CLEVELAND, Ohio – On This Friday, October 16, 2015 at 12:00 noon, the Tamir Rice Family including Samaria Rice, along with community activists, will conduct a Press Conference at the Justice Center Complex calling for the local/national community to come together as they seek to educate the community about recent issues with regard to their fight to receive “Justice For Tamir.”

Attending this special meeting will be many supporters, local and national civil rights leadership. One important agenda item for discussion is to address community concerns from their viewpoint about the “political nature” of the newly unearthed Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty’s authorized report about deadly police shootings made by the two experts who defended an Ohio officer’s killing of Tamir Rice. For their effort, the group also wants to address community members’ growing concern, as they believe this report has intensified criticisms of prosecutor for selecting a premature, one-sided review of the 12-year-old’s death. One “alleged” expert appeared to publicly cast doubt on whether the officer who killed Rice was at fault even before he was commissioned to write a report on the case; the other had her interpretation of a key US supreme court ruling on police shootings rejected by the Justice Department as too generous to officers. “I believe that in order for Cleveland to make sustainable change within its police department, and to improve trust within this community police officers that violate police protocol and procedures must be held accountable for their actions in a court of law,” says Latonya Goldsby, Rice family cousin.

“We have remained diligent in our call for an arrest and indictment of officers Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback. We still stand firm in this belief.”
