SOUNDBITE (English) Jason Turner, senior pastor of Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church in Memphis:"I don't see any human being watching it and not coming away saying, this is man's inhumanity to man."++EDIT ENDS ON SOUNDBITE++STORYLINE:An unarmed Black man dies after a videotaped beating by police. The officers involved are fired. After a thorough review of the evidence, criminal charges are swiftly filed against the offending officers.Investigation, accountability and charges.This is often the most Black citizens can hope for as the deaths continue. Nationwide, police have killed roughly three people per day consistently since 2020, according to academics and advocates for police reform who track such deaths.Tyre Nichols' fatal encounter with police officers in Memphis, Tennessee, recorded in video made public Friday night, is a glaring reminder that efforts to reform policing have failed to prevent more flashpoints in an intractable epidemic of brutality.George Floyd's murder in Minneapolis in 2020 was so agonizing to watch, it summoned a national reckoning that featured federal legislation proposed in his name and shows of solidarity by corporations and sports leagues. All fell short of the shift in law enforcement culture Black people in America have called for — a culture that promotes freedom from fear, trust in police and mutual respect."We need public safety, right? We need law enforcement to combat pervasive crime," said Jason Turner, senior pastor of Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church in Memphis. "Also, we don't want the people who are sworn to protect and serve us brutalizing us for a simple traffic stop, or any offense."The five Black officers are now fired and charged with murder and other crimes in the January 10 death of Nichols, a 29-year-old skateboarder, FedEx worker and father to a 4-year-old boy.The videotaped beating has left the city of Memphis and the nation struggling to make sense of his death and questioning a culture of brutality and excessive force in policing that has often targeted Black people. Despite steps toward accountability and efforts to reform police tactics nationwide in the last several years, deaths of Black people at the hands of police continue to mount, regardless of the race of the officers. "Put the focus on the person who is being policed and their ethnicity," said the Rev. Earle Fisher, senior pastor of the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Memphis. "I thought police were blue lives, anyways. Isn't that what people were saying several years ago? So, at that time it didn't matter if they were Black or white or brown. They were blue."Pastor Turner called the video "further proof that our city's and our nation's criminal justice systems are in dire need of change." "I don't see any human being watching it and not coming away saying, this is man's inhumanity to man," he said. ===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
