A chapter closed today on one of the most high-profile police shootings ever to happen in Cleveland.
More than 2 and a half years after 12-year-old Tamir Rice was killed on the city’s near west side, the officers at the center of it were finally disciplined.
It followed months of investigating by the Cleveland Police Department’s critical incident review committee.
“The officers did not violate any rules, with the exception of failing to notify our communication control section, which is police radio, of their arrival time at the Cudell Recreation Center,” Deputy Chief Wayne Drummond said.
Yet the investigation reached other conclusions too.
First, it found that Officer Frank Garmback, who drove within feet of Rice, approached the scene wrong and should have stayed back.
Second, it found that Officer Timothy Loehmann, who shot and killed the boy, lied on his job application.
