Tamir Rice’s Mother Demands Justice on Two-Year Anniversary of Son’s Killing

November 23, 2016, marks the two-year anniversary of the murder of 11-year-old Tamir Rice at the hands of Cleveland, OH police officer Timothy Loehmann. Loehmann, who was a trainee at the time, shot Tamir moments after arriving at a park where Tamir was playing. Loehmann and his training officer, Frank Garmback, were responding to a police dispatch call at the park. The police officers said the boy was pulling out a gun; which was later found to be a toy gun when he was shot.

In December 2014, a grand jury declined to indict Loehmann or his trainer in Tamir’s death. The grand jury concluded the shooting was a “perfect storm of human error, mistakes, and communications,” but not a criminal act, prosecutor Tim McGinty said at the time.

Two years later, Tamir’s mother, Samaria Rice, stood on the steps of the police headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio and read out her list of demands. See video below:
