Statement from Sheriff Nicole Morrisey O’Donnell:
(January 27, 2023) - The actions by the former Memphis, Tennessee, police officers are sickening; they are inhumane and indefensible. Frankly, the death of Tyre Nichols should have never happened. These officers used excessive force, failed to intervene, and neglected to call for immediate medical attention.
