Ex-Ohio Police Officer's Trial in Fatal Shooting Ends in Mistrial

Ex-Ohio Police Officer's Trial in Fatal Shooting Ends in Mistrial

With small exceptions, including one conspicuous adjustment to Tensing's story - that DuBose had pinned his arm inside the auto and then accelerated, forcing him to shoot to protect himself - the retrial called the same experts, told the same stories and made the same arguments as the first.

The men had a conversation for about one minute and 50 seconds before it escalated with Tensing and DuBose in a struggle.

"The family sincerely thanks the community for all of their support during these hard times".

This is the second time a jury has been unable to determine whether Tensing was guilty of murder or voluntary manslaughter over the July 2015 death of Sam DuBose.

A jury last week acquitted a Minnesota officer who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop.

WEINGARTNER: There was certainly a lot of attention here in Cincinnati and we presume around the country as well, a lot of people, you know, wondering what might happen because, again, it was the second time and the same charges and no new evidence - all the same evidence as in the first trial. Tensing and his family left quickly without comment. Mathews did tell a local television station Ray Tensing and his family are disappointed and would like resolution.

There were more than a dozen demonstrators outside the courthouse with rain coming down Friday afternoon, some chanting: "Black lives matter!" We can not allow this in our country. "These are arbitrary and subjective decisions".

The NAACP of Cincinnati blasted the hung jury result and said it will demand justice. Officers in the United States shoot and kill almost 1,000 people per year.

On Tuesday, hundreds of activists and mourners gathered in Seattle to protest the police killing of Charleena Lyles, a 30-year-old African American woman, who was pregnant at the time of her death. On the stand last week, he said he "misperceived" that his arm was caught.

People of colour make up around 67 percent of the 2.2 million people in U.S. prisons and jails.

Cranley debunked claims that some downtown business were closing amid concerns over demonstrations.

The mayor says the rights of free speech of all people will be supported, including the right to peacefully demonstrate. "We have no reason to believe it would not be".

Tensing has five years' experience in law enforcement and worked for the University of Cincinnati Police Department for more than a year.

"We're definitely not happy with the outcome of the trial, however we feel it is time for the community to bond together in love", Mingo said.

The Rev. Peterson Mingo, an activist and friend of the DuBose family, escorted the victim's mother, Audrey, and his brother, Aubrey, to a waiting vehicle. Majority-white juries have decided all but two of those 19 verdicts.

The jury in Tensing's first trial consisted of 10 whites and two blacks.

Jurors range in occupations from healthcare professionals, information technology, and sales, to a nanny, and a PhD who does animal research.

University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing was indicted Wednesday on a murder charge for shooting motorist Samuel Dubose during a traffic stop this month.

Tensing pulled over DuBose because of an allegedly missing front plate.

But prosecutors argued Tensing was not being dragged by the auto when he fired his weapon.

Video from the DuBose's shooting from Tensing's body camera was revealed the day of the traffic incident. The first trial in 2016 ended in mistrial after the jury failed to reach a unanimous verdict.

On Friday, a grand jury in OR declined to indict a police officer who killed a 24-year-old man, who was allegedly armed with a knife. Prosecutors, though, have argued that Tensing had not been in serious danger and that the use of deadly force was unnecessary.

Defense witness Scott Roder does forensic animations and recreations.
