Tyre Nichols RIP (police brutality trigger warning)
« on: January 21, 2023, 01:26:04 PM »
If Iím crossing a line by posting this mods can feel free to delete.. but I feel like this is about to blow up.  Long story short.. 5 black cops in Memphis have been fired for beating another black man to death. 

From what Iíve read, thereís video of the incident to be released, and the predicted outrage may rival the response to George Floydís killing.  I also saw in an article that Nichols was a skater, so I figured maybe some Memphis heads in here wouldíve heard something about it?

Not looking to start any debates, just want to pay respect, wish the best to his loved ones, and hope that justice will be served.

I don't recall ever running into him, but I can tell you that he was loved by many in this city. What happened is fucking tragic and it's cast a dark cloud over the city. I hope that those bastards get what they deserve for murdering an innocent man.

To give context of the scenario from what I've heard/read about it; Tyre was pulled over by an unmarked vehicle and the person who got out was a "plainclothes" cop wearing a hoodie and jeans. In Memphis recently, we've had a group of young teens/young adults posing as law enforcement in the SAME EXACT WAY THESE COPS PERFORMED to carjack people, so his reaction of fleeing from some unknown figure in a hoodie and unmarked vehicle was completely justifiable and I know many other people would have driven off just the same.
I'm glad those pigs got fired and had their names released. They deserve every bit of what's coming to them, but I genuinely hope it doesn't take any uglier turns than what's already occurred.

I found this article searching his name.  Thereís a photo of him on a skateboard if you scroll down, with some quotes about him being a skater.  Looks like he was from Sacramento originally and moved to Memphis within the last few years.  He also had a young child. 

Law enforcement in the Deep South is fucked.  This can happen to anyone at anytime if the cops think youíre giving them lip, or even look at them the wrong way.  So much shit like this has been covered up over the years; thank god for body cams.  I hope these motherfuckers fry for this

This is turning out to be a big story and I thought it was worth sharing here.

Yeah itís sad, this is one reason as a Black skateboarder I donít feel comfortable street skating alone usually. Because if the cops show up, thereís a higher chance of me getting fucked up than my white peers.

The crazy thing about this one is I think the cops were Black too. Which goes to show that all of them truly are bastards.

He was running from a traffic stop, I think they tend to fuck everyone up who does that, regardless of skin color.



They beat him to the ground non-stop for three straight minutes when he was in no condition to fight back. Don't do this.

They didnít fuck him up. They killed him. Itís a big difference. They donít kill everyone who runs from them.

Five cops, out of uniform and in unmarked cars, savagely beat a man to death and this is what you have to say?

Time and time again. When do things change...? When do black people stop getting killed at traffic stops?

It shouldn't hit harder b/c he was a skateboarder but it does.

No. Most people do not get killed at traffic stops. How normalized is this? Policing in America is broken, broken broken.

Fuck this apologist bullshit. Even if the police beat up everyone who ran from them, which they absolutely don't, it would still be a heinous abuse of power. They are NOT supposed to be judge, jury and executioner. ACAB.

RIP Tyre. I'm heartbroken.

Sorry, not how I meant it.  I was just saying since the article linked says nothing of the incident, that the guy wasnít street skating.  Obviously I donít think that people should be beaten to death for running from the cops.

We are all heartbroken over this down here. It's tragic when anyone is murdered by the police, but it just hits so much harder because he was a part of our community.

Pals, if any of you has the time and willingness to drive to Memphis; we are having a candlelit vigil for Tyre at our local skatepark named Frank Tobey Park at 7pm this evening. Please show up and show love if you can.
