After grand jury whitewash in Tamir Rice killing

More police murders across the US

30 December 2015

The grand jury decision Monday not to bring charges against the two police officers who killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice as he played in a Cleveland park on November 24, 2014 was preceded Sunday night by the police killing of a 34-year-old man outside his house in Tempe, Arizona and followed Monday evening by the killing of a 28-year-old man on a street near his home in Suffolk, Virginia.

Tuesday morning, police shot and killed a 50-year-old woman in Santa Nella, California. There was also a non-fatal police shooting of a man in his Lakeland, Florida home.

Police officer Timothy Loehmann, 27, gunned down Rice at a playground picnic area as the child was playing with a toy pistol. He and partner Frank Garmback, 47, offered no aid for four minutes as Rice lay bleeding to death and threw to the ground his 14-year-old sister when she tried to come to her brother’s aid.

Loehmann and Garback were dispatched to the scene after a caller warned that there was a “male black sitting on a swing and pointing a gun at people,” though the caller added that the individual was “juvenile” and the pistol “probably fake.” A YouTube video, viewed more than 1.2 million times, captured the brutal killing and leaves no doubt that the police are guilty of murder.

Local prosecutor Timothy McGinty, whose task was to determine whether or not there existed reasonable grounds for a trial, instead worked from the beginning to exonerate the police. Loehmann and Garmback were allowed to make self-serving and unchallenged statements to the grand jury. McGinty also recruited pro-police “experts” to provide testimony and discredited before the jury experts provided by attorneys representing the Rice family.

“My family and I are in pain and devastated by the non-indictment,” Samaria Rice, Tamir’s mother, said in a statement issued Monday. “Prosecutor McGinty deliberately sabotaged the case, never advocating for my son, and acting instead like the police officers’ defense attorney… I pray and hope that the federal government will investigate this case.”

Citing McGinty’s abuse of the grand jury process, the Rice family on December 14 called on the federal Department of Justice to conduct an investigation. The DOJ issued a brief statement Monday saying that an investigation under the auspices of its local office would continue. To date, the Obama administration has not brought federal charges against a single killer cop. The White House offered no comment on Monday’s grand jury ruling.

Police have taken the repeated exonerations, often in the face of overwhelming evidence, as in the Tamir Rice murder, as a green light for more violence. As if to underscore the point, within 24 hours of the grand jury ruling, the list of Americans murdered by police grew four names longer.

* Late Sunday night, 34-year-old Sean Mould was shot dead by police outside of his house in Tempe, Arizona. His wife, Sitharath Sam, called police on a non-emergency number when Mould, who had no police record, became verbally abusive after drinking alcoholic beverages for several hours.

The two officers sent to the scene gave Mould “commands to drop” what turned out to be a pocket knife, according to Tempe Police Lt. Mike Pooley. Pooley claims Mould, who was white, then “continued going toward the officers, at which time one of the officers did fire at least two rounds at the suspect.”

This version of events was contradicted by Sitharath Sam. “All I did was hear, ‘put your hands up’ and a shot,” she said. “He was a nice person, he wasn’t a violent person. Now he’s dead and he shouldn’t be portrayed like he is out against the police or to kill the police. January 5 he’s going to turn 35, and he’s not going to be with us anymore.”

The officer who killed Mould has been placed on paid administrative leave.

* Also in Arizona, authorities on Monday released the name of a man shot dead by police outside a Phoenix police precinct two days earlier. Police claim that Lonnie Niesen, 41, was throwing “rocks or bricks” at a police vehicle. Niesen was shot dead when he “refused to obey police orders and instead turned and suddenly threw something at one of the officers, striking him in the hand.” Family members said that Niesen, who was white, had stolen alcohol on Friday and had made suicidal statements. The officer supposedly hurt by Niesen was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

* On Monday evening, police shot 28-year-old Corey Achstein a few blocks from his Suffolk, Virginia, home. He died hours later at a nearby hospital.

Two police responded to a 911 call claiming that Achstein, who was also white, had a gun and was threatening a group of teenagers. Officers ordered Achstein to the ground and then shot him, based on the “actions of the suspect and concern for safety,” according to an official statement on the killing.

Police have yet to claim that Achstein was actually armed, or even that he threatened them. Achstein’s family insists he did not own a gun and family members say they “would be shocked if he had one on him,” according to a local news report. A weapon was supposedly recovered at the scene, but a city official has admitted that “officers are working [to] determine if it is real or fake.”

