It is no secret that American police rarely observe the laws of the land when out wilding with each other, and as any candid criminal judge will tell you, perjury is often their native tongue in court.
Another university officer who arrived shortly after the shooting, Eric Weibel, wrote in his report that Officer Tensing had told him that “he was being dragged by the vehicle and had to fire his weapon,” and that “Officer Tensing stated that he was almost run over.” A third officer, he wrote, said he had seen Officer Tensing being dragged.
Here is the disturbing video in HD quality:
Now, after watching that, some questions.
1.) What is the name and badge number of the officer who wrote that he saw Officer Tensing being dragged.
2.) Is he/she still on the job? If so, why?
3.) Was this is an official report? If so, has he/she been charged with the relevant crime whether it be perjury, filing a false report?
4.) Have you begun to re-investigate past accusations of wrongdoing on her/his part? Why not?
Bad cops aren’t a one off. It comes from a culture of permissiveness, mutual reinforcement, and covering each other’s backs with lies. There is a reason it is called the the thin blue line and not the thin blue dot.
This doesn’t start and stop with Tensing.
