POLICING: “This is the level of service that makes people very upset and distrustful of law enforcement.”

Reporters for cleveland.com obtained extended footage of the killing of Tamir Rice. The full video demonstrates police officers’ callous indifference to the boy they had wrongly shot. The two cops allowed him to bleed for several minutes; the first person to administer aid to Rice was actually an FBI agent who happened upon the scene while the officers stood around doing nothing.

Well, that’s not quite right. They did something—they intercepted Tamir’s sister as she ran to help him, knocked her on the ground, wrestled with her, held her down, handcuffed her, and placed her in the squad car a mere 10 feet away from her mortally wounded brother. And it was there that she waited, according to cleveland.com.

Disgraceful.