The officers involved in the killing, James Babor and Cheryl Abrigo, have been placed on administrative leave. The city has so far refused to release footage from body cameras the police were wearing at the time of the killing.

Achstein’s uncle said the young man’s mother is in grief. “It’s real hard on my sister,” he said. “That’s her only child, and we can’t get any answers from the police department on what happened.”

* On Monday night, a police officer shot and wounded a man in the doorway of his Lakeland, Florida home. Police say they were responding to a request from a woman who wished to take personal items out of the house. According to claims put forward by police spokesman Sgt. Gary Gross, the man, whose identity has not been released, was told to drop a handgun police had seen him carrying inside his home after observing him through the window. When he answered the door still armed, Officer Paul Dunn, 46, shot the homeowner, who, as of this writing, remained in critical condition at an area hospital.

* Early Tuesday morning, a Merced County, California Sherriff’s deputy shot and killed a 50-year old woman, Siolosega Velega-Nuufolau, after she waved a kitchen knife “in a threatening and aggressive manner” at the deputy. Sheriff Vern Warnke separately claimed that Velega-Nuufolau, who was a military veteran, had charged the deputy. Velega-Nuufolau, who evidently suffered from mental illness, was pronounced dead at the scene. It was the third police killing in Merced County in 2015.

Just since Christmas Eve, 16 Americans have been killed by police. This brings the running total for 2015 to at least 1,193, up from 1,108 in 2014, the year Tamir Rice was killed, according to a tally kept by A separate count, kept by the Guardian newspaper, puts the number of dead at 1,127.

Persistent efforts have been made to portray the violence in purely racial terms, eliding factors such as growing social inequality, the militarization of the police, and the domestic impact of America’s endless wars overseas. But according to the Guardian count, 567 of those killed by the police were—like Mould, Achstein and Niesen—white. Nearly twice as many whites have been killed as the 292 African Americans, though, as a share of the population, blacks are killed at nearly 2.5 times the rate of whites, a ratio that roughly corresponds to the disparity in the black-white official poverty ratio.

Possibly, violence starting as racist anti-African American violence, may spread like cancer cells hurting other people as well. Like German nazi violence started against Jews, and then spread against Roma, Africans, Slavs, etc.

‘If black lives don’t matter, then eventually NO lives may matter’.

Tellingly, 27 percent of those killed in 2015 suffered—like Niesen and Velega-Nuufolau—from mental health problems.

The counts kept by and the Guardian are based on publicly known instances of police killings—in other words, cases where the police have been forced to admit they have killed an individual. No federal agency keeps a record of those killed by the police, and most municipalities do not require their police forces to report police killings to the FBI.

In a recent report, a regional Florida newspaper, the Daytona News-Journal, described the difficulties it faced in coming up with a list of people killed by police in the state for the years 2013 and 2014. “It took hundreds of public records requests, and combing through hundreds of media reports… to uncover how often police shot people in 2013 and 2014 in Florida,” the newspaper wrote. “Many agencies cooperated and turned over records, but others put up substantial barriers, charging hefty bills to provide the information and refusing to answer questions.”

The newspaper compiled a list of 162 fatal shootings in Florida in the two-year period, but wrote that “even that number is likely an incomplete picture because agencies don’t have to release records for cases that are still pending.”

12-year-old Tamir Rice killed, no indictment in Ohio, USA

This 28 December 2015 video from the USA is called NO INDICTMENT In Tamir Rice Case!

By Kim Bellware in the USA:

No Indictment For Cop Who Fatally Shot 12-Year-Old Tamir Rice

The decision came more than a year after the boy was killed while playing in a Cleveland park.

12/28/2015 02:07 pm ET | Updated 9 hours ago

An Ohio grand jury has declined to indict the Cleveland police officer who fatally shot Tamir Rice, an unarmed black 12-year-old, in 2014.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty announced the decision Monday afternoon, 401 days after rookie patrolman Timothy Loehmann shot Rice at a park in Cleveland. The grand jury also declined to indict veteran officer Frank Garmback, who responded to the scene with Loehmann, on charges of negligent homicide and dereliction of duty.

Tamir’s family criticized the grand jury decision and in a statement accused McGinty of “abusing and manipulating the grand jury process to orchestrate a vote against indictment.” …

In statements filed with the Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Office, both officers claimed they repeatedly yelled at Tamir to “show me your hands.” But surveillance video shows that Loehmann opened fire within two seconds of emerging from the police cruiser.

