You can’t make an omelette without a lot of summary executions, or something:
An Ohio Grand Jury has declined to indict two police officers in the death of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy who was shot dead by a Cleveland police officer last year, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty said today.
McGinty said he also recommended that no charges be filed.
After the Grand Jury “heard all the evidence and the applicable law, they were told our recommendation,” the prosecutor’s office said. “But they made the final decision.”
Tamir was holding a toy gun when he was shot by officer Timothy Loehmann at a Cleveland playground in November 2014. The grand jury was hearing evidence to determine if any charges would be brought against Loehmann or his partner, Frank Garmback.
