By  |  0 Comments

The family of a 12 year old gunned down by Cleveland Police is “outraged” at extended video released by investigators. The footage shows the unfolding of Tamir Rice being fαtally shοt by police after he waved an airsoft gun.

According to the family, the video not only confirms what they already know, but also shows the dying boy’s sister being “manhandled and tackled” instead of allowed to comfort her dying brother.

“The extended version of the Tamir Rice shooting video released this morning by the Cleveland Police Department fully supports the initial account provided by the Rice family,” wrote the family in a statement.

“This video shows in crystal-clear HD that the responding officers acted inappropriately and recklessly, both in how they handled the shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice and the events that immediately followed,” it continued.

According to the family, however, the new footage goes to the heart of how Cleveland officers mishandled the incident.
