    I heard about this, he is from my hometown.

    Supposedly all cops involved are black? Reminds me of the NWA song:

    'Cause they'll slam ya down to the street top
    Black police showin' out for the white cop

    Calling for calm: Family of Tyre Nichols asks for protests to remain peaceful after police footage is released
    “It’s going to be horrific, but I want each and every one of you to protest in peace. I don’t want us burning up our cities, tearing up the streets, because that’s not what my son stood for,” Rowvaughn Wells, Nichols’ mother, said.

    I have friends in Memphis and even one friend who has her child at St. Jude's. The city is preparing for civil unrest.

    Well hopefully they listen to his family's statement.

    Though I get it, I mean, sometimes you have to create havoc in order for people to pay attention. The peaceful, uneventful protests don't make the news

    The way they're explaining the video, I wouldn't be surprised at civil unrest. I don't think I'll be able to watch it. I still can't get Kelly Thomas' video out of my mind years later.

    They?ve released the video. I?m on Mobile, nothing started auto playing for me so I was able to read the article without watching anything but the video is clickable. I haven?t watched it yet and idk if I ever will.

    Its hard to watch, because the camera is shaking, its dark, and they are all wearing black. But I did see the part where he was on the ground caling for his mom. That was heart breaking.

    I accidentally saw bits of it. The little bits I saw make me glad I didn't see it all. I also made the mistake of reading a bit on the twitter and wish I hadn't. There is no excuse or justification for what happened to him yet there are those who will try to blame it all on him.

    Hubby watched it and he had to shut it off. So I won't be watching it at all. I already know the horrors and I don't need more nightmares.

    Considering the fact that this wasn't the only incident, this was a good move.

    The street camera showed the most, and it was brutal. One cop held his arms behind him as other pummeled him in the face. NO ONE CAN JUSTIFY THAT. It made me sick, angry and sad.

    The one thing I appreciate is that this video is getting much more attention and press than Kelly Thomas' video. Nothing could justify what happened to him either, but the cops were still acquitted anyway. I would say to prepare yourself for the same in this case, but I think they'll actually nail these guys because they're black. If they were white, I can assure you that it wouldn't be a slam dunk.

    The only good thing about this is finally more people are realizing the sheer horror of seeing what happens at the hands of police firsthand. It's one thing reading about it or being told about it. It's another watching it and seeing it firsthand. People need to know the reality of this issue.

    I couldn't watch very much of it, as it was horrendous. They yelled at him to show his hands while other officers were holding his hands down. It was pure chaos and no one knew what they were doing. Hearing Tyre calling out to his mother made me stop watching.

    Absolutely. It was obvious they were just pissed that he took off running and got away for a bit.

    I can't watch these type of videos. I accidentally heard the video and I had to change the station. That level of brutality, the violence I don't understand and I'll never understand how people forget the flesh that they're pounding is just as human as they are. This is how lynch mobs behaved and how mob violence happens. Rest in Heavenly peace to that poor man.

    I hate Memphis. I've lived within 2 hours of Memphis and I refuse to go. As with most places in the south, there's something there that disturbs my soul.

    So did they just sit in the car and another ambulance came 27 min later?

    I believe (not 100% sure) a couple of them just looked at Tyre from a afar and didn't do anything. Another one of them sat in the ambulance the entire time.
