Video Shows Cleveland Cop Shoot 12-Year-Old Within Seconds

Cleveland police have released surveillance video that shows a 12-year-old boy walking around and waving a pellet gun and then being fatally shot by a rookie officer seconds after he arrived on the scene, NBC News reported. The black-and-white video is grainy, and Tamir Rice's movements are hard to decipher at times. But he can been seen pacing on the sidewalk of Cudell Recreation Center, the silhouette of his Airsoft pistol plainly visible. A 911 caller, who was sitting in a nearby gazebo, told police several times that the weapon was probably a fake, but the dispatcher did not relay that information to the responding officers, referring to it only as "a gun," police tapes show. A grand jury will decide whether Officers Timothy Loehman, 26, and Frank Garmback, 46, will be charged over Rice's death. Read »

"Disrespectful": Michael Brown's Mom Slams Wilson

Lesley McSpadden, the mother of slain Ferguson teen Michael Brown, said Wednesday the first public comments from police officer Darren Wilson added "insult after injury," following a grand jury's decision not to indict the officer in the killing. Wilson's account "sounds crazy," Michael Brown Sr. said on NBC's "Today" show. It's "disrespectful," McSpadden explained. Wilson said in his interview that Brown was the instigator of the incident, reaching for Wilson's gun and charging at him. "For one, my son, he respected law enforcement,'' Brown Sr. said. "Two, who in their right mind would rush or charge at a police officer that has his gun drawn? It sounds crazy." Read »
