Joe Deters’ reputation is tough-on-crime. His reputation is winning. In the case against Ray Tensing, the Hamilton County prosecutor's talk was typically tough. But Tuesday, when Deters announced he would not seek a third trial for the former University of Cincinnati police officer after two juries deadlocked, he conceded the case was one he could not win. Two years ago, Deters thought he could.
Cincinnati police Sgt. Shannon Heine was supposed to be one of many building blocks in the prosecution’s case against Ray Tensing. On the retrial’s second day, the 18-year veteran walked up to the witness stand in full uniform, placed her cap on the ledge and answered questions from Hamilton County Assistant Prosecutor Seth Tieger. Heine, one of the lead investigators, interviewed Tensing on July 21, 2015, two days after he fatally shot Sam DuBose as he tried to drive away from a traffic stop.
Tuesday's decision by Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters to not retry former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing is just the latest development in the two years since he killed Sam DuBose. Here's a look back on notable public events of the case as they pertain to Tensing:July 19, 2015: Ray Tensing dons his police uniform for his last shift.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
