What Tyre Nichols Could Change About Policing

Calls for police reform have grown louder in the wake of the brutal beating that led to the death of Tyre Nichols in Memphis – especially after we learned that the first police report in the case did not match the video footage released by authorities. We examine why some are calling the quick decision to charge the officers involved a โ€œblueprintโ€ and look at the role specialized crime fighting units can sometimes play in these deadly encounters.ย

  1. RIP Tyre he called out to his momma ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ˜ข How can something like this happen? He was killed, murdered ๐Ÿ˜ข 5 cops ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™‚๏ธ assaulted Tyre it should all be on body cameras l don’t believe a word that is coming out of these cops mouths, how can there be no footage of what the police did to Tyre? How can you believe the police officers ๐Ÿค” when its obvious they turned the cameras off otherwise wouldn’t they want evidence of Tyre abusing the police? It just proves the 5 cops ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜’ are guilty of murder. They should be in jail until the court case, and left there to die,

    1. Because he was attacked by w supremacists. ๐Ÿ˜ข. The worst kind of w supremacists, the b ones. ๐Ÿ˜ข.

  2. Why Tyre could finally change policing: cuz he got killed by black cops so we can finally focus on policing instead of race

  3. When are you guys going to cover the NJ black republican councilwoman who was killed in a targeted attack 3 days ago?

    Wrong kind of black or what?

    1. Itโ€™s sad that we live in a society where someone could reasonably assume heโ€™s getting fucking murdered based on how 5+ officers are excessively aggressively handling you, not answering your questions, and pulling out all sorts of weapons on you for not complying to the impossible demands youโ€™re given.

  4. We are missing a critical factor in this police brutality issue.
    Memphis, Tennessee is a strong progressive city and our Democrat party is in control of city government. The Memphis mayor is a strong Democrat. The vast majority of city Council members are Democrats are also protected class individuals to include black male, black, female, and white female members. The chief of the Memphis police department is a black female. All of the officers who have been arrested in connection with the homicide of this black motorist are black males themselves. Memphis has also taken steps to include a white EMT and another white officer who were on the periphery of this homicide obviously in the interest of diversity.
    If we look at some of the other cities involved in police misconduct involving the killing of unarmed black individuals, we find that these are also strong, democrat, progressive cities to include Louisville, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Kenosha, Atlanta, New York City, as well as other progressive cities.
    To quote the cartoon character Pogo who stated, โ€œ we have met the enemy, and he is us. โ€œ

  5. Apparently his parents didn’t make him watch Chris Rock’s PSA “How Not to Get Your A** Kicked by the Police”.

  6. He escalated the situation when he didn’t listen to their orders and ran from the cops๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
