Jim Jordan slammed for ‘particularly offensive’ remarks about Tyre Nichols’ beating death


During an appearance on “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) expressed dismay at the beating death of 29-year-old Tyre Nichols at the hands of five Memphis police officers — and then dismissed the idea that new laws need to be implemented to stop police abuse.

Speaking with host Chuck Todd, the Ohio Republican stated, “I don’t know that there’s any law that can stop that evil that we saw,” before later adding, “But no amount of training’s going to change what we saw in that video.”

That led GOP campaign consultant Susan Del Percio to pounce on the new House Judiciary Committee chairman for blowing off the idea that changes need to be made.

“Yes, there are things that we can do federally, there are things that need to be looked at,” she lectured. “Such as qualified immunity — getting rid of that.”