Jonathan Abady, an attorney for Tamir’s family, said Monday they were “saddened and disappointed” by the decision not to indict the officers, but not surprised. The family also renewed their calls for the Justice Department to make an independent investigation into the case.

“It has been clear for months now that Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty was abusing and manipulating the grand jury process to orchestrate a vote against indictment,” Abady said in the statement. “Even though video shows the police shooting Tamir in less than one second, Prosecutor McGinty hired so-called expert witnesses to try to exonerate the officers and tell the grand jury their conduct was reasonable and justified. It is unheard of, and highly improper, for a prosecutor to hire ‘experts’ to try to exonerate the targets of a grand jury investigation.”

(A timeline of the Tamir Rice shooting.)

Tamir’s family and their advocates have been highly critical of McGinty’s office during what they considered an unreasonably lengthy and biased investigation.

McGinty’s office released three expert reports over the past few months, all of which determined Tamir’s fatal shooting to be “reasonable.”

Critics claimed McGinty’s investigation was biased toward police, noting that his office hired people that included the police expert who testified at the trial of Michael Brelo, a Cleveland police officer who was cleared after he fired 15 shots into the car of two unarmed black motorists in an unrelated incident.

Lawyers representing Tamir’s family in a wrongful death suit against the officers and the City of Cleveland earlier this month released a report of their own that disputes the findings of the investigations commissioned by McGinty’s office.

The report from the Rice family’s expert said the shooting was “unreasonable” and that Loehmann reacted too quickly for there to be a “meaningful exchange” between the officer and Tamir before he was shot. …

The Justice Department said Monday it would continue its review of the case and “determine what actions are appropriate, given the strict burdens and requirements imposed by applicable federal civil rights laws.”

In May, the DOJ concluded an 18-month investigation into the Cleveland Police Department. Its scathing report found that officers in Cleveland routinely use unjustifiable force against not only criminals and suspects, but also innocent victims of crimes.

12-year-old Tamir Rice killed, ‘independent’ investigation not independent

This video from the USA says about itself:

STILL NO JUSTICE Months After Tamir Rice Was Murdered By Cleveland Police

4 May 2015

The investigation into the shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice in Cleveland is ongoing, Tamir was shot in November of 2014, and authorities are still investigating. Since the investigation is ongoing the officer who murdered Tamir still hasn’t been charged with anything. Cleveland has asked Tamir Rice‘s family to drop a civil lawsuit against the police department. Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur discuss this latest move by Cleveland city officials and going on to talk about the impact the killing has had on Tamir’s family. …

Prosecutor in Cleveland police killing hired “independent” investigators who favor law enforcement

15 October 2015

Information has come to light in recent days which indicates that Cuyahoga County prosecutor Timothy McGinty is seeking to whitewash the police killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice last November in Cleveland, Ohio.

Nearly one year since Rice’s death a secret grand jury impaneled by McGinty has yet to make a decision on charges.

Saturday night McGinty took the extraordinary step of publicly releasing two reports produced by supposedly independent experts which concluded that the shooting was “objectively reasonable.”

Both of the so-called outside experts who reviewed the killing, District Attorney S. Lamar Sims and retired FBI agent Kimberly A. Crawford, are themselves long time members of law enforcement and are well known to prosecutors as staunch defenders of the police.

Video of the police shooting, taken by a surveillance camera, refutes their conclusion and confirms that the young boy never posed a threat to the police officers or anyone else in the area. The video, which includes the minutes leading up to the shooting, shows the bored 12-year-old, playing with a toy gun in a nearly empty park on a cold and rainy November day.

Timothy Loehmann and his partner Frank Garmback arrived in their patrol car stopping within feet of Rice despite the fact that no one else was around. Loehmann exited his patrol car and shot the boy within two seconds. Neither officer made any effort to stop the bleeding or provide other medical assistance.

Sims, the senior chief deputy district attorney for Denver, Colorado who authored one of the reports, concluded that the Cleveland police officers’ actions were “objectively reasonable.”

However, Sims had already reached this conclusion when he appeared on Denver public television two months before he was hired by McGinty to investigate the legality of the Cleveland police officers’ actions.

“The community may react to facts learned later, for example, looking around the nation, say you have a 12- or 13-year-old boy, with a toy gun. We learn that later,” Sims told an interviewer last May.

