Warning: This is graphic and disturbing video of a horrific police shooting in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Terence Crutcher was unarmed with his hands in the air walking away from police officers when they shot him.

He hadn't been pulled over, but his car had stalled on the highway when officers came upon him. What happened next is horrifying.

BBC:

Police footage shows Mr Crutcher walking away from officers, his hands in the air, before he is shot.

An officer is heard on a recording from a police helicopter calling him "a big dude" who was "probably on something".

"The big bad dude was my twin brother," his twin sister, Tiffany, told reporters.

"That big bad dude was a father. That big bad dude was a son. That big bad dude was enrolled at Tulsa Community College, just wanting to make us proud.

Already, the right wing is spinning up garbage about him dropping his arms before he was shot, but look at the video if you can stand to. Clearly he had his back to the officers, and was walking away from them.

This must stop. Crutcher's twin sister Tiffany is calling for peaceful protests over his murder.
