Cincinnati Cop Caught Killing on Camera

University of Cincinnati police officer Raymond Tensing, 25, faces 15 years to life in prison for the murder of Samuel Dubose on July 19. His body camera caught the entire traffic stop on film. When Tensing ordered Dubose out of the car, Dubose instead started the car and began pulling away. Tensing yelled “Stop!” and drew his gun, firing a single round into the back of Dubose’s head. Tensing later claimed he was being dragged by the car and he feared for his life. But Hamilton County prosecutor Joe Deters said, “He wasn’t dealing with someone who was wanted for murder. He was dealing with someone who didn’t have a front license plate. This was, in the vernacular, a pretty chicken-crap stop. … I’m treating him like a murderer.”

There are undoubtedly cops who make terrible errors in judgment and abuse their power. Tensing appears to fall in this category, and we’re glad he was wearing a body camera to prove it. That practice should become more common. The one caution we’d add is that even this video doesn’t tell the whole story. Dubose had a lengthy record, though nothing violent, and he was not acting aggressively in this case. More important, every time a white officer kills a black man, leftists attempt to paint the entire law enforcement community with the same racist brush. Finally, on any given day in the U.S., there are 40 murders committed, frequently black on black. Who can name one?
