On the second anniversary of her son's death, Samaria Rice stood on the steps of the police headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio, and read out a list of demands, NBC News reports.
First, she said, fire the police officers who killed her 12-year-old son, Tamir.
"These two years have felt like hell and many sleepless nights, when I close my eyes to try to get some rest all I can see is my son getting shot," Rice said, later adding, "Our tax dollars are paying these killer p*gs."

Tamir Rice was shot and killed by police officers on Nov. 22, 2014. Video of the incident shows a police cruiser racing to the front of a recreation center and pulling up alongside the boy. One of the officers quickly fires two shots and the child crumples to the ground and dies. Rice had been brandishing a pellet gun.
Samira Rice said that she had lost faith in the government, including the Obama administration, and its ability to protect children.
