Tyre Nichols Arrest Update Makes Memphis City Council Chairman Break Down
Latest entertainment gist
The graphic footage of cops beating Tyre Nichols has Memphis City Council Chairman Martavius Jones at a loss for words, and instead, he was overcome with emotion on live TV.
CNN’s Don Lemon interviewed Jones after the brutal police body cam footage was released to the public … and Jones tells Don the Update is especially hard to SEE because everyone knows Tyre dies in the end.
That thought made it impossible for Jones to finish his sentence — he broke down in tears, and needed a few minutes to compose himself.
As Don points out, lots of folks are having the same reaction to the Update … which shows cops punching, kicking and beating Tyre with a baton after pulling him over.
Tyre ended up in a hospital after the vicious beating … and he died 3 days later.
Jones tries to apologize for breaking down during the interview … but Don tells him it’s not necessary, because it’s a normal human reaction to such a brutal scene.
