Police in several cities around the country joined in solidarity with peaceful protesters. Chris Swanson is the sheriff in Flint, Michigan. He gave a pretty impassioned speech, telling people that the police are on their side. Then he and a bunch of other cops marched with them.
He put his weapon down and said, I want to make this a parade, not a protest.
He continued, the only reason we’re here is to make sure that you got a voice-that’s it.
The crowd chanted, walk with us!”
To which he answered, let’s go!
The video went viral with many saying “this is what we need.”
Do you think more officers have to get back into the community at a grassroots level? Less talk and more action like the sheriff in Michigan?
