Hello Citizens of the world, we are anonymous... Today we have recently learned of the tragic death of 12 year old Temir Rice, who got shot twice in the stomach for having a BB gun and whose fate was decided by an overzealous rookie officer... The Cleveland police department has refused to release the name of this childs murderer.... A quote from counter current news states that "They acknowledged that a 12-year-old was shot in the stomach by a First District officer. They would not reveal the name of that officer. When we asked them if the child was armed, they hesitated and said we really can’t say. This Rookie officer apparently was not trained. The police department he works for is to blame for this lack of appropriate training Officers are equipped with many non-lethal options such as Taser guns. Why did he not use a Taser on this child? Shooting him in cold blood was not necessary with these non-lethal options available. Are the police so moronic that they have to use the so called lethal force? The excuse “ We were feared for our lives” is Ludacris when the victim was only 12 years old and only had possession of a toy airsoft gun... Police of the United States you will learn in due time once anonymous has shut down your sites that we will not stand for your ignorant untrained rookie cops. We Are Anonymous. We Are Legion. We Do Not Forgive. We Do Not Forget. Expect Us.
