The family of Tamir Rice—the 12-year-old boy shot to death by police in November—will not drop their civil suit against the city of Cleveland, despite a request from officials who say police are finishing their investigation. In a court filing, lawyers say Rice’s mother, Samaria, “has since been forced to move to a homeless shelter because she could no longer live next door to the killing field of her son.” Samaria called for accountability for his death at a press conference Monday. “Please protest peacefully and get justice for our son,” she said. The Rice family has not yet buried Tamir because they say they are unsure if further medical examinations will be necessary.
