The Black Caucus of the College Democrats of Massachusetts are deeply disappointed and outraged by the lack of action taken against Officer Leohmann and the Cleveland Police Department. From statements made to the press, it is clear that they do not see the problem at large, and are placing blame everywhere except for where it belongs. This lack of accountability is deeply concerning and highlights a larger issue facing this country. The senseless death of Tamir Rice is beyond tragic, and words alone cannot express our grief and sympathy to the family and community who have been affected. However, this tragedy has been all too common recently and we are demanding that justice be served to show that police brutality has no place in America.
