Protests over the death of George Floyd have now spread across the United States and the world. Unfortunately, demonstrations in some areas have given way to violence on both sides. In Minneapolis and Los Angeles, shops have been broken into and cars set alight by protesters. On the other hand, the police have been accused of being too heavy-handed and even arrested a CNN reporter.
With these images dominating headlines, it can be hard to see that the majority of protests are still going on peacefully. In many cities, police have joined demonstrators in their marches, and in others, there have been incredible scenes of people coming together to speak out.
In Flint, Michigan, Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson joined protesters in their march on Saturday.
"The only reason we're here is to make sure that you got a voice -- that's it," Swanson said. "These cops love you -- that cop over there hugs people."
Protesters asked Swanson to walk with them, to which he responded: "Let's go, let's go. Where do you want to walk? We'll walk all night."
