As police release bodycam footage of officers brutally beating 29-year-old Tyre Nichols in Memphis, many people on social media are choosing not to watch the graphic images.

Instead of watching the brutal beating, some are sharing heartwarming clips of Nichols enjoying his favorite hobbies, including skateboarding.

At Blavity, we are choosing not to publish the video on our platforms and encourage our readers and followers to do what is best for them. After years of watching police violence play out on our screens, it is up to you to decide if it is necessary to view footage like this again.
