As of early Sunday morning, no one had been arrested during the protests in New York City over the death of Tyre Nichols in Memphis. This is another night of what seems to be a peaceful series of protests in a country that is still trying to figure out what happened after watching police body cam footage.
The streets of Manhattan were again full of protesters, and hundreds gathered at Washington Square Park. But there was no sign of chaos, even though people were chanting and there were a lot of cardboard signs. Images showed that Saturday night’s protests in Times Square were even better organised than Friday night’s, when one person jumped on top of an NYPD car.
According to the most recent information from the NYPD, three people were arrested for damaging that car. On the first night, these were the only people who were caught in the city. Almost as soon as the police video from Memphis came out, angry protesters filled Union Square and the Crossroads of the World.

Almost everyone in the U.S. has said something bad about it, and it has been criticised in every field and conflict of interest.
Memphis’s mayor, Eric Adams, said he “felt betrayed” by the officers who were charged in Nichols’s death. When Adams was an NYPD officer, he helped start an organisation that fought for diversity in policing and against abuses of power.
“Any officer who acts violently or cruelly hurts all the work we’ve done to keep people safe,” he said. “They make it harder for our military brothers and sisters to do the wonderful work they do every day.”
All five police officers involved in Nichols’ death have been charged with second-degree murder and other crimes. The charges were made public a day before the body cam footage was.
