Tensing didn’t react to the crowd, but looked in shock as he was escorted by a Hamilton County Sheriff’s deputy from a back room to in front of Shanahan where he entered a not guilty plea to the charge of murder, and as well as a lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter.
At his arraignment on Thursday, Ray Tensing pleaded not guilty to killing Samuel DuBose.
Mathews says Tensing has felt “like he’s been run over by a train from the start of this case and it continues”. Tensing has been charged with murder and was fired.
Campus police departments have been around for more than 100 years, with Yale University being the first to have one. He also had earned a UC degree in criminal justice.
DuBose’s death comes amid months of national scrutiny of police dealings with African-Americans, especially those killed by officers.
But Deters dismissed Tensing’s claim that he was dragged and suggested he shouldn’t have pulled DuBose over to begin with.
Mr DuBose’s family has urged the community to remain calm.
There is new body cam video released from two of the other officers responding after Tensing shot and killed Samuel Dubose.
Furthermore, the body cameras of Kidd and Lindenschmidt-made public on Thursday-show just how quickly Tensing and his colleagues coalesced around a false narrative of how the incident occurred.
The revelation that officers Weibel and Kidd provided the corroboration for Tensing’s account of the incident was met with anger by Brinson’s family members, who told the Guardian on Thursday that if both officers had been disciplined correctly in 2010, the death of DuBose might have been avoided. “Fleeing felons, wanted fugitives, even terrorists have been caught because of traffic stops for minor vehicle code violations”. But there is no indication on the video of how he ended up on the ground.
If convicted, Tensing could go to prison for life, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said in a news conference.
Messages were left Friday at phone numbers for the officers, who are on administrative leave. No telephone listing for Kidd could be found.
That as the University of Findlay moves toward creating its own police department, staffed with certified peace officers who will have full police powers. “You don’t have to shoot him in the head”. “There are many different issues and federal guidelines that have to be followed that are very specific to campus policing”.
The union representing Ray Tensing says the university fired him this week without due process.
“I would put our officers up against any police officers in terms of training and professionalism”, said Miami University police chief John McCandless, noting other jurisdictions lean on his staff for help with forensic evidence and a bomb dog.
“I mean this is, in the vernacular, a pretty chicken crap stop”.
WCPO Demetrius Pace was involved in a heated exchange with ex-University of Cincinnati cop Ray Tensing last year during a traffic stop.
