New Footage Shows Officers Restraining Tamir Rice’s Sister
Cleveland city officials released extended video that show’s police forcing Tamir Rice’s sister to the ground after they shot her brother. The video shows Rice’s sister running to his aide after hearing the gun shots. Once she approached the body, she is held down by the officers involved and eventually handcuffed and put in the back of a squad car, just feet from where her brother lay dying. The video confirms claims made by Samira Rice, Tamir’s mother.
Currently, the shooting of Tamir is under investigation. Cleveland police officials have handed the case over to the Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Department. From there, evidence collected by Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty’s office will present the evidence to a grand jury, which will decide whether to criminally indict any officers involved.
