A grand jury in Cleveland, Ohio has announced their decision on whether or not the officers involved in the fatal shooting of 12 year Tamir Rice last November.
Neither officers will face charges per the grand jury’s decision.
The family of Rice along with many activists hoped to see not only charges brought against the officers, but a conviction as well.
Rice was fatally shot by two Cleveland PD officers when they responded to a report of a boy with a gun. He was wielding a pellet gun when officers arrived and he was immediately shot by the responding officers.

Prosecutor suggests Tamir Rice looked older than 12 years old. Odd detail, as being older than 12 is not grounds for using deadly force.

I'm scared of the power of the police. How can you kill a child and get away with it? This is the government gone awry. #TamirRice

Every (Black) Community should be moving in the spirit of UJIMA and decide a collective response to this miscarriage of justice. #TamirRice

My mind is mostly with Tamir's mother. The tears of the mothers of slain black children are waters that flow way too often. Rest #TamirRice

When I was little we said The Pledge of Allegiance in school. How can kids say it now if there's no liberty and justice for all? #TamirRice
