5 black cops in the same city where civil rights activist Martin Luther king jr was killed, beat to death a 140lb black man who was unarmed and crying out for his mother, after they detained him for no good reason. The five black cops were unceremoniously denounced by the police department (the only “good” thing to happen in this whole mess), while the white officer whose body-cam footage has been all over the place was not disciplined, despite the lack of any attempt on his part to intervene in the cold-blooded killing his coworkers were committing.

It’s heinous.

ETA: I grew up in Memphis (where this happened) and wish I could say that I’m even slightly surprised by it, but it’s heartbreakingly and infuriatingly predictable.
