Two separate juries could not reach a verdict for a white former University of Cincinnati Police officer. Ray Tensing was tried for shooting and killing unarmed black motorist Sam DuBose in 2015. Those juries, like all in Hamilton County, were made up of registered voters. But there is an effort to change how Ohio picks its jurors.
