But here's the other lesson that Baltimore needs to take away from the Tensing case: If not for the video, it's highly unlikely that the officer would be facing a murder charge at all. The initial police report from the July 19 incident quotes a second police officer, Phillip Kidd, who claims that Mr. Dubose's 1998 Honda Accord had dragged Mr. Tensing. Indeed, the officer who interviewed Mr. Tensing for the report, Eric Weibel, also noted that the shooter appeared to have been dragged. "Looking at Officer Tensing's uniform, I could see that the back of his pants and shirt looked as if it had been dragged over a rough surface. I suggested to Officer Tensing that he should go to the hospital for an examination," he wrote.
