Tyre Nichols’ murder raises questions about policing; Sacramento officials reflect

The death of Tyre Nichols is raising questions and concerns about policing around the country, including in Sacramento, where Nichols grew up in.

The 29-year-old died on Jan. 10 after Memphis police officers beat him during a traffic stop. The officers are now charged with his murder.

“We continuously are training our law enforcement personnel to have this warrior mentality to treat every single person they encounter as an enemy combatant effectively,” said Keyan Bliss, vice chair of the Sacramento Community Police Review Commission.

The commission is a group comprising civilians that provides oversight of the Sacramento Police Department.
