Euclid police officer Matthew Rhodes was not indicted by the largely White grand jury for fatally shooting Stewart, an unarmed Black, which is routine in Cuyahoga County, from the fatal police shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice by Cleveland police in 2014 to a host of other Cleveland police killings in the past five years, including Tanisha Anderson, Malissa Williams, Timothy Russell, and aspiring rapper Kenneth Smith.
"That was my son and we want justice," said Stewart's mother, Mary Stewart, to ClevelandUrbanNews.Com and KathyWrayColemanOnlineNewsBlog.Com editor-in-chief Kathy Wray Coleman at the city council sit-in rally last Monday at Euclid City Hall.
His sister, Tierra Stewart, told ClevelandUrbanNews.Com and the KathyWrayColemanOnlineNewsBlog.Com that "we need officer Mathew Rhodes off the streets."
Euclid is a middle class Cleveland suburb of some 50,000 residents that is roughly 26 percent Black.
An attorney for the Stewart family said Tuesday that the young man's family members had hoped grand jury proceedings would be fair, but to no avail.
