Reaction to Tensing mistrial

The protest had grown after members of a rally opposing Donald Trump's election joined it.

In emotional testimony on Tuesday, Tensing said he had no intention of killing DuBose when he fired into the auto. Tensing was later fired.

Eight out of the 12 jurors wanted to convict Tensing on voluntary manslaughter charges, while three wanted a murder conviction.

Protesters gathered outside Cincinnati's Fountain Square, demanding a retrial of former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing, who shot unarmed Sam DuBose during a traffic stop, reports WKYC. He said Tensing was hung up in DuBose's Honda Accord and "thrown violently" DuBowe took off and turned left into Tensing when Tensing shot him: "I would be in fear of my life if I was in the situation". The judge found the jurors in the case hopelessly deadlocked. She applauded the demonstrators for remaining peaceful. Many faith leaders in the Cincinnati area said they hope those grieving can find peace inside of church walls.

After an emotional several weeks, 9 On Your Side's Tanya O'Rourke had a one-on-one interview with Deters just an hour after Judge Megan Shanahan decided the trial would end in a mistrial. Police authorities said that DuBose drove for around a mile before pulling over, and when asked to show the officer his license was unable to do so.

Attorney Al Gerhardstein, who represents the DuBose family, said they want another trial and can't understand why the jury couldn't reach a conclusion.

"It's obvious to me you have made a honest and conscientious effort", the judge said before setting a new hearing date for November 28 to determine whether the case will re-tried.

An Ohio prosecutor says jurors were leaning toward convicting a white former police officer on a lesser charge but couldn't agree in the case involving the fatal traffic stop shooting of an unarmed black motorist.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters expressed disappointment with the verdict, but said he believed the jurors did what they could.

Ray Tensing, the 26-year-old University of Cincinnati officer on trial, fatally shot the 43-year-old DuBose in the head on July 19, 2015.

An Ohio judge declared a mistrial on Saturday, finding jurors hopelessly deadlocked in the case of a white former University of Cincinnati police officer charged with murder in the shooting death of a black motorist during a traffic stop previous year.

The jury had deliberated some 25 hours after getting the case Wednesday.

"Police officers are our last line of defense between the good guys and the bad guys", he said in his closing statement, adding that Tensing didn't go to work that day intending to kill.
