officers’ statements:

    By MICHAEL BALSAMO and ERIC TUCKER, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department says it will not bring federal criminal charges against two Cleveland police officers in the 2014 killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, saying video of the shooting was of too poor a quality for prosecutors to conclusively establish what had happened. In closing the case Tuesday, the department brought to an end a long-running investigation into a high-profile shooting that helped galvanize the Black Lives Matter movement and became part of the national dialogue about police use of force against minorities, including children. The decision, revealed in a lengthy statement, does not condone the officers' actions but rather says the cumulative evidence was not enough to support a federal criminal civil rights prosecution. Tamir was playing with a pellet gun outside a recreation center in Cleveland on Nov. 22, 2014, when he was shot and killed by...
