|Mistrial in the trial of a dirty cop shooting Sam DuBose.|
Former University of Cincinnati cop Ray Tensing walks free again. The former cop who was accused of fatally shooting Samuel DuBuse after a traffic stop got another mistrial.
The jury couldn't decide on whether the cop acted improperly when he fired on an unarmed DuBose.
Once again the justice system fails Black America.
The jury deliberated for more than five days on charges of murder and voluntary manslaughter.
This fatal encounter happened two years ago in the Mt. Auburn neighborhood. The July 2015 incident brought attention to the city and the infamous unrest that happened in 2001.
The judge, Leslie Ghiz sent jurors back to deliberations on Friday and they still couldn't reach a unanimous verdict.
|Sam DuBose was the father of eight. He was killed by a dirty cop.|
The family of Sam DuBose said, "this is bullshit!"
"The family commends the prosecutors for their strong presentation in this case but we are outraged that a second jury has now failed to convict Ray Tensing for the murder of our beloved Sam DuBose. We demand another retrial. We call on the community to join us in peaceful protest of this unjust result."
The first trial was a mistrial as well.
Prosecutor Joe Deter said that the body camera evidence doesn't support Tensing's claim that he was threatened by DuBose.
Tensing shot DuBose at point blank range and the vehicle took off and later crashed. In the body camera footage, Tensing was trying to reach for DuBose and the car raved up. Tensing took less than a second and shot DuBose in the face.
Tensing was fired from the University of Cincinnati Police and immediately arrested.
Some people noted that Tensing wore a Confederate shirt while in uniform. Some also noted his previous encounters where he was disrespectful to Black motorists.
DuBose was pulled over for a taillight violation.
Often many people of color are stopped for some of the most pettiest offenses. Most officers will use a lame excuse to justify an unlawful search of your vehicle. Most often times they'll cite turn signal light, license plate light, failure to signal, and suspicious behavior in a public area.
This nonsense is got to stop.
BAD COPS ARE GOING TO GET GOOD COPS KILLED. FOR EVERY BAD COP, THERE WILL BE A DEAD COP.
GUN VIOLENCE IS THE NUMBER ONE THREAT IN THE UNITED STATES.
DONALD J. TRUMP, REPUBLICANS, DEMOCRATS AND THE AGITATORS IN THE JUNK FOOD MEDIA ARE TOO DUMB TO UNDERSTAND THAT IT'S GETTING HOT! AND SOON IT WILL BLOW UP AND THE COUNTRY WILL SEE VIOLENT REACTION.
EXPECT MORE MASS SHOOTINGS.
EXPECT MORE COPS SHOOTING UNARMED PEOPLE OF COLOR.
LEGALLY ARMED BLACK PEOPLE ARE TARGETS OF POLICE. EVEN DOING .
EXPECT COPS TO USE "I FEARED FOR MY LIFE" AS AN EXCUSE TO GET OFF MURDER!
