On Friday during a press conference, the city of Cleveland announced that administrative and internal disciplinary charges were filed against the officers involved in the shooting and killing of Tamir Rice but didn't announce the specific charges. Frank Jackson, Chief Williams, deputy chief Wayne Drummond, and public safety director Mike McGrath stated that charge letters would be announced at a later press conference.
Frank Jackson stated: "As you know we've been conducting the administrative side of the investigation around the shooting in November 2014 of Tamir Rice. The criminal side has been completed and you also know there was a settlement on the civil side. The only thing left in regard to the procedure is that of the administrative side."
Below are the charge letters for the officers:
While something is better than nothing, the reality is that these officers should have been charged with murder and jailed for their crimes the way any other citizen would have been. It is a travesty that it even took over two years for this type of action to occur, and it is highly insufficient to the pain and suffering they have inflicted on this family. Justice still eludes this child and his family. I will provide more information as it becomes available.
