Cleveland is trying to force Tamir Rice's family to pay for his ambulance



The City of Cleveland has filed a claim against the estate of Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old boy who was shot and killed by a police officer in 2014

It asks for for $500 to cover “ambulance advance life support” and other medical expenses, including mileage, related to Rice’s ride to the hospital the day he was shot

Subodh Chandra, an attorney representing members of Rice’s family in their ongoing civil suit against the city, said in a statement emailed to Mashable: “The Rice family is disturbed by the city’s behavior.
