      Amen

      I’d love to protest peacefully but I’m white and fear I won’t be wanted.My friends feel the same way, we are fearful we will end up in a riot. Stupid thinking maybe?? I appreciate the abilities. Of the sheriff, grrrreat job!

      @Kristin Kitti Not all whites are the same, we understand that, and if you’d go out their as a white person and show you are with us even known you white, would make things better ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. We need more cops like this man

  5. That was an example of a real sheriff, protect and serve the community. That man should run for office.

      He actually is. Sheriff is an elected position and heโ€™s running to keep his position. They decide priorities police focus on too (some can decide if they want to avoid low level drug offenses or prioritize community outreach). I believe a majority of sheriffs in the country rerun unopposed too.

    • Kevin O’Reilly Hope is not a re-election ploy. The only cops I trust are the ones that will still be standing with black people at the end of this.

  6. If we had more like him we would be going through what weโ€™re going through now. He should be commended you can see that he has compassion

    When he layed his firearm down I saw a homeboy pick it up and stashed it.

    Such a ballsy and brilliant move. Great leaders lead!

  11. This is the ONLY WAY to quiet down a riot.

    ALL COPS NEED TO DO THIS!

  12. That’s what a real peace officer looks like.
    Bravo.

      He is our temp sheriff Chris Swanson, here in Flint, MI. He is an attention seeking person. He doesn’t even live in Flint but in a 91% white area in Genesee County. Everything he does is for attention!!!!
