Just two days after a grand jury chose not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for killing Michael Brown, another black male's death by police has grabbed America's attention. This time, a 12-year-old named Tamir Rice was killed Saturday while playing with a toy gun.
Unlike the shooting in Ferguson that has ignited protests across the nation, Rice's shooting was chronicled by a surveillance video — which was released to the public Wednesday.
"The guy keeps pulling it in and out of his pants. It's probably fake, but you know what? He's scaring the s--- out of people," an anonymous caller told Cleveland dispatchers. (Video via WEWS)
