    A Sheriff Put Down His Baton to Listen to Protesters. They Chanted 'Walk With Us,' So He Did 200531115919-03-floyd-protest-flint-0530-exlarge-169

    Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson spoke with demonstrators who were met by police officers in riot gear, local affiliate WEYI reported.

    "The only reason we're here is to make sure that you got a voice -- that's it," Swanson said in video clips shown on Twitter.

    "These cops love you -- that cop over there hugs people," he said, pointing to an officer.

    He was speaking to the crowd protesting police brutality and the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

    He smiled and high-fived people in the crowd, who responded by chanting, "walk with us!"

    So, he did.

    "Let's go, let's go," Swanson said as he and the cheering crowd proceeded. "Where do you want to walk? We'll walk all night."

    Flint has drawn national attention for its water crisis, which began in 2014, when city and state officials switched the city's water supply to save money. It exposed residents to dangerously high levels of lead and resulted in more than a dozen lawsuits.

    But Saturday's event offered a welcome contrast to violent confrontations in cities across the country.

    People took to social media to champion Swanson's actions.

    "This is the correct response from police #WalkWithUs," Gwen Campbell tweeted.



    JJ Milliken, another Swanson supporter, said via Twitter: "#WalkWithUs is how we change a system that murdered #GeorgeFloyd. It requires mindfulness of our actions and beliefs. Chris Swanson exemplifies the deputies and officers I know and respect. Community-first mentality and lead by example. This is a mindful action. This is change."



    CNN is attempting to reach the Genesee County Sheriff's office for comment.

    On Friday Swanson addressed George Floyd's death via a Facebook post.

    "I join with the chorus of citizens and law enforcement officials alike, calling for the swift arrest and prosecution of each police officer involved in this appalling crime," he wrote. "The actions we witnessed on that video destroy countless efforts to bolster community policing efforts across our nation, and erode trust that is painstakingly built."

    This is exactly what change looks like. It's like I've been saying in discussions on social media, while I don't condone the riots, the violence and the looting, I have to say that this is a case of "We tried this with a peaceful protest. We tried this with just merely talking about it. We tried this with boycotts. This is our only recourse left. #DoWeHaveYourAttentionNow?"

    Of course, I'm gonna get some backlash for this, but the question here is how many more unarmed black men have to be killed before actual change happens. How long before #AllLivesMatter actually means that #BlackLivesMatter just as much as anyone else? When we can answer that and actually take steps to make change in our communities, then we can live in the peace and harmony that we all have the right to.

    Just Saying.
