Tamir Rice’s Family asks for aggravated murder charge against Cleveland Officer Timothy Loehmann-Statement

09/14/2015
       

I along with a growing number of people in communities around the country truly believe Tamir’s life was taken due to the careless-cold hearted actions of two individuals. We also believe it was truly bad police work,- many times citizen shootings have shown the officers seem likely to follow a “shoot first, ask questions later” strategy and these officers are rarely investigated and brought to justice. Tamir was only 12 years old when the Police Officer shot him- We are now calling for any/every good hearted human being to assist us in our effort to hold  these officers to account for their wrong doing.

 

We believe the officers seem to have ignored the state’s most fundamental duties which police officers, as agents of the state, must comply with- that is carrying out their law enforcement duty, to protect life!

In addition, we agree with the recent U.S. Department of Justice report that found the Cleveland Police Department to have a “pattern or practice of unreasonable and unnecessary use of force,” and has repeatedly violated the civil rights of local residents, and routinely fails to adequately investigate law enforcement for wrongdoing has added daily to the growing level of discontent.”

 

With that being said, “I along with my advocacy team stand with the effort for aggravated murder charges against Cleveland Police Officer Timothy Loehmann and I will support any effort that will brings an end to police abuse of citizens.” Join us-In the days ahead as we intentionally raise our efforts in our fight for Tamir.
