Tyre Nichols’s death sparked reform. His parents must fight for it again.

Washington Post
March 15, 2024

Shortly after Tyre Nichols’s death following a traffic stop last year, his grieving parents sat with Gov. Bill Lee (R-Tenn.) inside a politician’s Memphis office, where they say the governor offered his support in their quest to pursue justice, said RowVaughn Wells, Nichols’s mother.

That’s a promise Wells wants to see fulfilled after the Republican-led state legislature Thursday moved to roll back Memphis traffic reforms that were sparked by Nichols’s death.

With the bill heading to the governor’s desk, Lee stands as the final recourse for Wells and her husband, Rodney, who are seeking an audience with the state’s top elected official — or one last bid to convince him to veto the legislation.
