On January 10th another innocent Black man met a violent end at the hands of the Memphis Police Department.
Tyre Nichols was two minutes from home when he was stopped without reason by members of the Memphis PD SCORPION Unit. He was harassed, pulled from his car, beaten, pepper sprayed & tased. The officers then bludgeoned the poor man to death in his own neighborhood while Tyre tried to seek shelter at his mother’s home.
From a very early age Tyre’s love of skating and other community activities impressed his mother so much so that she recalled Tyre “Marching to the beat of his own drum.”
Now, Tyre’s mom, upon passing the location everyday on her way to work will relive that dreadful day.
Once again the capitalist state apparatus has denied another African-American child their father; a mother is denied a son and a community is denied the dreams of a new generation.
The Party of Communists USA, along with the majority of the Black community, declares ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
These officers (including the police chief) must be fired and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!
