His mother, RowVaughn Wells, thanked local activists for their support and thanked the family's lawyers and police for acting swiftly. Rodney Wells, Nichols' stepfather, said the family will fight for justice not only for his stepson but for others who have died in police custody.

    1. My parents always told me n taught me if you can’t say anything good about a person don’t say anything all or keep ur taught to ur self but even God knows all of our thoughts doesn’t He?🤔

  1. The barbaric nature of this heinous crime is utterly disturbing to watch. The senseless brutal beating of Tyre Nichols that lead to his death is beyond incomprehensible, reckless, disgusting, and most of all inhumane. The five x-officers, possessing criminal and gang mentality, who savagely beat the victim to a pulp, deserve more than life in prison. These monsters knew no bounds, and these additional “accessories” or “accomplices” are as evil as these five thugs who were charged with murder. It is appalling, terrifying, and sickening that we have so many bullies hiding behind badges in law enforcement agencies across the nation. I can’t begin to imagine the pain and suffering his family is enduring. No parent should have to bury his or her own child. My deepest condolences go to Tyre’s family and friends as they struggle to cope with their loss. May the Nichols family seek full justice. Rest in peace, Tyre Nichols.

    1. Amen only fr the money why don’t they go to Chicago and ask why are there so much black on black shootings

    2. Oh shut the 🤬 up.
      That’s what you took away from that?
      That’s what you chose to focus on?
      This father…this son was beaten to DEATH by a group of cowards.
      Hell, I don’t like her neither…BUT THATS NOT THE FUKING POINT!!!

  2. She’s reading a prepared speech? Can the two clowns in charge say anything that actually comes from their brain?

  3. May God comfort your hearts in this absolute tragic time. God Bless you. I pray that Jesus help you in your pain.

  4. Sorry for your loss. My condolences and prayers to you all ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️God has your loving precious boy. I feel you. I’m a mother myself. I can’t imagine. His work is done. Our body is gone . Our souls is with God’s presence.
