Tyre Nichols Funeral

Tyre Nichols, the man who died due to the escapades of the police, who are deemed to protect the citizens, was indeed a piece of startling news to the whole world. Per his autopsy, Tyre Nichols died of “excessive bleeding due to beating”. And now Tyre Nichols’s parents and friends have gathered to say the final goodbye to the FedEx driver, who had to die at the hands of five policemen. Let us briefly look at the funeral and learn more about it. 

Funeral Held For Tyre Nichols

At the Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church, the heart-melt funeral took place around 1 pm local time, and umpteen mourners were flooded to attend the funeral. It was Rev. Al Sharpton who delivered the soul-crushing eulogy and the honourable Vice President Kamala Harris participated in the funeral.

The funeral service of Tyre Nichols was held for five days, after the City of Memphis released the heart-writhing videos depicting the brutality of the police on this poor man on January 7, 2023. After the release of the video, imperatively the Memphis Police Department’s Scorpion unit arrested five members from their own group and were charged with second-degree murder, and revoked from their position. 

After five days of funeral service, it ended on Wednesday, when the bereaving family of the deceased left the ceremony and other mourners at the ceremony stood and watched them leaving with a perforated leaden heart. 

As Nichol’s family left the service, a soloist sang the song of Sam Cooke’s A Change Is Gonna Come, and also the choir concluded with ‘oh How Precious’, the single gospel song that umpteen artists have recorded. 

It was profoundly sad to see Tyre Nichol’s casket lying there with a bouquet of white flowers. The Rev. Al Sharpton reached out to other family members present at the ceremony who lost their beloved ones due to the unimaginable atrocity of police and Kamala Harris reached out to Congress to pass the George Floyd justice and policing act. 

In addition to the eulogy, Rev. Al Sharpton said of the mourning Nichols family: “They will never ever recover from the loss. Every holiday, there will be a missing chair at their table. Every day this mother and father and brothers and sisters will have to remember he is gone. But we will never leave them”. 

The honourable US President Joe Biden has reached out to the mourning parents of Tyre Nichols and said: “Like so many, I was outraged and deeply pained to see the horrific video of the beating that resulted in Tyre Nichol’s death. It has a lot to say and do with the image of America. It has a lot to do with whether or not we are the country that we say we are”

Joe Biden has invited Tyre Nichol’s parents to the upcoming State of the Union address to Congress on February 7, and they are expected to be the attendees of the event.

The Mourning Tyre Nichols’ parents were profoundly sad and at the same time outraged due to the justice denied. They are really trying hard to cope with this tragic situation that life has thrown upon them and are really looking forward to having justice for their son.

The bereaving mother exclaimed: “Because there should be no other child that should suffer the way my son and all the other parents here that have lost their children. What’s done in the dark will always come to the light, and the light of day is justice for Tyre, justice for all the families that have lost loved ones to the brutality of police or anybody”. As she spoke, Nichol’s mother broke down in tears, as her heart could not hold the immeasurable weight of loss. 

Tyre Nichol’s stepfather also remarked about getting justice for all the families out there who lost their sons or daughters to these sorts of atrocities. Moreover, Tyre Nichols’ sister also added that: “My brother was robbed of his life, his passions and his talents, but not his light. I see the world showing him love and fighting for his justice, but all I want is for my baby brother back. My family will never be the same, and I will just always love my baby brother, forever”

What Happened To Tyre Nichols?

 It is indeed a shame to describe this brutality to the world, as the ensuing prosecution of five vile police officers who beat to death a citizen. It was on January 7, 2023, that Tyre Nichols was stopped by the police who claimed that he was recklessly over speed. So in the first confrontation with the police, Tyre Nichols tried to run away, but after the second confrontation, things turned pretty upside down.

The police officers claimed that Tyre Nichols complained of uneasiness in breathing and so he was rushed to the hospital. But after suffering the pain for three days, he died. When the autopsy report came, the truth came to light and the police officers were soon arrested and charged with second-degree murder, official misconduct, aggravated assault, and aggravated kidnapping. 

The five monstrous police officers are, Teddarius Bean, Demetrius Haley, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr, and Justin Smith, and they were immediately revoked of their position was arrested, by asserting justice shall prevail. The evidence would stand strong in the court and the attorney for Tyre Nichols is pretty much confident that the responsible five persons would get the deserving punishment and jusctice won’t be denied for the Nichols bereaving family.
