Sheriff Fred Clark of Halifax County, Virginia, President of the Virginia Sheriffs’ Association issued the following statement on Tyre Nichols video:

On behalf of the Virginia Sheriffs’ Association (VSA), I offer my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Tyre Nichols. The images we all witnessed are shocking and unacceptable and tarnish the image of the law enforcement professionals that serve the public with dignity and respect.

The former officers must be held accountable, and justice must be fully served to begin the process of restoring the confidence in their community law enforcement efforts.

The VSA prays for peace and comfort for those most affected as the story of this tragedy continues to unfold.

The VSA denounces this horrific behavior in the strongest terms.
