New footage has emerged from the police killing of 12 year-old Tamir Rice, showing the cops tackling his sister to the ground when she ran to the scene of her brother’s shooting.
Tamir Rice was gunned down by Cleveland Police in November of last year while he was holding a toy gun on a playground.
Cleveland.com obtained the nearly 30-minute video after a battle with city officials who initially refused to release it.
The events in question happen in the first minute-and-a-half of the video, where Rice’s 14 year-old sister can be seen running towards her brother before being tackled – by both cops – twice. She was then handcuffed and placed in the back of the patrol vehicle, where she could clearly see her brother face-down bleeding in the snow.
“This has to be the cruelest thing I’ve ever seen,” Walter Madison, the attorney representing the Rice family, told Cleveland.com.
“This is the level of service that makes people very upset and distrustful of law enforcement,” he added.
