Tamir Rice’s Mother & Cleveland Protesters Upset At Lebron James

Lebron James supports Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner but when it came to Tamir Rice, who was unarmed and killed by Cleveland police that were not indicted, he didn’t say much. That has a lot of Cleveland residents and Tamir Rice’s mom upset and disappointed.

It went to a level to where protesters were asking Cleveland Cavaliers Lebron James to not play any games as Officer Timothy Loehman was acquited all charges again the 12-year old.

James reaction to that was:

“For me, I’ve always been a guy who’s took pride in the knowledge of every situation I’ve ever spoke on. To be completely honest, I haven’t really been on top of this issue. So it’s hard for me to comment on it”.

This shocked fans of James and infuriated protesters in Cleveland. Huffington Post reported that Tamir Rice’s mother spoke about the NBA star’s statement on her son:

“I think it’s quite sad that LeBron hasn’t spoken out about my son. I’m not asking him to sit out a game. I know his kids got to eat too, but you could at least put a shirt on or something… I’m not asking nobody to quit their job or anything but, make a statement for us black people out here”.
