Unfit for Duty: MUSC urges Bellaire Police Department to fire Tamir Rice’s killer, Timothy Loehmann
Monday, October 8, 2018
M.O.B.B. United for Social Change is deeply disturbed to learn that the police officer who shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice has been hired as part-time police officer in Bellaire, a village in southeastern Ohio. Tamir Rice was playing with a toy gun in a park near his home when Loehmann ruthlessly shot and killed him in November of 2014. Officer Loehmann was never criminally charged with Tamir Rice’s death, despite clear video evidence showing that he fatally shot Tamir Rice after 2 seconds of arriving to the park.
