The citizens of Cleveland and people all across the United States are still outraged that the Cayuga County Prosecutor's office refuses to bring charges to officers that shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice.
Hundreds of people showed up at the home of District Attorney Tim McGinty to peacefully protest against the prosecutor because he failed to indict the two cops. Demonstrators showed up with picket signs and then laid on the ground in front of his home for four minutes, the duration of time Tamir was left unattended after being shot down.
Protesters call for a federal investigation of the murder and made it clear they don't want McGinty re-elected. LaTonya Goldsby said "Tamir's spirit can't rest until Timothy McGinty is out of office."
Video shows officer Timothy Loehmann and his partner Frank Garmback pulled up only two seconds before firing the fatal shot at Tamir.
A spokesman for McGinty, named Joseph Frolik, said in a statement to a news outlet via email “Every citizen has an absolute right to protest, and the death of Tamir Rice was clearly a monumental tragedy".
