Target: Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters

Goal: Charge the cops who lied to cover up the fact that University of Cincinnati Officer Raymond Tensing shot and murdered unarmed Sam Debose over a missing license plate.

A University of Cincinnati police officer named Ray Tensing was charged recently for murdering Sam DuBose, 43, an unarmed black driver that Tensing pulled over for a missing license plate. Other cops were involved who tried to help Tensing in covering up what really happened, and they must be charged for their part in this tragedy.

Tensing claimed that during the traffic stop, Dubose attempted to drag Tensing with his car and kill him, so Tensing pulled his gun and shot Dubose. However, footage released from Tensing’s body cam completely discredited his story. Officer Eric Weibel responded to the scene after the shooting and submitted a narrative that backed up Tensing’s lies.

Officer Phillip Kidd also supported Tensing’s lies, giving a straight up false first account of what happened. Weibel wrote in his submitted narrative that, “Officer Kidd told me that he witnessed the Honda Accord drag Officer Tensing, and that he witnessed Officer Tensing fire a single shot.”

University of Cincinnati police chief Jason Goodrich claimed that when Tensing asked Dubose for his license, Dubose ignored his request and instead pulled out a bottle of alcohol. However, the body cam footage shows that Dubose did indeed give answers about his license and handed over the bottle when directly asked by Tensing.

The fact that not only did Tensing try to lie about murdering an innocent man, but multiple other officers sworn to serve and protect lied on top of that, is so incredibly sickening. It’s hard to believe this is the world we live in. But we cannot let it be this way. Demand that the cops who lied in order to help back up Tensing’s false account of murder are also charged under the full force of the law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prosecutor Joe Deters,

A University of Cincinnati police officer named Ray Tensing was charged recently for murdering Sam DuBose, 43, an unarmed black driver that Tensing pulled over for a missing license plate. Other cops were involved who tried to help Tensing in covering up what really happened, and they must be charged for their part in this tragedy.

Officer Eric Weibel, officer Phillip Kidd, University of Cincinnati police chief Jason Goodrich all lied in order to help cover up what Tensing really did to murder Sam Dubose. We absolutely cannot let them get away with this. I urge you to charge the cops who lied in order to help back up Tensing’s false account of the murder of Sam Dubose.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
