Tamir Rice's Killer Withdraws from New Job at Police Department

Ex-Cleveland police officer, Timothy Loehmann, withdrew his application to become an officer with the Bellaire Police Department.


The officer turned murderer of 12-year old Tamir Rice had applied and gotten a part-time police officer position with the Bellaire Police Department. Bellaire, Ohio is about 3 hours from Cleveland and borders Pennsylvania.

Bellaire Police Department Police Chief Richard Flanagan confirmed Loehmann’s withdrawal of his application but that he had given him a “second chance because he deserved it.”

He further elaborated: “He was cleared of any and all wrongdoing. He was never charged. It’s over and done with.”

With whom is it over and done Samaria Rice doesn’t get to see her son off to college nor will she have grandbabies due to an incompetent liar who opened fire on her son within 3 seconds of seeing him playing outside of a recreation center in the winter of 2014. Footage from the murder shows Loehmann exiting the car before it came to a full stop and shooting Tamir Rice. He died the next day. A grand jury failed to indict Loehmann.

Loehmann had lied about his work history and had been deemed “emotionally unstable.” According to his personnel records, released by the city of Independence, he was in the process of being terminated when Loehmann resigned in December 2012. Supervisors had described him as a recruit with a “lack of maturity” and “inability to perform basic functions as instructed” during a weapons training exercise.

Yet, he deserved a second chance. It looks like he should have never been in law enforcement.

“As of this afternoon, Timothy Loehmann has withdrawn his application in Bellaire,” Samaria Rice said during a press conference on Wednesday. “Hopefully, he will not be hired as a police officer by any other state.”
