CLEVELAND – Two boys arrested with BB guns in a park were ordered to write essays about Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old who had a pellet gun when he was fatally shot by Cleveland police outside a recreation center.
Cleveland.com reported the boys, who were 12 and 15, admitted to disorderly conduct.
Police in Parma said they responded to reports of two kids with guns in a park pavilion in February and surveillance video captured the two brothers surrendering to police.
The judge asked both boys if they knew about Tamir's case and told them they're putting themselves at risk. Both were ordered to write the judge a report comparing their case to Tamir's.
The boys are due back in court on Aug. 19.
