Tamir Rice’s Death Is His Own Fault, Claims City Of Cleveland


TYT Network

The mayor of Cleveland has apologized after the city claimed that Tamir Rice died because of his own actions, according to BuzzFeed. Rice was the 12-year-old boy shot dead by a police officer in November while holding a toy gun.

Speaking at a news conference Monday, Mayor Frank Jackson said that a complaint detailing the city’s defense against a lawsuit filed on behalf of the boy’s family used a poor choice of words. He said he was sorry for the “insensitivity of those words.”

  1. An incredible notion. I hope Cleveland gets to pay out millions to the family for hiring a man rejected by another police department as unfit for that work who subsequently established that was a fair assessment when he murdered a child.
