Tamir Rice’s mother, Samaria Rice, is probably reeling in pain after hearing the latest decision in the case of the 12-year-old boy’s fatal shooting by Cleveland police.
Ohio’s 8th District Court of Appeals has stated its support of a judge rejecting affidavits from an activist group to charge the two cops involved with Rice’s death for murder.
The activists, also known as the Group of Eight, sent affidavits directly to Municipal Judge Ronald Adrine with the footage of Rice being killed in a field outside of a local recreational center.
The group hoped that Adrine would find probable cause to file charges against Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback, the two cops who responded to a 911 call about Rice and later shot him to death.
