The Black Political Empowerment Project (B-PEP) continues to mobilize in response to the brutal murder of Tyre Nichols by members of the Memphis Police.
Talking with WTAE, Tim Stevens, Chairman / CEO of B-PEP, noted the culture of police violence. “No one said stop? So, there is a culture. Again, not every officer. Many officers are ashamed tonight, I’m sure, to wear the uniform and be connected to these people, but there has to be a no-nonsense approach by mayors throughout the nation, superintendents of police throughout the nation, that anything in the ballpark of this is absolutely not acceptable” .
Tim Stevens, Chairman / CEO of B-PEP, offers his comments to WPXI on the murder of Tyre Nichols on January 27, 2023.
Speaking to WPXI, Stevens noted “There can be no allowance anywhere in the nation for police officers to use their awesome powers to abuse, beat and at times kill citizens,”
Stevens is calling on Pittsburgh Police to ensure similar tragedies do not happen here.
