It’s like his family hasn’t been through enough already, the City of Cleveland has decided to file a lawsuit against the family of Tamir Rice for unpaid EMS bill. The lawsuit was filed yesterday (February 10th 2016) and according to reports the city states that the Rice family is responsible “for emergency medical services rendered as the decedent’s last dying expense under Ohio Revised Code.”
They broke the bill down in two parts; part 1 is $450 in “advance life support” that was administered to 12-year-old Tamir, and part 2 $50 in mileage driven by the ambulance to the hospital where he died.

On Nov. 2, 2014, 12-year-old Tamir Rice was shot and killed by a Cleveland police officer while he played with a toy gun in a park near his home. No officer was ever charged in the shooting.
