Tamir Rice shooting declared Justified by 2 new reports
The police officer, Timothy Loehmann that fatally shot 12 year old Tamir Rice within 2 seconds of arriving on the scene just got a big boost in being cleared of the shooting. 2 reports commissioned by the prosecutor found the killing to be justified.
"A retired FBI agent and a Denver prosecutor both found the rookie patrolman who shot Tamir Rice in November exercised a reasonable use of force because he had reason to perceive the boy — described in a 911 call as man waving and pointing a gun — as a serious threat. The reports were released Saturday night by the Cuyahoga County prosecutor’s office, which asked for the outside reviews as it presents evidence to a grand jury that will ultimately determine whether Timothy Loehmann will be charged in Tamir’s death" - Los Angeles Times
