VIDEO: Body Cam Video Of UC Officer Shooting Unarmed Suspect

A University of Cincinnati police officer has been indicted for murder, and after a long wait, the footage from his body camera has finally been released. The footage shows Officer Ray Tensing shooting unarmed motorist Sam DuBose in the head despite the fact that he was not being belligerent or aggressive.

The University of Cincinnati campus has been shut down, and city officials have called in Homeland Security and federal marshals as they prepare for unrest following the release of the body camera footage. Prosecutor Joe Deters says that the footage clearly shows that Tensing murdered DuBose.

The footage shows Tensing grabbing the outside door latch of DuBose’s car after DuBose failed to produce a driver’s license. Tensing orders DuBose to remove his seatbelt, to which DuBose responds, “I didn’t do nothing man.” After Tensing opens DuBose’s door a few inches, DuBose pulls it closed, and Tensing pulls his gun, shooting DuBose in the head through an open window.

Mirroring what many in the community feel, Deters refers to the shooting as “asinine” and “senseless.” Deters also says the he believes Tensing “lost his temper because Mr. DuBose would not get out of his car. He wasn’t dragged. When you see it, you will not believe how quickly he pulled his gun and shot him in the head.” Tensing had originally claimed he shot DuBose in self defense, but the body camera footage directly disputes that.

For the first time in the city’s history, an officer is facing a murder charge for a killing that occurred while on duty. Deters has directly said that DuBose did not have to die and that the traffic stop “was a chicken-s*** stop.” DuBose’s family has called for calm, asking citizens to not tarnish Sam’s memory by acting violently. The city has a history of unrest and rioting over police shooting unarmed citizens, and city officials are hoping to avoid the past repeating itself.

@ Ronsay and NAS, dont worry their attitudes will change, right now their still in the twi light zone of the matrix and synthetic freedom and by the way you will be needing that Big Mean Black dude named Jesus because He will bring an Army of Angelic forces to fight for us as it says in Luke 1: 68 and Revalations 19th chapter and Isaiah 66:15, because the powers that be have decided to get rid of us thats why your seeing the continual not stop murders by the police. Black Christ is not a man that He should lie, He IS our Angelic Force Ancestor and is as real as the blacks getting murdered by the cops, so if you never look at anything else please look at the references of scriptures i just gave you, because white America is simply suffering from fear of a BLACK PLANET EARTH which will be instituted by Black Jesus and white folks know that this is real, so they have entered a State of Desperation to get rid of our people, sleep on it if you like, but you have been shown, we cannot beat them, so how else do you think blacks will end up ruling the planet Earth next ??? Tell me, this should be interesting.

I agree Robert....something has got to give, and I'm not waiting for Jesus or Buddha to save shyt or Allah!! What gets me is I greet my brothers and sisters everyday with a hello, nod, peace brotha, how are you today my lady and get nothing but an attitude from my own ppl in these crazy as times at that...this is why their committing these murdereds, we are a scattered nation walking endlessly in blinding darkness.......and they know we won't do shyt!!!! It seems that my sista's only care about fake hair and weave and the weekend night at the club (not all but most) WSHH and by brothers chase money and fat ass leaving their sons and daughters to be raised by the young ass grandmothers with half of half of sense...did that make sense???
