Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby was acquitted of manslaughter after fatally shooting an unarmed black man, Terrence Crutcher, back in September. It’s been less than a week since she’s been cleared, and she’ll reportedly return to work and receive back pay!
According to Tulsa spokeswoman Michelle Brooks, Shelby has been on unpaid leave since Sept. 22 and will be taking home about $35,000 in back pay.
If you remember #Roommates, Shelby said she shot Crutcher because she thought he was reaching in his car for a gun.
Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan said Shelby will not be working in a patrol capacity, so in other words… sis will be working at a desk.
