The city of Memphis is bracing for the release of police video of an arrest that led to the death of Tyre Nichols.
Nichols died in hospital days after being pulled over for alleged reckless driving on January 7.
In an emotional interview with CNN, Nichols’ parents described how the 29-year-old was beaten to a pulp; they say the video will show him being kicked like a football.
During the same interview, the family’s lawyer, Ben Crump, said America will hear Nichols’ gut-wrenching screams for his mother.
Memphis police chief Cerelyn Davis has described the incident as a failing of basic humanity.
The five police officers involved in the incident have been fired and are facing murder charges.
