The disturbing video of 40-year-old Terrence Crutcher shows him in the middle of a highway walking with his hands up toward his vehicle. At some point Crutcher was hit by a taser, while his hands were up in the air. He was then shot to the ground where he lay in his own pool of blood.
According to the footage, one of the officers said Crutcher “looks like a bad dude” but it is unclear how he came to that conclusion when the unarmed 40-year-old was complying with police. Law enforcement was initially called because they received a report of an abandoned car, which was the victim’s car that had stopped working according to NY Daily News.
Reported on NY Daily News Police Chief Chuck Jordan said at a press conference Monday afternoon. “I want to assure our community and I want to assure all of you and people across the nation watching this: We will achieve justice.”
