Authorities in Memphis have released video showing Black motorist Tyre Nichols being beaten by five police officers who held him down and repeatedly struck him with fists, batons and boots. The footage released Friday also shows the Black officers pummeling the 29-year-old and leaving him propped against a squad car as they fist-bump and celebrate their actions. The officers have been charged with murder in the assault that the Nichols family legal team likened to the infamous 1991 police beating of Los Angeles motorist Rodney King. The chilling images of another Black man dying at the hands of police provoked tough questions about the nation’s policing culture.

In case you missed it

A proposed bill to deny gender-affirming care to young transgender people in Montana drew emotional testimony in a Friday hearing. Supporters argued it is needed to protect children, and opponents called it government overreach that would harm transgender children by denying them medically necessary treatment. The bill threatens health care providers with the loss of their license for a year if they use puberty blockers, hormones or surgery to treat transgender minors. A similar bill failed in the 2021 Legislature after receiving strong opposition from medical experts, human rights advocates and the transgender community. Sen. John Fuller's bill would also ban Montana Medicare payments for medication or surgical treatments for transgender minors.
