[ltr] Tamir Rice, 12, Shot  By Cleveland Police After Brandishing Fake[/ltr]

[ltr]Huffington Post UK/ AP  | By Sara C Nelson[/ltr]

[ltr]A 12-year-old boy has been shot dead by police in Cleveland after brandishing what turned out to be a replica gun.
Tamir Rice died from his wounds on Sunday, a day after officers responded to an emergency call about someone waving a “probably fake” gun in a playground.
Deputy Chief Ed Tomba said one officer fired twice after the boy pulled the fake weapon — which was lacking the orange safety indicator usually found on the muzzle — from his waistband but had not pointed it at police.

The boy did not make any verbal threats but grabbed the replica handgun after being told to raise his hands, Tomba said.
"That's when the officer fired," he said.
Police described the weapon as an "airsoft" type replica that resembled a semi-automatic handgun. The orange safety indicator had been removed, police said.

The two officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that the officers are a first-year rookie and a 10-year department veteran.
The police department has collected surveillance video and other evidence and will present it to the county prosecutor's office, the newspaper said without citing a source. It said after reviewing the evidence prosecutors will present the case to a grand jury, which will decide whether the officer was justified in using force against the boy.
An attorney for the boy's family, Timothy Kucharski, said Tamir went to the park with friends Saturday afternoon, but he did not know the details of what led to his shooting.[/ltr]

"I don't want to make a rush to judgment," he said.
Kucharski said he wants to talk to witnesses himself and get more facts. "We're ultimately going to find out what happened," he said.
A man who called 911 told dispatchers the boy was on a swing set and pointing a pistol that was "probably fake" and scaring everyone.
The caller said the boy was pulling the gun in and out of his waistband.[/ltr]

"I don't know if it's real or not," the caller said.
Jeff Follmer, president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association, said the officers were not told the caller thought the gun might be fake.
The officer called to the playground outside a city recreation centre saw the pistol on a bench, and watched the boy grab it and put it in his waistband, Follmer said.
State Rep. Alicia Reece of Cincinnati announced on Sunday that she will introduce legislation to require all BB guns, air rifles and airsoft guns sold in Ohio to be brightly coloured or have prominent fluorescent strips.

Reece, president of the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus, said she is introducing the bill in response to the fatal shootings of the boy and 22-year-old John Crawford III. It could help "prevent future deadly confrontations," she said in a statement.
Crawford was fatally shot by police on 5 August after a man called 911 to report he was carrying a gun in a supermarket.
Police said they believed the air rifle Crawford had picked up was a real rifle and that he didn't respond to commands to drop it.
A special grand jury concluded the police officers' actions were justified. The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating the shooting.[/ltr]

In a country where ALL policemen are armed, how stupid to ignore the police warning, there was only ever going to be one outcome, no matter haw sad that is!

Well not like me to be looking at it from a different angle.

Stupid, sad, silly whatever words are used I see it that a 12 year old is dead, a policemen will surely be affected and all because they all walk about over there thinking guns are a good thing.

America is proof that guns do not stop killings and crime, they escalate it.

Shows you just how endemic guns are in US when the 911 caller reported it was probably fake, but who would take a chance on finding out?
