"Today and every day since we learned of the brutal murder of Tyre Nichols at the hands of Memphis police, he and his family and loved ones have been on my mind.
"As the nation braces for the release of what, by all accounts, is a simply horrific video, I know it stirs up many emotions. Today, Tyre Nichols' mother, RowVaughn Wells, asked a very poignant question: 'Where was the humanity?'
"Mrs. Wells talked about the love Tyre had for her, the impact of the loss on her family, and also noted, 'People try to say Black people only try to go after white officers. That's not true. We don't care what color the officer is. We want bad officers taken off the force.' Today, and every day, Black Lives Matter."
