"The death of Tamir Rice was an absolute tragedy. It was horrible unfortunate and regrettable, but it was not by the law that binds us, a crime," said Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty.
More than a year after 12-year-old Tamir Rice was killed on a Cleveland playground, a grand jury has decided not to indict Rice's shooter, officer Timothy Loehmann.
Loehmann responded to a 911 caller who said a young man was playing with a weapon and pointing it at people outside of a local recreation center. The caller also mentioned the gun was probably a toy, but that information was reportedly not given to Loehmann. (Video via WEWS)
