Tamir Rice Shooter Fired From Police Department
The Cleveland police officer, who fatally shot 12-year-old Tamir Rice in 2014, has been fired from his job and his partner has been suspended.
Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with Tamir’s death.
Via The Grio:
Police Chief Calvin Williams announced the discipline Tuesday against officers Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback related to the shooting of the boy at a recreation center in November 2014 as he held a pellet gun.
Williams said Loehmann, who shot Rice, has been fired. Frank Garmback, who was driving the cruiser that skidded to a stop near the boy, has been suspended for 10 days.
Loehmann was fired for inaccurate details on his job application, not for the Rice shooting. Garmback was suspended for violating a tactical rule involving his approach to the gazebo where the boy was shot.
Sooooo, you can kill an innocent black child and keep your job, but you gotta go for lying about your previous position at Chipotle on your application?! Oh, okay…
