The death of Tyre Nichols remains shocking to the nation.
Video footage of the incident is difficult to watch, pointing to the officers’ severe lack of training. Officers are seen brutally beating Nichols, who was not armed, at the traffic stop.
They beat him with a baton, sprayed him, and kicked him in the video. However, because Tyre Nichols is black, it has been deemed another racist injustice by many.
