    Timothy Loehmann, Cop Who Shot Tamir Rice, Deemed Unfit For Policing 2 Years Ago

    Timothy Loehmann, Cop Who Shot Tamir Rice, Deemed Unfit For Policing 2 Years Ago

    "He could not follow simple directions, could not communicate clear thoughts nor recollections, and his handgun performance was dismal," the memo, available in full at Cleveland.com, states.

    According to the report, Loehmann became “distracted and weepy,” in part because of an issue with a girlfriend and uncertainty about his future. Polak criticized Loehmann for being “not mature enough in his accepting of responsibility or his understanding in the severity of his loss of control on the range,” and concluded the report with recommending that Loehmann be “released” from his position.

    The memo also cites several previous issues, including Loehmann removing a bulletproof vest at the wrong time because he felt too warm.
    Cleveland PD had better have their liability insurance paid up, as they will get hammered on this one.

    Very curious to see what decision their local GJ comes back with in this case.

    If the prosecutor even submits that evidence to a grand jury...they can control GJ outcomes a lot better than people realize. You do not even need admissible evidence at GJ's.

    My predication: No charges.

    The police had to mow down the 12 year old within 2 seconds of arriving on the scene. There was no other way.

    Are you kidding me? Cleveland PD's liability insurance is simply the Cleveland tax base. If you think that government employees are actually held responsible for their actions then you should be deemed unfit for voting.

    I know how a GJ works.

    My comments were obviously directed at the civil lawsuit that will surely happen here, as it should.

    Some municipal governments buy insurance, but usually they give up sovereign immunity in the areas for which they are insured. With as many employees as they have, they would be foolish not to have some insurance for when things like the supervisor in the sanitation department grabs his secretary's butt and such.

    A police officer killing a child is not like butt grabbing in the office - trust me on this one.
