Officer Betty Jo Shelby of the Tulsa Police Department was aquitted in the death of Terrence Crutcher.  Was the case poorly prosecuted as one juror claims?  We saw poor prosecution in the Officer Michael Slager trial in regards to the April 4th, 2015 shooting of Walter Scott in North Charleston, South Carolina.  Though Slager took a plea deal on May 2, 2017 it still leaves one to wonder why justice in the courtroom remains elusive, regardless of the evidence.  Let's go to Fort Worth Texas where Former Deputy Chiefs Abdul Pridgen, 25 year veteran officer and Former Deputy Chief Vance Keyes, 17 year veteran officer, were both demoted to the rank of Captain  by Fort Worth Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald and given 3 daysoff without pay  with a strong recommendation that (Now) Captain Pridgen be further demoted to the rank of Sergeant. Their accused of leaking the body camera footage and personnel records of Officer William Martin.  Ya'll remember him?  He's the Fort Worth Police Officer that arrersted Jaquline Craig and her two teenage daughters  for,  if one looks at the video nothing more than  "P.O.P=Pissing Off Police".  Well in case your wondering if Officer Martin is still working, based on the Deputy Chiefs punishments.  Answer is "YEP", he got 10 days off and was made to take a class.  Were the punishments fair?  Lets talk about it this Saturday at 10:00 am (CST) on Behind The Blue Curtain
