Yesterday, the Tulsa Police Department released a graphic video of the fatal shooting of Terence Crutcher, a 40-year-old African-American who was unarmed and was shot once at close range on Friday by a white officer.

It appeared he was moving backwards, with his hands up. Police say he was acting erratically. The U.S. Justice Department has opened a civil rights investigation.
