Video: Officer Indicted in Fatal Shooting of Drive

In what seems like a common occurrence, another black male was shot and killed by a police officer during a minor traffic stop. Samuel Dubose, the victim, was stopped by University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing for not having a front license plate. During the course of the stop, Mr. Dubose started the car. Tensing had his left hand in the car window and when the car started to roll, he reached for his gun and shot Mr. Dubose. Luckily, Officer Tensing was wearing a body camera and the entire incident was caught on tape. No law enforcement officer in Hamilton County had ever been indicted on murder charges while on duty. Officer Tensing will be the first. Incidents such as this have received more and more exposure in recent years. It begs the questions as to whether there has been a spike in these occurrences, or if they have just gone unreported. In any case, this is not the first, and will not be the last incident of an officer killing a man in what should have been a routine traffic stop.
