Update: 12-year-old boy shot, killed by Cleveland Police officer at Cudell recreation center identified

 

CLEVELAND – A 12-year-old boy shot and killed by a Cleveland Police officer at a west side recreation center has been identified.

 

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Officer has identified the child as Tamir Rice, 12, of Cleveland.

 

Cleveland Police Patrolman Association president Jeff Follmer said the boy died at the hospital early Sunday morning.

 

The Cleveland Division of Police Use of Deadly Force Investigation Team is investigating the officer-involved shooting that happened on Saturday at about 3:30 p.m. at Cudell Recreation Center located at 1910 West Blvd.

 

Officers responded to the center for reports of a male with a gun. Police said witnesses reported that a male in the playground area was waving a gun and pointing it at people.

 

A 911 call to emergency dispatchers has been obtained by newsnet5 and the caller states a child is “pulling a gun in and out of his pants and pointing it at people.”

 

The caller goes on to say, “It’s probably fake.”

 

The man described the child as black, wearing a camouflage hat and a grey jacket with black sleeves.

 

[You can hear the 911 tape in the video below. WARNING: The recording contains some offensive language.]

 

The 911 caller says the gun is “probably fake, but it’s scaring the shit out of me.” He also says that the boy was black, and was sitting on a swing playing with the gun.

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – Cleveland Police are investigating after an officer-involved shooting at a Cleveland rec center on Saturday afternoon.

 

Cleveland EMS says a 12-year-old boy was shot and taken to MetroHealth Medical Center with serious injuries. According to his mother, Samaria Rice, the boy is now in critical condition after being shot in the stomach. He is currently in surgery.
The shooting happened around 3:30 p.m. at Cudell Rec Center located at 1910 West Boulevard. The facility has been taped off while units investigate, including the Cleveland Division of Police Use of Deadly Force Investigation Team.
Cleveland Police say officers responded to a radio assignment outside of the rec center for a male with a gun. Preliminary information reveals that witnesses reported a male was in the playground area of the center, waving a gun and pointing it at people.

 

Police say when officers arrived, they located the suspect and advised him to raise his hands. However, the suspect did not comply with the officers’ orders and reached to his waistband for the gun. Shots were fired and the suspect was struck in the torso.

 

“The young man had the weapon in his waistband. He pulled the weapon out. One of our officers fired two shots, striking the young man,” said Deputy Chief Ed Tomba with Cleveland Police.

 

Tomba said the boy did not make any verbal threats towards police, and there was no confrontation. The boy did not point the gun at officers

 

Further information from police reveals the weapon was an “airsoft” type replica gun, resembling a semi-automatic pistol, with the orange safety indicator removed.

 

According to police, one officer was transported to Fairview Hospital for treatment of an ankle injury

 

The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office was on scene for this investigation, which is ongoing. Police say both officers involved will be placed on administrative leave, as is protocol in officer-involved shooting incidents.
According to Rice, they live across the street from the rec center. She says two young men came to her residence to say her son was shot. When she ran over to the scene, police would not let her through. Rice says police told her the boy had a gun and that he was shot by police.
However, Rice says her son did not have access to a gun in the home. She says if he did get a gun, it would have had to have come from a friend or someone on the street.
She says she still does not understand why her son was shot.

Cleveland Police Shot And Killed A 12-Year-Old Boy Carrying A Fake Gun In A Playground

 

The boy had an “airsoft” toy gun with the orange indicator removed, said police.He was in critical condition on Saturday night and died early Sunday morning, an official at the MetroHealth Medical Center confirmed to BuzzFeed News.

 

On Saturday afternoon, Cleveland police shot and killed a 12-year-old boy in a playground after mistaking his “airsoft” toy gun as a real weapon, an official at the MetroHealth Medical Center confirmed to BuzzFeed News.

The boy was shot in the stomach and torso after police responded to reports that a young black boy was waving a gun in the playground of a recreation center. Police say they asked the boy to drop his weapon, but he instead reached for the BB gun.

Initially wounded, the boy went into surgery on Saturday night, the police said in a statement. His condition deteriorated overnight, and he died on Sunday morning in MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland.

 

The two officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave.

 

“The preliminary information reveals that witnesses reported that a male was in the playground area of the center, waiving a gun and pointing it at people,” police said.

 

“Upon arrival on scene, officers located the suspect and advised him to raise his hands. The suspect did not comply with the officers’ orders and reached to his waistband for the gun. Shots were fired and the suspect was struck in the torso.”

