills on her peace officer salary… which is where you come in…
It was with your generous support that we were able to help Officer Shelby win her trial, and we need to ask you to step up one last time.
We’re extremely grateful for your generosity, and hope we can count on you to come through for us one more time.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Officer Shelby Acquittal a Slap to Leftist Bloodlust

OFFICER BETTY SHELBY ACQUITTED!
Our world is changing at a rapid pace, a pace that is accelerating on a daily basis. The result of this exaggerated pace has caused us to become desensitized to violence, gore, all forms of abuse and even death. Therefore, we are developing an extreme malevolence toward life as we once knew it. Every day the press bombards us with horror, beheadings, crucifixions, child dismemberments, rapes, and other heinous acts of cruelty.
Our only defense against these abuses in our home towns are the Police (law enforcement officers), local, State, and Federal, who are out there 24/7 doing their job to Protect and Serve. Yes, law enforcement is the first line of defense helping to keep the bad guys at bay. I heard a quote recently from a disenfranchised cop, at a police gathering, speaking to clergy, “Where is God when all these horrors occur, he’s not ever there, and that’s why I don’t believe.” The Clergyman retorted, “Do you see all these men and women here who put their lives on the line every day for people they don’t know, that’s where God is, in their hearts, they are his messengers, even if they don’t know it, they are God and God is them.” Cops don’t do the job for high pay, recognition, or glory, they do if because something inside drives them to want to help their communities.
In today’s society when a police officer receives a call, he knows, he is no longer respected by the community or by the system that he swore an oath to protect and serve. These are not his friends and neighbors. Those he endeavors to help may be waiting in ambush for him. He is just a pawn in the game and continually at the mercy of the government. He knows each and every day when he leaves home that there is someone out there who wants to kill him, just because he wears a badge. When he puts that badge on he becomes a target, a target for groups that have sworn to assassinate Police Officers, and also a target for the system that he has sworn an oath to protect and serve.
Law Enforcement is viewed as an extension of the Executive Branch of Government. It becomes very difficult to do your job when the Executive of that Branch doesn’t acknowledge that your life is worth as much as the street thug who tries to kill you with your own weapon.
The National Center for Police Defense, Inc. (NCPD), is dedicated to helping law enforcement officers in their time of need. Helping with the legal process when they do their job and are rewarded with a grand jury hearing that could lead to a possible indictment, or are severely injured and out on sick leave and need financial or legal assistance until they are back on their feet. NCPD isn’t only about legal defense for Law Enforcement. NCPD is about help! “NCPD is the only organization that helps protect you from the system that you protect and serve, at … READ THE REST
