[Ed. – And if that doesn’t result in an indictment, there’s a third and fourth time.]
The mayor of Cleveland confirmed today that there will be an administrative review of the police officers’ actions in the Tamir Rice shooting, one day after a grand jury decided not to press criminal charges against the officers involved.
“People are upset, and legitimately and rightfully so,” Mayor Frank Jackson said at a press conference this afternoon.
Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty announced Monday that a grand jury declined to indict two police officers in connection with Tamir’s death. Tamir was holding a toy gun when he was shot by officer Timothy Loehmann at a Cleveland playground in November 2014.
“We are doing everything in our power to ensure that this never happens again,” Jackson said.
