We offer our condolences to RowVaughn Wells, Rodney Wells, and the entire Tyre Nichols’ family.
The murder of Tyre Nichols is devastating and shows, yet again, the depth and impact of unconstitutional policing that continues to kill our young people. We stand with our clergy and community comrades in Memphis who have been continuously working toward police reforms and accountability with no avail. May their voices and recommendations be centered and quickly implemented.
The swift actions of Memphis officials shows us just how quickly charges can happen for criminals in uniform… this same energy should be applied to their white colleagues. We continue to call on the Biden Administration to pass the Justice in Policing Act with the same urgency.
We also demand that law enforcement across the country practice restraint and compassion when engaging with impacted communities as people grieve this inexplicable loss in our community.
