Tulsa Cop Betty Shelby Resigns After Acquittal in Shooting Death of Terence Crutcher

The Tulsa cop found not guilty in the shooting death of an unarmed black man is stepping down from the local police force, saying that she couldn't bear to be put on administrative duty.

"Since being reinstated, I have found that sitting behind a desk, isolated from all my fellow officers and the citizens of Tulsa, is just not for me," Betty Shelby said in a statement released by her union, the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 93. 

Shelby's lawyer, Shannon McMurray, confirmed her resignation to The Associated Press.
