Pictured is Samaria Rice, the mother of 12-year-old Cleveland police fatal shooting victim Tamir Rice during a press conference last month as she and her attorneys called for Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty  to step aside after he  hired handpicked experts allegedly to exonerate police from a grand jury indictment on criminal charges.  McGinty who is White, pro-police and a former common pleas judge, last week saw fit to publicly attack this grieving Black mother, angering both Blacks and Whites and community activists that want to see justice in the case. A county grand jury is currently hearing the  matter for possible criminal charges against the two White Cleveland cops involved in the deadly shooting.
