“How can you feel in fear of your life, when the person is running away from you?”
Five former Memphis police officers were charged with second-degree murder and kidnapping in the death of Tyre Nichols. It took 13 days from the day of the incident to fire those cops and 19 days to charge them with any crime. In the last two days, two more cops have been relieved of their duties. One of which, a white cop, Preston Hemphill, who was at least quoted as saying the cops would “stomp his (Nichols) ass.”
