#JUSTICE4TAMIRTOOLKIT from the Coalition Against Police Violence

#JUSTICE4TAMIRTOOLKIT 

On November 22, 2014, 12 year old Tamir Rice was playing on the playground at Cudell Recreation Center. It was part of his daily life. He was playing—kicking at the snow, throwing snow balls. Someone called 911 and even mentioned that it was probably a fake gun. 911 dispatcher failed to relay what the caller mentioned. Officer Timothy Loehmann shot Tamir Rice in .792 of a second. After shooting the boy, the officers failed to offer the boy any medical attention and then detained Tamir’s 14 year old sister, denying her the right to comfort her dying brother.

On March 2, 2015, the City of Cleveland blamed Tamir for his own death. Not the reckless behavior of the 911 dispatcher, not the officer who was deemed unfit for duty in 2012, but the 12 year old boy who had no warning.

It is time we stop being silent about the tragic and senseless murder of Tamir. It is time we demand justice and we can do it on the streets as well as from our homes. Please join us on March 23rd, 4 months following the passing of Tamir, we will use everything we got! Computers, cell phones, social media and demand justice for Tamir. Everything you need to be armed with is in this toolkit. Thank you!

Once you receive this toolkit, further instructions regarding changes, additions or modifications will be sent via text messaging. To receive updates, text CAPV to 77948.

JUST A BOY WITH A TOY

PURCHASE TOY GUN AND MAIL TO CLEVELAND POLICE DEPARTMENT

March 23rd

You may purchase one or many toy guns at the dollar or 99 cents store and mail anonymously to the Cleveland Police Department along with a print out of the next page in this toolkit. You will need to decipher when would be the best time to send the toy(s) in order for the CPD to receive them on March 23rd or thereafter. We prefer the 23rd, but if they are receiving them all that week, that is OK.

First District Police Station

3895 W. 130th
