US recoils upon witnessing violent, deadly arrest of Tyre Nichols

AP: Video showing five Memphis police officers beating a Black man was made public Friday, one day after they were charged with murder in the death of Tyre Nichols. The footage shows the Black officers savagely beating the 29-year-old FedEx worker for three minutes in an assault that the Nichols family’s legal team likened to the infamous 1991 police beating of Los Angeles motorist Rodney King. Cities across the country braced for large demonstrations. Nichols’ relatives urged supporters to protest peacefully.
