Protesters to police: "Walk with us!"

In the photo below, Johnie Franklin of Flint, Michigan, takes a selfie with Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson as he marches with protesters against police brutality recently in Flint Township. Sheriff Swanson spoke with demonstrators who were met by police officers in riot gear. He said, "The only reason we're here is to make sure that you got a voice."

"These cops love you," he said. "That cop over there hugs people." The crowd 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 go? We'll walk all night."
