Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson declined to comment on the Cuyahoga County grand jury’s decision to not indict two city police officers in the controversial shooting death of Tamir Rice.

But the mayor did say the county prosecutor did not go through “due process,” but through “a process” before the grand jury handed down its decision.

Jackson met with reporters in City Hall the day after the grand jury decision was announced. In his shirtsleeves and often leaning back in his swivel chair, he spoke at times in philosophical and soft-voiced terms about the tragedy where the life of Tamir ended at the age of 12.

“There’s nothing that anybody in this room or I can do which is sufficient enough to deal with grief that a mother has for losing a child,” said Jackson. “And we’re doing what we can to ensure that nothing like that happens again,” he added.
