Driving While Black
Leonard Allan Cure – who was exonerated from a wrongful life sentence he served 16 years of – was killed in Camden County, Georgia, during an ambiguously described traffic stop.
Angelo Black suffered brain damage after a Gwinnett cop tased him in "midair" and he landed on his head, a federal lawsuit claims.
The Memphis Fire Department fired three workers for failing to render aid to Tyre Nichols following a violent traffic stop on Jan. 7. They were previously "relieved of duty" pending the outcome of an investigation.
The white Memphis cop in the Tyre Nichols bodycam video heard hoping officers will "stomp his ass" is named "Detective Preston Hemphill," according to a new report. Only the Black cops have been fired, arrested and charged with murder.
A Memphis councilman who said he's been told about the bodycam video showing Tyre Nichols' violent arrest said the footage is "disgusting."
