Watch: Rev. Al Sharpton addresses Tyre Nichols’ death after the release of bodycam footage

In the long sequence of high-profile deaths of Black men at the hands of American police, the death of Tyre Nichols in Memphis shared many of the same hallmarks: a traffic stop that turns violent, an outraged community and a critical release of video footage.

But the case was unique in another way. All five police officers now charged with his murder are Black.
How the officers' race will influence protesters in the streets – and any future jury in the courtroom – remains to be seen. But experts, activists and attorneys told USA TODAY that the race of the officers involved is far less important than the race of the victim. They say a "historically biased culture of policing" puts Black people at risk regardless of an officer's race.

  4. The senseless brutal beating of Tyre Nichols that lead to his death is beyond incomprehensible, reckless, and disgusting. The actions of those of five x-officers where they beat the victim to the pulp are that of gang and criminal mentality.
