Teacher's Viral FB Post Reveals The Tulsa Shooting Victims Everyone's Ignoring


It was confirmed on Thursday that Betty Shelby, the Tulsa police officer who fatally shot Terence Crutcher, is being charged with manslaughter.

Although justice will hopefully be served for Crutcher and his family, a bleak feeling of sadness, confusion and anger still hangs heavily over the town -- especially at Kipp Tulsa College Preparatory School, where Crutcher's daughter attends.

After the fatal shooting, staff members at the Tulsa school felt the need to put a brief pause on the academics and create an environment where students could process the tragedy that occurred in their own backyard.

Rebecca Lee, a teacher at the Tulsa school, organized the students into three groups to discuss the catastrophe: a group of fifth graders, sixth graders and seventh/ eighth graders.

According to Daily Mail, she said,

Their thoughts and feelings were so impactful that Lee decided to share a post on Facebook where she discussed how each group reacted, and its already gotten over 130,000 shares.

Get your tissues out -- you're going to need 'em.

To begin the post, she says,

She then goes into detail about how each grade reacted, and how they tearfully questioned why their schoolmate was left without a father.

In an except from the post that describes the fifth graders' innocent reaction, she wrote,

Lee describes the sixth graders as "red-eyed or withdrawn."

These students are Crutcher's daughter's classmates. She described the haunting scene by writing,

The discussion got heavier and heavier, as the seventh and eight graders grew angry about the killing. Lee wrote "one [student] says she feels like punching someone in the nose."

The anger and confusion among the students at Tulsa won't go away any time soon, but they're lucky to have a teacher like Rebecca Lee in their lives. She ended the post with love by saying,

Love hard, everyone.
