Surveillance video shows Tamir Rice's sister thrown to the ground, handcuffed (VIDEO)

(The teen appears around 1:40 mark)

Video released Wednesday shows the 14-year-old sister of Tamir Rice run to him after he was shot by the police, only to have officers rush her, throw her to the ground and handcuff her before placing her in the back of a patrol car.

Rice was shot in November by Cleveland cops while carrying a toy gun which was mistaken for the real thing.

“This video shows in crystal-clear HD that the responding officers acted inappropriately and recklessly, both in how they handled the shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice and the events that immediately followed,” said the Rice family’s attorney, Benjamin Crump, who has also represented the families of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.

“The family is outraged that rather than comfort a sister coming to the aid of her dying brother, the officers instead manhandled and tackled her, cuffed her and thoughtlessly tossed her in the back of a patrol car.”

The family has filed a wrongful death suit against the city and the two responding officers.
