Family of Man Killed by Ohio Cop Calls For Peace



    Black Man Samuel Dubose Shot in Head by Cincinnati Cop Ray Tensing

    The family of Samuel DuBose, the Cincinnati man shot and killed during a traffic stop, is calling for peace following the release of the body camera video that captured the moment when DuBose was killed. 

    DuBose family attorney Mark O'Mara called for a "peaceful and nonaggressive" response from the community after University of Cincinnati police Officer Ray Tensing was indicted on murder charges.  

    The white University of Cincinnati police officer who shot the unarmed black man during a traffic stop has been indicted on murder charges, a prosecutor announced Wednesday, saying the cop "purposely" killed the motorist and "should never have been a police officer," according to NBC News.

    In announcing the murder charge against officer Ray Tensing, Hamilton County prosecutor Joe Deters lambasted the cop over the death of Dubose, 43, saying the fatal shooting was "the most asinine act I've ever seen a police officer make."

    Dubose was pulled over July 19 for having a missing front license plate.
