Tyre Nichols Video Release

Memphis cops release horrific video of five officers raining punches and kicks down on Tyre Nichols as he screams out 'mom, mom' - before dying in hospital after cardiac arrest and kidney failure 

The Memphis Police Department has released harrowing bodycam footage of five police officers fatally beating Tyre Nichols following a traffic stop for purported reckless driving. The video released on Friday night shows Nichols, 29, crying out for his mother multiple times during the brutal January 7 assault, which took place just a few blocks from his home. 'Mom! Mom!' screams Nichols as he is pinned to the ground by multiple officers following a foot chase, pepper sprayed in the face, and kicked and punched. All five officers involved in the killing were charged with second-degree murder in killing Nichols, with the district attorney saying that though they all played different roles, 'they are all responsible.' Still, police across the nation are bracing for potential violent unrest in response to the graphic and highly disturbing footage. Source
