Sheriff David Clarke slammed Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton Monday for politicizing the death of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy who was shot dead by a Cleveland police officer.
Rice was holding a toy pellet gun when he was shot by officer Timothy Loehmann at a playground in November 2014. Two separate reports released this week say the shooting was reasonable, thus seeming to clear the officer, according to Fox News.
Hillary Clinton, apparently ignoring the legal information in this case, seemed to be conclusively siding against the police, despite the new reports.
Clinton met with Black Lives Matter activists last week and on Friday, tweeted that “racism is America’s original sin.”
Clinton also sent out a message of support to Rice’s loved ones saying, “Too many black families are mourning the loss of a child.”
Sheriff Clarke accused Clinton of using the tragedy for political gain in his appearance on “The Kelly File.”
