Samaria Rice says she wants police involved in the shooting death of her 12-year-old son, Tamir, to be convicted. Her comments came during a press conference yesterday, marking the first time she’s publicly spoken on the incident.
“My child doesn’t do things like that. I don’t allow that type of toy in my house around him. Period.”
Police say Tamir didn’t follow orders to put up his hands.
Her comments came late Monday morning as she spoke publicly on Tamir’s death for the first time to local media since the Nov. 22 incident. Tamir’s father, who was present at the press conference, did not speak.
