This isht is getting ridiculous.

University Of Cincinnati Cop Shoots, Kills Unarmed Black Man After Routine Traffic Stop

Police say the officer fired one shot as the man sped away.

An unarmed black man was shot and killed on Sunday by a white police officer after he was pulled over for a missing front license plate.

Samuel Dubose, 43, was stopped by University of Cincinnati officer Ray Tensing on Sunday evening, according to CNN. Tensing repeatedly asked Dubose for his driver’s license, but according to the Cincinnati Police Department, he refused and instead handed the officer a bottle of alcohol.

Then Tensing asked Dubose to get out of his car, which he also refused to do, according to police.

“There was a struggle at the door with Mr. Dubose in the vehicle and the officer outside the vehicle, and the vehicle sped away,” Cincinnati police Lt. Col. James Whalen told reporters, according to CNN.

Tensing fired one shot at the fleeing car, killing Dubose.

The Cincinnati Police Department, which is investigating the shooting, said that Dubose did not appear to have a weapon. Tensing was put on administrative leave pending the conclusion of the investigation.

Tensing was wearing a body camera, WLWT reports, but police have not released footage from it.

The University of Cincinnati Police Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A number listed for Audrey Dubose in Cincinnati was disconnected…

This is another killing like the one in South Carolina where the policeman killed a man running away on foot. There is no justification whatsoever to shoot a guy running away on the  basis of a minor traffic stop. Even if the officer had reasonable suspicion of drunk driving. He/She does not pose any immediate danger to the officer. If the victim was a student at the University, there are a lot of ways to catch him and punish him, including expulsion from the school. I mean college kids do sumb isht all the time. Admittedly Dubose was older – but would this cop have shot at a car full of drunk frat kids? What was the cop trying to prove?

I don’t know if the idiot cops who are doing this crap realize it – but at some point civilians arm themselves and shoot back. Doing this type of crap may well cost a good cop doing his job…His life.
