Cuyahoga County, Ohio, prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty’s announcement that
a grand jury, at his office’s recommendation, declined to file charges
against the two officers who killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice surprised
almost no one.
The question now, for those Cleveland residents who are dismayed by the
sullen, foregone conclusion of the Rice case, is what they plan to do
McGinty, a Democrat, faces a March primary, in which he will face former
assistant prosecutor Michael O’Malley, who resigned from the department
this spring. O’Malley has the backing of at least one prominent black
politician: U.S. Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, the former chair of the
Congressional Black Caucus, and a onetime Cleveland-area mayor.
McGinty, for his part, claims the support of a former NAACP leader and
once-powerful City Council president, George Forbes, a pillar of
Cleveland’s black community. But the aging and now-retired Forbes failed
to appear as scheduled as one of McGinty’s two allotted endorsers when
the County Democratic Party’s executive committee met this month to
decide whether to back him for re-election. And depending on whom you
ask, Forbes’ absence was either a testament to his growing physical
infirmity, or a telling indication of how deep, or how public, the elder
statesman intends his support to be.
