Judge Declares Second Mistrial in Trial for Police Killing of Samuel DuBose

We have given this extensive deliberation with opportunities for both sides to express their position. "We can not proceed coming to a unanimous decision", the jury wrote, according to CNN.

Tensing testified he shot DuBose because he feared for his life after his left arm became trapped inside DuBose's moving vehicle on July 19, 2015. The trial took place in Cincinnati, Ohio. An expert hired by prosecutors said his frame-by-frame analysis of the former officer's body camera video showed the officer was not being dragged by the vehicle. The graphic footage shows the two had a brief struggle before Tensing fired his gun.

The lack of convictions has riled advocates and victims' families who say the system is stacked in favor of law enforcement and disregards black lives.

Tensing was charged with murder and voluntary manslaughter in the July 2015 shooting death of DuBose, 43. Tensing then told DuBose to remove his seatbelt, then the officer attempted to open the auto door.

The prosecution argued Tensing was in no imminent danger but rather forgot his training and reacted in an unreasonable manner.

However, the member station adds that prosecutors "argued Tensing was in no imminent danger but rather forgot his training and reacted in an unreasonable manner", and "a forensic video expert analyzed Tensing's body camera footage and testified the vehicle didn't begin moving until.178 seconds (less than a second) before Tensing fired the fatal shot". "I didn't shoot to kill him". DuBose's family has called for another retrial. Tensing proceeded to reach into the auto and subsequently shot the Black man.

The prosecutor during the first trial, Joseph Deters, had strongly criticized the shooting.

"It is the prosecutor's job, not this court's job, to include reckless homicide", Ghiz said, according to the Associated Press.

CORNISH: And this is the second time Tensing has been tried on these charges. Two were acquitted and one trial ended in deadlock.

A mistrial was also declared in Tensing's first trial after the jury deliberated for 25 hours.

DuBose's family said in a statement that they want a new trial, and they urged that protests remain peaceful. The family commends the prosecutors for their strong presentation in this case but we are outraged that a second jury has now failed to convict Ray Tensing for the murder of our beloved Sam DuBose.

It is the second time a mistrial has been declared in the case of former University of Cincinnati campus police officer Ray Tensing who is accused of killing Sam DuBose in an incident tinged with the same overtones of racial discrimination and heavy-handed tactics as other recent high-profile USA police shooting cases.

"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.
