A sheriff in Michigan joined protestors and marched for George Floyd.  

Bunch of people were protesting peacefully in Flint, Michigan and their Sheriff joined in.

Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson joined the crowd and walked with them side by side.

“We can’t forget on all our police cars across the nation it says, ‘protect and serve,’” Swanson said. “That means all people, that means all people deserves the same dignity. If you can’t call out what’s wrong, try to make it right. And that’s the magic we saw tonight. Nobody’s arrested, nobody got hurt. This is how it’s supposed to be.”

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 has gone viral with many saying this is what we need.
