Tyre Nichols

The GOP-led state legislature has voted on a bill that would restrict local governments from passing police reform measures.
House Bill 1931 was introduced after Memphis approved police reform measures in response to the death of Tyre Nichols last year.
“The fact that you cannot put any finger on any type of real change is deafening," said one Memphis activist.
While working as a corrections officer, Demetrius Haley was accused of excessive force.
Desmond Mills Jr. has also agreed to cooperate with prosecutors, who are recommending a 15-year sentence for his role in Nichols' death.
The officers were captured on body camera footage brutally beating the 29-year-old Black man.
Months after the death of Tyre Nichols, the Department of Justice is investigating Memphis' policing practices.
A crowded field of candidates in this October’s election seems to agree on one thing: The Memphis police department needs a change.
Tyre Nichols, a Black man who spent much of his youth in California, was killed in what prosecutors said was a fatal beating by police in Tennessee during a traffic stop.
“We know now what we knew then,” attorneys for Nichols' family said after being briefed on the official results.
