Murder charge for us policeman

University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing killed 43-year-old Samuel Dubose after pulling him over near the campus on 19 July.”He purposely killed him,” prosecutor Joe Deters said. “He should have never been a police officer.”The issue of excessive police force has sparked national debate and protests.

Video released on Wednesday appears to contradict Officer Tensing’s police report, which said he was “dragged” by DuBose’s car as he drove away and fired a shot, hitting him in the head.Mr Deters called it the “most asinine act” by a police officer he had ever seen.(BBC-2015)
