As a father of two young boys, I'm terribly shaken by the death of 12 year old Tamir E. Rice.
12-Year-Old Tamir E. Rice was playing in a park as all kids his age do. He was playing with a BB gun (Non-Lethal). A concerned citizen across the street noticed him poiting it at people and as a safety mesaure decided to call the local law enforcement. During the call, the citizen clearly stated the gun was "probably fake".
The police have changed their story multiple times. What is known from this point, is that Law Enforcement did arrive and somehow decided this 12 year old boy was a threat, shot and seriously injured him. Tamir E. Rice later died at MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland.
Please join us in calling on Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, Cleveland Chief of Police Calvin Williams, to investigate Tamir E. Rice's murder and prosecute Tim Loehmann for the shooting and killing of Tamir E. Rice.
Please uphold justice.
