Cleveland police officers cleared in Tamir Rice shooting #RIPTamirRice

“CLEVELAND – A grand jury cleared two Cleveland police officers in the November 2014 fatal shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was brandishing a toy gun in a park, due to a lack of evidence indicating criminal activity, a prosecutor said on Monday.

The grand jury for weeks had been hearing testimony on the shooting of Rice, which took place within seconds after police arrived at a park next to a Cleveland recreation center in response to reports of a suspect with a gun. Rice died the next day.

Rice’s shooting is one of several cases that have raised questions about police use of deadly force in the United States, particularly against minorities. The officers are white and Rice was black.

Rice was playing with a replica handgun outside a recreation center when Officer Timothy Loehmann shot him twice within seconds of reaching the park in a squad car driven by his partner, Frank Garmback.

“Simply put, given this perfect storm of human error, mistakes and miscommunication by all involved that day, the evidence did not indicate criminal conduct by police,” Tim McGinty, the Cuyahoga County prosecutor, said in a statement mad to the media.”
