Extended Video Of Tamir Rice Shooting Shows Officers Tackling Sister Running Towards Body


An extended version of the surveillance footage showing Cleveland police shooting and killing 12-year-old Tamir Rice was released by city officials Wednesday.

The footage shows officer Frank Garmback tackling Rice’s 14-year-old sister, who can be seen running into frame towards the body of her younger brother.

Knocking her to the ground, Garmback, with the help of another officer, handcuff and detain the girl.

The teen can be seen struggling as officers put her in the back seat of a patrol car parked right next to where her brother lay bleeding on the snowy ground.

Patrol officer Timothy Loehmann shot Tamir in the abdomen within two seconds of a patrol car stopping near the boy on Nov. 22. He died the next day.

Loehmann, a rookie, and his training officer and the driver of the patrol car, officer Garmback, had responded to a report about a man with a gun.

A police union official has said the officers thought the gun was real and that they didn’t know Tamir, who was 5 feet 7 and weighed 195 pounds, was so young.

Walter Madison, an attorney for the family, called the treatment of the 14-year-old sister, who he would not name, “the cruelest thing I’ve ever seen on video.”

He also criticized the officers for not providing Tamir with medical attention. An FBI agent on a bank robbery detail nearby arrived about four minutes after the shooting and began first aid.

Requests to city officials for comment made by Police State daily were not returned.

The city last week turned over the investigation of the shooting to the Cuyahoga County sheriff’s department.

Prosecutors are expected to present the case to a grand jury to determine if criminal charges should be filed against the officers involved.
