Ohio officer who shot Sam DuBose wore Confederate flag T-shirt under uniform

Ohio officer who shot Sam DuBose wore Confederate flag T-shirt under uniform – [usatoday.com] The T-shirt was submitted as evidence during the testimony of Cincinnati police crime scene investigator Jimmy Nghia Duc Pham. Pham testified investigators found a jar containing marijuana within the 1998 Honda Accord DuBose was occupying, three bags of marijuana in the Accord and a “couple” of bags in DuBose’s pockets. Court took a 10-minute recess following the introduction of evidence gathered by crime scene investigators. Earlier, a use-of-force expert called by the prosecution testified that Tensing’s decision to reach into DuBose’s vehicle and “knock out” the ignition key “was technically unsound.” Post Falls, Idaho Police Chief Scot Haug, a recognized use-of-force expert, said DuBose did not pose a threat or serious harm to Tensing at the time he was fatally shot on July 19, 2015. Haug testified that U.S. law says a police officer can’t shoot a fleeing suspect unless there’s a threat of death or serious injury to officers or others.
