The Grand Jury in the Tamir Rice Case Did Not Take a Vote on Charges (Updated) | Scene and Heard: Scene’s News Blog | Cleveland Scene

The grand jury that opted not to indict Cleveland police officers Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback in the shooting death of Tamir Rice never actually took a vote on the matter, according to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office. 

What actually happened in the most significant grand jury hearing in county history isn’t quite clear, and the mechanism by which the grand jury “declined to indict” — in Prosecutor Timothy McGinty’s own words — is equally unclear.

I think it’s obvious that McGinty is a progressive prosecuting attorney, who runs grand juries like modem hotels. If everyone is out of the room by noon, and the keys are on the table, “No indictment.”
