12-Year-Old Who Was Murdered By Cops While Playing With a Toy Gun at a Playground: Cops Blame The Boy and His Family

Police shot 12-year-old Tamir Rice within two seconds of arriving at the playground. Police claimed Tamir was ordered to drop his toy gun but obviously there was no time for such a warning. In a state where (whites) are allowed to carry guns in the open, a black child can be shot without warning for playing with a toy gun in a playground.

Officer Tim Loehmann: He was considered mentally
unstable by his superior officers and was fired from a
suburban police department before he got a job
policing a predominantly black neighborhood in an
urban area.

The city of Cleveland claims the death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice at the hands of a police officer and the "losses" suffered by his family were a result of the boy's and his family's own actions that day. The city's denial of any wrongdoing was filed Friday in response to a wrongful death lawsuit brought by lawyers for the Rice family last month.

The city wrote that Tamir's injuries were caused by him failing to "exercise due care." In addition, the complaints brought on behalf of Tamir's sister and mother were also "directly caused by their own acts" — not the officers involved, the response said.

Tamir was fatally shot on Nov. 22 by Cleveland rookie cop Timothy Loehmann, who with his partner, Frank Garmback, were called to a recreation center where Tamir was holding a pellet gun. Police responding to the scene initially believed the pellet gun, which did not have an orange tip identifying it as a replica, was real. Loehmann fired on Tamir within less than two seconds of arriving, surveillance footage shows, and the boy died in the hospital the next day.

The Rice family filed an 8-page wrongful death suit against the two officers and the city of Cleveland in December. But after retaining a new legal team, including high-profile civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, the family filed an amended 65-page suit against the same defendants, which brought at least 27 allegations against the city and the officers.

Police throw 12-year-old Tamir Rice's 14-year-old sister to the ground when she tried to assist her brother after he
was shot by police.  The video clearly shows the cops started shooting as soon as they arrived - They originally
claimed they ordered the boy to drop the toy gun three times.
