“This is the most asinine act I’ve ever seen a police officer make; totally unwarranted.” Agreed, totally! How in the world did this person ever make it onto any level of police force? After watching all of this day’s news clips, and reading the online information, I still am reeling behind what I find to be a tragedy that deserves further protest!
It was earlier this month when Mr. Samuel Dubose, 43, was driving on an afternoon, presumably around The University of Cincinnati. Dubose was NOT speeding, as clearly seen in the video, which is now visible, worldwide. Yet, for whatever reason, he was pulled over by University of Cincinnati police officers, and he was approached by Officer Ray Tensing.
Officer Tensing proceeded to question Dubose, asking him where he was heading, and for his license. When Dubose was unable to produce a license, Tensing asked additional questions, including whether or not Dubose had been drinking. Dubose responded no, yet the situation suddenly escalated, with Officer Tensing raising his voice, brandishing his weapon, and demanding that Samuel Dubose get out of the car!
It seemed that before Dubose could even exit his vehicle, he was bombarded with a barrage of bullets! Officer Tensing fired upon him multiple times for what appeared to be NO REASON, as Dubose produced NO WEAPON of his own, had not used any foul language, and had not even attempted to escape the scene! Samuel Dubose, before he knew what was happening, was gunned down, MURDERED, by OFFICER RAY TENSING, for reasons as yet to be produced!
All of this now is being taken to courts in Ohio, the Cincinnati area. C.N.N., and all of the major news networks will be covering this story to follow through with what happens to Officer Tensing, as well as with the family of Samuel Dubose. Yet, this is only another underscoring of where racial relations really rest within our “great” nation. Indeed, no one is denying that leaps and bounds have been made over the last two centuries, yet mindsets still refuse to erase some of the seemingly savory, yet altogether stagnant ways of the past!
