I Just Watched Tyre Nichols being Killed.
At this moment I am ashamed to admit I was once a police officer.
I’m sitting here bawling like a big ole baby. So many of us, when there’s nothing left to hope for or expect, start calling for our moms, as Tyre did in the last cognizant minutes of his life. Cops can tell you, many, many people call for their mothers when they are desperate and out of options. I’ve heard it many times as we were marching someone to jail, or as we arrested someone.
