Tensing fired after DuBose started his car. Tensing stated that DuBose had begun to drive off and that he was being dragged because his arm was caught in the car.

Backgrounds[edit]
Samuel DuBose[edit]

Samuel "Sam" Vincent DuBose (March 12, 1972 – July 19, 2015), a 43-year-old black man, was a rapper, music producer,entrepreneur, and motorcycle enthusiast. He was the founder of a black motorcycle club, Ruthless Riders. He attended high school in Cincinnati and was the father of 13 children. DuBose served less than a year in a state prison on a 2005 marijuana trafficking charge.[1][2][3][4]
Raymond Tensing[edit]

Raymond Tensing (born November 13, 1989),[5] a white police officer who was 25 years old at the time of the shooting, had four years of law enforcement experience. He joined the University of Cincinnati Police Department (UCPD) in April 2014,[1] having previously been an officer with the department of Greenhills, Ohio.[6] He had left the Ohio State Highway Patrol's training academy after attending for just one day. According to a highway patrol spokesman, he was unable to adapt to the physical and mental requirements.[7]

Tensing graduated cum laude with a degree in criminal justice from University of Cincinnati Clermont College in 2012 and had a clean performance record.[8] He was involved in a fight in August 2010, a few weeks after he completed his training at the police academy. Tensing conducted an independent investigation of the incident, was described as being unhappy with the Cincinnati Police Department's handling of the case, and was noted for his aggressive attitude at the time. As a result of his investigation, the case against other combatants was dismissed.[9]
University of Cincinnati Police Department[edit]

The University of Cincinnati Police Department is certified by the state of Ohio and has full police authority throughout the state. They focus their patrols areas on three campuses and the areas around them.[10] UCPD officers receive 616 hours of training at the police academy, plus 80 of rookie training, while city police officers spend 1,040 hours in training.[7] Since the UCPD's patrol area was expanded to include neighboring areas in 2009, the number of reported crimes in those areas was cut in half by 2014.[7]Officers increased their traffic stops on- and off-campus, tripling the number from 2012 to 2015.[11] Of its 72 officers, 4 are African American and 1 is Asian American.[7] Unlike the Cincinnati Police Department (CPD), the UCPD was not included in federally mandated reforms following the nearby riots of 2001 that had been in reaction to a shooting of a young black man by city police.[12][7] One UCPD Chief resigned in 2013 amid reported low morale, and he was not replaced immediately.[7] Two other black men had been killed by UCPD officers, both with Tasers: a student in 2011 and a mental patient in 2010.[7]
Shooting[edit]

At 6:30 p.m., on Rice Street near Thill Street in the Mount Auburn district,[13] Tensing was patrolling off-campus when he stopped DuBose for failure to display a front license plate,[14] which is a primary offense for vehicles with Ohio license plates.[15][16] The incident was recorded on Tensing's bodycam, which he activated before the traffic stop.[14]

Bodycam 2 – Kidd
Bodycam 3 – Lindenschmidt


Seen in the bodycam video, Tensing repeatedly requests a driver's license and DuBose replies that he has a driver's license, then stating that he does not have it with him. Tensing asks, "Are you suspended?" Tensing starts to open the driver's door and orders DuBose to remove his seat belt. DuBose pulls the door closed, starts the engine, and puts the car in drive.[17] Within the next few seconds, Tensing reaches into the car with his left hand, yells "Stop! Stop!", draws his pistol with his right hand, and fires once striking DuBose. Sources differed as to whether the car was moving before the shot was fired. According to the § Kroll Report, "it is difficult to determine with precision how much, if at all, the car moved [prior to the gunshot], but whatever movement may have occurred appears to have been minimal."[17]

After firing, Tensing falls away from the vehicle which accelerates as he and two other officers run after it. After travelling about 400 feet (120 m), the vehicle collided into a telephone pole and came to a stop.[17] After the officers reach the car, the video shows DuBose inside with a gunshot wound to his head.[18][5][19] The county coroner's preliminary autopsy results, released on July 31, confirmed that as the cause of death.[20]

In bodycam footage, Tensing repeatedly tells other officers that he was dragged when his arm became caught in the car, possibly in the steering wheel.[21][18] In the police report that he filed after the incident, he stated that he was dragged, forcing him to fire his weapon. Through lawyers, he released a public statement that he was afraid that he would be run over.[14] On July 29, authorities released Tensing's bodycam video, which, according to prosecutors, shows that Tensing was not dragged.[18][22]

A day after the shooting, it was reported that DuBose was driving on an indefinitely suspended driver's license, and had marijuana and about $2,600 cash in the car.[14][23]
Investigation and police reports[edit]

UCPD officers Phillip Kidd and David Lindenschmidt arrived at the scene just after the gunshot, and their bodycam footage shows Tensing getting up off the pavement. In his bodycam video, Kidd is heard supporting Tensing's statement that he was dragged by the car. According to County Prosecutor Joe Deters, neither officer stated in his official statement to Cincinnati police that he saw Tensing being dragged.[24] Officer-in-Training Lindenschmidt, who had started working in the field only that month, made what have been called "rookie mistakes" in picking up Tensing's fallen flashlight and moving Tensing's vehicle.[17]

Eric Weibel, a UCPD officer who did not witness the shooting, stated in a report that Tensing's uniform looked like he had been dragged.[25]

The CPD took over the investigation soon after they were called to the scene.
Aftermath[edit]
Official reactions[edit]

