Cleveland Police Settle Tamir Rice Lawsuit for $6 Million

That’s a lot of money [1], but it can never replace the life lost:

The city has reached a $6 million settlement in a lawsuit over the death of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old black boy shot by a white police officer while playing with a pellet gun outside a recreation center.

An order filed in U.S. District Court in Cleveland on Monday says the city will pay out $3 million this year and $3 million the next.
