Biden 'outraged, pained' by Memphis beating video

United States President Joe Biden said he is "outraged and deeply pained" after seeing the video of the beating that led to the death of the 29-year-old FedEx worker Tyre Nichols on January 10.

"Those who seek justice should not resort to violence or destruction. Violence is never acceptable; it is illegal and destructive. I join Mr. Nichols’ family in calling for peaceful protest," Biden noted in a statement released by the White House. The footage, which came out earlier today, shows Memphis police beating Nichols for three minutes while inappropriately yelling at him.

"Real and lasting change will only come if we take action to prevent tragedies like this from ever happening again. That is why I called on Congress to send the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act to my desk," Biden's statement concluded.