“The question is, what did the officer know at the time, what should a reasonable police officer have known at the time when he or she took the steps that led to the use of physical force or deadly physical force?” he concluded.

Sims has a long history of justifying police violence. He is also listed as a contributing researcher in a report by the Denver District Attorney’s office that cleared Denver police in the shooting death of 17-year-old Jessica Hernandez this past January.

Hernandez was driving a stolen car at the time with four other teenagers inside. Police claim she ignored orders to stop, and hit an officer. The other teenagers say the officer was hit after Hernandez lost control of the car after being shot. The autopsy found that none of the shots were from close range.

The Denver DA’s report stated: “Hernandez chose to not comply with those orders. Perhaps she feared being caught driving a stolen car. Perhaps her judgment was impaired by marijuana and alcohol. We can draw these inferences from the facts. However, what is clear from the facts and needs no inference, is that her decisions created a very dangerous situation—not just to herself and to the officers, but also to her friends who were in the car with her.” No charges were filed against the officer who killed Hernandez.

Crawford, the author of the second report, is a retired Supervisory Special Agent with the FBI’s Legal Instruction Unit. Her report reads more as a defense motion to dismiss charges than an investigation for the prosecutor. She repeatedly sites court rulings that have expanded the power of the police to use deadly force even when there is no actual threat to themselves or others.

Crawford concludes her report saying, “use of deadly force falls within the realm of reasonableness under the dictates of the Fourth Amendment.”

She is well known for her strong views supporting the use of excessive violence by police officers. Local news station WKYC reports, “In a past case of police use of deadly force, Crawford’s opinion was rejected by the Department of Justice for being outside the law, ‘overly protective of law enforcement’ and going ‘too far to exonerate the use of force.’”

Lawyers for the family of Rice have denounced the two reports saying that they were produced and subsequently released to the public for the purpose of exonerating Loehmann and Garmback and set the groundwork for a decision by the grand jury not to file charges.

“It’s clear to the Rice family that these so-called experts were selected to present a point of view to defend the officer’s conduct,” Subodh Chandra, one of the attorneys representing the Rice family told The Guardian. The reports, he said had “tainted the grand jury process.”

Walter Madison, another attorney representing the family told RT that the prosecutor produced the reports to “make opinion early to soften the blow.”

“What he [McGinty] should be doing, as in any other grand jury, he should be looking to answer a simple question: ‘Is there probable cause that a crime has occurred?’ That’s it.”

One year since the murder of Tamir Rice, police who killed him are still free: here.

12-year-old Tamir Rice killing whitewash in the USA

The whitewash of Tamir Rice’s killing and the fight against police violence

13 October 2015

It is has been nearly one year since a police officer shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice while he was playing with a toy gun in a neighborhood park in Cleveland, Ohio. Criminal charges have yet to be brought against either of the officers involved in the killing: the shooter, Timothy Loehmann, and his partner, Frank Garmback.

This weekend the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s office published on its web site two supposedly independent reports which both conclude that the police murder of Rice was “objectively reasonable.”

The reports are transparent efforts to deny the obvious. Surveillance video shows that the police officers rolled up to the young boy in their squad car and opened fire in less than two seconds. Rice, who was struck once in the stomach, was left by the officers to bleed on the ground without any first aid for at least four minutes. He died the next day at the hospital.

The reports, prepared by a former FBI agent and a current district attorney at the request of the prosecutor, Thomas J. McGinty, were presented to a secret grand jury that has been impaneled to decide whether or not to bring charges against Loehmann and Garmback. The outrageous decision by McGinty to selectively release reports favorable to the officers has all the markings of an attempt to whitewash the crime and condition public opinion for an exoneration.

The likelihood of Rice’s killers being charged with a crime and put on trial is extremely low; if they are brought to trial, the odds of a conviction are even lower.

While police killings are a more than daily occurrence in the United States, with most going unreported in the media, prosecutions and convictions are extremely rare. A report by the Washington Post earlier this year found that, over the past decade, only 54 officers have been charged for a fatal shooting. Of these, only 11 have been convicted. In the last three years alone, nearly 3,000 people have been killed by police.

Among the most notable exonerations in recent months was the decision by a judge in May to acquit another Cleveland, Ohio police officer, Michael Brelo, of manslaughter charges in the deaths of two unarmed individuals who were killed in a barrage of more than 130 rounds fired into their car. Last month, a local prosecutor announced that Pasco, Washington police officers would not be charged for gunning down an unarmed immigrant worker, Antonio Zambrano-Montes, in February.

