Just another poor innocent Dindu beaten to death by the cops.
Local Memphis Looter-American Tyre Nichols, who wuz a good boy and dindu nuffin wrong, was nevertheless beset upon by five fellow Looter-American po-leece who engaged in a little pre-trial punitive action, allegedly beating him so badly that he died a few days later.
This be Tyre, the usual smiling face and dressed up picture families always find.
Tyre was apparently pulled over for reckless driving and then took off. At some point all five of the fellas got in some licks on Tyre and he was in critical condition when he was taken to a local hospital where he subsequently died. For good measure two members of the Memphis Fire Department were also fired for reasons I haven’t seen yet.
The video of what happened is set to be released tomorrow night apparently. It seems like a great idea to release a video of a black dude being beaten to death on a Friday night, I am sure that famous self-control will keep a lid on things. A local news report quoting an attorney for the family claims he was beaten for three minutes by the cops, which doesn’t sound like a long time unless you are the one getting beaten by five dudes. The same local news story claims that at least some of the cops involved were part of a special police unit…
Some of the officers involved have been identified as belonging to an MPD unit called SCORPION, which stands for Street Crimes Operation to Restore Peace in Our Neighborhoods.
The unit launched in November 2021 and focuses on preventing auto theft and gang-related violence and was structured to have some coordination with the Multi-Agency Gang Unit.
I guess they restored some peace that night. I expect the video is going to show at least five cops going apeshit on this guy, and while there isn’t an excuse for beating someone to death I do hope that the entire video is played to see what led up to his death.
Regardless of what the video shows, you can be sure this is all somehow my fault.
Well, I mean, DUH. Ahh, but there’s something of an unanticipated twist to this particular story, one you’ll want to click on over to Arthur’s place to find out about.
Chimpout update! And so it begins.
WATCH: Tyre Nichols protesters block freeway traffic in Memphis
‘Stand up, fight back,’ Tyre Nichols protesters shout as they block traffic on a freeway bridge
MEMPHIS – Tyre Nichols protesters blocked traffic on a Memphis freeway Friday night after video was released showing police beating the young Black man as they attempted to arrest him.
“Stand up, fight back,” the protesters chanted on the I-55 bridge, video captured by Fox News shows.
Protesters gathered and marched after an hour of video footage was released showing police beat Nichols. The 29-year-old was hospitalized after the encounter, but died three days later.
“We shuttin’ it down,” one protester can be heard shouting.
“By any means necessary,” another said.
Dey be demandin’ jussis ’n’sheeeit, yo. Looting to follow, although the article notes that businesses in downtown Memphis have wisely boarded up their street-level windows in anticipation of the impending conflagration.
Updated chimpout update! Wilder comments thusly, and I quote:
Wow! Nike shoes, 100% off!
What can one say but: Heh.
Fanning the flames update! Glenn quips:
Here we have a black man, killed by black officers in a majority-black city run by Democrats, the offending police have all been charged and the authorities seem to be taking the crime quite seriously, but everyone expects riots all over because…well, just because.
I don’t suppose the news media have anything to do with that.
No, of course not. Perish the thought.

But…but…but…all the best people have long assured me that it is literally impossible for any black person to be Rayciss™! If the hypocritical jackwagons couldn’t contradict themselves twelve times before lunch every day, they’d be left entirely unable to speak at all.
I’m out of give a damn’s. You reap what you sew, and the black folks in this country have created a climate that leads to this result.
If they riot and burn the damn city to the ground, I don’t care.
If they riot and destroy all the local grocery stores, I don’t care.
If they riot and destroy all the residences, I don’t care.
If you’re a city cop, quit. Get the fuck out of those places. Go find a job as a deputy sheriff out in the country somewhere.
The sooner the cops leave, the sooner the self destruction is complete. On the ashes perhaps something resembling civilization can be built.
A consummation devoutly to be wished.
But … muh pension!
I worked in the Glamour Slammer at 201 Poplar 30 years ago. I was a civilian taking I Mug shots and fingerprints and doing fingerprint searches before they got the computers to do it. The MPD and SCSD were very pro affirmative action back then. They treated black inmates and officers with kid gloves.
It was called the Glamour Slammer cause the inmates didn’t have to do anything but watch TV and eat if they didn’t want to. No picking peas at the penal farm. No continuing education classes if you didn’t feel like it. One joker had been out three days and showed up at the Sally Port wanting to be let back in. He rammed a car into it and was arrested for destruction of County property.
It’s magic that all five cops of the same race can be racist against themselves. Was it a bug going round?
Yea, the racistVirus. It’s caused by white people. Everything bad is caused by white people.
