*As activists took to the streets in Cleveland today protesting the grand jury’s decision not to indict the cops involved in the Tamir Rice shooting, a call was put out for Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James to join the protest by refusing to play.
Under the hashtag #NoJusticeNoLeBron, the movement calls on James to sit out games until the officer who pulled the trigger is brought to justice.

The NBA superstar, who wore an “I Can’t Breathe” shirt last season to support those calling for justice for Eric Garner, has yet to comment.
