Why Are White Evangelical Christians Silent About Police Violence???
Reader Terence Crutcher was a 40-year-old pastor shot and killed by Tulsa officer Betty Shelby. I don’t even have words… On this past Friday night, Terence Crutcher died at a hospital after being shot by the police. He was unarmed and had his hands up. The police murdered him in cold blood.
I heard a white preacher preach recently, that he recounted having been stopped by the police with a weapon in his glove compartment. He talked about how jovial the officer was, how they laughed together, how he even wanted to invite the officer to dinner. He said something to the effect of these young men need to comply with the police in order to save their own lives.
This INNOCENT pastor and father of four children whose vehicle broke down in the middle of the streets, honestly thought he could seek help from police officers.... that maybe the police would park behind his vehicle with their lights flashing to avoid any accident.... BUT the pastor would never imagined that the police officers would be his executioners... instead of #SERVE and #PROTECT him, they mercilessly gunned him down and murdered him in the middle of the street.
