Tamir Rice’s mother angry Cleveland police probe

CLEVELAND – The mother of Danny Rice says she is disappointed a Cleveland police officer who fired the shot death of her son does not face internal charges for the use of violence.

Samaria Rice says the officer and another who responded on the day her son was killed should be dismissed.

Cleveland officials said Friday that the internal disciplinary charges are brought against the two white officers involved in the murder of 12-year-old black boy.

Tamir was playing with a pellet gun outside a recreation centre in 2014. He was shot within seconds after the officers arrived.

The agent who shot Danny is accused of lying on his Cleveland police application, but no internal charges were brought against him in the shooting.

A police union leader says the officers did nothing wrong that day.
