  1. This is just amazing to see that there’s still quality law enforcement officers out there. True *PEACE OFFICERS*
    Kudos to this man

  2. BLESSINGS AND SAFE PASSAGE FOR THIS SHERIFF! BALLS, COURAGE AND MOST IMPORTANT…. HUMANITY
    THIS IS WHAT AMERICA SHOULD BE..
    NOT> AMERICA vs AmeriKKKa

    1. 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!

    2. @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 🙂

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

    1. He actually is. Sheriff is an elected position and he’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.

    2. 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.

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

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

    1. 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!!!!

    2. @Butter Pecan you are committing LIBEL against that righteous man. Thank you screenshotted . HE’S A BETTER BRAVER PERSON THAT YOU WHO GIVES AF IF HE LIVES IN A WHITE AREA. THIS IS AN ISSUE OF HUMAN RIGHTS. ALSO HE DID THE RIGHT THING N JOINED THE RIGHT SIDE HE TOOK A STAND AGAINST INJUSTICE. SEEMS LIKE SOMEONE IS THE FAME SEEKING ATTENTION SEEKING 1 YOU HATER. LET HIM SHINE HATER. HE’S WELCOME AND HAS MORAL COUAGE KENNEDY TALKED ABOUT. BY THE WAY FULLLERTON, C.A. A WHITE MAN SON OF A SHERIFF WAS BRUTALLY ANIMALISTICALLY BEATEN TO DEATH MURDERED BY THE FULLERTON POLICE DEPARTMENT OFFICERS 4 OF THOSE HEARTLESS PIGS TOOK THE LIFE OF “KELLY THOMAS” CAUGHT ON CAMERA HE WAS HARMELESS +
      HOMELESS(OBVIOUSLY)+
      HAD A MENTAL HEALTH ISSUE

  6. I really like seeing Police and citizens getting along. we need more cops like Sheriff Swanson who really care about the community and want to make a positive impact.

  7. We need more Sheriff’s like him. He’s one amazing human being. God bless him and his family.
