While folks are still dismayed by the dismissal of charges against the Cleveland police officer who shot and killed toy-gun-toting 12-year-old Tamir Rice, the authorities in Ohio have killed a kid just a year older than Tamir, named Tyree King:
Police in Columbus, Ohio say they were searching for robbery suspects when a 13-year-old boy pulled a gun out of his waistband. Police shot and killed the boy. The weapon was a BB gun with a laser sight.
Of course, Tyree is not here to tell his side of the tale, but we’ll see what happens with this one. Probably more of the same.
