After viewing the video related to Tyre Nichols’s death, his parents spoke out.
Tyre Nichols’ shocking death shocked the internet after a video showing Memphis Police beating him as a human pinata surfaced.
Nichols, a resident of Memphis, was taken to the hospital after two tense encounters with the Police on January 7. He passed away on January 10.
Five Police officers were found to have violated several departmental rules during the stop, including those about the use of force, after an investigation.
Tyre Nichols’ family’s attorneys stated on Monday that they had viewed the video of the Police encounter a few days before Nichols passed away.
They alleged that the man had endured a brutal beating that was unadulterated, outright, and unrelenting, similar to Rodney King’s treatment at the hands of the Police.
Nichols, 29, was taken to the hospital after being stopped by the Police on January 7 in Memphis, Tennessee. He passed away three days later.
Tyre Nichols Parents: Mother Row Vaughn Wells And Father Rodney RowVaughn Wells
Tyre Nichols was born to his parents, Row Vaughn Wells and Rodney RowVaughn Wells.
He also has a brother and a sister. Right now, there is no information about his family’s private lives.
At the parcel delivery business FedEx, Nichols worked the second shift. Every night, around 7 o’clock, he would return to his mother’s House for his meal break, according to his family.
RowVaughn Wells, his mother, claimed he had a tattoo of her name on his arm. She also told the New York Times how proud she was of it. She continued by saying that her son was a lovely soul and that most children don’t write their mother’s name.
Meet Tyre Nichols Mother Row Vaughn Wells
Nichols seems to have had a stronger bond with his mother than with his Father.
According to statements they made to the media, the beating of Nichols by the Police was captured on video, and it can be seen that he called out to his mother repeatedly while it was happening about 100 yards from her House.
According to a statement from Police Chief C.J. Davis, five of the officers involved in the traffic stop were fired last week after an administrative investigation revealed that they had broken departmental rules.
On Monday, a spokesperson for the Memphis Fire Department, Qwanesha Ward, stated that two firefighters who assisted with Nichols’ initial patient care had been “relieved of duty” due to an internal investigation.
Tyre Nichols Father Rodney RowVaughn Wells
Rodney Row Vaughn is Tyre Nichols’s stepfather. Even if Rodney is not the biological Father of Nichols, he loves him like his own son.
During a protest in Memphis, Tennessee, Rodney Wells stood beside the hospital beside a picture of Nichols. No Father or mother should ever have to witness what Rodney claimed he saw on the video that day.
His stepfather, Rodney Wells, gave a picture of Nichols in the hospital with blood on his face and what appeared to be a swollen eye. According to his mother’s statement on Monday, he was put on a breathing machine.
