We air excerpts from the funeral of Tyre Nichols, whose death on January 10 after a brutal police beating sparked protests across the country. "On the night of January 7, my brother was robbed of his life, his passions and his talents — but not his light," said Nichols's sister Keyana Dixon. We also feature remarks from Reverend Al Sharpton and Vice President Kamala Harris. "This violent act was not in pursuit of public safety," said Harris. "It was not in the interest of keeping the public safe, because, one must ask: Was not it in the interest of keeping the public safe that Tyre Nichols would be with us today?"
