Tensing Gets Paid

A white police officer, fired after he fatally shot a black unarmed motorist, will get about $344,000 in back pay and legal fees from the University of Cincinnati. The university is paying Ray Tensing to settle a union grievance brought on his behalf for his 2015 firing, following his indictment on murder charges. The charges were dropped last year after two juries deadlocked. The Fraternal Order of Police had challenged Tensing’s firing, saying he shouldn’t have been removed from the university’s police force before the case was resolved. As part of the settlement, Tensing has resigned and will not pursue any other claims against the university.
