Sign the Petition to

Prosecutor Tim McGinty

Dear Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty,

I demand you request a special prosecutor to prosecute the tragic police killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice. For a number of reasons, the public has lost faith in your ability to ethically oversee this case.

There is more than enough evidence to criminally prosecute Cleveland Police Officers Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback, yet one year after Tamir's tragic killing you have not filed any criminal charges against either officer.

Tamir Rice posed no threat to law enforcement, but was brutally killed within seconds of Officer Loehmann and Frank Garmback arriving at the park where Tamir was playing. As he lay dying, neither officer gave Tamir CPR or first aid. This type of inhumane and discriminatory police violence has no place in Ohio.

I urge you to do what is necessary to secure justice for Tamir; appoint a special prosecutor immediately.

Thank you,

How this will help

If enough people take action we can create a groundswell of resistance that Prosecutor McGinty and other Ohio politicians cannot ignore.
