Some of the contents of Sam DuBose’s car at the time of his death have been identified.
WLWT has confirmed through CPD’s search warrant inventory document that four bags and a jar of marijuana were in Dubose’s car at the time of the July 19 traffic stop that ended in former UC Officer Ray Tensing fatally shooting DuBose.
However, multiple sources have told WLWT officers found a little less than 2 pounds of marijuana.
No officials were immediately able to confirm the amount of marijuana found.
According to reports, the marijuana was found in the car’s center console, under the front passenger seat and on the floor behind the driver’s seat.
Police sources said the street value for the amount of marijuana found in DuBose’s car is anywhere between $2,000 and $5,000 depending on the quality and the demand.
Police said any marijuana weighing more than two pounds is considered a felony.
Officers said the search warrant was obtained two days after the deadly shooting.
Because a police state that murders people certainly isn’t above planting evidence after the fact, even if having pot was worth justification for Sam DuBose’s summary execution by Ray Tensing, or that it had anything at all to do with Tensing pulling the trigger. Because of course a black person killed by a white cop had pot on them, right? Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, Sam DuBose, yadda yadda forever and ever amen. Always do, ya know.
So now thanks to the Cincinnati media that bungled this story from day one, accepting the police report that Tensing was being dragged and didn’t think to question it until after the bodycam footage surfaced, we have the same media accepting this police report, a warrant executed two days after the shooting, by cops that we already know lied to the media in the first place. It’s not like they’d have any motive to make DuBose look like a felon or anything.
The stenography goes unquestioned again around here. Good job, guys!
