Some updates on Sam Dubose

2 police officers who responded to the scene both claimed, in formal reports, that they saw the firing officer, Ray Tensing, being dragged by Dubose's car, but video from the Tensing's own body cam does not show him being dragged by a car! Mysterious!

Tensing was charged with murder Wednesday. He pleaded not guilty Thursday morning.

Bond was set at $1 million. A bond deposit of 10 percent of that amount was posted and Tensing was released from jail at about 6:35 p.m. Thursday , according to court records and officials.


The officers who responded were also involved in the killing in an unarmed black man in 2010 (see Guardian link)

A former correspondent and writer for Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” has disclosed that he and its host, Jon Stewart, engaged in a heated argument about a segment perceived as racially insensitive.

I never liked Jon, and it's never been a secret that he's an asshole who reacts poorly to being challenged.
