An Ohio grand jury decided on Monday (Dec. 28) that the two Cleveland officers involved in the 2014 fatal shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice would not be indicted, sending many artists to speak out on social media.

The Associated Press reports officers Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback could be disciplined after what Cuyahoga County prosecutor Tim McGinty called a "perfect storm of human error," adding, "mistakes and communications by all involved that day, the evidence did not indicate criminal conduct by police." Loehmann, an officer-in-training, fatally shot Rice on Nov. 22 outside a Cleveland recreation center after seeing him with a pellet gun.

Rice's family also issued a statement, saying they "saddened and disappointed by this outcome -- but not surprised," according to CNN.
