Statement regarding Rice family grand-jury testimony in the criminal investigation of the officers responsible for the death of Tamir Rice

Today, Samaria Rice and two of her children had the opportunity to tell a grand jury about the horror they experienced on November 22, 2014, when Cleveland police officers rushed upon and shot their beloved son and brother Tamir Rice.

Ms. Rice told the grand jury about how she learned about the police shooting of her 12-year-old son and what a gentle, loving, and kind soul her child was to his family and friends.

She had the opportunity to ask the grand jury to consider whether it could possibly be "reasonable" or "justifiable" for officers to speed across the grass when driveways were nearby, rush up to Tamir, and shoot him immediately.

She believes that the answer is plainly no, and hopes and prays that the grand jury agrees that there is probable cause to indict the officers and hold them accountable for her son's death.
