An arbitrator says the white Cleveland police officer  fired after fatally shooting a 12-year-old black boy playing with a pellet gun in 2014 won't get his job back. 

Timothy Loehmann was cleared of criminal charges in the death of Tamir Rice. He was fired last year for failing to disclose he'd been forced out of a job by the East Cleveland police department. Loehmann lost his challenge in arbitration. His union says it will appeal.
