Tulsa braces for protests after officer acquitted for killing unarmed man

Tulsa braces for protests after officer acquitted for killing unarmed manPolice in Tulsa, Oklahoma, were preparing for protests on Thursday after a white officer was acquitted by a jury of killing an unarmed black man in a case that stirred tensions over racial bias in policing. Officer Betty Shelby, 43, who is white, was found not guilty by a jury on Wednesday night on a charge of manslaughter after a week-long trial for fatally shooting Terence Crutcher, an African-American, in September 2016 after his car was blocking a road. Shelby has insisted her actions were driven entirely by the behavior of the man she shot.
