Organizers say the march was meant to raise awareness of racial injustice across the United States. Unlike in Missouri, the protest in Savannah proceeded without incidents of violence or conflicts between protestors and police.
A Macon-Bibb Sheriff’s Deputy who was fired for disobeying direct orders from the Sheriff is asking to get his job back. Clayton Sutton was placed on desk duty and told not to act as a law enforcement officer in public earlier in the year. That order followed a patrol call where Sutton’s use of a his firearm was called into question and where a dog was killed while Sutton pursued a suspect. That call was what landed Sutton on desk duty. Later when he attempted to stop suspected metal thieves on the south side of Bibb County, Sheriff David Davis released him from the force.
