CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Nearly one year after the death of Tamir Rice, his mother Samaria and her lawyers are calling for a special prosecutor to be appointed to the case. Tamir was holding an airsoft pellet gun when he was fatally shot by a Cleveland police officer on November 22, 2014 outside Cudell Rec Center.
“It’s been almost a year now of no justice and no peace,” said Samaria Rice.
Saturday, Oct. 10, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty’s office released a report from expert witnesses who say the shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice was “reasonable” based on what the officers knew at the time.
Rice and Attorney Chandra Subodh have expressed concern about McGinty’s public release of what they are calling ‘pro-police and fundamentally flawed reports which they believe will taint the grand jury process’.
“I believe Prosecutor McGinty is obstructing Justice,” said LaTonya Goldsby, Tamir’s cousin.
In a letter and publicly from the steps of the Justice Center, lawyers for the Rice family called on McGinty to step down.
