Cop who killed Samuel DuBose during traffic stop has been indicted for murder

A grand jury indicted University of Cincinnati officer Ray Tensing on a murder charge for fatally shooting Samuel DuBose in the head during a traffic stop.

"This is the most asinine act I've ever seen. This does not happen in the United States," said Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters.

From the New York Daily News:

Tensing shot and killed Samuel DuBose on July 19 after the officer pulled him over near the university campus for a missing front license plate.

In a police report, Tensing said he was "dragged" by DuBose, forcing him to shoot.

But Deters said video from the stop showed no such thing: instead DuBose slowly pulled away from the stop, and Tensing "fell backward after he shot (DuBose) in the head," the prosecutor said.

Tensing "purposely killed" DuBose, Deters said, adding that the cop "should have never been a police officer."

The video of the shooting was released to the public just a few minutes ago.
