Ray Tensing, a University of Cincinnati police officer, was charged with murdering Samuel Dubose after body camera footage was reviewed by Investigators. It is good to finally see some justice from the “Justice System”.
Joe Deters, the local county prosecutor released the following statement, “The most asinine act I’ve ever seen a police officer make”, following up with, “Ray Tensing should never have been a police officer.”
Police released the Body Camera footage which prompted investigators to charge Tensing with Murder. When you watch this footage in slow motion, you will see that DuBose didn’t press the accelerator until AFTER being fatally shot in his head. The officer also put himself in jeopardy by reaching into the car and holding onto the steering wheel. When being dragged by his own arm, he shot Samuel DeBose claiming to have “feared for his life”. That is always the excuse that police use when they shoot an unarmed person to death.
Here are 3 different versions of Sam DuBose’s final moments. You analyze and decide for yourself what happened.
