SAINT PAUL, Minn. – Following the release of bodycam footage by the city of Memphis of the violence that led to the death of Tyre Nichols, Senate Majority Leader Kari Dziedzic issued the following statement:
“The footage released tonight, and the circumstances of Tyre Nichols death are sickening. His life, as well as the life of George Floyd mattered, as well as the lives of far too many Black Americans who have died in similar circumstances.
“This is a stark reminder that our work to address injustice and brutality continues and remains urgent. I extend my sympathies on behalf of all Minnesotans to his family, and to the entire community of Memphis.”
