In Memphis, five former police officers pleaded not guilty Friday to murdering Tyre Nichols. Their brutal beating of the 29-year-old Black father, caught on tape, led to his death three days later. Tyre Nichols’s mother RowVaughn Wells spoke after the arraignment.
RowVaughn Wells: “I know my son is gone. I know I’ll never see him again. But we have to start this process of justice right now. And I want each and every one of those police officers to be able to look me in the face. They haven’t done that yet.”
