Shortly after the Memphis Police Department released video Friday night showing five of its officers wildly beating the life out of an unarmed, 29-year-old, amateur photographer named Tyre Nichols, the president of Maryland’s Fraternal Order of Police issued a statement. “What I witnessed in that video was horrific. It was a barbaric assault on another human being and is sickening,” the statement from Clyde Boatwright said. “This does not represent policing or the men and women who wear a badge and dutifully protect their communities. I hesitate to even call these men police officers, because what I saw on that video is not policing.”
