One year after Tamir Rice’s shooting, grand jury weighs evidence ideastream: Michael Benza, senior instructor of law, discussed how different questions are posed in investigations of police-officer-involved shootings, such as the death of Tamir Rice. “If this was a non-officer shooting, the question would be, did he shoot or did he not? And who did it? And that would be the end of it. And that’s not even the question at all in an officer-involved case,” he said.
