Media Lit Post #1
On September 16, 2016 Terence Crutcher was shot and killed by the law enforcement. He had his vehicle stalled in the middle of the road, officers showed up to the scene. The victim was agitated and uncooperative and disobeyed the officers commands to step away from his vehicle and put his hands up. At some point and time during this conflict the victim moved towards his car, a taser was deployed and shortly after the victim was shot and later died of his injuries. This situation didn’t call for lethal force against this man. He was unarmed and killed due to an officers lack of trigger discipline and training. Once the taser goes off she flinches and discharges. Once again due to our law enforcement another man is dead, this isn't okay and shouldn't become a regular thing to hear on the news.
The media is biased with Terence Crutcher and giving the officer that had shot him is getting negative publicity which is understandable because she had shot an innocent man.
