Watch The Body Cam Video That Led To An Officer Being Charged With The Murder Of Sam DuBose

Officer Ray Tensing's body camera captured the moment he shot and killed 43-year-old Samuel DuBose during a traffic stop. Video of that incident was released on Wednesday.

Tensing was indicted on murder charges for shooting DuBose, with a prosecutor claiming Tensing "purposely killed him" and "should never have been a police officer."

Tensing claimed he was dragged by DuBose's car and forced to shoot, but the video from the body camera clearly shows Tensing firing while DuBose sat in his motionless vehicle, just after Tensing asked him to remove his seatbelt and DuBose started his engine.
