The trial for the police officer hasn't yet happened, correct? So without a guilty verdict, you are concluding that the officer was wrong? Do you really have enough evidence to reach that conclusion?

IMPO he was wrong based on my observation of the video, and hopefully he will be sentenced for a long, long time. Cincinnati is not trying to have no riots!! They will do the RIGHT thing!!

Here's the video. The shooting happens about three minutes in. For what I see, the officer is wrong.

I hope Tensing gets life without parole. He deserves it. In a fair world, Tensing would be breaking rocks in prison for the rest of his life for 14 hours per day to repay the state for that settlement.

Not a good shoot
I predict conviction
Settlement warranted..except attorneys got way too much

Life without parole... laughable
Bad people rarely get that for purposefully and with malice committing murder ...there is zero evidence of that state of mind or background in this case
Just not the facts in this case
Manslaughter... appropriate... and as such life without parole would not be within the sentencing guidelines

Ex officer due every right afforded to any citizen
Justice scales are supposed to balance moral outrage and bloodlust

So..I ask you this.. if the ex officer was your son.. who got up that morning to do a job... and made a fatal error...how would you feel... bloodlust

How is the world served
This person will for all intent not be a future threat to anyone... unless we brand him as such... liberals want bloodlust when it suits them..conservatives when it serves them
Justice is blind... unless of course if you are uber rich
