"We are just entering into a day and time that we should have had 100 years ago."
The murder of Tamir Rice a 12 year old boy in Cleveland, Ohio, murdered by a policemen deemed to be too unstable to handle a firearm by his previous police department is one of the most egregious murders in recent history.
The justification of this child's murder by the prosecutor is unconscionable even by America's standards.
Tamir never had a chance, as he was murdered no questions asked as the police pulled up to him. The prosecutor had the gall to say Tamir was big for his age, so that's why the police did not think he was a child.
The message sent is very clear and chills the heart of every Black person in America as it sends the message that no Black child is safe here from the racist brutality of police.
