Since 2005, 77 police officers have been charged with manslaughter or murder over an on-duty shooting. Only three of those officers were women.
Tulsa police officer Betty Jo Shelby is the most recent woman to face charges; she was accused of first-degree manslaughter Thursday after she fatally shot Terrence Crutcher.
