|The Cuyahoga County prosecutor is taking evidence from "experts" who believe the law's account of the fatal shooting of 12-year old Tamir Rice.|
I am amazed that the law would be so willing to do a document dump in this high profile shooting.
As I check the wires, I hear that the officer who fatally shot Tamir Rice in November 2014 may walk a free man.
Timothy Loehmann became a focal point of a state investigation. The rookie officer aided by his partner Frank Garmback arrived on a call that a man was waving a gun around.
The dispatcher received a call from a man saying that there's a man in his "20s" pointing a gun at people at a community center, he said that it probably "looks fake". The dispatcher failed to tell the officers that about the possibility of the gun being "fake".
So as the officers arrive on scene within a few seconds, Loehmann would fatally shoot Tamir.
Tamir would die of his injuries the next day. This would put Loehmann and Garmback on ice pending a grand jury indictment. It also launched a federal probe into the Cleveland Police.

The two reports, as well as a third one by the Highway Patrol, were posted on the prosecutor's website Saturday night.
"These cases are, by their very nature, different than other matters that come to our office," McGinty said in a written statement. "They demand a higher level of public scrutiny as well as a careful evaluation of the officer's conduct and whether, under law, those actions were reasonable under the circumstances."
S. Lamar Sims, the senior chief deputy district attorney in Denver, wrote one of the reports and concludes Loehmann's decision to shoot Rice as he approached the officers was "objectively reasonable"
"There can be no doubt that Rice's death was tragic and, indeed, when one considers his age, heartbreaking," Sims writes in his report. "However, for all of the reasons discussed herein, I conclude that Officer Loehmann's belief that Rice posed a threat of serious physical harm or death was objectively reasonable as was his response to that perceived threat."
The family of Tamir slammed this. They said that these "experts" are trying to justify a reckless call by an officer who is unfit to wear the uniform.

Chandra criticized the experts as "pro-police" and said it was obvious from the video that the officers never assessed the situation.
"Reasonable jurors could find that conduct unreasonable," he said, adding that the family believes the prosecutor "is working diligently to ensure that there is no indictment.
Matter of fact, the leak of information is a deliberate attempt to bias the case.
For you see, concern troll are already blaming the victim for his own death. They don't see that the state of Ohio is an open carry state. Anyone over the age of 18 is allowed to carry in public.
The person who called dispatch saw a 5'7" man in reality he was a 12 year old boy.
The concern troll says stuff like this.
The U.S. Justice Department found that the Cleveland Police is inept. This incident adds to the list of many events in which Cleveland Police had failed their community. The fatal shootings of two fleeing suspects, Anthony Sowell, and Ariel Castro gave the police a bad name.
See this type of stuff makes me mad.
Open Carry in the state of Ohio is legal for White people. Open Carry in the state of Ohio could result in the death penalty of Black and Hispanic people.
