Another Peaceful Protest In Downtown Findlay

People gathered outside the Hancock County Courthouse on Saturday for a sixth straight day of protesting George Floyd’s death by a Minneapolis police officer and racial injustice.

Saturday’s event featured speakers like Nina Parker, founder of the Black Heritage Library and Multicultural Center in Findlay, Findlay Mayor Christina Muryn and others.

We spoke with Marcus at the event.

The 24-year-old was born and raised in Findlay and still lives here.

He says keeping these protests peaceful is their main priority.

Marcus is calling on the Findlay Police Department to start using body cameras and to get some diversity on the police force.

Marcus says they plan to continue holding protests up until there is a guilty verdict for the police officers involved in George Floyd’s death.

As part of the protest, the crowd marched to the University of Findlay and back.
