Dozens of protesters demanding that a white-colored ex-police officer be tried a 3rd time in the fatal shooting of the unarmed black vehicle drivers, people have collected at the University of Cincinnati to protest.
These protesters carried signs which said “Justice for Sam Dubose” Wed evening close to the university’s Nippert Stadium, where fans have been showing up for a soccer match up. The actual demonstrators in addition were distributing petitions seeking the retrial of Ray Tensing, AP documented.
A mistrial was declared two times in the murder as well as voluntary manslaughter case of Tensing.
He was a University of Cincinnati police officer when he shot DuBose during a 2015 traffic stop. Tensing says he fired in self-defense because he had been dragged by DuBose’s car.
Hamilton County’s district attorney says he’s going to broadcast whether to retry the case the week of July Ten.