 

The “airsoft” replica toy gun shoots pellets in a similar fashion to a BB gun. Cleveland police reported that an orange indicator meant to distinguish the toys from real guns had been removed.

 

Police said the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office are opening an investigation into the shooting.

Exactly when does this shit stop? Remember the days police used tasers to disable potential threats? Why does a Cleveland Ohio cop gun down a 12 year old kid on a PLAYGROUND who happened to be holding a TOY BB GUN without being 5000% certain it’s A REAL weapon and NOT A TOY? Before YOU give a dumbass answer, what if this 12 year old boy, who was BLACK, was YOUR son?

United States Mid Term Elections, 2014

Issues

Unlike some other elections, the 2014 election has lacked a “dominant national theme,” with no one issue standing above the others. Some of the major issues of the election include income inequality, net neutrality, the effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (commonly referred to as “Obamacare”), and immigration.

 

The environment is also a major issue in the election. Although it generated much debate in early 2014, the Keystone Pipeline ultimately received little attention in the election, with environmentalists instead focused on fighting climate change and supporting the EPA’s proposed regulations on greenhouse gas emissions.

 

According to the political commentator Stuart Rothenberg, foreign policy crises in the Middle East, Ukraine, and Russia are likely to hurt the Democratic Party’s chances in 2014.

 

Federal elections

 

Congressional elections

Senate elections

All seats in Senate Class II will be up for election. Additionally, special elections will be held to fill vacancies in the other two Senate Classes.

 

House of Representatives elections

All 435 voting seats in the United States House of Representatives will be up for election. Additionally, elections will be held to select the delegates for the District of Columbia and four of the five U.S. territories. The only seat in the House not up for election will be the Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico, who serves a four-year term.

 

On March 11, there was a special election for Florida’s 13th congressional district.

 

State elections

 

Gubernatorial elections

Elections will be held for the governorships of 36 of the 50 U.S. states and three U.S. territories.

 

Local elections

 

Numerous elections will be held for officeholders in numerous cities, counties, school boards, special districts and others around the country.

 

Mayoral elections

 

Various major American cities will hold mayoral elections in 2014, including the following:

 

  • San Jose, California: Incumbent Chuck Reed is term-limited out of office. A primary election was held on June 3, and a run-off will be held on November 4.

A Mother’s Mission: The Shooting of Milton Hall

 

Published on Oct 27, 2014

Police officers in Saginaw, MI fired more than 45 shots at Jewel Hall’s son Milton. Despite abundant evidence that officers showed a reckless disregard for Milton’s life, the U.S. Justice Department did not charge any of the officers responsible for the killing.

 

In Washington D.C., the ACLU of Michigan is playing Jewel Hall’s testimony at a hearing before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights on “Reports of Racism in the Justice System of the United States.” Learn more at http://www.aclumich.org/MiltonHall

Eight Police Officers Fired 46 Times at My Mentally Ill Son for Holding a Pen Knife

 

By Jewel Hall Police Brutality

 

The following is an excerpt from an interview with Jewel Hall conducted by the ACLU of Michigan about the killing in 2012 of her son Milton by eight police officers. Parts of her interview appear in the video below, which also includes footage of the police killing Milton. Today the ACLU of Michigan is presenting this video at a hearing about racial disparities in the U.S. criminal justice system before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, which is part of the Organization of American States. The county prosecutor declined to bring charges against the officers involved, and earlier this year, the Department of Justice also declined to bring charges against them. The interview has been lightly edited for clarity.

 

Milton was a homeless, mentally ill African-American man, who was born on April 25, 1963, in Saginaw, Michigan. He was a community worker, and he was always there speaking out for those whom he considered the weak, for those who did not have the strength to speak for themselves.

 

He had a mental disability that became apparent as a young adult, from when he was probably 24 or 25. But in spite of this, he lived his life independently and with freedom.

 

He managed his own affairs, and that I supported and understood.

 

As long as he was on his medication and all, he did fine. It was when he wasn’t on his medication that he was impatient. He’d sometimes become intolerant. But when he was on his medication, he maintained.

 

He always would say everybody has equal rights. That was one of his songs that he sang all the time. So he exposed violations and campaigned for redress for people that he thought were victims.

 

Milton took action to ensure and promote equal rights, and that was part of his training that he got from working with Rosa Parks. He was always addressing institutional racism. I admired him for that.

