RE: TAMIR RICE, 12 -- KILLED BY CLEVELAND POLICE

The Off-Duty Officer - Violated Policy; Suspended for 2 Days

Cleveland safety director Michael McGrath handed down a two-day suspension for police officer William Cunningham, who was working off duty without permission at the rec center, in a disciplinary letter dated March 10.

Cunningham had patrolled the rec center without notifying the department for four years. He did not have access to the security surveillance at the check-in desk and did not know Tamir had been playing in the park for hours when someone told him of a shooting.

Cunningham is the officer seen on the park surveillance camera restraining Tamir's teen sister on the ground and then handcuffing her and putting her in the back of the squad car next to where Tamir was bleeding to death.

Officers Loehmann and Garmback; Violated Policy; Disciplinary Actions Still Pending

Loehmann's disciplinary letter cites his failure to disclose in an application that the Independence Police Department, where he worked for six months, had placed a letter in his personnel file saying he had an 'inability to emotionally function.'

Garmback's disciplinary letter accuses him of driving too close to Tamir and failing to report the time of arrival at the recreation center.

Tamir's mom believes that anything less than dismissal from the force will be insufficient. She feels strongly that the fact the officers weren't criminally charged denied justice for her son.

Hmmm...So nothing in there about the cops lieing at first about how it went down before they knew about the video?

I didn't see anything about that in the disciplinary letters, Six.

But, it was that asshole Cleveland PD Union Rep, Steve Loomis, who reported to the press right after the shooting that the cops told him Tamir was at the gazebo table with a group of people brandishing a gun when they rolled right up on him.

The park surveillance was released a couple of days later showing Tamir sitting alone; no people or gun in sight.

So, it's quite possible to me that Loomis devised and floated that false narrative before he knew of the surveillance cam and there's no proof that the two officers actually told him that tale.
