Again, we are forced to wrestle with a deeply saddening and enraging account of another black life taken from this world without care or recognition that he belonged to someone. Terence Crutcher was murdered in Tulsa, OK September 16th for seemingly nothing. Details thus far state that officers discovered an SUV disabled in the middle of the road with its doors open. Officers then encountered Terence Crutcher, who the officers claim did not comply with their demands and appeared to reach into the vehicle. This alleged action prompted deadly force by one officer and a taser engagement by the other.
