Samaria Rice, the mother of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, is renewing her call for peaceful demonstrations in wake of the mounting tension on policing and excessive force.
Tamir was fatally shot on Nov. 22 by a Cleveland police officer, after they received a report of a male with a gun outside of a Cleveland recreation center. The gun turned out to be an airsoft-type BB gun.
According to the police department, Officer Timothy Loehmann, 26, shot Tamir after they said he would not comply to three verbal commands and went for his weapon in his waistband.
His death was ruled a homicide on Dec. 12.
