Tamir Rice

The 12-year-old was shot by a police officer in Cleveland on Nov. 22 after the officer mistook his toy airsoft gun for a pistol. When officers arrived at the scene, responding to a call about a “guy with a pistol that was probably fake,” police say that Tamir reached for his toy and ignored three commands to “drop the his weapon”, which caused officer Timothy Loehmann to fire two shots at the young boy. He died the next day.  A recently released video of the incident  appears to contradict the officers’ story.
