“Experts” Find Tamir Rice Murder “Reasonable”

Oct 26, 2015

Two “experts” working for the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s office found the police shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice last November “reasonable.”

Rice was playing with a toy pellet gun in a park outside a Cleveland Recreation Center when a police car pulled up to him, and a cop got out of the car and shot and killed him immediately. Anyone can see the video on the internet. And no one who has seen it could possibly conclude that this shooting was “reasonable.”

These experts don’t tell us anything new about the murder of Tamir Rice. But they do show–very clearly–that there are always “experts” for sale!
