BHR Hollywood Reports.................The family of Sam Dubose wants peace to remain on Cincinnati streets.

Dubose's older sister Terina Allen said she has enjoyed watching the marches and rallies demanding justice for her brother.

Sam Dubose In His Car
Sam Dubose was stopped at a traffic stop by a Cincinnati Officer. After a routine traffic stop by the Officer, Sam ended up dead with his face blown off.

 The officer was wearing a body camera, but the city refuses to release the video.

 In the meantime, everybody who sees it is deeply disturbed, including the city wide police chief.

DuBose not as the unarmed man shot and killed by University of Cincinnati police Officer Ray Tensing during a traffic stop on July 19 in Mount Auburn, but as a father, a son, a brother, a cousin, a grandfather.

He was as well a lover of music, a rapper, the founder of a black motorcycle gang and the kind of man whose smile lit up a room.

He was laid to rest as officials continue their investigation into the shooting and as the community calls for more information into the death, including the release of the officer’s body camera video of the shooting, which the Hamilton County prosecutor said is vital to the case.

UC Police Chief Jason Goodrich said Tensing spotted DuBose driving without a front license plate near the UC campus and followed him about a half-mile.

Tensing asked for a driver’s license, which DuBose couldn’t produce. He gave the officer an unopened bottle of alcohol instead, Goodrich said.

The two men struggled at the door of the car, and Tensing fired once, fatally striking DuBose in the head, Goodrich said.

The car traveled a block farther before coming to a rest on the narrow sidewalk at Rice and Valencia, authorities said.

Many in the community question that version of events.

“Despite all the things going on outside, we are not going to dismiss that,” said the Rev. Ennis Tate during the start of funeral services for DuBose at Church of the Living God.

“But for a few minutes we are going to celebrate the life of Samuel DuBose.

 It’s not about religion today. It’s about unity. Today is about solidarity. ... About coming together today.”

Tate called for the congregation to celebrate DuBose’s life and to support his family:

“C’mon, c’mon, c’mon. Fill this house with love.”
