Attorney and former prosecutor Kenneth Montgomery joins RT’s Simone Del Rosario to discuss how the use of a grand jury may have affected the case of the officer involved in the killing of Tamir Rice.

However, in many cases involving police officers, prosecutors present favorable evidence, with no one to counter those claims.
Protests against government plan to deport thousands
Around 100 people marched to the North Lawn of the White House loudly voicing their opposition to the Obama administration and Department of Homeland Security to deport thousands of undocumented migrants from Central America.
