History repeats itself/ The police beat a 29-year-old black man to death
"He can't breathe", George Floyd was whispering for help, when a policeman put his foot on his neck, until he died.
History has repeated itself. Only that the calls this time were: O ma, o my mother.
The Memphis Police Department has released shocking body camera footage of five police officers beating Tire Nichols to death after they pulled him over for reckless driving.
Video released Friday evening shows Nichols, 29, crying for his mother several times, which happened just 80 yards from his home.
Kicking, batons and pepper spray in the face. The ambulance came later and after being in the hospital for an hour and a half, he died.
All five officers involved in the shooting now face charges of second-degree murder.
Police across the country have prepared for possible, violent riots.
The event took place on January 7, but has now been published.
