Sharpton said he came to Tulsa because the Crutcher family asked him to come.
“We didn’t come to start trouble; we came to stop trouble.”
He said the shooting of a man with his hands up has been the “only violence committed in this entire ordeal.”
“Not one window was broken. Not one brick was thrown.”

The jurors in Betty Shelby’s trial believed she acted according to her training when she fatally shot Terence Crutcher, but several believed she didn’t do all she could to mitigate the situation, which left the group unable to get “comfortable with the concept of Betty Shelby being blameless.”
The jury deliberated for just more than nine hours before reaching its decision. Several jurors were in tears as the judge read the not-guilty verdicts for the two theories of manslaughter — heat of passion and resisting criminal attempt — for which Shelby was charged.
