Tyre Nichols cries for mother in footage released of police attack

Washington Correspondent

Traumatic video footage showing a man crying out for his mother as he’s attacked by Memphis police officers has been released – a day after all five of the former officers were charged with murder.

Tyre Nichols was kicked, punched and sprayed with pepper spray while being restrained – even though he showed no signs of resisting.  President Biden said the footage had left him “outraged and deeply pained”.

Warning: highly distressing images from the start.
