{WATCH} Tyre Nichols’ Stepfather Asks For Peace

Tyre Nichols’ parents are speaking out.  The family did an interview following the release of bodycam footage that shows the traffic stop beating that allegedly lead to their son’s death.

The New York Post reported from protested Danny Gatewood , 47 “I don’t agree with the family. They call for peaceful protests…but when do we start fighting? When do we take action?”

As a father himself, Gatewood continued, “I pray for the family. But I believe if that happened to my son I wouldn’t be calling for peace.”

Nichols died on January 10, three days after the traffic stop near his mother’s home. Five officers of the Memphis Police Department were fired and, on Thursday, were each indicted with charges of second-degree murder.
