A Hamilton County grand jury has indicted former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing for murder in the shooting death of Samuel DuBose in a July 19 traffic stop. The shooting was, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters said, the most “asinine” and “senseless” act he has ever seen a police officer commit. 

We look at the events leading up to the indictment, get an update, and explore the possible affects the case may have on policing, both locally and nationally. Joining us are Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters, Cincinnati City Council Member Wendell Young, and WVXU reporters Tana Weingartner and Bill Rinehart.
