Marchers take to Sacramento streets in solidarity with others outraged by Tyre Nichols police beating video
The reaction came in real-time Friday to body camera videos from the violent interaction between Memphis police against former Sacramento man Tyre Nichols. A gathering outside California’s Capitol building was convened, organizers said, to support the community as Memphis police publicly released video of the Jan. 7 police beating. “The things that they were saying to that man, the verbal abuse that came with the physical abuse that I heard, my heart goes out to his mother,” said community activist Stevante Clark. “Matter of fact, she can have my whole heart.” Clark’s organization, the I Am SAC Foundation, named in honor of his late brother Stephon Clark who was killed by Sacramento police officers in March 2018, organized the gathering.
