thefreethoughtproject.com Cleveland, Ohio – Last month, we reported that a police officer shot a young boy for playing in a park with a toy gun just seconds after exiting his vehicle. The video footage to surface after the incident showed absolutely no restraint on the part of Cleveland patrol officer Timothy Loehmann, who fired the shot that killed young Tamir Rice. In the weeks following the murder, a number of disturbing details have surfaced showing that this tragedy could have been prevented. A quick look into the history of officer Timothy Loehmann, shows that he has a short and troubled past with police work. In fact, Loemann was actually terminated from his last job as a police officer, because they did not think that he was mentally capable, or mature enough for the job. He was let go by the City of Independence Police Department in December of 2012, and then was quickly rehired with the Cleveland Police Department in March of this year. Cleveland police said on Wednesday that conveniently, they never reviewed the Independence file and changed their policies to include checking publicly available records for potential hires. The termination from his previous job was tied to an emotional breakdown that he had at the firing range during training.
