Lawyer Ben Crump Demands Memphis Mayor Paul Young Accept Tyre Nichols Ordinances Despite Ex-Mayor Warning They Are Illegal

Crump’s statement, made with attorney Antonio Romanucci, connected Nichols’ death to the death of George Floyd, and said the former may still be alive had the ordinances been passed sooner.

“We will hold Mayor Paul Young accountable to his pledge to enact these reforms,” Crump and Romanucci said. They asserted that changes to “police policies and practices” contained within the ordinances “are essential to establishing trust within communities and police.”

Noting their high-profile work on police reform since the death of George Floyd, the attorneys claimed, “Had changes to law enforcement policies been enacted in 2020, we strongly believe Tyre Nichols would be alive today.”
