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.

The high-profile shootings of unarmed black men and children has shined a light on the need for better police training. As Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports, that’s why Ohio’s attorney general is rolling out a new simulation that can hone an officer’s decision-making skills.

Officers fire fake training guns during a new course created to help law enforcement practice for tense situations. Soon the state will make a whole kit of training equipment available for law enforcement agencies to check out, like a library book.
