When the Cleveland police union endorsed Zack Reed for mayor last week, the city councilman Tweeted he was “extremely honored.”  That isn’t sitting well with Samaria Rice.  Her 12-year-old son, Tamir, had been playing at a park with an air pellet gun in 2014 when he was shot and killed by a Cleveland police officer. 

Samaria Rice says she doesn’t want Reed’s sympathy for Tamir's death.
