Statement in response to the City of Cleveland's filing of a probate-court claim for $500 against the estate of Tamir Rice for EMS services

The Rice family is disturbed by the city's behavior. The callousness, insensitivity, and poor judgment required for the city to send a bill—its own police officers having slain 12-year—old Tamir-is breathtaking. This adds insult to homicide. The Rice family considers this a form of harassment.
