Tweets of the Day: Liberal activists, celebs, pols react (predictably) to Tamir Rice ruling

Yesterday, an Ohio grand jury elected not to return an indictment of Cleveland police who shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice after he appeared to reach for a gun in his waist band.

The gun turned out to be a fake, and the case grabbed national attention as one of the premiere cases in the Black Lives Matter movement.

Yesterday’s decision sparked outrage from celebrities, activists, and politicians. As protesters took to the streets of Cleveland, Twitter exploded with reaction.
