27 ene (Reuters) – Tire Nichols repeatedly shouted “¡Mamá! ¡Mamá!” while the five Memphis police officers accused of the murder of this black automovista propinano le patadas, puñetazos y coups tras a control de tráfico on 7 denero, según show a video published in the city of the viernes.
Video from police body cameras and a camera mounted on a utility post is posted on the internet a day after officers were charged with second-degree asesinato, adhesion, security, official misconduct and oppression by the death by Nichols.
Losgentes, todos de raza negra, fueron despedidos del police department la semana pasada. Nichols, 29, was hospitalized and died as a result of his inheritance three days after meeting in the city where he lived with his mother and father and worked on FedEx.
The four videos show an aggressive escalation of violence directed against a motorist whom police initially arrested for reckless conduct. Then, the police chief stated that the cause of the detention has not been proven.
The coups seem to extend much further up to a point where Nichols can provide an amenaza for the police. In a given moment, two agents support him in a vertical position while others repeatedly deliver punches on the cara, while other agents show up in the lugar se quedan quietos sin intervenir.
The ordeal recorded in the video was converted by Nichols, father of a 4-year-old boy, into the latest bead of a racial justice movement imposed by the 2020 death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police.
Nichols has described to friends and family as an affable and consummate skater who has recently matriculated into photography classes. Raised in Sacramento, California, he was relocated to the Memphis area prior to the coronavirus pandemic.
Shelby’s commandant sheriff, Floyd Bonner, stated via video that he had “dudas sobre dos aides appearing on scene” during Nichols’ detention. Esos aides have been busy with their duties pending the result of an internal investigation, he said on Twitter.
After the video was released overnight, various dozen demonstrators demonstrated in Memphis off Interestatal 55, shortening traffic near a bridge crossing the Misisipi River in Arkansas.
Three people were arrested for damaging a police vehicle during protests in Times Square, according to a spokesperson for the Departamento de Policía de Nueva York. In other cities, such as Atlanta, Washington and Sacramento, demonstrations have been peaceful.
