Judge declares mistrial in Ray Tensing murder trial

"I, like so many others, share in the disappointment in the outcome from today's jury", Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac said at a news briefing.

After the first mistrial in Tensing's case, protesters chose to take their march across the city of Cincinnati. Tensing pulled his weapon and fired to avoid, he said, being dragged under DuBose's vehicle.

Halli Greene was also among Black Lives Matter Cincinnati members outside the courthouse.

Tensing asks DuBose to unbuckle his seat belt, and the officer pulls on the door handle.

Tensing said that, during the stop, his arm had become caught in the vehicle and that DuBose had begun to drive away.

She declared a mistrial after they came back deadlocked for the second time.

Another mistrial was declared today for a former OH police officer who went on trial twice in connection with a deadly traffic stop shooting two years ago.

It now covers about 70 million people, including children and able-bodied adults mostly served by private managed care plans. Conference of Mayors in Miami Beach, Mayor Bill de Blasio called for a bipartisan effort to stop the healthcare legislation.

This is the second time a jury has been unable to determine whether Tensing was guilty of murder or voluntary manslaughter over the July 2015 death of Sam DuBose.

She called on the Cincinnati community to join them in "peaceful protest" of what she called an "unjust result".

According to the video, DuBose tells the officer that he is going to go home, "right around the corner".

Hours later, the nine white and three black jurors said they still could not overcome their divisions after five days deliberations, prompting Ghiz to declare a mistrial.

The Cincinnati officer killed Sam DuBose, 43, after pulling him over on 19 July 2015.

Prosecutors said repeatedly the evidence contradicted Tensing's story.

Much of the testimony and witnesses were the same in the second trial as in the first.

Gingrich Hopes Pelosi Stays Around 'For 10 More Years'
Nancy Pelosi's liberal agenda put America 20 trillion in debt, and Jon Ossoff is on her side. By the next election, Democrats lost seats left and right, falling to 193 seats.

While criminal charges against police officers in seemingly unjustified on-duty killings have become more common in recent years, it remains rare for prosecutors to even bring such cases. Earlier Friday, Ghiz instructed the jury to return to deliberations after they informed her of the impasse. The graphic footage shows the two had a brief struggle before Tensing fired his gun.

After resting its case, the prosecution requested the judge add a lesser count of reckless homicide for the jury to consider.

To convict Tensing of murder, jurors had to find he purposely killed DuBose.

Tensing's trial was the third to reach a conclusion over the past week.

His first trial in November ended the same way - a hung jury and a mistrial.

"The message that is being sent is, if you are black, all the police officer has to do is say they were in fear of their life and they get away with murder because the victim (is) black", the local NAACP said in a statement. The question wasn't made public. Prosecutors, though, have argued that Tensing had not been in serious danger and that the use of deadly force was unnecessary.
