It saddens me to even have to discuss this update regarding the horrible tragedy of Tamir Rice. Who was a 12-year-old African American boy who was shot by Police on November 22, 2014, in Cleveland, Ohio. According to sources: Two police officers, 26-year-old Timothy Loehmann and 46-year-old Frank Garmback, responded after receiving a police dispatch call “of a male black sitt1ing on a swing and pointing a gun at people” in a city park. The officers reported that upon their arrival, Rice reached towards a gun in his waistband. Within two seconds of arriving on the scene, Loehmann fired two shots, without yelling at Rice to drop the gun, in response to the weapon being drawn by Rice, hitting Rice once in the torso. His life ended the next day. A surveillance video of the shooting was released by police four days later, on November 26 which leads me to the news of today!
1 OFFICER FIRED, 1 SUSPENDED FOR INVESTIGATIONS “DISPUTE”
IN OTHER WORDS THE OFFICER LIES ON THE REPORT AND FOR THAT HE WAS FIRED, NOT FOR THE SHOOTING OF TAMIR RICE! I’M NOT SURE HOW TO ACCEPT THIS, IS IT JUSTICE? OR IS THIS JUST BULLSHIT…? I am relieved however he is no longer working in the community and can be in a position to take life as he did, but I am disappointed in the system and how they went about the entire situation. This should have been happen two years ago, I repeat like TWO YEARS ago! These are my thoughts on this topic. I would love to hear your yours in the form below. We must stay woke!
