Protesters march in Memphis after video of Tyree Nichols being beaten by police was released

Donald Trump has described the fatal beating of Tire Nichols as “terrible” and says it “never should have happened”.

The former president’s comments came one day after the Memphis publicly released video of the attack earlier this month.

Meanwhile, the five former police officers accused of killing Tier Nicholls will go on trial in mid-February. Court records show they are scheduled to appear for a “bond arraignment” on Feb. 17. Fox News reported on Sunday.

Tadarrius Bean, Demetrius Haley, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr and Justin Smith have since been fired from their positions and the Scorpion Special Unit they belonged to has been disbanded.

Their hearing will be presided over by Shelby County Criminal Court Judge James Jones.

The news came as Ben Crump, an attorney for the Nichols family, called for federal reform to stop the cycle of police killings of black people.

“Without federal police reform, I think we’re going to continue to see these hashtags spread so much … that we can’t deal with them,” he told ABC’sThis week‘.
