3 Officers Face Administrative Charges in Tamir Rice Shooting

Loehmann, a trainee, shot at Tamir, who was carrying an air pistol, within moments of arriving at the scene. “There is no question, and there has never been, that the death of Tamir Rice was tragic,” the statement reads. The officers are scheduled to have pre-disciplinary hearings January 30 with the Cleveland director of public safety and will have an opportunity to defend themselves, according to the charge letters. His charge letter indicates the second job was not approved. The officers could be suspended or fired if found guilty of the charges. “They don’t need to be police officers terrorizing the city,” she told CNN affiliate WJW. Loehmann is accused of lying on his Cleveland police application and Garmback faces possible sanction for the way he drove the car up to the scene where 12-year-old Tamir was shot. “Nevertheless, all agree that Officer Loehmann was not wrong in reacting the way he did. Loehmann shot Tamir on November 22, 2014, after he and Garmback responded to a 911 call claiming a person was pointing “a pistol” at people. The Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association issued a statement regarding Loehmann and Garmback, saying it is reviewing the charges in detail and will prepare defenses as necessary. It appears that the actual charges are created to discipline him, and perhaps discharge him, despite the fact that he did nothing wrong that day.”
The association called the charge against Garmback “disappointing.”
The third officer, Cunningham, was off-duty and working security at the recreation center at the time of the shooting, Cleveland Chief of Police Calvin Williams said Friday. Tamir’s mother, Samaria Rice, said the family wants Garmback and Loehmann fired. A grand jury in 2015 decided not to indict Loehmann and Garmback on criminal charges, and a federal wrongful death case filed by Tamir’s family against the city was settled in April 2016. The charges filed Friday against Officers Timothy Loehmann, Frank Garmback and William Cunningham include a use of force violation as well as administrative violations such as untruthful reports or employment histories. Three Cleveland police officers involved in the 2014 shooting death of Tamir Rice face administrative charges after a yearlong internal investigation, city officials said.. Tamir Rice is shown in a photo obtained by CNN. Cunningham is also accused of lying on a report about the shooting. ×

Burr and Warner said the committee will hold hearings examining Russian intelligence activity and interview senior officials within both President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump’s administrations about the matter, and will issue subpoenas if necessary. “We believe that it is critical to have a full understanding of the scope of Russian intelligence activities impacting the United States,” they said. It was known that intelligence panels in both chambers of Congress were tapped by Republican leaders to probe the hacking, but Friday’s announcement makes clear the scope and details about the review.

Police Arrest Suspected Planner in July Terror Attack on Bangladesh Cafe That Killed 23 People

Counterterrorism forces have arrested a man suspected of being a key planner of last year’s terror attack on a cafe in Dhaka, Bangladesh, a top police official said Saturday. Alam is alleged to be a highly ranked leader of a group called Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh, or JMB, a local terror group that authorities accuse of being responsible for the attack, though ISIS also claimed responsibility. Two other men thought to be main organizers behind the attack were killed last year. Though Bangladesh has dealt with terror attacks in the past, with secular bloggers, Hindu priests and others killed in cold blood, the July 1 cafe attack was of a much larger scale. Two police officers and 21 captives were killed in July when armed gunmen stormed an upscale cafe and took hostages. The assailants appeared to be “normal, regular guys,” and their target was the Holey Artisan Bakery in the city’s Gulshan district, one of Dhaka’s most affluent neighborhoods and a diplomatic enclave. JMB is a Sunni Muslim extremist group that has pledged its allegiance to ISIS. Bangladeshi-Canadian Tamim Ahmed Chowdhury was killed in August, and Abdur Rahman died in October after jumping off a fifth-floor balcony while trying to escape police. Another alleged attack planner, Nurul Islam Marzan, was killed in a shootout with police a week ago. It aims to transform Bangladesh into an Islamic state based on Sharia law. 23.810332
