CLEVELAND-- Protesters demanding the resignation of Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty gathered at a Cleveland park on Friday.

The group, upset over a grand jury's decision not to indict two Cleveland police officers in the shooting death of Tamir Rice, marched from Impett Park to McGinty's home.

"Indict, convict, send those killer cops to jail," the protesters chanted, "the whole damn system is guilty as hell."

They held signs saying "We demand accountability" and photos of Rice. About 100 people participated.

On Monday, McGinty announced a grand jury did not indict Officers Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback.

The two officers were called to Cudell Recreation Center on Nov. 22, 2014 for a report of a male with a gun. Loehmann shot Rice and later learned the weapon was airsoft. The 12-year-old died the next day.

“This was especially difficult,” McGinty told FOX 8 News on Tuesday. “We had a child, just a tragic accident.  It could have been my son or my grandson.  What a terrible event that unfolded.”
