First, forgive me for this long lead.
Trust me, I will get to my point eventually.
But the death of Tyre Nichols and subsequent protests surrounding it need a proper set up.
What more can pundits say about the tragic death of Tyre Nichols at the hands of some Memphis, Tenn. police officers?
And for all that might say how can a person label what happened to Tyre Nichols as just a death and not a murder?
Well, a journalist cannot label someone a murderer until a judge and/or jury labels the alleged culprit(s) a murderer or murderers.
Therefore, a person like O.J. Simpson is not a murderer no matter what a person might think of him.
But seriously, what more can a person say about another Black man losing his life violently after what should have been a routine encounter with law enforcement?
