The dea.th of Tyre Nichols has sparked outrage and calls for justice after newly released videos showed the brutal police beating he endured on the night of January 7th in Memphis. The videos consist of three body camera clips and one 31-minute video from a utility pole camera, which captures the viol.ence that took place just steps from Nichols’ home.

The videos show that during the traffic stop, Nichols was punched and kicked while being restrained by police officers. He pleads to go home and calls out for his mother, but even after the beating, while he lay motionless against a car, the officers ignored him. Nichols was hospitalized after the encounter and die d on January 10th.

The reason for the traffic stop is still unclear, with Memphis police initially stating it was for suspected reckless driving, but police chief Cerelyn “CJ” Davis later said that claim could not be substantiated. The use of force by authorities is also called into question, as Nichols did not appear to fight back. The videos do not answer why the officers felt compelled to confront him twice.

The newly released videos have sparked discussions on the use of excessive force by law enforcement and the unequal treatment of Black individuals. The videos provide a stark reminder of the viol.ence faced by Black people at the hands of law enforcement and the urgent need for reforms in the criminal justice system. The family of Tyre Nichols deserves answers and justice for his de.ath.
