When Will it End?

Bodycam footage of 29-year-old, Tyre Nichols was released to the public. Footage shows Tyre being tased, pepper sprayed, and brutally beaten to death by five MPD officers. On January 7th, Tyre was pulled over for a traffic stop, when said officers started yelling at him to get out of his car and forcibly removed him from his vehicle. These five officers then proceeded to kick and strike Tyre several times in the face, abdomen, and upper body area. After the beating, officers left Tyre’s limp body slumped on the police car, and failed to call for help until 30 minutes after the fact.  In the released body camera footage, the voices of several officers were also heard saying offensive and dangerous words throughout the video. Since the brutal death of Tyre Nichols, there have been several protests to honor his life, and for a fight for justice. 

All five officers have been charged with second-degree murder, aggravated assault, and aggravated kidnapping, along with four other charges. However, news has gotten out that all five officers have been bonded out with a bond set at over $350,000 dollars. The public has had a lot to say on this matter, coming to the conclusion that the only reason why “justice” was brought too fast to these officers is that they’re black. The country remains enraged at the acts of injustice within the police force, and the constant acts of police brutality that go unnoticed. Hurt and angry about this, Congress is being pressed to pass a police reform. Tyre Nichols was on his way home from the park after taking sunset photos, he was a FedEx worker and had a 4-year-old son. He was 100 yards away from his parent’s house when he was stopped and was heard calling out for his mother’s help. Rest in power Tyre.
