I am not surprised. I said from the beginning that this was a trumped up charge. All you need to do is listen to the (real) 911 call about Rice pointing his gun at people in the park and scaring the bleep out of them. Tamir Rice is the only person responsible for his death.

It happens all the time with different outcomes.

Has it been proven that the cops lied about the warnings? Admittedly I missed that part.
You didn't see the video? He claimed to have gave him multiple warnings. He was there and out of his car shooting in a second.

They calmly walked right past him. The guy in the gazebo that called 911 just sat there while making the call. None of them were too concerned.

I did not see this video before. It's pretty clear he kept pulling the gun on people and then on the cops at the end.

They are still not up to his actual weight, which was 195 lbs. per his autopsy report.

He was allowed to resign before he was fired. The Cleveland police force hired an unstable individual and he went off as predicted by his earlier superiors.
Absolutely. And he lied.
