Al Sharpton Holds News Conference With Terence Crutcher Family


Protests continue Wednesday after the officer-involved shooting death of Terence Crutcher Friday night. Those calls to action are going beyond Oklahoma borders.

The Reverend Al Sharpton held a news conference with Crutcher’s parents and sister. They are calling for a National Day of Justice in Tulsa next Tuesday, September 27.

Sharpton said he will be in Tulsa for the event. He said nothing will be done “out of the spirit of what this family stands for.”

“We demand immediate justice,” he said at the news conference. “Justice delayed is justice denied.”

Both Crutcher’s father and sister, the Rev. Joey Crutcher and Dr. Tiffany Crutcher, spoke at the event as did attorneys representing the family. Leanna Crutcher, Terence’s mother, was also present.

Sharpton tweeted late Tuesday night “in meeting planning a National Day of Justice in Tulsa.” Sharpton says Crutcher’s father asked him to come to Tulsa to help the family get justice.

Crutcher’s father was interviewed on Sharpton’s radio show Tuesday night. Sharpton said he plans to release more information after more concrete plans are made.
