The Memphis police chief disbanded

the unit whose officers beat to death Tyre Nichols,

citing a ‘cloud of dishonour’ as the city struggled to come to grips

with the video showing police pummelling the black motorist.

 

Police director Cerelyn ‘CJ’ Davis said

she had listened to Nichols’ relatives,

community leaders and uninvolved officers

in making the decision

Tyre Nichols' mother, RowVaughn Wells,

has called for justice after her son's death

in the country's latest instance of police brutality.

 

Nichols died three days

during a traffic stop on January 7th.

 

His mother told reporters

he called out for her in his time of need,

adding 'it's funny, you know, he always said

he was going to be famous one day.

I didn't know this is how, this is what he meant'.
