On Friday, authorities in Memphis released footage showing Tyre Nichols, a Black motorist, being beaten by police officers. 

The video shows the officers, who are also Black, chasing and striking Nichols with their fists, boots, 

and batons as he pleads for them to stop and screams for his mother.

The officers were then seen fist-bumping and celebrating their actions.

The footage came to light one day after the officers were charged with murder in Nichols' death.

The incident has prompted protests in multiple cities, including Memphis, where demonstrators blocked a major bridge, 

and in Washington, D.C. where dozens of protestors gathered in Lafayette Park near the White House.

The Nichols family's legal team has compared the assault to the 1991 police beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles.
