And you thought Chicago cops had a lotta of nerve. And they do. But the City of Cleveland may have them beat.

The City of Cleveland filed a creditor’s claim against the estate of Tamir Rice, the black 12-year old who was fatally shot by police in 2014, for not paying emergency medical service fees, CleveScene reported Wednesday.

The $500 fee is “owing for emergency medical services rendered as the decedent’s last dying expense under Ohio Revised Code,” according to the report.

This is the most recent indignity to be inflicted on Rice’s family since his murder by Cleveland Police Officer Tim Loehmann in November of 2014.  Prior to this, it was the Cuyahoga county prosecutor who brought Loehmann before a grand jury but didn’t actually have the grand jury vote on indicting him.
