According to The Huffington Post, the union representing a University of Cincinnati police officer charged with murder wants to help him get his job back.
Police Officer Ray Tensing has been charged with shooting an unarmed black man during a traffic stop.
The Fraternal Order of Police of Ohio filed a grievance on behalf of Officer Tensing on Wednesday, the same day that he was charged with murder and manslaughter in the July 19 killing of Sam DuBose.
Tensing lost his job upon being charged with murder.
Catherine Brockton, the union’s executive director, said, “He hasn’t been convicted of anything.”
However, he has been charged and it will take time to go to trial.
Brockton acknowledged that Tensing getting his job back before the trial verdict isn’t “likely.” She said to The Huffington Post that the filing of the grievance as a routine maneuver.
