Not Quite a Chicken Shit Stop
- Sam DuBose, the man shot to death by Officer Ray Tensing, had two pounds of marijuana in his car, along with thousands in cash, according to police sources familiar with the case. Leftist activists have seized on the case since Tensing is white and DuBose was black as evidence of an epidemic of cops gunning down unarmed men.
Sources within University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Police Departments told retired NYPD officer John Cardillo that police found two pounds of marijuana and thousands of dollars in cash in his car. Cardillo called to confirm these new facts with the public information office of the Cincinnati Police Department, and they did not deny them. Neither did the prosecutor’s office when Cardillo contacted them.
“The narrative has been: ‘Well, he was taking his son to a movie,’ and ‘he’s just fed up with being pulled over, yet again, for something minor.’ That appears now not to be the case,” Cardillo said in an interview with WJNO radio.
The host asked Cardillo why the contents of DuBose’s car had not been made public yet.
“That’s an excellent question,” Cardillo said. “I think this is all part and parcel to a bigger issue, and something similar to what we saw in Baltimore, which was a very hasty, political prosecution, a very hasty investigation.”
A political prosecution for a political end, namely that a certain segment of the community would take it upon themselves to torch large swaths of Cincinnati on another lie spouted by the leftist media, so by golly, you'd better railroad a cop.
