oe Deters, the Hamilton County Prosecutor, said this murder was “Another asinine, senseless shooting.” Deters went on to say that Dubose “Didn’t deserve to be shot in the head” and that “he didn’t even deserve to be tased.”
The video released today contradicts Officer Tensing’s prior statements. As seen in the video, Dubose was asked to unbuckle his seat belt and step out of the vehicle. Dubose apparently moved his foot off the brake, which caused the car to move. Without hesitation, the officer drew his weapon and fired, striking Dubose in the head. He was not being dragged by the vehicle, nor was his life in danger.

Oil companies like Shell, which recently received the green light from the Obama administration to begin drilling in the Chukchi Sea as soon as this summer, have been trying to gain access to the Arctic for years. Now Obama has allowed it.
Since Sandra Bland was killed in police custody, a number of theories have arisen regarding how she died and why. Few believe that she committed suicide, and the investigation into her death has now shifted gears from a suicide investigation, to a homicide.
“Our strategy should be
not only to confront empire,
but to lay siege to it.
To deprive it of oxygen.
To shame it. To mock it.
With our art, our music, our literature,
our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance,
our sheer relentlessness – and our ability
to tell our own stories. Stories that are
different from the ones we’re being
brainwashed to believe. ― Arundhati Roy
One of the GBI investigators who supervised the criminal investigation into the shooting told the AJC that the shooting was unjust.
“This is the worst one I’ve ever investigated,” said Mike McDaniel, a retired GBI agent. “I don’t think it’s a good shoot. I don’t think it’s justified.”
Even the lead investigator says that this was unjustified, yet these two cops are still out on the street, “protecting and serving.” So turn the brutal, rusty, and bloody cogs of the American justice system.
Dr. Jill Stein can provide the critical transition from exporting munitions, terror and war… to exporting knowledge, technology and peace in our time.
