    CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio - The city of Cleveland has settled an excessive force and wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family and estate of 12-year-old police killing victim Tamir Rice for $6 million, likely the largest of its type in city history.

    Federal District Court Judge Dan Polster approved the unprecedented settlement that has the stamp of approval of Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, the city's three-term Black mayor.


    It comes as the 2016 Republican National Convention heads to Cleveland this July.


    Rice's mother, Samaria Rice, will get $250,000 before attorneys fees, his father, "TR,"  will also get $250,000, and the Black boy's estate will receive $5,500,000.00, with much of that money likely going to the family too, also absent legal fees and administrative costs.

    According to court documents, the city will pay $3 million of the $6 million in 2016 and $3 million in 2017.


    Cleveland attorney Subodh Chandra, and the New York-based law firm of Emery, Celli, Brinckerhoff & Abady represent Rice's estate and his mother and father in the litigation.


    " Although historic in financial terms, no amount of money can adequately compensate for the loss of a life," said Chandra. "Tamir was 12 -years -old when police shot and killed him—a young boy with his entire life ahead of him, full of potential and promise."

     

    Chandra said that the problem of police violence, especially in communities of color, is a crisis plaguing the nation.


    "It is the Rice family's sincere hope that Tamir’s death will stimulate a movement for genuine change in our society and our nation’s policing so that no family ever has to suffer tragedy such as this again, " said Chandra.

     

    The case was settled without any admission of guilt by any of the parties, including the city and the two White cops involved in the deadly 2014 shooting, rookie Timothy Loehmann, who pulled the trigger, and his partner, veteran police officer Frank Garmback.


    Both cops escaped grand jury indictments late last year after Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty, who lost reelection to Michael  O'Malley in the Democratic primary, fixed the case for police, including handpicking law enforcement experts.

    Greater Cleveland community activists are calling for McGinty to resign or be removed from office behind his mishandling of the Rice grand jury and several other Cleveland police deadly force cases in which he successfully lobbied the grand jury against indictments. (As to the demand by greater Cleveland community activists for McGinty to be removed from office and indicted, CLICK HERE TO READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE AT CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, OHIO'S LEADER IN BLACK DIGITAL NEWS ).


    The Rice tragedy  has gained national attention coupled with local and country-wide protests, a symbol of the unrest around police killings of Black men and boys, including  Freddie Gray in Baltimore,  Eric Garner in New York, and Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

    CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio-Greater Cleveland grassroots community activists are again calling for embattled Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty, who was ousted in the March Democratic primary by sole opponent Michael O'Malley, to resign before his term is up in January for alleged malfeasance in office and likely violations of the Ohio Lawyer's Professional Code of Responsibility. (Editor's note. No Independent and no Republican ran in the race for county prosecutor this year).

    "Tim McGinty has got to go, and he needs to go immediately and without question," said community activist Al Porter of Cleveland, president of the local grassroots group Black on Black Crime Inc. and a member of the Black Man's Army.

    Activists also want a special prosecutor on all cases before the grand jury involving police , as either accusers or those subject to grand jury proceedings themselves, since the Tamir Rice debacle,  and a state law that permits people facing indictments on criminal charges the due process opportunity to testify before the grand jury like police.

    And some activists want McGinty removed from office and himself indicted on public corruption charges, including documented grand jury tampering in cooperation with some Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas judges, some 34 of whom occupy the the general division common pleas court that serves Ohio's largest county, a county that includes the city of Cleveland and is roughly 29 percent Black.

    At the core of McGinty's humiliating demise is his mishandling of grand jury proceedings relative to the Cleveland police killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, and the acquittal last year by Common Pleas Judge John O'Donnell  of Michael Brelo, a since fired Cleveland cop who gunned down unarmed Blacks Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell in 2012 while slinging 49 bullets. (Editor's note: Twelve other non- Black Cleveland cops, who together fired the remaining 137 shots, escaped grand jury indictments per McGinty's recommendation to the largely White grand jury).

    McGinty has angered the Black community, and was afraid to campaign in Black areas of Cleveland after he shielded the the two White police officers involved in the Rice's shooting death, Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garner, from indictments. He did this in part by handpicking law enforcement experts to testify for police before the grand jury, reports he also made public in violation of state grand jury laws.

    Other Cleveland police deadly force cases where police have escaped prosecution in the last three years or more with McGinty's help include Brandon Jones, rapper Kenneth Smith, Danielle Ficker, and Tanisha Anderson.

    Anderson's case was removed from his purview due to a conflict of interest and handed to Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine.

    Activists want O'Malley to assume the prosecutor job immediately, given the illegalities under McGinty's leadership, including tainting grand juries for police and against the Black community.

    "Our demand for Mr. McGinty to resign and for a special prosecutor, particularly on all police cases in Cleveland and in the suburbs, is not because he lost reelection with our help, but because of what has transpired while he has been in office," said Porter.

    A former common pleas judge and county prosecutor since 2012, McGinty, public records show, is parading racist and corrupt greater Cleveland White cops before grand juries and getting indictments in secret against his enemies, and Blacks who generally are, at his insistence, denied an opportunity to testify before the grand jury in the bogus cases. And this is by design, sources said.

    "He should have been gone," said longtime community activist Ada Averyhart, 81 and of Cleveland. "We want this addressed by the Ohio State Legislature and under the court-monitored consent decree for police reforms between the city of Cleveland and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).

    Averyhart said that McGinty, who is White, gets away with his malfeasance because Black leaders and elected officials will not stand up for the community in the manner necessary to deal with the problem, and other legal system problems.

    An activist speaking on condition of anonymity said that McGinty is "racist, corrupt and mentally unhinged."

    Data also show that Blacks are disproportionately and sometimes maliciously indicted in Cuyahoga County, and often with McGinty's help.

    He has allegedly promised police across the county that he will help them get as many erroneous indictments as possible before he leaves office, an issue that activists say needs to be legally dealt with, and right away.

    His enemies, say sources, mainly Blacks that opposed him for reelection or otherwise, are the prime targets.

    A former first assistant county prosecutor and former Cleveland councilman O'Malley quit his job as Parma safety director to campaign against McGinty and has promised to do right by the Black community and others.

    In the Tamir Rice case in particular, the county prosecutor violated protocol, and the law, says 11th Congressional District Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge, a licensed attorney who supported O'Malley for prosecutor with help from Cleveland NAACP President Michael Nelson Sr,  Black activists, and Black Cleveland area clergy led by the Rev. Eugene Ward.

    Pierre Napper, 74 and a Maple Heights resident, and Valerie Robinson, 78 and a resident of Cleveland Heights, said also that McGinty should resign,  with Nappier adding that "McGinty's continuance as a prosecutor is an indictment against the Black community."

    James, Love and Irving combined for 81 points in Sunday's pivotal game.

    The Cavs outscored the Pistons 32-23 in the fourth quarter, and when it counted most.

    James posted 22 points and 11 assists, Irving, had 31 points and six assists, and Love finished with 28 points and  two assists.

    Love had an exceptional game with 10-of-22 from the field and added four three pointers, two of them during the fourth quarter.

    It was being resilient, " Irving told reporters after the game on the team win. "In the playoffs a win is a win."

    Irving said that "all that matters now is winning."

    Cleveland lost the championship last year to the Golden State Warriors with both Love and Irving out with injuries, Love missing the entire series and Irving existing in Game 1 of the NBA Finals with a knee injury.

    The Cavs clinched the Eastern Conference's No 1 seed on April 12 with a 109-94 win over the Atlanta Hawks and, in turn, garnered home-court advantage for the playoffs.
