Body Cam Video Released – Officer Ray Tensing Charged With Murder In Fatal Shooting of Sam Dubose

Note: This is a developing story and will be updated as information comes in.

Another murdering cop has been indicted for murder by a Grand Jury. Officer Ray Tensing has been indicted in the shooting death of Sam Dubose, an unarmed man, during an off-campus traffic stop.

University of Cincinnati Police officer, Ray Tinsing, observed Dubose driving near the Campus around 6:30 pm. After following him for a few blocks, Tinsing initiated a traffic stop for failure to display a front plate, and approached the vehicle. Officer Tinsing had told 911 dispatchers that he fired one shot, fatally striking Dubose in the head, because he was “almost run over” during the traffic stop. Tensing said in the incident report that he was “dragged” by the vehicle.

However, Joe Deters, the Hamilton County Prosecutor, said this murder was “Another asinine, senseless shooting.” Deters went on to say that Dubose “Didn’t deserve to be shot in the head” and that “he didn’t even deserve to be tased.”

The video released today contradicts Officer Tensing’s prior statements. As seen in the video, Dubose was asked to unbuckle his seat belt and step out of the vehicle. Dubose apparently moved his foot off the brake, which caused the car to move. Without hesitation, the officer drew his weapon and fired, striking Dubose in the head. He was not being dragged by the vehicle, nor was his life in danger.

Prosecutor Joe Deters had this to say:

“He didn’t do anything violent to the officer, he wasn’t dragging him, and he intentionally pulled out his gun and shot him in the head. He was making excuses for the purposeful killing of another person. I’m not saying he’s smart, that’s what I think he did. He lost his temper because Mr. Dubose wouldn’t get out of his car. When you see this you won’t believe how quickly he pulls his gun. Maybe a second – it’s incredible.”

Later, he also stated that “he purposely killed him. He should never have been a police officer. This is without question a murder.”

University of Cincinnati officials have canceled all classes in anticipation of protests.
