Protestors Rally In Cleveland Outside Arena Before NBA Finals Game 3 (Photos)

A group of protesters are holding a rally outside Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena in advance of Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors.

The rally is protesting the shooting of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy gunned down by police last November, and other victims of police violence.

The rally appears to be a peaceful protest, with no reports of police intervening or dealing with any violence. The rally was originally planned as a march, but protestors are hovering outside the Q.

Protestors are obeying orders so far.

Rice was believed to be pointing a gun at people. The boy was “armed” with a pellet gun. One protestor appears to be highlighting that fact.
