|Gunned down: Tamir Rice, 12, was fatally shot by police on Saturday and passed away on Sunday|
An African American is killed by police.
Controlling the narrative, police release their version of events and state that they had no other alternative but to use lethal force.
Eyewitnesses, recordings, and indisputable facts counter the police narrative and expose glaring inconsistencies in their story.
The character assassination of the shooting victim and his family begins.
The officers are not punished for what they did.
The family and community are left in a state of grief—fueled by a lack of closure or justice.
Listen to how police described the fatal shooting of 12 yo Tamir Rice before they knew there was video. Then watch. http://t.co/PolvS2hkoO