These actions followed the decisions not to charge Darren Wilson, the police officer who killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri in August 2014, and Daniel Pantaleo, the cop who choked Eric Garner to death in July of the same year.

The latest developments in the Rice case fit into a definite modus operandi of the ruling class as it seeks to tamp down social discontent in the face of unrelenting police violence.

After a police officer commits a horrific killing, public outrage finds expression in mass protests in which justice is demanded in the form of a trial and conviction. Democratic Party politicians make disingenuous statements of concern for the deceased and promise to make serious changes that will rein in the police violence. Finally, efforts are made to prepare public opinion to accept the exoneration of the killer cop, and the killing goes on.

In instances where protests threaten to escape the control of the Democratic Party and its auxiliary organizations, the state has responded with brutal repression—as in the military-style lockdowns in Ferguson following the killing of Michael Brown and in Baltimore, Maryland this spring after the killing of Freddie Gray.

In fact, the unending series of police killings has much deeper roots. It is the festering sore of a society riven by social inequality, presided over by a ruling class that wages unending war abroad and is increasingly utilizing the methods of war to deal with social tensions within the country. The police are a critical instrument of the corporate and financial elite in the defense of its social system, capitalism.

Young people are angry and outraged by an increasingly unbearable situation and are looking for a way to fight. They understand that a society that seeks to justify the police murder of a child and hundreds of others is morally bankrupt and completely irrational.

Film on unarmed people killed by Cincinnati, USA police

This 2012 video says about itself:

Cincinnati Goddamn Video Compilation

Cincinnati Goddamn” is a feature-length documentary about police brutality, judicial misconduct, and the power of grassroots activism in Cincinnati, Ohio. The film focuses on the murders of Roger Owensby, Jr., and Timothy Thomas at the hands of Cincinnati Police.

Set against the backdrop of a successful economic boycott and a federal investigation into the city’s policing practices, this poignant and powerful story of injustice is told through first-person accounts and cinema verité footage of the surviving families’ long-suffering battle for justice.

“Cincinnati Goddamn” brings audience attention to police brutality and social change

By Japera Benson

September 3, 2015

With the riots in Ferguson, Missouri and the debate of Black Lives Matter versus All Lives Matter, the documentary “Cincinnati Goddamn” came at an opportune time. “Cincinnati Goddamn” covers 15 unarmed black men killed by the Cincinnati Police Department, primarily focusing on the untimely deaths of Roger Owensby Jr. and Timothy Thomas. Though taking place from 1995 to 2001, its relevance is still seen 14 years later.

This music video is called Nina Simone – Mississippi Goddam. Recorded in the Netherlands in 1965.

The name of the film alludes to this Nina Simone song.

On Wednesday night, more than 1,000 people came to view the film at Ohio State’s Wexner Center for the Arts. The event was also live streamed at the Mansfield campus.

This film examined the negative relationship between the citizens of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Police Department. The film also covered the trials of the police officers charged with killing the men and the rioting that followed the officers’ acquittals. “Cincinnati Goddamn” followed the long-lasting impact of the victims’ families and, ultimately, the city of Cincinnati.

Following the film, there was a Q&A session with April Martin and Paul Hill, co-directors of the film; Iris Roley, a community activist and monitor of the Cincinnati Police-Community Collaborative Agreement; and Rhonda Williams, the director of the Social Justice Institute at Case Western Reserve University. Treva Lindsey — an OSU assistant professor in the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies — served as the moderator.

During the Q&A session, Williams said they are looking for ways to enforce “education instead of militarization of police forces.”

Martin said that she hopes for “the police to be part of, or at least understand the community they work in.” Martin added that if that doesn’t work, “(we) can start to police our own communities.”

“Cincinnati really started it all and it really goes hand-in-hand with the events happening in Ferguson, Missouri,” said Ginette Rhodes, a first-year in exploration, that was in attendance.

Rhodes is from the St. Louis area herself. She noted that she thought the film was very powerful and that it should be used as an educational tool to help people understand police brutality and affect change.

Hannah Sanders, a first-year in business and a Cincinnati native, was also in attendance.

“I was only 3-years-old when it happened, so I’ve grown up hearing about it, but I’ve never seen it like that,” Sanders said.

Co-director Hill said he foresees “Cincinnati Goddamn” to be available on DVD or online sometime next year.
