IJPC Response – Ray Tensing Mistrial

Though not privy to courtroom proceedings, IJPC remains concerned that power and privilege have served as the determining factors in reaching a mistrial for Ray Tensing for the murder of Sam DuBose. We believe that all life is precious and deserving of respect and protection. This decision deepens our commitment to advocating for an end to systemic racism through peaceful and nonviolent means. We strongly urge Joe Deters to retry this case.
