Background:

Tamir Rice was a 12 year-old boy murdered by police officers Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback while playing with a toy gun at a recreation park near his home, in Cleveland Ohio. Video released shows officer Loehmann fire two shots at Tamir within seconds of the officer’s arrival; before the car came to a complete stop. After the encounter, neither officer administered first aid and Tamir subsequently died the next day. Nearly a YEAR later with many delays there is still no justice for Tamir – neither officer has even been CHARGED with Tamir’s murder.

ONE YEAR Since Tamir Rice’s Murder By Police and STILL NO JUSTICE!
Now is the time to show our support and our outrage, and stand with Tamir’s family.
