Mayor Jackson and Langhenry both issued apologies for the language used in that response, calling it insensitive and written in language used by lawyers. 12-year-old Tamir Rice was playing with a pellet gun outside a Cleveland rec center on Nov. 22, 2014.Officer Timothy Loehmann responded to a report of someone with a gun at that scene. Surveillance video showed Loehmann shot Rice within two seconds of his car stopping.

The City of Cleveland filed a 41-page document in response to a lawsuit filed by Rice's family.

In it, the city said Rice's death was caused by his failure to "exercise due care to avoid injury."

"There's 1.7 seconds and there's no indication that this officer or these officers even gave the child a chance to comply," said Walter Madison, the family attorney. The city also argued the "plaintiff's injuries, losses and damages complained of were directly and proximately caused by their own acts, not this defendant."

Thicker hair, clearer skin and stronger nails can be yours without spending a lot of money.

In fact, if you're hitting the grocery store this week, there are some foods you may want to add to your list to boost your beauty.

If you're going gray a little early, it could be a lack of copper. Registered Dietitian Carolyn Brown says go for shitake mushrooms.

"Shitake mushrooms are one of the highest sources of copper, which is crucial for pigment. If you're going salt and pepper a little bit too early, it will definitely help," says Brown.

You can also try shitake tea which can boost your immune system and your energy.

If you've spent too much time in the sun, and have damaged your skin, sea buckthorn berries contain Omega-7, which can help repair your skin and boost collagen production.

If you have weak nails and need help with hair growth, eat some eggs. The yolk contains Biotin.

For itchy, dry skin, try turmeric. You can put the brightly colored spice in your tea or food. It's also a great anti-inflammatory and helps with sore muscles.

"Cod liver oil is a great source of Omega-3's and so are chia seeds and walnuts if you're not on the fish bandwagon. And Omega-3's really help with cell rejuvenation and are going to keep that skin looking plump and very hydrated this time of year," says Brown.
