SPRINGFIELD - State Senator Doris Turner (D-Springfield) released the following statement after the release of body camera footage of the brutal beating of Tyre Nichols in Memphis: 
"Seeing the footage of Tyre Nichols' brutal beating is extremely unsettling. Year after year, day after day, we continue to see brutal murders of Black and Brown people at the hands of police across the country. Enough is enough. This has to stop.
"We cannot continue to sit by and watch. Here in Illinois we have fought to end systemic racism, but there is more to do. My heart goes out to Tyre Nichols and his family. I will continue to fight for what is right."
