Tyre Nichols was not my biological brother but I couldn’t be any closer to his family. And now he’s dead at the hands of five police officers.

His mother took me in and provided me with a place to stay in 1998, when I was pregnant with my first child. Tyre was only 6 when I met him and he was a very good kid. I never had a problem watching him, he was never into any trouble.

I had to do something to show my love, support and appreciation,  so I started this Petition in hopes of helping get justice... 

Tyre was a 29-year-old a father of a beautiful little boy. He was stopped at a traffic stop and then BRUTALLY BEAT AND MURDERED BY THE HANDS OF THE MEMPHIS TENNESSEE POLICE DEPARTMENTS SCORPION UNIT. HE WAS BEAT SO HORRIFICALLY THAT HE DIED 3 DAYS LATER.

All because of a traffic stop we’ll never be able to see his beautiful bright smile again that lit up so many rooms.

He was a man that deserves to be protected by the police, not beat into critical condition by them!!!

He was a regular man who enjoyed riding his skateboard, drinking Starbucks and doing photography!!! 

These murderers had their employment terminated but we want justice and MURDER CONVICTIONS for everyone involved. MPD officers violated multiple department policies, including excessive use of force, duty to intervene, and duty to render aid.

"As officers approached Tyre in his vehicle, a confrontation occurred, and Tyre fled the scene on foot. Officers pursued Tyre and again attempted to take the suspect into custody. Afterwards, Tyre complained of having shortness of breath, at which time an ambulance was called to the scene. Tyre was transported to St. Francis Hospital in critical condition."

Tyre "succumbed to his injuries" on January 10, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The bureau is investigating whether any of the officers committed criminal offences!!! 

The footage will first be shown to Nichols family and their attorney Ben Crump on Monday

Tyre leaves behind his son, Mother, Father, sisters, brothers and host of Aunt’s Uncles and Friends... 

We want Justice 

Justice for Tyre Nichols
