    An police chief in Ohio voiced his anger after the recent shooting of unarmed black man Terence Crutcher in Oklahoma, NBC News reported.

    Rodney Muterspaw took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon and wrote, “As an officer I am so sick and drained of some cops doing things like this. You are making us all look bad. STOP."

    The 26-year veteran of the Middletown, Ohio, police force told his local paper that he could not longer stay silent following the “questionable” shooting of Crutcher in Tulsa.

    These types of incidents, Muterspaw told his local newspaper, “set us back every time and it’s hard to get a grip on what we are trying to do.”
