I won’t watch the Tyre Nichols video. I already know how terrible things are.
Before you ask, no, I have not watched that video. I’m never going to. I have spent the last week ducking any social media post or television broadcast that even hints that it’s going to show the brutal murder of Tyre Nichols, an unarmed man whose beating death by Memphis police has sparked yet another passionate round of shock and horror that these things keep happening. I don’t know why you’re shocked. Because they keep happening.
