- AG Schwalb Statement on the Killing of Tyre Nichols
Attorney General Brian L. Schwalb today issued the following statement on the video released by the Memphis Police Department that depicts five officers brutally beating and ultimately killing Tyre Nichols:
“This evening, Washington DC is reminded that our institutions still have a long way to go toward upholding true equity and justice. No one can watch the video of Tyre Nichols being beaten to death without being overwhelmed with horror, sadness, and disgust.
“Shelby County District Attorney Mulroy has taken important first steps toward accountability through the indictments of the five officers under investigation for Tyre’s death. However, nothing will return Tyre to his family, and true justice will only be realized when people, particularly Black people, are free from excessive police force.
“People across the District are understandably angry and heartbroken, and have a right to make their voices heard. We will always protect and support District residents who exercise their democratic rights to protest peacefully.
“I urge all of us to come together as a community to support Tyre’s family, support each other, and continue the hard work needed to achieve true justice.”
