    My grandpa used to say " the guy that holds the bag during a robbery is as guilty as the guy filling it with money." Everyone that participated, witnessed and chose to look the other way, stood by and watch that man pretty much die without rendering him aid, that fabricated a story or helped doing so etc...everyone involved needs to be held accountable for their complete disregard for life and lack of humanity

      Everyone not directly involved but present needs to be charged with felony murder, just like how they would charge a get away driver in a robbery that resulted in murder. That means those paramedics that failed to do their job and anyone else present that didn't intervene.

      Cody DeLonge 3 months ago +15

      @Tyrone Brown I mean she didn't hide it she was open and punished them. If we find out later she had reason to know these individuals were dangerous and ignored it that's an issue. If she tries to protect their supervisors that's an issue. We can't hold every person in power responsible for everything ppl under them do. We hold them responsible for how they react. If an employee makes mistakes and you ignore them that's an issue. If u immediately fire rhe employee that's literally why you're there. Saying she should be gone for doing everything right just encourages future Police Chiefs to try snd hide and cover things up if their jobs are on the line anytime any cop under them makes a mistake. Try and think next time instead of jumping to be political

    Honestly I don't know how all those people could just stand there and do nothing. I witnessed 6 police officer assaulting a teenage boy. I pulled out my phone to have someone record. I literally was pulling and pushing the officers while screaming my head off. I brought attention to the situation and people actually came and helped. I heard that young man screaming for his mother, it's heartbreaking.

    This was not a traffic stop. This was personal. They went after him These police officers did not ask for ID, registration or anything. They stopped him and pulled him out without asking one question. The department confirmed that there was no reason for the stop so forget the cover up of reckless driving or going for an officer’s gun. The charges speak for themselves. These police officers are being charged with kidnapping. Police officers detain you , they don’t kidnap you. So someone knows the truth other than the victim and these officers. Give it time.

      Also when u hear them talking and saying he tried to grab my gun, that was them Lying on camera bc they knew what they did was wrong and the only thing that could justify what they did to him was to claim he tried to take their guns. Hell they have the part on camera when they walked up to his yanked him out and said I'll blow your fuckin brains out, but when they're retelling it to the cop with the camera they claimed he jumped out , swung and hit one in the face and tried to grab his gun. I was like damn they came up with the lie so quickly and thankx God for these cameras bc if not they would've gotten away it, some still do with it being on camera.

      I don't want to disagree. I just wonder about target him, for what? He moved to Memphis in 2020 and was a peaceful skateboarder bro that seemed to not bother anyone. What could have been so bad for the end result? It's no surprise that he ran for his life when they initially pulled him over for nothing. I would have done the same.

      They're right, the whole thing is why police need punishments that are 3-4x harsher for every crime that they commit comparatively to if a civilian did the same thing. It erodes the social contract, 100 9/11's aren't as bad as bad cops getting off easy.

    If three robbers go into a bank to rob it, and a fourth robber stays in the getaway car, and then one of the robbers in the bank shoots and kills a bank teller, if caught, all four robbers are tried for murder, even though the fourth robber never stepped foot inside the bank. Every single person present at Tyre Nichols' murder holds some level of shared responsibility. This case is extremely important to finally establish that in such situations, if you do not take steps to stop the killing, you become someone who shares responsibility in the death, legally.

      The 👮🏾‍♂️ know how to limit the data recorded. There's 5👮🏾‍♂️ but only 1 view from one body camera and it would appear that when the blows were being made this officer just happened to be looking away. Coincidence? It does however have audio and you can hear the poor man keening in pain each time that he's hit. Awful! 😔😔😔🥺

      the problem is that the Police are having a hard time recruiting good people, so there are only bad people left.

      It's neat that we haven't seen the dash cam videos yet. If it proved that he was driving erratically like they said, it would have been released already. So, she's just another one hiding the truth and not doing anything. The only reason any reaction came down at all is that they did it under a public camera so holding on to the body cam footage wouldn't have helped.
      Remember folks, cops will only withhold information if it benefits themselves, they are not required to, and actively do not care about the truth.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they were allowed to plea to lesser charges, like the cop who pulled down a guy's pants and tased his testicles, and was allowed to plea down to disorderly conduct. The prosecutors and judges don't want cops to face justice.

