Aaron Gerome Tise

Lieutenant Aaron Tise was intentionally struck and killed by a suspect driving stolen construction equipment

The 15-year-old directed the grader towards Lieutenant Tise's patrol car even as Lieutenant Tise attempted to move out of the way. As the grader collided with the patrol car Lieutenant Tise attempted to exit the vehicle through the passenger door, however his leg became stuck and he was unable to totally exit the vehicle.

The suspect was thrown from the vehicle upon impact. The motor grader dragged the patrol car down the road, hit another police vehicle and stopped after crossing a main road. By the time other officers were able to get to the vehicle Lieutenant Tise had passed away.

The suspect ran from the scene, but was arrested a short time later when he returned. He was convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to life.

My letter will be sent to the parole board tomorrow. However, this letter will be the last one that I send for a while. I'm sorry to report that I have completely lost faith in the accountability of police officers. Our system has demonstrated time and again that it does not hold officers accountable when they go too far. This all started with the killing of Tamir Rice and has ended with the killings of Andrew Finch and Stephon Clark. As of now I will no longer send letters to the parole boards. I cannot support a system that does hold its officers accountable when they commit crimes. Therefore this letter that I send, will be the last one.

To Officer Tise, thank you for your service and my prayers be with your friends and family.
