Tensing's second trial in the death of Sam DuBose ended in a hung jury Friday. DuBose's family have called on the community to "join us in peaceful protest of this unjust result.”

City Manager Harry Black said officials will respect those wishing to peacefully protest.

"While problems are not expected, as always, preparations for any scenario are in place. We'll continue to rely on community partnerships," Black tweeted. 

"I do not believe Sam Dubose should have been killed in that situation," Mayor John Cranley said a City Hall press conference. 

Black and Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac joined Cranley, all offering condolences to the DuBose family. 

"Just because we may not like the way things happened in this case today, doesn't mean that Cincinnati is not going to move forward. We will move forward," Cranley said.

“In any other case if there was a question about justice being served we would go all the way,” Councilwoman and mayoral candidates Yvette Simpson said to reporters. “So why should we make an exception here?”
