EMS Officer Fired For Saying He’s “Glad” Tamir Rice Is Dead

An EMS supervisor is getting heat for the comments he made on Facebook about 12-year-old Tamir Rice that was shot and killed by cops back in 2014. Captain Jamie Marquardt has since been fired for the insensitive and hurtful words he spewed over social media.

Marquardt’s post stated: “Tamir Rice should have been shot and I am glad he is dead. I wish I was in the park that day as he terrorized innocent patrons by pointing a gun at them. I am upset I did not get the chance to kill the little criminal (expletive).”

Just to refresh your memory, Tamir Rice was murdered back in November 2014 by Officer Timothy Loehmann for playing with a toy BB gun. Loehmann and his partner Frank Garmback responded to a 911 call where the person on the other end explained that the person looked like a “juvenile.” They also stated that the weapon was “probably fake.” But that didn’t stop cops from gunning the 12-year-old down anyway. To make matters worse, both officers got off scotch-free and no charges were made against them for killing this innocent child. Tamir passed away in the hospital just one day after the shooting occurred.

After Marquardt posted the hateful words about Tamir, he denied that it was him that actually did it. Here’s what he had to say: “Someone…picked up my phone and made some awful posts under my name. I want to apologize for those who thought it was me. I do not believe or stand for what was written.”

Now, do you really think we believe that? We sure are glad he’s being held accountable for his actions.  Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Tamir Rice . Clearly, they aren’t getting any closure from the death of Tamir because of people like Officer Marquardt.
