Cleveland Police Fire Officer Who Shot Tamir Rice

Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams announced Tuesday, May 30, 2017, that Timothy Loehmann, the police officer who shot and killed the 12-year-old boy, has been fired for inaccuracies on his job application, while the officer who drove the patrol auto the day of the November 22, 2014, shooting, Frank Garmback, has been suspended for 10 days for violating a tactical rule for his driving that day.

Garmback was suspended for 10 days for violating a tactical rule for his driving that day.

In January, it was announced that the two officers as well as a third officer, William Cunningham, would face administrative charges from the department. Investigators say surveillance shows Tamir reaching toward his waistband and lifting up an outer garment.

An Ohio grand jury declined to criminally charge the officers in 2015.

Why can't Black kids be kids without fear of getting killed by someone who is supposed to serve and protect?

"We have learned a lot", since the Rice shooting, Chief Williams said on Tuesday, pointing to new policies and training in de-escalation tactics.

"Soon afterward, police drove onto the grass within feet of 12-year-old Tamir". "We have to be fair and objective".

Total of 108 people stay in Moscow hospitals following storm
Sources in the emergency services had told TASS one person died because of a falling tree in southwest Moscow . The mayor said families of those killed will receive one million rubles ($17,760) each, according to Tass.

However, digging deeper, it becomes clear that the official reason for Loehmann's termination isn't killing Rice, but rather "providing false information" on his job application to become a cop.

"I'm relieved that Loehmann was sacked as he should be".

The city of Cleveland settled a wrongful death lawsuit a year ago with the Rice family for $6 million.

"Shame on the city of Cleveland for taking so long to deal with the situation", said Samaria.

At the news conference announcing Loehmann's firing Tuesday, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson offered "condolences to the family of Tamir Rice". Williams said the department now makes sure to read through all applicants' personnel files and employment history.

Loehmann's firing took effect Tuesday morning, and Garmback's suspension begins Wednesday.
