“Tyre Nichols. He was a son. He was a brother. He was a father. He was a friend. I am heartbroken for his family and friends. Tyre Nichols had a bright future, yet it was cut short by the actions of five former Memphis police officers. In a nation where we have witnessed far too many Black men killed by police officers, this tragedy is yet another sad reminder that our Black men are under attack. I am outraged. I am sick. I am devastated for this family who has lost their loved one. Tyre’s family deserves full and swift justice. We are thankful to see these officers have been arrested, fired, and charged with the death of Tyre Nichols. I join Tyre’s family in calling for peaceful protests in his honor. We must respect their wishes. My condolences to this family for this unimaginable pain. I pray that we remember the way Tyre Nichols lived and not the violent way he was taken from his family and friends. Our Black men deserve better. We pray for healing and peace. ”