On July 29, Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney Joe Deters stated in a press conference that the shooting was "asinine" and "senseless". He said that DuBose was not acting violently or aggressively.[26] With "an abundance of caution in anticipation" of Deters' announcement, the University of Cincinnati closed its Uptown and Medical campuses at 11:00 a.m. The campuses resumed normal operations the next day.[27]

On July 31, the Fraternal Order of Police–Ohio Labor Council, a union that represents UCPD employees, filed a grievance asking that Tensing be reinstated to his position on the police force, asserting that he was terminated "without just cause".[28][29]Resolution of the grievance is postponed pending the outcome of the criminal case.[30]

In the wake of the shooting, Deters called for the disbandment of the UCPD force and its replacement with city police officers. The incident also drew attention to the presence of armed law enforcement on college campuses.[31] There was some public and academic criticism of Deters' comments, on the basis that his rhetoric would jeopardize Tensing's right to a fair trial and that they were anti-police.[32]

The Chief of the CPD said that the agreement, signed in 2009 by his predecessor, which allowed UCPD to patrol areas neighboring the university, should be revoked.[7] He said, "I don’t believe their officers have the skill set to police Cincinnati with the same philosophy of fairness and cultural competency that my officers display."[7]
Public reactions[edit]

The body camera recording of Tensing shooting DuBose has garnered considerable attention. The footage has been compared to a first-person-shooter video game[33] and described as so "disturbing" that Cincinnati police prepared for large protests and riots before the footage's release.[34]

As of July 30, at least four demonstrations have been held around the country in response to DuBose's death.[35] A Black Lives Matter vigil and rally in support of DuBose was held in Cincinnati on July 31, the third such event since the shooting. The victim's mother said, "As long as we stand up for the righteous, we going to be OK. I would come out here every night, I will go city to city because now I'm involved, my child was involved." Participants chanted "I am Sam DuBose."[36] Around 300 participants subsequently walked through Over-the-Rhine to Fountain Square. Six people were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest during the march.[37] One hundred protesters joined a "United March for Justice" on September 19, linking DuBose's killing with the deaths of Tamir Rice, John Crawford, and Samantha Ramsey.[38]
Kroll Report[edit]

A report, commonly called the "Kroll Report", released in September 2015 by Kroll Inc., a risk consulting firm hired by the university, said that Tensing's bodycam video showed that he was not dragged. It also said that the car had not moved, or had barely moved, before the gunshot was fired. It faulted both men for unnecessarily escalating the situation, DuBose by failing to comply with Tensing's command to get out of the car and starting the engine. The report offered no opinion as to Tensing's guilt or innocence in the criminal case. Tensing's attorney said, "I don't agree with their analysis or their conclusions."[39][40] The report's recommendations include reviewing the scope of the UCPD's jurisdiction, improving relevant training and policies, clarifying reporting requirements following officer-involved shootings, providing cultural diversity training, and assessing the diversity of officers within the UCPD.[17]
University reactions[edit]

Following the shooting the UCPD stopped making off-campus traffic stops.[41]

On October 16, a student group, named "Irate 8" for the eight percent of black students at University of Cincinnati campuses, presented a list of demands to the university president. The list includes taking officers Kidd and Lindenschmidt off patrol, conducting full background checks of police and other university employees, and mandating racial sensitivity training for all staff and students. President Santa J. Ono agreed to meet with them and discuss their demands.[42][43][44]
Legal proceedings[edit]

Kidd and Lindenschmidt were not indicted by the grand jury. "These officers have been truthful and honest about what happened and no charges are warranted," Deters said. Kidd and Lindenschmidt were placed on administrative leave during a university investigation.[24][45]

On July 29, Tensing was indicted on charges of murder and voluntary manslaughter. The murder charge carries a penalty of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole for 15 years.[46] As a result of the indictment, he was fired from the UCPD. At hisJuly 30 arraignment, he pleaded not guilty to the charges, and he was released on $1 million bond later that day.[47][5] A trial is scheduled to begin on October 24, 2016.[48]

Stew Mathews, Tensing's attorney, said that Tensing was being dragged by the car, and that the officer fired in self-defense while fearing for his life. Mathews said that video from Lindenschmidt's bodycam helped substantiate that claim.[49][50]

In January 2016, following two days of mediation with civil rights attorney Al Gerhardstein, the University of Cincinnati agreed to pay $4.85 million to the DuBose family. In addition to financial compensation, the settlement included free undergraduate education for DuBose's children, the creation of a memorial in his name, an apology from the school's president, and engagement by the family in police reform at the university.[51] It also protected all potential defendants from any future civil litigation in DuBose's death.[48]

    Jul 31, 2015 · Video embedded · Former University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing pleads not guilty to murder and voluntary manslaughter charges in the death of Samuel DuBose. Former University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of murder and voluntary manslaughter in the July 19 shooting death of Samuel DuBose.

    At the arraignment, the judge set Tensing's bond at $1 million.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters announced the charges at a news conference this week.
"I've been doing this for over 30 years. This is the most asinine act I've ever seen a police officer make -- totally unwarranted," he said. "It's an absolute tragedy in the year 2015 that anyone would behave in this manner. It was senseless."
Deters played body camera footage of the traffic stop shooting that appeared to contradict Tensing's version of what happened.
The prosecutor, who said he was shocked when he first saw the video, was adamant that DuBose, who is black, had not acted aggressively toward Tensing, who is white.
