CINCINNATI (AP) — Cincinnati’s city council wants a white police officer charged with murder in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man retried after jurors failed to reach a verdict.

The council has unanimously approved a resolution asking Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters “to take all steps necessary to pursue a retrial” of former University of Cincinnati officer Ray Tensing. Tensing was fired after fatally shooting Samuel DuBose during a traffic stop near campus in July 2015. He was indicted on murder and voluntary manslaughter charges.

Tensing testified at trial that he feared he was going to be killed.

A mistrial was declared Saturday when jurors failed to reach a verdict after deliberating 25 hours.

Deters has said he expects to decide by Nov. 28 whether to retry Tensing.

  1. You’d actually have to go to a legitimate news outlet for this, but did anyone notice that Trump has turned down a Presidential salary of $400K. Insisting on doing the job of serving his country for free? L, any comments?
