Even children playing with toys are not safe from police brutality.

Tamir Rice was a 12 year-old African American boy playing with his toy, when he was fatally shot on November 22, 2014. No charges were set in place to the officer Timothy Loehmann, who had shot him. Two officers, Loehmann and 46-year-old Frank Garmback, were responding to a police dispatch call regarding a black male that "keeps pulling a gun out of his pants and pointing it at people.” A caller reported that a male was pointing "a pistol" at random people at the Cudell Recreation Center, a park in the City of Cleveland's Public Works Department. At the beginning of the call and again in the middle, he says of the pistol "it's probably fake.” Toward the end of the two-minute call, the caller states that "he is probably a juvenile.”

However, this information was not relayed to officers Loehmann or Garmback on the initial dispatch. This caused the officers to yell at Rice “show me your hands” and as it looked from far away, as if Rice was trying to draw, Loehmann shot him twice and he ended up dead the next day. There is footage from the day of the shooting that was displayed to the police department 4 days after the shooting and to which they did not further the case as it had already been “closed.”

Sign this petition and give Tamir Rice the justice he deserves.
