The family of Tamir Rice and their supporters are criticizing the police union's recent statement and are also questioning the timing of its release.By Jamal Andress | April 26, 2016
The city of Cleveland and Tamir Rice's family are at odds again, this time over some unwarranted advice from the Cleveland police union, despite announcing a settlement.
In an open letter released Monday, the president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association said, "We can only hope the Rice family and their attorneys will use a portion of this settlement to help educate the youth of Cleveland in the dangers associated with the mishandling of both real and facsimile firearms."
Rice was shot by Cleveland police while playing with a toy gun in a local park.
