Officer Timothy Loehmann Hired In Bellaire, Ohio

The disgraced former Cleveland police officer who took Tamir Rice’s life in 2014 has a new job. Timothy Loehmann has been hired by a police department in Bellaire, a small town in Ohio.

According to Ohio’s The Times Leader, Bellaire’s police chief Richard Flanagan confirmed hiring Loehmann as a part-time officer because he “deserves a second chance.”

“He was cleared of any and all wrongdoing,” said Flanagan. “He was never charged. It’s over and done with.”

Loehmann shot Tamir less than 2 seconds after he arrived to investigate a complaint about the 9-year-old carrying what turned out to be a toy gun.

The officer was never indicted by a grand jury but was fired after officials found out he was previously deemed “unfit for duty.”
