Justice for Tamir Rice: City Council Meeting, March 2 Rally

Justice Rally for Tamir Rice and Family
Where: Cleveland, OH City Council Meeting
March 2, 2015, 7:00 p.m.

An article in Saturday’s "Plain Dealer" states, “The city, in its response, wrote that Tamir’s death on Nov. 22 and all of the injuries his family claims in the suit ‘were directly and proximately caused by their own acts, not this Defendant.'"

The city is blaming a 12-yr. old boy, gunned down by police in 2 seconds, for his own murder. This is a slap in the face to the Rice family, every family who has lost a loved one to police murder, and all of those who are struggling to stop police murder of Black and Brown people. The policemen involved in Tamir’s and Tanisha’s deaths are still on the job. Mayor Jackson touts his interest and record in reform, yet he accepts no responsibility for this and other crimes. Does anyone think, with this response, police murder in Cleveland will stop?

The people at the Sardis Primitive Baptist Church last Wednesday expressed righteous outrage at the police and city officials. They are part of a rising voice that needs to be heard. When these are their conclusions, clearly the city is not listening.

This serves as a Call for an Immediate Response to an intolerable development -- Converge on City Council Meeting this Monday, March 2, at 7pm to demand Justice for Tamir, Tanisha, Malissa and Timothy.

  1. Looks like the stalkers are afraid for you to see the embedded video of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old, "proximately cause his own" murder by police. They stopped the embedded video from publishing. We will leave it this way for a spell to show the world how murderers collude with America's censorship team (probably at NSA) to stop disclosure about crimes against humanity, which are continuous in the USA. Blessings.
