#BlackLivesMatter activist Tariq Toure calling for LeBron James to sit out of Cleveland Basketball games in protest of the Non-indictment for officers involved in the shooting death of 12 year old Tamir Rice.
Tariq Touré, an activist and writer, started the Twitter hashtag #NoJusticeNoLeBron following a grand jury’s decision not to charge Cleveland police officers in the November 2014 shooting of Rice. Tamir Rice was playing in a park with a toy gun when a passerby called 911, describing the gun as likely fake and the boy as “probably a juvenile.”
He also noted that Rice was large for his age, leading officers to believe he was older. The Rice family accused the prosecutor of “abusing and manipulating the grand jury process to orchestrate a vote against indictment.”
