Ray Tensing, the University of Cincinnati police officer who shot Samuel DuBose during a traffic stop posted bail. Judge Megan Shanahan set his bond at $1 million. Hours later, Tensing’s father paid $100,085 and the murderer was set free.

Officer Ray Tensing’s original version of being dragged by DuBose was discredited by the officer’s body cam. Tensing spent his time in jail in on suicide watch. Which was essentially protective custody. Jail officials knew that had Tensing been placed in general population he would have been severely beaten, if not killed. Jail staff made rounds and documented Tensing’s behavior every ten minutes to ensure his safety. Seems like some of these procedures should have been followed during the incarceration of our black women this month. But hey, I guess they protect their own. We’ll keep you updated as this story progresses…

QUICK UPDATE:

According to RawStory, Cops and Tensing supporters from all over the country chipped in to raise the hundred grand. Ray Tensing’s attorney Stew Mathews said he has gotten numerous calls from people offering to pay the murderer’s bail.

Some people say they “don’t get it.” I say the writing is on the walls. They don’t care about us. Black lives don’t matter to “them”, the powers that be, and those associated with the powers that be. It’s a shame as I saw on my timeline the other day, “A dentist from Minnesota kills a lion and sparks an international outrage and black people are being murdered on the streets like it’s legal, and they say we’re crazy for posting ‘Black Lives Matter’.”

    What if that’s not the whole story. What if the unarmed man used his vehicle to harm the police officer

      Video has proven that was not the case. The officer lied.

      Ok was he found guilty in a court of law. Because we were not on scene of incident all we witnessed was what a camera saw.

      Ok, here we go. I just peeped your page. How many blacks, whites and Asians are convicted before Fox News and local newspapers put their story out there?

      All lives matter regardless of who they are. My page is compromised. You have a good argument. But he is out on bail. He is not convicted yet he gets a fair trail.

      You are right all lives matter, but it is the Black ones, male and female that are being murdered by law enforcement. I also read something else you said. Black people have a problem with black on black crime too. See, the difference is, when Ray Ray shoots Tyrone. Ray Ray get’s no bail and serves life. But when Officer Barnes murders Antwon. Officer Barnes gets administrative leave and support from his fellow officers and undercover racist organizations to cover his legal fees and bail. That’s what we’re pissed about.

      Oh, and the not guilty verdict that usually follows a year or two later.

      We’re not crazy, we see what’s going on. Tired of the government pissing in our faces while trying to convince us that’s it’s raining.

      I understand what your saying. All lives matter I see the incident different than looking at it from both sides. Because keep in mind I was not there so I want to hear all the evidence before I pass judge. Which in America everyone is subject to do process.

      Everyone in America is SUPPOSED to be subject to due process. But that’s not how it works. Black people and lower class whites have their due process rights violated on an everyday basis.

      It doesn’t take a jury and a trial to see this cop murdered that man. It don’t matter if he had an open container or none of that. He didn’t put that officer’s life in danger. Therefore he didn’t deserve to die. The officer violated Samuel DuBose’s due process by executing him right there on the spot.

      Nobody wants anyone to die. But if the officer felt threatened because the guy used The vehicle as a weapon to harm the officer.

      Naw, they released the unedited footage. He didn’t use the vehicle at all. When you see that car take off in the first released video, that was after he had been shot. The INVESTIGATORS said that the car shot forward as a result of DuBose’s leaning forward after he had been shot.

      See that’s why I want to view all evidence in a court preceding. So I can have all the facts.

      How did the cop think he was going to get ran over while he was standing on the side of the car? Not in front of the car, but the side of it.

    • Jbjb Rsrs

      I have no clue. I was not there. Also I see from your point of view it looks like an execution. Then again I want to see all the evidence In any situation. My reason have you ever watched judge dredd some one whore his gear to impersonate him as a guilty verdict.

  • Richarh Aswanu
    2 August 2015 at 6:48 pm

    No, I’ve never seen Judge Dredd.
