The Tragedy of Tamir Rice

Yeah, it's a tragedy alright.

It's a tragedy that the boy apparently reached into his waistband to pull out a toy gun. If you're a policeman and you see a black youth reaching "into his waistband," what else are you going to do?

It's terrible that this boy was killed, but it's not terrible there was no indictment. Frankly, it's one more example that the criminal justice system hasn't lost its sanity, like the leftists constantly haranguing law enforcement.

But for the far-left take, see Jelani Cobb, at the New Yorker, "Tamir Rice and America’s Tragedy."
