A pretty girl, out of her league, out of her element, believing herself to be the same as a man when she dons her super-hero costume, shot and killed a man without cause. Well, any rational man would see it as being without cause. But a policeman would see intent to kill in the suspect's actions.
Now Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby will be prosecuted for Manslaughter. Will she be convicted? Probably not. It doesn't matter. This case does not change doctrine.
She repeatedly commanded, "You shall kneel before me!" He didn't kneel! He walked away with his hands in the air! Oh, the unmitigated gall!
"An affidavit filed Thursday says Shelby told police homicide investigators that "she was in fear for her life and thought Mr. Crutcher was going to kill her."
Do you see? When dealing with policemen ANY action other than grovel and whimper WILL be interpreted as an OFFENSIVE act.
Suspect didn't get on his knees and beg forgiveness for his existence = "He was trying to kill me".
This is DOCTRINE.
Yep, the Land of the Free.
