Nichols was a 29 year old black man, father of 1 and was described by friends and family as an all around good guy. On Friday, January 7th, he was pulled over in Memphis for what police claim as reckless driving. After attempting to flee on foot due to fear, he was quickly captured, handcuffed, and then brutally beaten by 5 officers while many more officials stood by and did nothing. Nichols was given over 70 commands in 13 minutes making it nearly impossible for him to comply, especially while handcuffed.
