IFWT_ Tamir Rice Autopsy

It’s been over a year since the shooting death of 12 year-old Tamir Rice and Monday (December 28th) an Ohio grand jury has decided that the officer involved in the incident will not face charges. The decision came after a drawn out investigation, that concluded the shooting was “reasonable” as the officer who killed Tamir Rice, while he was holding a toy gun, believed he was facing a threat.

Prosecutor Tim McGinty, spoke about the grand jury’s decision and called what happened to Tamir Rice and his family “absolute tragedy.” He continued, “But it was not, by the law that binds us, a crime.”

McGinty added that he has heard the protestors chats for justice. He said, He said, “We too want justice for Tamir,” But it would not be justice to bring charges against the officers involved in the shooting if those charges “could not be sustained.”

The procecutor added, that it “doesn’t mean the legal system is done,” saying civil courts may provide some accountability to the Rice family, “that they deserve.”
