Justice For Tamir Rice

My cousin Tamir was only 12-years-old when he was shot and killed last year by a Cleveland police officer as he played in a park with a toy gun. Timothy Loehmann, an officer in training, shot and killed Tamir within two seconds of arriving at the park. The police car hadn’t even fully stopped before he began shooting. He shot my little cousin so quickly it would have been impossible for him to tell Tamir to drop the toy airsoft gun, much less for Tamir to respond to them. Tamir’s killing was captured on camera. That should have been all that was needed to charge the officer. But it marks a full year since his death and the County Prosecutor, Timothy McGinty, has still not even presented this case to a grand jury to determine if charges will be filed against the officers. This is unacceptable. All funds raised will go towards hiring a special prosecutor to reopen the case and seek charges against the officer.
