Protests erupt following release of video showing Memphis officers beating Tyre Nichols

Protesters have taken to the streets on Friday following the release of the video showing Memphis police officers beating Tyre Nichols, who died three days later. In Memphis, protesters shut down Interstate 55. The protesters scaled walls and stopped cars while they were on the streets. They were yelling, "Justice for Tyre Nichols." The protesters said they intend to remain peaceful, but they wanted to express their support for Nichols and their disgust with the officers seen beating him. Similar protests were taking place across the country. In Washington, D.C., protesters were shouting "No Justice. No Peace." In New York City and Philadelphia, protesters were calling for those involved in beating and arrest of Nichols to be held accountable.
