The Memphis Police Department released video of five police officers beating 29-year-old Tyre Nichols during a traffic stop on Jan. 7. Nichols died on Jan. 10. The officers were charged with second-degree murder, aggravated assault, and kidnapping, noted The Washington Post. Police claimed Nichols was stopped for reckless driving. The chief of Memphis police said the video was “perhaps worse” than the Rodney King beating by LAPD cops in 1991.
