House Republican leaders have barely said a word about potential police reform legislation since news of Tyre Nichols’s death at the hands of police.
“I don't know that there's any law that can stop that evil that we saw,” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan said in response to Tyre Nichols’ death.
Tyre Nichols can be heard crying out, "Stop, I’m not doing anything” and “I’m just trying to go home," as Memphis police officers beat and kick him.
The officer was suspended without pay after the video went viral.
Cox was put in a police van without a seatbelt, and after it stopped abruptly he told officers he couldn’t move or feel anything. They ignored his pleas.
“What we saw in Malang is a culmination of years of political neglect to prioritise democratic police reforms.”
“They could have just bear-hugged him and got handcuffs on him,” the teen’s grandmother said. “I don’t know why they slammed him to the ground.”
“You’re going to hurt more.”
The officer also claims that a unit supervisor yelled out “Heil Hitler” and did a Nazi salute while in the same room as him.
