Tyre Nichols Beating Video

Tyre Nichols, 29, died after getting beaten up by several police officers in a Memphis-released body cam footage.

According to CBS, Nichols’ stepfather said that Nichols died from cardiac arrest and kidney failure.

An independent autopsy was conducted and they discovered that Nichols had extensive bleeding caused by beating.

The incident happened when police officers confronted Nichols at a traffic stop.

Apparently, the police officers stopped Nichols for reckless driving.

The officers pushed him to the ground while Nichols can be heard saying that he didn’t do anything.

An officer used a stun gun/taser on him and Nichols screamed for his mom who lives 60 yards away.

Another officer used pepper spray to spray Nichols and said “Watch out, I’ll spray your eyes again”.

Who is Tyre Nichols?

Tyre Nichols is a 29-year-old father who loves skateboarding and photography.

He has a tattoo of his mom on his arm.

He likes taking photos of sunsets on weekends in the city park.

Nichols has a photography website hosted on Wix called “T. Nichols photography”.

Here’s what his about page says, “My name is Tyre D. Nochols. I’m an aspiring photographer. I mostly do this stuff for fun, but I enjoy it very much”.

“Photography helps me look at the world in a more creative way. It expresses me in ways I cannot write down for people”.

“I take different types of photography including action sports, rural photos, bodies of water, and landscape”.

“My vision is to bring my viewers deep into what I am seeing through my eye and out through my lens”.

“People have a story to tell. So why not capture it instead of doing the “norm” and writing it down or speaking it?”.

In an interview, Nichols’ mother said, “Nobody’s perfect, nobody. But he was damn near. He was damn near perfect”.

What happened in the video?