 

Being an avid reader and a researcher, he was knowledgeable about oppression, particularly violence towards poor people, people of color , the homeless, and those who struggled with mental illness.

 

For him to be shot at 46 times and hit 14 times by all white policemen, it really raised questions in my mind. How they circled him and assassinated him. One policeman, after he was on the ground, turned him over, handcuffed him, and put his foot on his back.

 

 

His blood running down the street like water. And he wasn’t a threat, I mean, he had a little pen knife. He had no idea that those policemen would do that to him.

 

To have eight people stand in front of one human being and shoot at him 46 times and hit him 14 times – it’s been devastating to our family. It was devastating to the community, to everybody. And justice still has not been served.

 

When you have the U.S. government go in and look at Milton’s case for four or five months and then come out and say, “Well, it wasn’t intentional.” To shoot at somebody 46 times and it wasn’t intentional? It has given me a commitment for the little time that I have left to work with parents whose kids have been similarly killed.

 

What needs to change is how police deal with situations like the one that ended in my son’s death. The elected leaders and community leaders must address conditions that allow police to use excessive and deadly force with impunity.

Footage shows homeless black man Milton Hall being shot at 46 times by police in the US

By LIZZIE DEARDEN & The Independent:

 

Graphic footage has emerged showing a homeless man being shot and killed by police in the US who fired a barrage of 46 bullets as he held a penknife.

 

Milton Hall, who was mentally ill, was surrounded by eight officers training their guns in a shopping centre car park in Saginaw, Michigan, in July 2012.

 

The 49-year-old had been arguing with police after an alleged altercation with a shop assistant for several minutes and the video shows him refusing an officer’s demand to put down the knife.

 

After a tense stand-off, he appeared to step forward and police opened fire.The footage, taken by a bystander, shows Mr Hall fall down almost immediately and lie unmoving on the ground.

 

He had been shot 14 times.

 

As he lies bleeding, the officers are seen attempting to handcuff his lifeless arms and dragging his body along the ground, with one officer appearing to kick his back.

Shocked onlookers can be heard shouting at police after the shooting, with one asking: “Why did they have to shoot him so many times?”.

 

The death of Mr Hall, who was black, at the hands of white police officers sparked protests and calls for the police who shot him to face criminal charges.

 

But the county prosecutor and Department of Justice declined to bring charges against them, accepting the that the action was justified in the face of what they felt was a threat.

 

Mr Hall was “known” to authorities for committing previous offences, a police spokesperson said at the time, but his family said he had only committed minor, non-violent crimes.

 

His mother, Jewel Hall, described her son’s death as “an assassination”, by a “firing squad dressed in uniforms”.

 

In an interview with the American Civil Liberties Union, who released the latest footage, she said Mr Hall fought for equal rights and worked with Rosa Parks, the famous civil rights activist whose refusal to give up her seat for a white bus passenger in 1955 was one of the key events in the civil rights movement.

 

“His blood [was] running down the street like water,” Mrs Hall said. “And he wasn’t a threat, I mean, he had a little pen knife.

 

“He had no idea that those policemen would do that to him…justice still has not been served.”

 

Mrs Hall is now working with other families bereaved by police shootings and campaigning for changes to laws governing the police use of “deadly force”.

 

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Nitorioussoapbox

 

The words escape me when it come to comprehending how human beings can treat another human beings in this manner. Unarmed or not, hell Milton Hall could have been holding an AK-47, just like the Aurora theater shooter was holding, does he deserve to be shot at 46 times being hit a total of 14 times for holding a penknife? Just so you know, the Aurora theater shooter, ‎James Eagan Holmes, was not shot or shot at…..after massacring 12 people and injuring 70 others. James Eagan Holmes dressed in tactical clothing, set off tear gas grenades and shot into the audience with multiple firearms. But Mr. Holmes was caucasian. And mentally ill. Mentally ill exactly as was Mr. Milton Hall.

 

Mr. Holmes was arrested and NOT FIRED UPON. Mr. Holmes is caucasian. Mr. Hall WAS Black.

 

And yet, our twice dully elected President Of The United States, Barack Hussein Obama, is more concerned with hugging nurses who have overcome the Ebola virus than addressing this epidemic of racist caucasian law enforcement “professionals” executing unarmed Black males. We Have NOT Overcome.

If Barack were running for dog catcher, he’d NOT get my vote. The administration AND The Department Of Justice are a joke.
