Cleveland Police Union To Sue Toy Gun Makers

The Cleveland police union plans to file a federal lawsuit against toy gun makers, demanding they produce products that look like toys. The union says the current realistic design places officers at risk. Two white officers shot and killed a 12 year old African-American boy, Tamir Rice, in 2014 while he was playing with a toy gun. The union has blamed the gun for the boy's death.
