Samaria Rice expected more protesters following the grand jury’s decision not to indict two Cleveland police officers in the shooting death of her 12-year-old son, Tamir.

“I wish there could have been more people,” said Samaria. “These people need to wake-up if they want some change.”

Protesters turned out consistently in the days following the decision, but not in big numbers.

“People need to get involved with something and try to make a change or something because you don’t want to wait until it happens to you and there’s nobody out there for you,” said Samaria.

She spoke for the first time in Cleveland since the grand jury declined to charge officers with any crime.