    The barbarism of these animals is beyond comprehension - - like a pack of dogs. On the street corner and also at the initial so called "traffic stop" they showed no humanity whatsoever. Thank God there was a traffic camera that captured this horrific crime. It should be questioned/investigated whether these cops possibly had gang ties and maybe were out for blood and mistook Tyre for someone else that they were hunting. They sure did behave like they had planned for a beat down. All of them clearly behaved and spoke like total thugs. I pray that they get to the bottom of it fully and swiftly bringing Justice for Tyre and his family. My deepest heartfelt condolences go out to his son, Mr. & Mrs. Wells and the entire family. 🙏🏻 My heart is broken for you all. 💔 I'm so very sorry. 😭😭😭 (from a suburb of Memphis). 🙏🏻 Rest in Peace ♥Tyre 🙏🏻.

    The crazy part is Tyree was probably so sharp minded as to knowing the possibility of the outcome, that he ended up at a intersection where those Officers actions wouldn't go unpunished. Can we call it fate, I don't know, we can say that for Tyree to end up at a intersection where A Sky Cop Camera caught everything that those Cops tried to lie about, I wouldn't say was pure luck. Just to think if he hadn't ran to the area where everything was being recorded in true time with no obstruction, those cops would have lied their way out of a murder charge, by blaming an innocent man. Once other officers began to arrive, they were already justifying the fact that he could barely even hold his head up by saying he high as hell, look at him he on dope, and the others saying nah that's something else cause he was super strong. And what makes everything so bad is law enforcement and emergency personnel are not looking at a "Suspect", as a human. They were probably looking at Tyree as a drug addict and drunk and didn't want to render him aide because they didn't want to touch him. Just think if this wasn't caught on the Sky Cop Camera.

    I agree that all officials present at the scene and did nothing owe the victim what the British refervti as "Duty of care" regardless of his crime. They should make all efforts to save life. Secondly, why are the police forces not accountable to being fined? The tax payers should be accountable to their pay, but the organisation should be accountable to action. If they start being fined and made to pay, all will sit up. Other countries sur hospitals, police force, schools etc and that is why one see them do all they can to avoid any unnecessary controversies.

    Some good advice was given on this topic, make the cops pay for the lawsuits and paying the family. What if the police don’t have that type of money?
    Wondering how they bail out on a 250,000 dollar bond on a police officer pay check. “Three of the officers remained in custody at the Shelby County Jail Thursday night. Bond was set at $350,000 for Haley, 30, and Martin, 30, and $250,000 for Bean, 24, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
    Mills, 32, and Smith, 28, posted $250,000 bond “. What else was Scorpion taking under these power they had to stop crime in the city. -CNN

      I think Memphis has the 10% rule for bail. All you need is 10% or sometimes less and they will bail you out. Bail bondsmen are usually friends with cops in the city so I wouldn’t be surprised if they took 1% an bailed them out. They should’ve been held with no bail, they’re clearly a danger to the community!

If they just stop talking back they wouldn't get hit. It's ridiculous trying to blame the ppl committing the crimes when really we should be blaming the ppl provoking them into doing it.

    the purpose these cops served was complete domination of Tyre. He probably stood a greater chance of survival if he'd been knocked unconscious after the first few blows, but it was a slim chance. The fact that he showed any civility to the cops probably enraged them, either that or this is just an authorized band of thugs doing what they did many times in the past. I'd be interested in knowing how many previous altercations with these thugs will surface going forward. No doubt any complaints will be met with "they were "known" to police. Is there a legal team willing to bring forward a class action suit?

    As far as I understand it, they had reformed their practices and mandated de-escalation (supposedly) across departments. Police culture is so infested with racialized otherization and cloaked implicit bias to the point that it is policy to view Black and Brown men as a threat regardless of if there is a crime, and the value of our lives is so low that they can't beat a man begging for his life in the middle of the street and there be no consequences. Police brutality has sat at the top of black issues for a 100 years, this behavior has been accepted, justified, covered up, and out right dismissed for 100 years. And, it is almost condescending to suggest firing five men or so, and prosecuting them will supplant the fact that the police culture will never change until we force it to. I, personally have been harassed countless times for fitness training by police. Can you imagine doing burpees/running, and an armed officer is confronting you like you are doing something wrong in this climate? I think we have tried the policing thing in OUR neighborhoods long enough, it has not reduced violence...how could it? Police presence propagates violence. No crime can be prevented after the fact. You can't use violence and intimidation and demand civility not follow your example. I believe as a society we have to evolve. Police do not prevent crime, economic stability and strong families do. How about we shift our tax dollars into programs that build us us...instead of murder us in the street. And to those who are satisfied with their service let them get the all the bad apples that seem to only grow on trees in our neighborhoods.
